A rare opportunity to acquire a detached family home situated on the much sought after and highly regarded address of Battery Lane.
This charming 1930's detached house is offered to the market for the first time in nearly six decades and is being sold with a heavy heart. Constructed from brick and rendered elevations under a pitched tiled roof, the property is in need of some renovation throughout offering the opportunity for the purchaser to bring their own style and vision to this unique location. The accommodation in brief currently comprises; entrance hall, cloakroom, living room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room. To the first floor are three bedrooms, family bathroom and a balcony that affords outstanding views of the Lake Grounds and towards the Bristol Channel. This home really is a one off with potential to substantially increase the foot print (subject to the necessary planning permissions) creating a home of your dreams to enjoy for many years to come.
Outside, the property sits nicely in mature, landscaped gardens and grounds, with space to the front, side and to the rear of the house providing significant room to extend without over developing the plot. The gardens are delightful and would not be compromised by enlarging the house, offering a wonderful space to sit and relax and entertain in the warmer summer months whilst benefiting from a private pathway to the Lake Grounds and panoramic views of the estuary and the Welsh coastline. The gardens and grounds are estuary and Lake Ground facing and are certainly extensive and reach down to Rodmoor Road offering huge potential to split the land and build another dwelling which would have its own separate access with double garage and gated driveway. (Subject To The Necessary Planning Approvals) The property also has a generous driveway which is accessed from Battery Lane.
With homes of this nature rarely available, coupled with the potential and unique location, Goodman & Lilley anticipate a good degree of interest.
The convenient location makes it the ideal choice for a variety of purchasers providing easy access to both Portishead's traditional High Street and the delights that the Marina has to offer with a selection of bars and restaurants to enjoy in both locations. The family buyer will warm to the nearby Lake Grounds allowing children the perfect space to explore or enjoy the various sporting activities they have to offer, or simply enjoy a picnic during those warm summer months.
Portishead itself has seen great investment over the last five years, adding to its popularity and facilities which include a stunning Marina, Waitrose supermarket, a recently refurbished Lido as well as a number of small boutiques, eateries and larger facilities. Portishead is increasingly popular with families and couples who embrace the outdoor life, many taking advantage of the good schools, golf course, coastal walks as well as access to the M5 motorway network at junction 19. For commuters Bristol city centre is 10 miles away and Bristol Temple Meads or Parkway offer high speed train links to London Paddington in 90 minutes. Bristol International airport has flights throughout the world and is some 12 miles to the South of the property.
