1950s mid-century contemporary home - positioned on the Tickenham hillside enjoying far reaching and panoramic views across North Somerset towards the Mendip Hills.
Ironically named 'Random', this individual architect designed home sits in a beautiful, private and mature garden approaching two thirds of an acre. The house itself has been designed with an emphasis on large swathes of glazing, the house is particularly notable for its dramatic central living space, its qualities of light and the wonderful blurring of the lines between internal and external spaces. The house's layout was designed to suit a young and growing family, with four bedrooms, two arranged on either side of the central and expansive living room with dramatic wall of windows that connect the space to the garden. The property remains much as it was designed and is measured with approximately 1,296 sq ft of accommodation. There are plentiful mid-century modern features throughout, employing a classic palette of wood, cork and glass. However, these are in original condition and the house requires some updating.
Around two thirds of an acre of gardens surround the house, creating a wonderful visual relationship between the interior and exterior spaces. Large specimen trees and mature hedging form the boundary, creating excellent privacy and seclusion. Numerous terraces have been carefully positioned to provide inviting areas for eating and drinking outside in warmer months. Herbaceous beds and borders had been lovingly tended over many years and are chock full of flowering plants and perennials, adding bursts of colour and interest throughout the seasons. Additionally, there is a timber-framed lean-to workshop and double garage, which collectively add a further 486 sq ft to the overall footprint.
Tickenham is close to the M5 motorway, offering strong connections. For rail commuters, there are mainline stations at Nailsea & Backwell and Bristol Temple Meads. Bristol airport is just 20 minutes away by car and the city centre 9 miles to the East.
