A very special and beautifully remodelled home of great style and with magnificent views.
Approached via a pillared driveway with parking for cars in addition to the large carport on the opposite side of the house for two further vehicles. Originally dating to 1846 this delightful period home has been the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and remodelling to include a significant extension to the home in 2009. The home occupies a lovely position, on a small country lane and with delightful views over the fields to the front and the rolling open countryside to the rear. With such a lovely rural location, it is hard to believe that Bristol City Centre is only 6 miles away and the restaurant's pubs and boutiques of Clifton Village just 5.7 miles.
The home offers generous parking for up to six vehicles with a large driveway to the front and the far side of the property a large car port for two further vehicles and an electric car charger. The property has a most appealing front elevation with a central Portico entrance opening to a welcoming hallway with stripped floorboards that run through both adjacent reception rooms. Immediately to the left of the hallway is a family games room with stone-built fireplace and smart alcove cupboards to either side. The front window looks across the driveway to the village of Dundry perched high on the hillside with the beautiful 15th century church tower of St. Michaels clearly visible on the brow of the hill. The sitting room to the far side of the hallway is a very calm and relaxed room enjoying a dual aspect and with a decorative open chimney breast as a focal point.
Without doubt, the open plan kitchen/family room is exceptional. A beautiful limestone floor runs throughout the kitchen into the adjoining dining room and a smartly fitted cloak room with WC beyond. Central in the kitchen is a substantial island unit with a huge single piece of granite forming the work surface and a sociable breakfast bar area to one side. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of cream-coloured cabinets which incorporate a four-burner induction hob with twin burner gas hob to the side. Built in appliances include the combination/microwave oven and twin electric ovens, dishwasher and with space for an American style fridge/freezer (that may be available subject to separate negotiation). Adding character and warmth to the home is the gas fired AGA set into a faux chimney breast with further storage units to either side. The extension to this part of the house has transformed this space providing a superb dual aspect seating area with a contemporary woodburning stove and three sets of doors opening to the large area of raised decking and dining terrace. Two large Velux windows in conjunction with the fully glazed doors not only make the most of the panoramic views but bathe the room in a in a good deal of natural sunlight. A pair of doors with attractive stained-glass insets open to a good size separate dining room. From the kitchen, there is a further inner lobby leading out to the carport which allows parking and direct access into the home without exposure to the elements. Three easy steps lead down to the quarry tiled utility room with further access to the rear garden and most superb high vaulted office which is perfect for those that can enjoy hybrid working without having to compromise their living space. This room was a further addition by the owners and would be equally suitable as a further reception or bedroom for a dependent relative. This is a bright and very smartly appointed room with engineered oak flooring (including underfloor heating) and with a ladder to a small area of mezzanine loft storage.
On the first floor are four good size double bedrooms, one of which commands a terrific view over the paddocks and fields opposite, across the valley and taking in the Barrow reservoir and Wraxall Hill. The principal bedroom is as much a key selling feature as the amazing kitchen/family room on the ground floor. The high vaulted ceiling with open roof trusses not only provides the room with character but also a great scale and light and with doors opening on to a private roof terrace This room exudes calm and tranquillity and is a restful retreat from family activity in the rest of the home. There is a large walk-in wardrobe and a raised freestanding bath such as maybe seen in high end boutique hotels. A frosted glazed door opens to a lovely en suite bathroom with large walk in shower with body jets. The three other bedrooms boast equally beautiful view, 2 of them double aspect, and sharing a modern family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower.
