On entering the property you're greeted with a welcoming entrance hall, estuary facing and filled with an abundance of natural light.

A pantry and utility room are located off of the kitchen. The living room resides along the rear elevation of the property and adjoins the kitchen/dining room and enjoys a southerly orientation with French doors opening to the garden. The room is warmed by radiators and a wood burning stove. The bedroom is at the far end of the property and is currently used as a music room but has been included as a bedroom on our floor plan. The four-piece bathroom serves the ground floor and is fitted with both a shower and a bath.
The first floor landing is light and airy in its appearance and has ample space to position a home office whilst providing access to three double bedrooms all of which have estuary views. A family bathroom serves this floor and completes the internal accommodation.
Externally, the property sits on a substantial 3/4 of an acre plot which is predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature flowering shrubs and ornamental trees. The gardens and grounds enjoy a southerly orientation and backs on to a copse which offers a high degree of privacy. The property is approached from a private driveway that leads up from Nore Road up to the parking bay and garage. As the plot is substantial this area could be made much larger to incorporate parking for several vehicles.
The name Portishead derives from the port at the head of the river . The town was built on the mouth of a small tributary of the Severn Estuary near the mouth of the River Avon. The old mill or jetty provided protection for craft against the Bristol Channel's large tidal range and iron rings can be seen in the High Street, at which fishing boats used to moor.
Today, Portishead is one of Europe's fastest growing towns, with the recent re-development of the docks, formerly occupied by two power stations. One of the major changes that have shaped the towns rapid development is the conversion of a traditional deep water dock into a new Marina, housing some 245 yachts and cabin cruisers. The original dock enabled ships to supply coal to the two adjacent power stations. Since then, the Marina has become a waterfront development known as Port Marine, incorporating an area built in the style of a fishing village, which is modelled on the Cornish seaside town of Polperro with narrow streets and multi-coloured houses. New waterside bars and restaurants have opened, and further shops, bars and restaurants are scheduled to open in the near future. Portishead is served by a wide range of local amenities found at the traditional Victorian High Street with banks, cafes, a Post Office and convenience stores including a selection of supermarkets such as Waitrose and a Sainbury's.
The town is lucky enough to enjoy first class gastro pubs, highlights of which are The Royal Pub and The Windmill, both enjoying panoramic views of the Channel. Lastly, the area is particularly well known for its renowned schooling in both the state and private sector with a variety of Primary Schools to choose from and Gordano Senior School: notably The Downs School is also located within 7 miles of the house.
