This spacious Scandinavian-style family house occupies a private position at the head of an attractive cul-de-sac, neighboured by homes of distinction, in one of Nailsea's most prestigious postcodes.

The Scandinavian-style properties in Nailsea were created by a private developer who had the vision to import Norwegian components and seasoned timber which, coupled with unusually high insulation standards, resulted in easy-to-run but significant houses of a timeless design. Virtually every property in the development stands in a large garden and the build density is remarkably low ensuring a real feeling of space.

North Somerset Times: The sizeable kitchen is modern and stylish

Inside, the six-bedroom, detached dwelling is superbly appointed with well-designed accommodation and a good use of wooden flooring and fittings that create a simple, yet cosy living environment. Beyond the generous reception hall, there are four receptions including a Nordic-style conservatory.

The living room is well-proportioned and has a fireplace with a slate hearth and an inset living flame gas fire, while the study or family room is a light-filled space with a double aspect and double doors that open to a wide terrace. The separate dining room has a trio of low-sill windows overlooking the garden.

The large kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary shaker-style units, granite worksurfaces and several integrated appliances. From the kitchen, there is a superb conservatory/breakfast room which is a very social space and forms the heart of the house.

On the first floor, a generous landing leads to four double and two single bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with folding laminate glass shower screens and a thermostatically controlled shower above a whirlpool bath. The principal bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, while a further double bedroom has built-in wardrobes and a balcony overlooking the rear garden. The two single bedrooms could be used as separate home offices or incorporated into one large fifth bedroom.

Outside, the extensive rear garden has been effectively designed for low maintenance and aesthetic appeal. Wide paved patio areas sit on either side of the house and lead to an expanse of lawn bordered by a range of mature shrubs and trees.

At the front, there is a wide and level driveway providing ample parking space and leading to a large double garage. The driveway is flanked by gravel beds and established hedges that extend to a forecourt.
