Detached four-bedroom property with swimming pool

We are elated to offer a truly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached residence, located on an enviable elevated plot on Portishead’s prestigious ‘Nore Road’. The views across the Bristol Channel from various vantage points surrounding the property are spectacular. Rarely do such properties become available. Its current owners have vastly improved the property in recent times. ‘327’ is now an attractive family home boasting in excess of 3,000 sq ft of generous living accommodation. 

Room to live

First floor landing area

This fine property is sure to appeal to a wide range of potential purchasers. The light and airy accommodation is spread over three floors. The ground floor is given over to a large, welcoming, hallway, a cosy sitting room overlooking the gardens at the front of the house, and a roomy utility room. On the first floor, where the majority of the living space is situated, a striking landing area leads to a 33ft living room. An estuary-facing balcony is accessible through wide patio doors—the ideal spot for entertaining guests while watching the sun set. At the other end of this living space wall-wide bi-fold doors open onto the rear patio and garden.

Open-plan kitchen

Opposite the living room is a modern, open-plan, kitchen/diner fitted with a range of high-white units and built-in double-oven and hob. Its generous size offers plenty of space for preparing family meals and dinner parties. The dining area is particularly spectacular with its open ceiling and exposed beams giving it an open, relaxed atmosphere. Again, patio doors open onto the estuary-facing balcony, making it another perfect room for entertaining.

Four double bedrooms

The main bedroom suite is also on this floor. With its larger-than-average en suite and fitted wardrobes this room offers everything one could need—down to the double doors leading onto the rear patio. There are a further three sizeable double bedrooms on the second floor. The smallest of these would offer a generous office space for those who work from home. Finally on this floor, there is a recently refurbished modern family bathroom.

Incredible outside space—with swimming pool

A private sweeping driveway leads up to the property. In addition to a double garage with integral workshop, there is parking for at least four vehicles. Substantial gardens surround the property. At the front, a heated swimming pool is screened by tall hedging. On the other side of the drive well-tended gardens tumble down the gentle slope. To the rear, a tiered garden climbs the hillside behind the residence. Terraced areas offer safe, flat play areas. And in the evening, while the children are tucked in their beds, tired parents can sit and enjoy the panoramic views over rooftops to the Bristol Channel and Welsh Coastline.

With exclusive quality properties in this price bracket in truly short supply and high demand, we anticipate a strong interest. Please be quick to arrange your internal inspection to avoid further disappointment. 


You’ll find plenty to keep you occupied in Portishead. Not only are there the sweeping coastal views enjoyed from the property, but there is a public art trail and a variety of leisure facilities. The Victorian high street is home to a range of independent local shops. There is also a great choice of bars and restaurants in both the High Street and around the Marina. A couple of retail parks are home to some big-name stores.

The beach is not recommended for bathing because of the high tidal range and dangerously strong currents. However, the lido, built in 1962 and lovingly restored by the Portishead Pool Community Trust, is 33 metres long and heated using renewable energy. There is also a pool for toddlers and a café on site.

The town has many parks and gardens, too numerous to be mentioned, but a full list can be found here.

Portishead has not one, but two lighthouses. One at Battery Point at the North end of the town, the other, Black Nore Lighthouse, is a nine-minute walk from the property.

The nearest schools to the property are: High Down Infant School; High Down Junior School; and Gordano School. All are within 2 km.

Portishead is on a First Bus route to and from the centre of Bristol. There are plans to re-open the Portishead rail line to passenger train services and to enhance local passenger train services on the Severn Beach and Bath to Bristol lines. AT the time of writing, the project is still awaiting a decision on the Development Consent Order (DCO) by the Department for Transport (DfT).
