4 bed cottage for sale in West End, Nr, Nailsea, North Somerset (ref: 8350513)

** Unexpectedly available again due to chain break **

A beautifully positioned XVIIIth century detached period cottage occupying a prominent position with mostly walled gardens of over 1/2 acre and far reaching views in this highly desirable rural but not isolated setting. This delightful property offers extensive accommodation that is enriched with many attractive period features and has a very welcoming atmosphere.

This very special property presents a once in a generation opportunity to acquire a well proportioned period home in a lovely position having been cherished and very much enjoyed by the present owner for over thirty years. The existing accommodation is already generous and includes a reception hall, a bright south facing living room, a dining room that again enjoys an outloook to the south. There is a family room or large study, a double aspect farmhouse kitchen, a utility room, and a cloakroom - shower room on the ground floor. A double dog leg staircase rises to the first floor where the principal bedroom has a bathroom en suite. There are 3 further double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.

Outside the gardens are level and adjoin open countryside with an enclosed kitchen garden, a stone privy, the shell of two former stone outbuildings and a detached Garage that was probably formerly a coach house with stable complete with hayloft adjoining.

The charming hamlet of West End is one of the most aspired to addresses in the area that is roughly centred on the legendary Blue Flame pub that is just a couple of hundred yards from the property. A good number of the surrounding properties including South Common Farm, The Chestnuts, The Old Manor and the magnificent Nailsea Court, (a Grade I Elizabethan masterpiece), rank as some of the finest residential properties in the parish and the wider area. However, The Laurels arguably enjoys one of the best settings offering a very private but not isolated position with almost 360-degree views and the mature level gardens.

Nailsea is a five-minute drive away and Backwell is less than 10 minutes with good road connections available to other nearby centres including the City of Bristol just 9 miles distant. A main line railway station is also available in Backwell facilitating daily long distance commuting and the nearest junction of the M5 is less than 4 miles.

No onward chain delays - the seller can move to suit, subject to contract in the usual way.
