Viewing by appointment from 3rd September..... A very special, individual architect designed 4 bedroom 3-bathroom modern detached home of character and outstanding energy efficiency found in a hidden away setting in one of the premier addresses in Backwell with a sizeable, private level garden and well-designed accommodation that offers great flexibility. Highly recommended.
This very appealing and beautifully maintained home enjoys a quiet, secluded position well away from passers-by and through traffic but well placed for all village amenities including the highly regarded local schools.
Throughout, the property is offered in very good order and the accommodation is spacious and designed to flow attractively with a host of lovely features including extensive open plan spaces, a superb almost square living room, genuine oak flooring, wood burning stoves, a good quality fitted kitchen and the advantage of space to extend the house or the garage.
The property is well placed for nearby parkland, the village tennis club, picturesque open countryside, and the shopping in the centre of the village including a bakery, a post office, a newsagent, a wine merchant and a general store. The schooling in Backwell is very good and the communications are excellent with easy access to Bristol (8 miles) by road, rail (mainline station) and via the SUSTRANS cycle way.
The House and Garden:
The deep eaves shelter the front door that opens to a reception hall with oak flooring, a staircase rising to the first floor and oak doors off. The hall gives an immediate sense of light and space very much a design feature of this house with the eye drawn through to the living room and then out to the rear.
The more than generous living room overlooks and opens to the terrace and the garden and has a Minster stone fireplace with a wood burning stove inset.
A doorway also opens to the large open plan family room – dining area and kitchen that similarly opens to the rear garden with further French doors. Here, a second wood burner is set on a shaped glass hearth while the very social arrangement of the adjoining kitchen is partially separated by a peninsular breakfast bar.
The kitchen area is well appointed with integrated appliances, a range cooker, a chimney hood and space for an American style fridge freezer. A utility room adjoins the kitchen and allows access in turn to the area at the side of the house.
The study (or double bedroom) off the hall provides worthwhile additional space and there is a cloakroom – shower room too offering great versatility.
On the first floor, the landing leads to the family bathroom and three more double bedrooms each with eaves storage space. The unusually spacious principal bedroom has a suite of fitted wardrobes and a door opens to an en suite shower room.
The garage is arranged at a right angle to the house and there is space between both buildings which is large enough to park a car or build into, thus connecting the house and garage with an additional room or rooms if needed. On the far side of the garage, there is yet more space allowing the opportunity to create a larger double garage if you desire.
The house is approached from Church Lane via a long private drive, one neighbouring property has partial right of way over the initial part of the drive. The drive arrives at a granite block paved forecourt that provides parking and turning space with parking available for a boat or touring caravan.
Pretty floral borders frame the forecourt and a gate leads to the side and rear garden that is a further, particular feature of the property with a shaped paved terrace set against the back of the house which is bathed in sunshine right into the evening. The extensive lawn also takes advantage of a sunny southerly and westerly aspect and is enclosed partly by local stone walls, timber panel fencing and established hedges and trees that combine to give a high degree of privacy.
The garage stands to the side of the drive and has light and power connected. There is a personnel door to the side and a remote-control roller door to the front.
