The gardens historically were included in Portishead's 'open gardens' and really are a delight.
The convenient location makes it the ideal choice to a variety of purchasers, with 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, providing children the perfect space to explore or play the various sporting activities the 'Lake Grounds' has to offer or enjoy a picnic during those warm summer months.

The established cottage style gardens are the crowning feature to the property and lie to the rear of the property and extend to the side of the property offering a good plot and further potential. The established gardens and grounds were regularly shown in Portishead's 'open gardens' and well stocked with deep planted floral, flowering shrub and specimen trees that occupy the borders. The property would benefit from being extended to the rear to double the internal footprint which would not be detrimental to the gardens and grounds. The garden also presents the opportunity to have enough space to build another dwelling to the side with a parking created to the side of the cottage for both properties.
