    About this property

    • Four acres is believed to date to the 1960's and is set within one on the region's most sought after areas, perched on Backwell Hill yet enjoying almost level grounds with the most wonderful backdrop of the wooded Wraxall hillside in the distant horizon.

      Approached via a long private driveway, culminating in a parking and turning area for a good number of cars, the detached single storey dwelling offers a myriad of options, either to modernise the existing home or, subject to planning, remodel if so desired. There are generous lawns to either side of the driveway, interspersed with mature and established ornamental trees and shrubs leading to a double garage with a room above. This could potentially be adapted to create a self-contained annexe and beyond the garage is a substantial cabin with full washing facilities which has been used as overflow guest accommodation, a summer house and party room. The outlook from the veranda, across the former tennis court (now overgrown) with the paddock beyond is truly delightful. The gardens continue to the rear of the garage with the boundary delineated by a low stone walling with a beautiful meadow beyond. A further area of enclosed ornamental garden is set to the rear of the property, safely enclosed for those with young children or pets and featuring mature flower and shrub borders with a rockery and a pond with a recirculating water feature. The garden conservatory offers a peaceful seating area and shelter from the elements when outdoor entertaining with family and friends.

      The property is approached via a pathway from the driveway, through a covered veranda and into the large and welcoming hallway with space for a desk and leading to three rooms, namely the kitchen, large sitting room and dining room. The sitting room is a superb and beautifully lit room by virtue of its dual aspect windows to the front and rear and with a stone built chimney breast housing a cast iron wood burning stove. The dining room is certainly much larger than average, again with fine duel aspect and a more modern brick built fireplace and alcove shelving. The kitchen is large enough for formal dining with space for a kitchen table and offers plenty of storage with built in Oak cabinets and appliances that include the stoves, halogen hobs and integrated Neff oven. A half glazed door leads to the aforementioned enclosed rear garden. All of the bedroom accommodation is located in one wing at the far end of the property with five bedrooms, three of which have en suite facilities with a separate family bathroom.

      A lane leads down beside the paddock to a stable block with four loose boxes and a very large six car garage. There is a gate from the lower end of the paddock that leads directly to the stables negating the need to use the access lane .
