Stunning properties for sale in one of Bristol’s prettiest commuter towns
The first docks at Avonmouth were opened back in 1877. Since then, the famous Port of Bristol has grown in size and is now one of the most important centres in the UK for the transportation of chilled foods. And nestled along the coastline from the docks is the pretty town of Portishead, just 20 minutes from the centre of Bristol.
A few select properties in Portishead, including some stunning new homes for sale on the brand new Altus Taylor Wimpey development, offer fantastic views across the Severn Estuary. On a clear day you can see across the water to Wales and it’s possible to spend hours watching the majestic boats sail serenely in and out of the docks.
“Portishead is a beautiful part of the world, and offers stunning views across the estuary while remaining within close commuting distance of the centre of Bristol,” says Keith Osborne, editor of new homes portal whathouse.co.uk. “Taylor Wimpey’s Altus development is near to local amenities while retaining a ‘close-to-nature’ feel. The properties overlook the nature reserve and coastal path and there are some lovely local walks along the estuary and down to the lovely marina.”
The stunning ‘Sinai’ duplex apartment has beautiful views over the Severn Estuary. The lower floor features a modern fitted kitchen, a living/dining room with access to a balcony and a third room which you can use as a spare bedroom or office. Upstairs, you’ll find a master bedroom with a feature window, a second double bedroom and a well-appointed family bathroom. Allocated parking is included in the superb price of just £239,950.
Alternatively, you may want to consider the beautiful ‘Sugarloaf’ duplex apartment. Also featuring three bedrooms, a balcony and beautiful views, this property is just £227,995.
Osborne adds: “Portishead is one of the prettiest commuter towns for Bristol and offers easy access to both the city centre and the large Cribbs Causeway shopping centre. A brand new leisure centre has recently been completed in the town and the famous open air swimming pool celebrates its 50th birthday in 2012. These two new homes for sale from Taylor Wimpey offer excellent-sized accommodation in a convenient and attractive location. There’s really nothing to beat sitting on your balcony looking out over the River Severn and watching the boats head in and out of the port.”
