A discreetly hidden family home set in truly delightful mature grounds.
Grey Roofs is a significantly remodelled and extended detached home located within one of the region's most sought after villages. Perfectly located for swift access to the motorway network and mainline rail station at Bristol Parkway, the home sits at the higher end of this prestigious road and is approached via a particularly long gated driveway.
On approaching the property, the house cannot be seen from the lane as the drive winds past mature hedges with Beech and Rhododendron, providing perfect screening as the approach opens out to a circular turning area to the front of the home. The driveway itself provides parking for many vehicles in addition to the generous integral double garage. The home was first built in the 1968 and extended in 2001 providing the property with stylish and individual architectural elevations.
A central doorway leads into a wide hallway with a feature open tread timber and chrome staircase rising to the first floor. A very good size cloakroom with storage for outdoor clothing is at the far end of the hall and provides a direct link through into the large garage with electric roller doors. To the far side of the hallway is the lovely sitting room, featuring a high vaulted ceiling and a dual aspect windows, bathing the room with a good deal of natural light. A contemporary gas fire is built into the wall on one side providing both warmth and a good focal point to the room. Three easy steps lead down to the dining room with attractive timber flooring and with sliding glazed doors leading out to the adjoining garden room/conservatory. The open plan layout works exceptionally well for those that enjoy large scale entertaining allowing guests to drift between the kitchen through to the dining area and directly out into the garden but with ability to close off this end of the house if a quieter area is required. The superb kitchen is a significant feature of the home with a dedicated dining area to one side and beautifully fitted with an extensive range of built in storage cabinets and granite work surfaces. A Belling range style cooker with induction hob is neatly fitted into the peninsula with further built in appliances including Neff ovens with warming drawer and integrated Miele fridge freezer. A free standing Siemens dishwasher is also included in the sale. The dedicated utility room with space for both a washing machine and tumble dryer is set directly off the kitchen with a further sink unit and work space.
The first floor landing benefits from the tall ground to first floor windows and on this level there are five bedrooms, a number of which enjoy the magnificent far reaching views over the adjoining countryside towards the Severn Estuary. The large guest room features a smartly appointed en suite shower room and the principal suite is of exceptionally generous size replicating the vaulted ceiling in the lounge with a dedicated walk- through dressing room. There is a large en suite bathroom with a contemporary freestanding bath, Hansgrohe shower cubicle and matching designer sanitaryware. Double doors open from the bedroom onto the Juliet balcony from which to enjoy fine aspects over the beautiful gardens.
These are certainly an exceptional feature of this fine home, clearly very well loved by the current owners and beautifully combining colourful ornamental planting with large expanses of lawn. There is a terrace for outdoor dining and a natural area with a path cut through wild flowers and grasses that lead to a mature orchard with Pear, Plum and Apple trees. A perfectly placed bench seat sits on an elevated area of the garden, commanding breath taking views over countryside to the Severn Bridge. A large hot tub adjacent to the property is included in the sale. A fully enclosed area of the garden, perfect for those with young children or pets lies just off the dining area of the kitchen and is a lovely sheltered area, well screened by the back drop of mature trees. Tucked in the corner is a particularly large timber cabin which would make a terrific home office for those that now have the option of working from home. There is a further stone outbuilding used predominantly for storage and the side of which is a hidden area for bins, garden equipment and a small potting shed.
