A fine individual double fronted detached family house that has been extensively updated and improved in recent years creating a very spacious 5 bedroom home with 3 superb reception room, a fabulous open plan kitchen – diner family room and gardens totalling almost ½ acre.
The house is believed to have originally been built in the 1930’s and stands in a private setting off Farleigh Road where a series of desirable individual homes of quality are in so many ways ideally placed within easy reach of all village amenities including the highly regarded schools and the station that offers direct trains to London. There are a series of local shops, two pubs, a Tennis Club, a football club, a gym and a leisure centre with a swimming pool. A wider range of facilities are offered in neighbouring Nailsea and Backwell is well placed for Bristol which is just 8 miles away and is easily accessible by car, bus, train or bicycle via the SUSTRANS national cycle network.
The accommodation is beautifully proportioned and extends to over 2,600 Sq.Ft, while the layout of the house flows very well with the main living rooms arranged to take full advantage of an outlook over the attractive rear garden.
The House and Garden:
A traditional reception hall invites you into the house and opens in turn to the principal reception rooms and the outstanding kitchen – family room. A staircase rises to the first floor and a cloakroom is set to the front.
The welcoming feel continues throughout with the exceptional double aspect living room being an absolute joy offering an outlook to the front with a broad low sill bay window and patio doors that lead to the terrace and rear garden. A further feature of this lovely room is the open hearth fireplace with a wood burning stove inset.
The sitting room has almost wall to wall bi-fold doors that again allow an outlook to the rear and bathe the room in natural light with the terrace partly sheltered by an attractive veranda. A double doorway ensures that the flow of the house continues from the terrace through to the dining room that also overlooks the rear garden and opens in turn to the Kitchen – Family Room.
Here the kitchen and sitting areas are visually divided by an island that creates space for informal dining and a lovely casual seating area is complete with a woodburning stove. The kitchen overlooks the forecourt and drive and is fitted with an excellent range of contemporary Shaker style wall and floor cupboards with ample work surfaces and ceramic tiled surrounds. There is an inset one and a half bowl stainless steel sink, an integrated dish washer, a 5 burner range cooker with triple electric ovens and a chimney hood above and space is provided for an American style fridge freezer framed by cabinets (the existing fridge freezer may be available by separate negotiation).
Light and space is always at a premium in a kitchen, but this room delivers both and a pair of Velux windows add to the airy feel.
Light and space is always at a premium in a kitchen, but this room delivers both and a pair of Velux windows add to the airy feel and a glazed door leads to a generous utility room.
The utility room is equipped with wall and floor cupboards, a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink, space for a washing machine and a tumble drier and a cupboard housing the Worcester gas fired boiler. A door leads to the terrace and rear garden and another door opens to a further cloakroom with W.C.
On the first floor the house offers five bedrooms with the first bedroom currently furnished as a study. The principal bedroom suite is remarkably spacious with the bedroom arranged to allow an outlook again to the rear. A dressing room and a full bathroom en suite complement the room and a matching family bathroom again with a freestanding bath and separate shower enclosure can be found off the landing.
This impressive property is approached via a private drive with the entrance flanked by dressed stone walls and screened by a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The gated forecourt provides parking and turning space and leads to the detached Double Garage that has remote controlled roller door, light and power. The attic space above the garage has been fully boarded to give a large storage area with ladder access.
A path and gate at the side of the house lead to a broad storage area with space for a timber garden shed, wheelie bins etc. and access beyond to the paved terrace and rear garden.
The rear garden is an absolute delight and though mature and well established the landscaping has been designed for ease of maintenance.
The full width terrace is enhanced by a recently added Veranda hat suits the house very well and shelters the central section of the terrace adjoining the sitting room, perfect for outdoor entertaining.
The garden is laid mostly to lawn bounded by hedging and a timber fencing that offers a high degree of privacy with a second paved terrace, shaped beds and a pond with waterfall. Overall, the gardens amount to approximately .4 acre – 016ha.
