    About this property

    • Set high on the popular slopes of Dundry Hill and occupying a delightful rural location, this exceptionally smart barn conversion originally served Upper Grove Farm next door. In the 1990's it was converted to a high standard to create a very desirable and characterful residence and the current owner has invested further with modern upgrades and a degree of remodelling, now offering beautifully presented accommodation, decorated in calming and stylish Farrow and Ball colours throughout.

      The property is set well off the lane at the head of an impressive, gated driveway that certainly provides a most pleasing sense of arrival. A paved and gravel forecourt provides parking for a number of cars in additional to a further space located to the rear. An entrance vestibule with storage cupboard opens into the inner hallway with cloakroom. The bright and particularly light kitchen is a noteworthy feature of the home, designed for informal entertaining of a large number of family and friends and the generously appointed ground floor accommodation offers a good deal of flexibility with its layout, currently with two home offices and a dedicated fitness room in addition to the spacious but cosy sitting room with exposed stone walls and wood burning stove.

      The first floor is equally charming, with two staircases creating a neat divide between the luxurious principal suite on the southern wing of the house and the three remaining bedrooms which include an en suite guest bedroom.

      The level area of garden that adjoins the house has been landscaped for ease of maintenance and features a paved terrace bordered by well tended, neatly clipped shrubs. A good size storage shed is set at the end of the garden.

      Adjacent to the property is the area of woodland that sweeps up the hillside and is a haven for local wildlife – it is hard to believe that Bristol city centre is so close by. A steep, winding pathway leads up from the driveway to the paddock on the plateau above – a truly idyllic setting with outstanding views across the valley below, to Barrow Reservoir and with access to Dundry common, perfect for dog walking and leading across fields to the church and the village pub.

    On walking up to the paddock big open skies and magnificent views took my breath away – a truly special place!
