This impressive, four-bedroom Edwardian residence occupies a prime position on Bucklands Grove, a private, no-through lane in Nailsea, close to the town centre, while the neighbouring village of Backwell is barely more than a five-minute walk away.

The property was built in 1908 by William Shepstone a master builder who is renowned locally for having developed many of the high-quality houses of the period in the Bucklands Batch area of Nailsea, the most prestigious location in the town. This particular house was the Shepstone family home and as might be expected, is further enriched with numerous individual architectural details.

North Somerset Times: The kitchen/breakfast room has been extensively remodelled

While retaining great character, the house has been thoughtfully and tastefully updated in recent years, so today it provides a very comfortable accommodation.

Beyond the grand hallway, there are three elegant reception rooms. The living room features a broad bay window and a fireplace with a contemporary wood-burning stove, while the equally bright sitting room is an ideal space for entertaining. The well-proportioned dining room is arranged to take advantage of the lovely views of the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has been extensively remodelled and enlarged and has a timeless look with a range of classic white units, contrasting work surfaces and a built-in utility cupboard.

North Somerset Times: Picturesque gardens wrap around three sides of the house

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms and one single, and a well-appointed family bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath. The principal bedroom benefits from a wide bay window and an ensuite shower room.

Outside, picturesque gardens wrap around three sides of the house with the front garden having a lawn, raised beds and well-stocked borders that flow to the side of the property.

The rear garden has a broad sweep of lawn framed by a variety of mature shrubs and trees, including three apple trees as well as a plum and pear tree. A summer house sits to one side and a greenhouse in the opposite corner.

At the front, a wide driveway provides ample space for parking and there is a detached double garage.
