A harbourside house in Stoke Bishop! Believed to date from the early 1700's the house was probably built as the dock managers house for the now defunct Sea Mills floating harbour on the site of the old Roman port of Abona. It now provides comfortable yet quirky accommodation of character in this tucked away spot with views down the River Avon towards the sea.
Full of history and positioned in the bottom corner of Stoke Bishop the house is tucked away on a private road (shared with two neighbours). It was purchased by an architect in 1970 and refurbished to provide modern accommodation interwoven with the original period house. Approached via the front garden a porch opens into a hall on one side of the house with staircase rising to the upper floors. A cloakroom and storage cupboard are also provided in this space. To the right hand side of the front door is a period styled snug room with natural stone fireplace (currently non-functioning). Positioned across the rear of the house using the footprint of the original outhouses and retaining some of the period character is a modern styled semi open plan living area with adjoining kitchen and utility room. We feel there is potential to extend over at least part of this area to provide additional bedroom/bathroom provision (subject to any consents) as the house in not listed. The first floor of the original house provides two double bedrooms with a bathroom in the newer section. The top floor provides two additional bedrooms set into the roof space with considerable character. The windows provide views over the River Avon. One of these rooms is currently open plan to the staircase but could easily be enclosed if desired.
To the side of the house is a single garage and upto three off street parking spaces. The house owns the drive in front of the house and adjoining earth bank which could provide additional car space if desired. The neighbours enjoy right of access over the drive/road so access cannot be blocked. The rear garden is enclosed and laid mainly to lawn with mature shrub borders. There is a lovely secluded section accessed via French doors from the living room behind the garage. Of particular note in the rear garden is a mature Walnut tree. Offered for sale with no onward chain.
