Astounding lake views from a prime Chew Valley location.
Occupying a simply stunning location with majestic views over mature open countryside and Blagdon Water, this individual home believed to date to the 1890 is the perfect blank canvas for a buyer seeking to put their own stamp on a property and to make the most of the enviable setting. Subject to planning, there is space to the rear of the home to extend the accommodation, whilst still leaving plenty of gardens for family and friends to enjoy. The property sits adjacent to a quiet lane in a rural village location and the gardens border delightful rolling meadows on two sides. A private driveway provides parking for a number of cars leading to a triple garage with electric up and over door and offering yet further conversion potential, perhaps as an annexe, gym or home office suite. The front entrance door is set to the side of the property opening to a hallway with under stairs storage area and access to the large sitting room with a fine dual aspect and double doors opening directly to the rear garden. This room also links through to a back passage to the rear terrace. A working fireplace with inset hearth sits centrally in the room and the former opening to the kitchen has been closed off to provide a timber lined display alcove with book shelving and storage draws. To the far side of the hallway is a second reception room, again with a wide bay window with views of the lake. It is likely that a new owner will relocate the kitchen, particularly if the house is to be extended but this is currently perfectly functional with an extensive range of lined oak wall and base units, integrated dishwasher, microwave and Miele twin oven and fridge. Double doors also lead from the rear dining room to the patio area, through the adjacent laundry with a downstairs cloakroom and access to the driveway.
There are four double bedrooms on the first floor, three of which command exceptional views across the lake. An airing cupboard houses a modern combi gas boiler which provides the hot water and central heating and there is a further built in cupboard at the far end of the landing. The family bathroom features a bath, separate large walk in shower cubical and set beneath the basin is access to a large eaves storage area.
The gardens that surround the property on two sides are beautifully maintained and were clearly loved by the owners, having been extensively stocked with a colourful array of flowering shrubs, perennials and herbaceous plants. The stone built terrace is of an excellent size for barbeques and summer drinks and two steps lead down to a gently sloping lawn with open panoramic views stretching well beyond the lake to distant hillsides. A small timber shed provides storage for garden tools, set within a delightful shaded, walled area surrounded by a mature rockery with two ornamental maple trees.
This property is available with immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

Few opportunities now exist within the wonderful Chew Valley to improve and enhance homes - even rarer to find one with views of the lakes.David Wild
