A four bedroom detached residence built in 1954, nestled away in a little known private road on an elevated position offering far reaching views. Ingleside occupies an impressive plot of around 0.66 of an acre in total including a hillside copse directly opposite the house. Without doubt the most impressive attribute is the beautiful rear garden that measures around 32 metres square providing such a pleasing outlook as well as a southerly orientation. This well-tended garden contains a rich variety of mature shrubs, bushes and tree specimens including four apple trees, a fig tree and the striking centrepiece of a most attractive blue cedar tree. There is also an ornamental pond and vegetable garden. A raised sun deck provides the perfect spot to catch the sun whilst overlooking the garden as well as taking in some impressive views towards the hills of Dundry and Barrow Gurney on the horizon.
The current owners have enjoyed some twenty years in residence and carried out numerous improvements during their tenure such as the construction of a double garage in 2002, installation of some raised decking overlooking the rear garden, installing a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and the reappointment of the bath and shower rooms. Comfortable and versatile living accommodation is arranged over two floors and, in our opinion will appeal to a number of different types of purchaser whether upsizing with family or downsizing without (the property offers great scope for further extension subject to any necessary planning consents). Other features to note include double glazed windows throughout (allowing plenty of natural light), oil fired central heating, a log burner to the cosy sitting room/snug and the fact that all of the bedrooms are of double proportion. The property is most conveniently situated only few minutes’ drive from the countless amenities offered in nearby Nailsea, and Portishead and of course Bristol.
The accommodation comprises entrance porch into entrance hallway, sitting room with an open fire, living room/snug (with log burner), dining room, kitchen breakfast room, utility room (with access to loft storage space above) and two bedrooms served by a bath/shower room to the ground floor. First floor with landing offering eaves storage space and two bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room). Outside: Beautiful gardens and grounds surmounting to 0.66 of an acre including the garden (0.44 of an acre (including the house and garage), roadway and hillside copse of 0.15 of an acre. Detached double garage with two built in under croft storage sheds.

One notable local attraction includes the National Trust’s Tyntesfield Estate, a Grade 1 Gothic revival mansion set in 540 acres of stunning gardens and grounds.

Nearby Nailsea has a wide selection of high street shops, banks, restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. Nailsea/Backwell station (within 2 1/2 miles) proves direct links to Bristol Temple Meads and London Paddington (circa 2 ¼ hours).The area is particularly well served for schooling in both the state and private sectors with most notably the village primary school of excellent repute and The Downs independent preparatory School, Clifton College and Clifton High Schools to name but a few are within approx. 7.5 miles travelling distance.

Turn right at these traffic lights onto the A369 towards Portishead. After about half a mile, at another set of lights, turn left into Beggar Bush Lane. Continue along this road past Redwood retirement development on your left and Bristol & Clifton Golf Club on your right for about two miles until you come to another set of traffic lights at a crossroad. You are now in Failand. Turn right at these traffic lights onto the B3128 heading towards Clevedon.
