Property Description

15 Castle Hill Avenue is a very spacious, much improved and considerably extended detached family home situated in a central and convenient location yet tucked away, sitting on a private no through road. The property enjoys superb views across the town towards the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh coast and sits in large landscaped gardens with excellent space for outdoor entertaining or al fresco dining. There is also plenty of off road parking and a double garage.

The current owners have been resident at the property for over 20 years and have made considerable improvements during that time including various extensions adding additional living accommodation. The house is ideal for modern day family living with good sized reception rooms including a 17ft x 14ft lounge, 18ft x 11ft dining room, conservatory and a 20ft x 12ft L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room. The bedrooms are all also generously proportioned with one being located on the ground floor, adjacent to a shower room and cloakroom/wc making it ideal for an elderly or dependent relative.

Located central to the town, the property is just a short distance from the high street, sea front and close to all three of the towns schools for all ages.

The property benefits from gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazing. In addition, there are solar photo voltaic panels which supplements the electricity supply for on demand use and provides the highest rate of feed in tariff to the National Grid which equates to an annual return of approximately £2,500 (tax free) which increases annually with RPI. There are approximately 12 years left for the new owner to benefit from. The power generated from the panels is also diverted to the electric immersion to heat the hot water. A 210 litre water tank has been fitted to maximise storage of energy produced by solar panels which helps to vastly reduce the outgoings further.

An entrance lobby opens in to the entrance hallway which has attractive wooden flooring, doors to the majority of the ground floor rooms leading off and the stairs to the first floor. The lounge/snug is a cosy yet spacious 18ft room which has a wood burner set on a slate hearth. The room opens into the delightful uPVC double glazed conservatory which enjoys the views across the gardens, town and Bristol Channel. Double doors lead out on to a large decked terrace within the garden which is ideal for outdoor entertaining, barbeques or 'al fresco' dining.

Across the hallway is the sitting/living room which is the heart of the home and is a very spacious 29ft x 14ft bright and airy room which enjoys views over the gardens and town towards the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh Coast. Again there is the attractive wood flooring. The kitchen opens from here and has a range of fitted base and wall units with granite work surfaces over and a range of integrated appliances that includes a 5 ring gas hob with extractor canopy over, a double oven and a fridge. The kitchen also benefits from the views towards the sea. From the rear of the kitchen a door opens in to the utility room which is an ideal 'practical' area with plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for additional appliances etc. There are doors to either side leading to the gardens.

The ground floor bedroom is a spacious double room and there is a ground floor shower room immediately adjacent and an additional cloakroom/wc. This arrangement is considered ideal should there be a dependent or elderly relative.

Moving to the first floor, the landing has doors to all remaining rooms leading off, an airing cupboard and hatch to the loft space. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Bedroom 1 is a large double room measuring 21ft x 11ft and enjoys excellent sea and coastal views. There is a built in wardrobe/store and an en suite shower room which comprises a walk in shower cubicle and hand basin. There are two further double bedrooms with bedroom 2 again enjoying sea views but also having built in wardrobes as well as access to a large eaves room which has a 'Velux' style window. This room could be used for a variety of purposes and would be great as a play room, occasional bedroom or as a 'suite' for teenaged children. The family bathroom comprises a corner bath, low level wc and hand basin.

Outside, Castle Hill Avenue is a private road which has been recently tarmaced. Maintenance of the road falls to the residents who live along it. Each resident seems to claim the area immediately outside their property. Steps lead down from the road via a path to the rear garden. At the front of the house there is an upper tier of garden which comprises a paved sitting area with flower beds, shrubs and bushes. There is a 'yard area' immediately in front of the house which can be accessed via the utility room. A path at the left hand side leads on to a large wooden decked sitting area with wooden balustrade which sits immediately adjacent to the conservatory and is an ideal area for barbeques, outdoor dining and sun bathing. The deck has flower bed borders well stocked with heathers and shrubs. At the right hand side there is a smaller, screened sitting area with a pathway giving access back around to the front of the house.

There is a good-sized gabled roof potting shed and a paved pathway leads down through the garden alongside further flowerbeds. There is an additional large 13ft x 10ft custom-built insulated workshop which has light and power and with little outlay, could easily be converted into a home office, perfect for those who live and work from home. There is a private gravelled sitting area with trellis around and a pathway leads across to a circular patio with an adjacent garden pond all surrounded by well stocked flower beds and a palm tree.

At the bottom of the garden is a large parking area with space for 3-4 cars accessed from Montpelier Lane. Alongside the parking area is a gabled roofed double garage with an open front store behind.

Furthermore, there is potential to build 1 or 2 properties in the lower part of the garden, subject to appropriate approvals. Pre-planning for 2 properties has already been sought and advice given accordingly. Further details are available upon request.

At the bottom of the garden is a large parking area with space for 3-4 cars accessed from Montpelier Lane. Alongside the parking area is a gabled roofed double garage with an open front store behind.

The property would make an ideal home for a growing family and we fully advise an early internal inspection to appreciate the accommodation and facilities on offer.
