21 Dec Old and New Combined at Waters’ Edge: Stunning Portishead House For Sale
The Portishead office of Westcoast Properties is thrilled to offer for sale this truly individual, substantially extended Victorian cottage on the waters’ edge in Portishead, an enviable spot less than five miles to the M5 and 12 miles to the City of Bristol.
With over 2,300 square feet of space, this magnificent home has a glass atrium entrance, stunning kitchen with 31ft sun terrace, utility room, characterful lounge, principal bedroom suite with its own lounge as well as dressing room and en-suite, three further double bedrooms and a family shower room, all set in beautiful cottage style gardens directly overlooking the water.
The current owners are extremely proud of their home. About it, they write…
“Once in a while, old and new can come together in such perfection that one can only smile and feel that all is well. And that is what it feels like walking into this cottage, or rather what once was a little cottage. This house is truly a one of a kind. Around 1865 a sturdy little cottage was built on a rock by the sea, high enough and strong enough to withstand the incoming storms for centuries to come.
“Right here, where the Estuary becomes the Bristol Channel, this proud little cottage overlooks five miles of ever-changing waters towards the hills and mountains of the Welsh lands. When the tide is high, the waves roll in and the sound of the water gently lulls one into sleep when night has fallen.
A sturdy little, romantic cottage … until seven years ago when the current owners arrived and managed to triple that little cottage into a unique property and yet, the charm and magic of that little cottage was never lost, instead it was only added to and old and new blended seamlessly together. With the original beams and stone walls creating a warmth and sophistication at the same time, this little cottage has now become a wonderful family home.
“Each bedroom has been created to feature beautiful views whilst the modern bathrooms have been exquisitely designed to a high standard. The common spaces flow together to provide intimate corners for reading as well as spaces for larger gatherings and a large bi-folding window in the kitchen provides the perfect transition from indoors to the outdoor balcony during the summer months. From Sunrise to Sunset the view is constantly changing. There are many coastal birds to see such as curlews, oystercatchers & plovers and if you’re lucky you might even see a deer walking past in the early morning or spot a pod of
Porpoises out in the water.
“The home is perfectly located for easy access to coastal walks, wild swimming or simply just being in nature, yet it’s also close to amenities such as supermarkets, schools, cafes and restaurants. It benefits from under floor heating, a whole house water filtration system, two wood burners, a walk-in closet in the master suite and a magical garden.
“Today, this little mansion is for sale and the once upon a time sturdy little cottage awaits new owners. Never before has a house like this, with so much charm, built with so much love, so close to the water and yet so safe, cosy and perfect, come to the
market in these regions. A must to view and a view to kill for.”
Alex Tuckwell, assistant branch manager at Westcoast in Portishead, added: “Nore Park Cottage is a truly magical property with a direct seascape like no other. We would urge any interested parties to arrange a viewing appointment as soon as possible.”
