A substantial detached home with annexe set in delightful grounds with paddock and stables
From the driveway this substantial, detached home is tucked behind a secure, gated entrance with a sweeping gravel driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles. The generous grounds to the side and rear are quite unexpected and the outlook across the gardens and paddock takes on a delightfully rural feel.
A canopied entrance opens to the bright tiled hallway with modern shower room and cloakroom to one side. Originally two rooms, a large through lounge has a pair of bay windows overlooking the gardens with a lovely brick stone fireplace with decorative carved oak surround. The polished oak flooring is very much in-keeping with the original era of the home. To the rear of the hallway is the kitchen and dining room which in turn opens to an exceptionally large double glazed conservatory. The kitchen features extensive storage with a blue pearl granite work surface and a five burner Rangemaster stove. Set off the conservatory is a useful utility area with plumbing for a washing appliances and also forming a link through to the adjacent annex.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a very large family bathroom with corner bath, walk in shower and his and hers basins. The inner landing leads to a further staircase rising to the stunning principal bedroom with Velux windows commanding delightful aspects over the grounds and an open plan en suite bathroom with stylish circular bath and architecturally styled cylindrical basins. This fine hotel style suite is a terrific feature of the home.
The large lawned garden in which the house sits is laid predominantly to lawn, interspersed with a series of specimen deciduous trees that include a fine Beech tree immediately to the rear of the home. The garden is bordered by a post and rail fence with gateway into the stable yard with three loose boxes, a tractor barn and parking for numerous cars. To the side of the house sits a fully self-contained one bedroom annex that generates significant private rental income.

I love that this home offers such desirable country home atttrbutes including such extensive grounds and stabling yet is so close to Bristol and all that the city has to offer, never mind the wonderful range of amenities in the lovely market town on Thornbury right on the doorstep!David Wild
