    About this property

    • Approached via a double gated in and out carriage drive, this unique detached property was built circa 1922 and has been a well loved family home for many years. Without doubt, it is one of the most substantial and important homes on this highly regarded residential road and is set in wonderful, mature grounds which enjoy tremendous privacy and a fine sunny aspect. To the rear, a fine expanse of lawns sweep gently away from the property, culminating in a lower area of established orchard, backing onto delightful open countryside. From its elevated position, the views over the channel to the Welsh hills beyond are superb. The house appears to be well maintained but it is likely that any subsequent purchaser will wish to modernise to taste and put their own stamp on the property.

      First built in circa 1922, and completely refurbished by the current owners when they purchased in January 2000, the house offers beautifully light and elegantly proportioned accommodation over just two floors. An enclosed entrance porch with a pair of leaded glazed doors opens to the large inner hallway with beautiful Limestone floor that runs through much of the ground floor. Set to one side is the first of two sitting rooms with a pair of doors that may be opened wide to create one very large entertaining space if so desired. The large bay windows are a lovely period feature of the home with high cornice ceilings enhancing the homes overall feeling of generosity of space. Set into a wide decorative chimney breast is a contemporary style wood burning stove and in the main drawing room a cast iron grate with living flame fire is set onto the slate hearth with a carved timber surround.

      The drawing room links though to a good sized dining room with doors opening to the courtyard and driveway beyond and to the other side of the inner hallway is the well appointed kitchen with ample space for informal entertaining. The kitchen features beautiful granite work surfaces and solid wood built in storage cabinets and a wide bay window commands superb views over the rear garden and beyond. A separate utility is set to the rear.Adjacent to the kitchen is the heated indoor swimming pool which can be accessed from both the front and rear grounds.

      On the first floor there are five bedrooms with one currently being used as a home office. All of the rooms enjoy country aspects with some exceptional views reaching far across the rear gardens, the Bristol Channel and the distant Welsh Hills. The two principal bedrooms benefit from very smartly finished ensuites with a further stylish family bathroom with a Victorian style free standing bath and separate shower.

      The property offers ample parking for numerous cars, with a single garage set at the head of the drive with a further double garage to the side of the house. The larger of the garages may offer scope to remodel as a home office, gym or annexe subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
