A wonderful spacious and beautifully presented home with an exceptionally large garden.
This substantial family home is perfectly placed for swift access to both Bath and Bristol and occupies an exceptionally generous mature plot. From its elevated position, the property commands wonderful views to the west over rooftops towards the fields and hillsides beyond. The home is presented in excellent order throughout and has been decorated with a stylish pallet of colours that enhance the homes great feeling of space and natural light. The property is approached via a large and welcoming hallway with smart and durable Amtico style flooring and two reception rooms on either side of the hall. On the south side of the property is a beautiful sitting room with a wide bay window overlooking the front driveway and gardens. A lovely focal point is the Contura woodburning stove with slate hearth and stone surround. At the far end of the hallway is a second reception room, again with a wide bay window with built in seating area below providing storage for family games and toys. Making good use of the under stair area is a small office space with built in desk and power point. The kitchen/family room is an outstanding area and a wonderful relaxed and informal social hub at the heart of the home. Being of L' shaped design it offers two well defined areas with a dedicated dining area to one side with large bi-fold doors opening directly to the terrace and rear gardens. It is superbly fitted and features a great array of storage cabinets in pale grey colours with matching Corian worksurfaces. This area has been beautifully designed to provide a floor to ceiling bank of cupboards on two walls which incorporate two Neff ovens and a central Neff microwave/combination oven with warming drawer beneath. A large central island with breakfast bar has a five burner Neff induction hob with stainless steel extractor over, and there is a built in dishwasher and integrated AEG larder fridge and freezer. There is a further understairs storage area off the dining area and a doorway leading through to the garden, perfect for muddy children and pets entering from the garden! Set off the lobby is a cloakroom and a very good size utility room with further storage and space for washing and drying appliances.
The first floor landing runs virtually the full width of the property from which there are five bedrooms enjoying the fine westerly views across the hillside to the front or lovely aspects over the rear garden. The family bathroom is beautifully appointed with Limestone floor with underfloor heating and wall tiles, a separate and equally smart shower room with WC that could be incorporated as a principal bedroom/dressing room and en suite if so desired.
The home has full gas fired central heating with a modern Worcester gas boiler in a cupboard on the first floor landing and with double glazing throughout.
The rear garden is approached directly through the bifold doors from the kitchen opening to a large expanse of terrace, perfect for entertaining large numbers of family and friends. Without doubt the gardens are a very noteworthy feature of this home being substantially larger than average and enjoying a terrific sense of privacy, fully enclosed by mature evergreen hedging on all sides. From the terrace, three easy steps lead up to a gently sloping expanse of lawn with wide shrub and flower borders on either side. Toward the top end of the garden is a delightful Koi pond with sun terrace adjacent and featuring a carved oak walkway spanning the water. A lovely pagoda sits at the very top of the garden with a large Porcelain tiled terrace positioned to capture the afternoon sun. A specimen pine tree sits adjacent to the sun deck and is a lovely focal point at this far end of the garden with a pair of Acers providing wonderful Autumnal colours. A smart timber shed with power and lighting is ideally placed for storing a mower and gardening tools. In all a beautiful garden.
To the front of the property the large secure electric gated driveway offers parking for numerous cars in addition to the attached single garage with up and over doors, power and light.

It is always a joy to show a home as beautifully presented and maintained as this. On first viewing I was bowled over by the surprisingly large and lovely gardens.David Wild
