This elegant period property occupies a position on Silver Street, a sought-after address in Nailsea, close to the town centre. The distinctive residence, named Blagdon House, was purpose-built in 1904 by Arthur Samuel James Humphries, a gentleman of the parish and a master baker, who used the room at the front of the house for his bakery and confectionary shop.

North Somerset Times: Restored original features enrich the reception rooms.

Now the property is a well-appointed residential dwelling with many beautifully restored original features that enrich the reception rooms.

Inside, the grand reception hall sets the tone for the entire house and features wood panelling, a lofty 9-foot ceiling and solid oak flooring. The drawing room offers a sense of grandeur with its full-height bay window, an original ceiling cornice and a slate chimney piece with a gas fire inset. The dining room showcases a carved chimney piece and moulded picture rail and dado rails, while the recently updated kitchen has a traditional look with bespoke cabinets, a full-size range cooker and a chimney hood.

North Somerset Times: A bespoke, oak-framed family room is an extension of the original house

A bespoke, oak-framed family room is an extension of the original living quarters and was built to give the feel of a conservatory. This light and airy space has eco-oak framing, a high vault-style mono-pitch roof and French doors that open to a flagstone courtyard.

On the first floor, there are three generous double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from a large ensuite bathroom.

Outside, enclosed south and west-facing rear gardens feature two distinct patio areas, an Astro lawn, raised flower beds filled with a variety of plants and shrubs, and a tranquil water feature.

A gated driveway at the side of the property provides parking space for several vehicles and leads to a coach house-style garage with an attic room above.
