Back in 2002, just after the Port Marine development began Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Portishead opened their office as Heritage Estate Agents in the centre of Portishead’s busy High Street. Having been trading from their 1st office in Nailsea since the start of the millennium, the business was going from strength to strength. They recognised a gap in the market for a forward thinking, proactive and creative estate agency and within a short space of time they had become market leaders in the town.
Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Portishead pride themselves on their local knowledge, with many of the staff having grown up in the area and all of them living locally, which means they know everything there is to know about the town. Each of the team have either completed or in the process of completing a National Vocational Qualification in the sale of residential property and each year are provided with the most up to date training through the Hunters Training Academy to ensure they are at the very top of their game.
Hunters Portishead offer a full range of professional services from residential sales and letting to land and new homes, Conveyancing and financial services. With property values in Portishead having risen by 160% since the millennium and with the total value of Portishead’s property now at £3.76bn. We now offer an exclusive brand to cater for the high end value homes.
In the 11 years since the autumn of 2005, the total value of Portishead property had increased by 49% or £1.24 billion to a total of £3.76 billion! The average value of a detached property in the town sat at £447,889.
One of the key factors in these staggering statistics is how popular the town has become. For many, the idea of living within a pretty coastal town with a traditional High Street, Vibrant marina and outstanding schools, yet remaining within easy commuter reach of the motorway network and Bristol is just a fantasy. That is of course until they discover Portishead!

Portishead’s history dates back many years originally a fishing port the town expanded rapidly in the 19th century as a coastal escape for the people of Bristol. The lake grounds were constructed in 1910 and has ever since remained the Jewell in Portishead’s crown, a popular destination for tourists and locals to enjoy. A power station and chemical works were also added in the 20th century; however the docks today have been transformed into a vibrant Marina and residential development with a number of bars, restaurants and cafés.
Following the major development of the dockland area, Portishead is now the second largest town in North Somerset. Portishead’s population currently stands at more than 25,000 and more people are expected to settle in the town over the next few years with further development planned.
The town is a wonderful place to live and work with so many local volunteers ensuring everything is just so. The efforts of the team at Portishead in Bloom paid off again in 2017 when they were awarded the GOLD award and recognised as Champion of Champions.
The community spirit in Portishead is second to none, there is always something happening from festivals to markets, coffee mornings to charity events there really is something for everyone.
There are simply too many annual highlights to list each one, however a few of my favourites are; The Raft Race, Flower Shows, School Carnival, Victorian Evening, Soap Box Race and of course the Christmas Lights!
We see a diverse range of purchasers in Portishead and their does seem to be something here that will tick the boxes for almost every buyer. For the retired home searchers the piece and quiet of Redcliff Bay, combined with the wonderful views across the Severn Estuary are sure to appeal. Whilst for the busy professionals a Marina apartment with an array of bars, restaurants and cafés on your door step might be more up your street. For the family market there are multiple areas to be considered for those searching for a modern home, the Village Quarter offers all of the conveniences that are synonymous with modern living.
Yet the town also offers plenty of period homes in and around the High Street and Lake Ground areas. For investment purchasers again; there is a wide and diverse selection of property to choose from, from one bedroom apartments to four bedroom detached homes. There has been a constant strong rental demand across all price ranges so you will never be left with any empty property for long.
Portishead’s location is one of the key factors that make it such a great place to live, situated on the M5 the motorway network providing easy access to the South West and beyond. The city of Bristol is only 8 miles away with buses running in and out of the city every 30 minutes. The future will likely involve a railway station at Portishead providing another transport link to the City.
Across the town are a number of highly regarded primary and junior schools, with Gordano comprehensive school being another of the key attractions for families moving to the area.
