A rare opportunity to acquire a four bedroom detached family home in need of modernisation situated on a generous plot on the the much sought after and highly regarded coastal road.
This charming 1950's detached house is offered to the market for the very first time and is being sold with a heavy heart. Constructed from brick and rendered elevations under a pan tiled roof, this home currently offers 1494 Sq. Ft of living accommodation and offers the potential to substantially increase the footprint (subject to the necessary planning permissions) creating a home of your dreams to enjoy for many years to come.
The property is in need of total renovation throughout offering the ideal opportunity for the purchaser to bring their own style and vision to this unique location. The accommodation in brief, comprises; entrance hall, cloakroom, living room, dining room and kitchen. The first floor features four bedrooms with the master bedroom and a family bathroom which completes the internal accommodation. Outside, the property sits nicely in mature gardens with ample space to the front, sides 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. The property is approached over a stone chipped driveway with access to the single garage which is attached to the rear of the property.
With homes of this nature rarely available, coupled with the potential and unique location, Goodman & Lilley anticipate a good degree of interest.
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 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 Sainsbury'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.
