About this property

  • This fine property has been comprehensively remodelled and restyled to offer elegant contemporary accommodation of the highest order. Occupying a discreet hillside location yet just a short distance from the bustling high street of Chew Magna and within 7 miles of Clifton Village, this beautiful home must surely occupy one of the most desirable plots of ground not only within the Chew Valley but also the wider South West region. Set almost centrally within its 12 acres, the home sits high above sweeping lawns with a large level area on which was once sited a lawn tennis court and is the perfect position for those seeking to reinstate such or maybe to create an outdoor swimming pool. Approached via a paviour, gated driveway which winds to the side of the house, there is a substantial detached garage and parking for many vehicles. There remains scope to complete the conversion of the large barn to the rear to create an annex, leisure suite or home office, with a further storage barn that may have value to anyone seeking to maximise the planning gain. On a day to day basis, the property is entered by a newly completed glazed vestibule with access to a laundry/ boot room which is well appointed with a good degree of storage and separate plant room housing the oil fired central heating boiler and pressurised hot water tank. A smart ground floor cloakroom is set off this utility space. The kitchen/dining room is a noteworthy part of the home providing an exceptionally generous entertaining area for large numbers of family and friends and enjoying a fine dual aspect across the front and rear grounds. Doors open directly onto the extensive flagstone terrace that runs the full width of the house and enjoys a wonderful southerly aspect. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with bespoke oak cabinets, granite work surfaces, Belfast style sink and a five oven electric AGA. A doorway from the kitchen links through to the first of the three reception rooms which radiate off the formal entrance hall, with beautiful black limestone flooring that runs seamlessly into the kitchen dining room. The galleried stair case is a smart and clever design, creating an impressive entrance statement and ensuring that maximum light floods through into this welcoming and important area. The second of these two reception rooms is a more intimate space, predominantly used as a television/media room but equally suitable as a playroom or a dedicated living space for teenagers and their friends. Three gentle steps from the hallway lead down to the very large formal drawing room with triple aspect, doors to the terrace and with an open working fire place. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, three of which are en suite with a further family bathroom with beautiful Porcelanosa freestanding bath and walk-in rain shower. The guest suite enjoys a good sense of privacy with its own dedicated balcony overlooking the gardens. The principal bedroom suite is of a magnificent quality with a high vaulted ceiling and an enormous en suite bathroom and a large walk-in dressing room. Indeed all the bathrooms in the house are of an impressive boutique hotel style.

    The ornamental gardens lie predominantly to the south of the house and there is a second vehicular access just up the lane from the main entrance, perfect for those requiring access to the rear yard with horse boxes or commercial vehicles. The land that rises to the rear of the house offers superb views over the Chew Valley and Lake, to the Mendip Hills beyond.

The combination of the outstanding 12 acre grounds, magnificent views and the amazing, stylish interior are a winning combination for me. All available within such a short drive from my office in the city.
