A substantial family home in a select non-estate location
Originally built in 1958, this large detached residence is tucked away off the hill in one of Almondsbury's most sought after locations off a private lane amongst other impressive prestigious properties. The shared driveway for just two properties leads to the long paved drive that belongs exclusively to the home, providing parking for many vehicles in addition to the double garage at the front of the home.
Since being built, the house has been significantly extended most notably with the addition of a wonderful 24ft family room to the rear, commanding lovely views across the mature garden. The glazed entrance porch leads to an inner lobby with a large utility to the side also housing the Stelrad gas central heating boiler. There is plenty of space for outdoor footwear, clothing and usual family paraphernalia. The main hallway has windows overlooking the front driveway with further built-in storage cupboards and a downstairs WC. The principal reception room is at the far end of the hallway being a particularly light, triple aspect room with double glazed doors to the large rear terrace and gardens. A deep recess is the perfect place for housing a large screen television and a contemporary gas fireplace provides a focal point on the adjacent wall. A more intimate snug/4th bedroom provides useful ground floor office space if preferred, again with doors opening to the rear garden. Originally two rooms, the L shaped dining room has a sperate and cosy snug area, a stone fireplace and a wood burning cast iron stove. This room opens into the amazing glazed family room with a high pitched ceiling and commanding a wonderful outlook across the mature and colourful garden. The kitchen is fitted with the extensive range of built-in storage cabinets and includes a five burner Tecnik stainless steel range cooker and integrated refrigeration appliances and dishwasher. Sliding patio doors open to the side terrace.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms. The main bedroom is of a particularly good size with a lovely modern en suite bathroom, including a contemporary egg' bath and a large Porcelanosa shower. All the bedrooms are orientated to enjoy garden views and the neatly appointed family bathroom is fully tiled with wall hung WC, vanity unit and shower bath.
With access to either side of the property, the generous rear garden steps down from a large entertaining terrace with raised flower borders to a large gently sloping expanse of lawn. Deeply planted shrub borders both intersperse and frame the garden which enjoys a leafy backdrop from the surrounding mature trees. A wonderful weeping Willow is set at the far end of the garden providing generous dappled shade from the summer sun. A truly delightful garden, the perfect size for a large family property and providing a safely enclosed play area for young children and pets.

I love the wonderful convenience of this home, coupled with the tucked away almost hidden location.David WildProperty agent
