An appealing family house offering flexible living space in extensive grounds with far-reaching south-westerly views
Southmead is a good example of mid-late 20th Century modern architecture. Constructed in the 1970s it shows a clear departure from traditional architectural rules with the house designed with functionality in mind and around the landscape and wonderful views.
The main living areas are located on the first floor, with the majority of bedrooms on the lower level. The accommodation is linked seamlessly with the outdoor living space set within a walled garden with a swimming pool and dining areas. Overall it is a hugely appealing family property offering flexibility and further potential.
The property is accessed via a tarmac drive from the lane where there is a parking and turning area beside the garaging.
The front door opens into a spacious hall at first floor level with stairs down to the ground floor. On the right hand side of the hall is a reception room, conservatory, bedroom and shower room, providing an independent flat or guest suite.
On the opposite side is a recently refurbished kitchen with a range cooker, a central island and marble work surfaces and a dining area. Beyond is a sitting room with a fireplace and balcony off from which there are magnificent rural views.
On the opposite side of the kitchen is a utility room and laundry room and access to the garage, with electric doors, and boiler room. A porch area links to the garden room.
On the ground floor are a series of rooms accessed from a central hallway. They include a large study/games room from which there is access to the garden, five bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en suite).
The setting and grounds are key elements of the property and offer wonderful leisure opportunities.
The swimming pool sits within a walled garden and is framed by terracing providing sheltered and private dining and sun-bathing areas. Beyond are lawns interspersed with mature shrubs and trees and flanked to the east by mature woodland, a part of which is owned by the property.

Southmead is a terrific place and the location is superb. With 1970s architecture and design now incredibly stylish again we expect it to generate a good deal of interest.Charlie Kannreuther
