    About this property

    • Tucked well away from the road and set off a long private lane, this wonderful home offers all the benefits of country living yet conveniently placed for swift access to local amenities and the motorway network. The house has been comprehensively remodelled and offers particularly bright, well planned accommodation coupled with the ability to generate significant rental income from the adjacent annexe wing.
      The main house sits comfortably within its generous grounds with parking for a number of vehicles and two electric car charging points. The beautiful gardens are truly outstanding and have been designed and planted with a significant degree of horticultural knowledge. A spectacular array of flowering shrubs and ornamental trees lead to a small flight of steps that meanders its way up to an octagonal gazebo, a fine spot to take in the exceptional far reaching views. A gravelled pathway continues beyond the striking Yucca and Palm beds to the top of the garden with greenhouse/potting shed and a space dedicated for a large chicken coup providing a wonderful sense of rural living on the cusp of Bristol. The pathway sweeps beyond a large natural rockery into a small wooded glade which is a wonderful haven for wildlife. Planning permission has been obtained for the construction of an additional independent dwelling; certainly a superb option for those wishing to pursue a multi-generational purchase or to extract further value from this exciting home.
      In the main home, the central hallway leads past a substantial home office with the adjacent walk in linen cupboard providing the link through into the annexe wing. The drawing room is a wonderful size with a superb dual aspect and perfectly orientated to take in the afternoon sunshine and evening sunsets. A working fireplace with stone surround provides a focal point to the room with an inset wood burning stove. The room links beautifully with the lovely, open plan kitchen with vaulted, half glazed dining area which certainly draws both the light and vibrancy of the gardens into the house and provides a superb circulation space for guests and access to and from the large terrace.
      The kitchen has contemporary styled cream units with granite work surfaces, large central island with AEG induction hob and an integrated dishwasher and a bank of stainless steel ovens, microwave and coffee machine to one end. A Samsung American style fridge/freezer maybe available by separate negotiation. The doorway from the dedicated utility room steps out onto the small and sheltered area of garden to the rear.
      On the first floor there are three further bedrooms in addition to the study/bedroom four downstairs and the aspects from both the guest double bedroom and principal bedroom are idyllic. The principal bedroom is indeed a particularly noteworthy room and a true sense of luxury with walk in dressing room, extensive wardrobes and an en suite shower room. A small elevated walkway provides a level approach to the ornamental gardens beyond. The family bathroom at this level has been stylishly fitted with a modern free standing bath and walk in open shower. The owners were keen to futureproof their house as much as possible and as such built in many eco credentials to maximise the environmental impact and reduce unnecessary running costs. There are Photo Voltaic solar panels with battery storage, solar water heating panels and electric car charging points.
