A deceptively spacious 4/5 bedroom semi-detached house with an extensive rear garden, in a peaceful residential location in a highly regarded North Somerset village with good amenities and convenient for access to Bristol and beyond
28 Hilldale Road has been a much-loved family home for the past 33 years, during which it has been extended and enhanced to provide well balanced, flexible accommodation. There is a good balance of living/bedroom space and the rear garden is a good size, ideal for family living. Situated along a no-through residential road, the property has driveway parking for 2 vehicles, and a front garden mainly laid to lawn bordered by hedges.
Upon entry into the reception lobby, there is an immediate sense of space, with plenty of room for coats and boots. The attractive parquet floor continues to the sitting/dining areas (although is currently covered by carpet). The sitting room is a good size, with a feature "coal" effect gas fireplace to one wall, and views over the front. A shallow step leads up to the dining area, giving a sense of definition to the space, which accommodates a large dining table, ideal for family dining and entertaining.
Light floods in through the wide dining room window, with views up towards Backwell Hill beyond the property, and a French door provides access onto the dining terrace and garden beyond.
The kitchen/breakfast room off the dining room is also a very good size, accommodating a family breakfast table and a comprehensive range of wooden wall and base units. There is space for a dishwasher, a large gas range cooker and a larder fridge, and in the utility room beyond there is space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and a large fridge/freezer along with storage for coats and boots. A glazed door opens onto the garden, and to the other end there is a cloakroom, beyond which is another reception room currently used as a home office, but could be a snug or a playroom if required.
Upstairs 3 bedrooms overlook the front and 2 the rear garden, of which the principal suite includes an en-suite shower room. Along with a useful airing cupboard, there is a contemporary family bathroom with a screened shower over the bath.
Outside – the rear garden is a highlight of the property, and has been designed to enjoy the progression of the sun throughout the day, with 2 separate dining areas. Mainly laid to lawn, bordered by mature hedges with some trees and shrubs, and a large shed, the garden is a good size and is already ideal for family use, while also providing further scope for the keen gardener. A wooden gate to one side provides useful access to the front of the property, where there is additional space that could provide storage or perhaps accommodate another shed if required. There is driveway parking for 2 cars at the front, along with a front garden, mainly laid to lawn bordered by mature hedges.
Location – Backwell village offers an excellent range of facilities which include a sports centre and a recreation ground, primary schooling and a highly regarded secondary school. Local shops include general stores, takeaways, pharmacy, doctor's surgery and a post office, with more comprehensive facilities in the nearby town of Nailsea. Backwell and Nailsea station is within 1.2 miles for mainline services to Bristol, the west country and beyond and there are also regular bus services to Bristol (approx. 9 miles), Weston-super-Mare (approx. 12 miles) and Nailsea. Bristol Airport is within 5.5 miles and access to the M5 some 6.5 miles distant. Nearby Backwell Lake is a wonderful nature reserve, and there are superb walks nearby along public footpaths, and further afield in the Mendips, or along the Bristol Channel.
