This architect-commissioned family home stands on a plot of almost half an acre, in a quiet and semi-rural setting, with easy access to the main amenities in Nailsea.

The unique property has several individual qualities that are enhanced by its peaceful private setting framed by a superb garden with views beyond the adjoining open countryside to the west and south west.
