    About this property

    • Designed and constructed for the current owners, Channel View Cottage is a very special home indeed. Tucked away at the head of a private lane, the owners knew that they had found an absolute gem of an opportunity and swiftly set about creating a beautiful light filled home fully orientated to take advantage of such a fine elevated location and ensuing that all principal rooms capture the panoramic views that stretch out far beyond the local countryside towards the North Somerset coast.

      Immediately upon arrival, there is an exciting sense of what lies beyond the high gantry walkway that overlooks the architectural and sculpted garden that lies below. Entering the top floor of this three storey house makes perfect sense as one is immediately drawn to the skyline through the expanse of glass visible through the welcoming hallway in the adjacent drawing room. It is quite some achievement to have created a space that is a joy to inhabit all year round, whether relaxing beside the beautiful wood burning stove in the winter months or taking in the views on a summer's day on the generous balcony, accessed through floor to ceiling doors. Those that work from home will delight in the flexibility and options that this house offers. Two further reception rooms on this floor are ideal for this purpose or equally suitable as a fourth bedroom for an independent teenager seeking space and privacy away from the principal bedroom area on the first floor. Both of the first floor bedrooms are of an exceptional size sharing the well-appointed family bathroom. The ground floor opens up into an impressive open plan footprint designed as a hub for informal socialising with guests able to drift between light filled, uncluttered areas to two tiers of external raised terraces which feel more akin to New England or Tuscany. It is easy to forget that the bustling city of Bristol is just a short drive way – life must feel like a permanent holiday in such a privileged and unique location. There is a most useful large under croft storage area which is ideal for hiding away garden furniture, tools and such paraphernalia and this also houses the central heating boiler making this perfect for seasoning wood for the log burner upstairs.

      Whilst the home enjoys a sense of being away from it all being at the head of this long driveway with its lovely wooded backdrop, it is completely secluded but many will appreciate the comfort and security of two other neighbouring homes.

      The exterior of the homes has been recently redecorated in a subtle neutral tone and the presentation of the whole is such that the home would be the perfect choice for those seeking to move into their new property with minimal need for changes or the fuss and expense of additional works.

    It is always special to find a house that is perfectly designed to make the very most of its location and surrounds. This is a modernist house in every one but importantly it is a fun home that puts a smile on every visitors face.
