A detached Chew Valley home with lovely views across open farmland
Located in the heart of the Chew Valley this individual detached home was built by Magenta Properties in 1995 and occupies an excellent position on the lane with views across expansive open farm land to the front. Approached via a generous Cotswold gravel driveway, with parking for four vehicles. The house has an attractive front elevation with stone and render finishes with neat brick coynes and headers. A canopied entrance porch leads to a welcoming galleried hallway with slate flooring with a series of rooms including a cloakroom radiating off this area. A good size study sits to one side of the hallway with a wide bay window commanding a lovely aspect to the front to the countryside beyond. Originally there were two garages, now just the one with the second having been converted to a further reception which is currently used as a second study. In conjunction with the unconverted garage, this side of the house could easily be adapted to provide annexed accommodation for a dependent relative. The sitting room is approached via double doors with a centrally placed stone fireplace with wood burning stone and a large hearth. To either side of the chimney breast there are attractive alcove cupboards with book shelving above. This room has a pleasant outlook to the rear garden. Further double doors from the hallway lead to the kitchen and dining room, with a good range of built in storage cabinets, granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink and a recess housing an oil fired AGA with supplementary integrated stainless steel oven and ceramic induction hob above. Double doors open to the rear garden. Set off the rear of the kitchen is useful utility area, with plumbing for washing machine and housing the Eurostar oil fired central heating boiler. Stable doors lead to the side of the property.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms with the principle bedroom enjoying a great feeling of separation and privacy approached via an individual staircase from the half landing and commanding wonderful panoramic views from a pair of large picture windows. This room has a discreet walk in wardrobe area and a dedicated wet room with walk in shower, WC and designer vanity unit. Set off the main landing is a very good size guest suite with walk through dressing area, built in wardrobes and a large bathroom with shower and bath. There are three further double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a patio area for entertaining family and friends, mature borders and a pair of raised vegetable beds. There is side pedestrian access to the front driveway with an additional small lawned area screened by mature hedging on the lane.
The home offers scope for a degree of cosmetic updating and is a wonderful opportunity to secure a well laid out and an individually architect designed home in the heart of the ever popular Chew Valley.

I consider this country home a wonderfully therapeutic alternative to city living just a short drive from both Bristol and Bath with the joy of waking up to views of grazing animals on the farmland opposite!David Wild
