Property description

Forever Family Home of distinction.

Wetlands Cottage is a unique 4/5 bedroom period family home packed full of charm and character tucked away in a private and tranquil setting, yet minutes from local schools and local amenities.

Some parts of this special property date back over 200 years and now form a delightful cottage style residence of over 2200 square ft over two floors only. On the market for the first time in 22 years, the current owners have improved and modernised the property in keeping with the original features and design to create a cosy yet spacious home full of natural light and warmth.

Being outside in the mature grounds of 1/3rd of an acre, and standing close to the heated pool in the sunshine it is hard to imagine you are in England as the immediate impression is of a Mediterranean Riviera setting.

Flexible accommodation includes a separate annexe which could be utilised as either a rental income (currently generating £700 pcm) or self contained apartment for older relatives or teenagers.

Wetlands Cottage is located only minutes from Gordano school as well as St Josephs Primary School and close to Portishead Town centre.

Properties of this nature in this position are rarely available to the open market for long and early viewing is advised.
