A substantial country residence with indoor swimming pool, tennis court and paddock.
This most impressive country dwelling is located almost at the foot of Brent Knoll, an exceptionally convenient location for swift access to the motorway network, the railway station at Highbridge or Bristol Airport. The home offers scope for a degree of refurbishment and modernisation to taste and represents a fine opportunity for those seeking to put their own stamp on a sizeable family home with the ability to generate independent income from annexed accommodation if so desired. Equestrian buyers will appreciate the balance of circa 5 acres of land with significant stabling but equally these outbuildings would lend themselves to full remodelling to create a further detached dwelling, leisure suite or office accommodation if appropriate.
A large and welcoming reception hall of 26 ft leads directly through to the kitchen/breakfast room with adjacent utility, pantry and wine cellar. The home offers a good deal of flexibility but as currently arranged offers a particularly large drawing room, a beautifully proportioned dining room and separate study. Stained glass double doors from the drawing room lead through to the superb indoor pool room designed with entertaining in mind with sliding doors into the adjoining conservatory with access to the garden. There are full changing and showering facilities. There are currently seven bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is currently used as a dressing room for the master suite and the far wing makes a good-sized, self-contained annexe flat. The five car garage building abuts the pool house, with a useful workshop and potting shed to one side and also housing the plant room with filtration and heating system for the swimming pool. The property is accessed via a long tree lined driveway, affording privacy and seclusion from the road and leads to ample parking and turning areas. In the spring and summer months, the gardens are truly delightful with the property sitting almost centrally within its grounds with a full sized tennis court and further paddock land extending to the rear with lovely vistas of the hillsides and countryside beyond.
The Cottage adjoins the three stables and hayloft and offers a wonderful opportunity to increase the residential accommodation subject to planning approval. There is a holding paddock through which there is access to both individual grazing fields.
