    About this property

    • A delightful village home is believed to date to circa 1840 and is wonderful property for those seeking to be close to all village amenities and perfectly placed for country living with both Bath and Bristol within easy reach. The owners have very much enjoyed that they can take a footpath directly from the end of Mead Lane avoiding the road, to the local primary school, the village church and tennis club. Blagdon Lake can be reached in the same way, considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Chew Valley, all of which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
      Whilst the property retains character, such as the fine inglenook fireplace in the living room, it has the benefit of not being listed thus allowing for modern touches to be added such as the highly efficient solar panels making a significant contribution to the running costs of the home. The house benefits from two modern bathrooms, one of which is en suite to the ground floor bedroom, which could work well for a dependent relative or independent teenager. The good size entrance hall is currently used as a music room with an upright piano on one wall but could be equally well used as a study with a desk currently placed to enjoy a lovely outlook across the rear garden. The stylish kitchen has been comprehensively refitted to include a generous array of smart build in storage cabinets and appliances with plenty of space for dining with family and friends. A doorway from the rear of the kitchen leads past the downstairs cloakroom/utility to a good size garage. The vendors also park a vehicle on the lane to the front of the house. A level, lawned garden to the rear enjoys a good sense of privacy and is walled on all sides providing safe enclosure for those with young children or pets.
