About this property

  • Occupying large and secluded grounds in one of the region's most sought after and highly regarded roads and located just 0.2 miles from the impressive Iron-Age heritage site ‘Cadbury Camp', with its breathtaking views of the Bristol Channel and Wales. The Old Pound is a wonderful opportunity for those seeking to put their own stamp on a property and embark upon a programme of remodelling and renovation. Believed to date to 1967, the house has been in the same family ownership since 1978 and benefitted from a kitchen extension in circa 1985.

    The property is approached via a small quarry tiled entrance hall with cloakroom off leading to the inner hallway with parquet flooring that runs through in to one of the ground floor reception/bedroom. The aforementioned kitchen/dining space is very large with doors opening to the rear garden and is fitted with a range of basic kitchen units and houses an Aga stove. A staircase leads from the kitchen up to the first floor sitting room with a triple aspect that commands wonderful far reaching views over the countryside to the distant hillside beyond. Currently boarded, there is an exposed stone fireplace central to the room. Leading off the sitting room is the principal bedroom, again with a lovely outlook and a dedicated en suite shower room. On the ground floor is a separate shower room, a utility providing a link to the side garden and a further generous reception room with fireplace to the rear. This room may be used as a bedroom or study. As mentioned, the likelihood is that any buyer will remodel the house and subject to planning extend the footprint but it has not been without any modernisation featuring double glazed windows throughout and oil fired central heating.

    The grounds are a significant factor for this property. They are a true haven for wildlife, featuring some magnificent shrubs including a fine Magnolia to the rear, and are bordered by woodlands, providing a wonderful sense of seclusion and privacy. To the front a gated driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles with a detached garage and stone outbuildings.
