A fabulous 4 double bedroom, 2 bathroom and 4 reception room family home dating from the 1920’s found in a quiet, private setting in this premier village lane overlooking open countryside and yet within easy reach of all village amenities including the highly regarded schools.
Picturesque Rushmoor Lane is considered to be one of the most desirable locations in this sought after village and the properties here are of varied style from period farmhouses to more contemporary individual homes. The setting is in so many ways ideal with the house standing well away from any through traffic, overlooking farmland and having the advantage of parkland almost on the doorstep.
The village centre that offers a variety of local shops is barely more than a 5 minute walk away and all of the village schools are within easy reach. In addition, for the commuter Nailsea – Backwell Station is less than a 15 minute walk.
The property is spacious and well presented throughout, while the accommodation is enriched with many attractive features and the proportions are excellent. A classic reception hall offers an immediate impression of space with an easy half return staircase rising via a well-lit stairwell to the first floor. There are original panelled doors to the principal reception rooms, moulded architraves, ceiling cornices and picture rails.
The living room, that is arranged to overlook the garden to the south west, is charming with a wood burning stove set into the fireplace, bespoke book cases fitted to either side of the chimney breast and moulded cornices. A family room - sitting room overlooks the courtyard garden and adds huge flexibility to the living space. Here, there is a Rayburn framed by a fireplace with an original fitted dresser and matching cabinets. The genuine oak flooring adds further character and doors open to both the rear hall and to the study that again has oak flooring.
An outstanding almost 25’ x 17’ (7.62m x 5.18m) open plan kitchen dining room enjoys an outlook over the lawned garden with French doors opening to a terrace. The kitchen area is equipped with a good range of fitted shaker style cabinets, extensive granite work surfaces with a deep glazed Belfast sink inset and a range cooker framed by a fireplace. The ceramic floor tiling flows through to the dining area and from here the French doors lead to the garden.
A cloakroom is arranged off the hall and a utility room is fitted with a range of cupboards and granite work surfaces to match the kitchen with ample appliance space.
On the first floor, the landing opens to the family bathroom and the four spacious double bedrooms.
The principal bedroom is very well proportioned and offers views to the south west and west beyond the gardens to neighbouring farmland. A part glazed door leads through to a combined dressing room and bathroom en suite that has a range of fitted wardrobes/cupboards and fitted bathroom furniture complementing the white suite.
Bedroom two also takes advantage of the views to the west and is another superb double room. The third double room has two pairs of fitted wardrobes that in keeping with all fixtures and fittings suit the style of the house very well. Bedroom four, another full double room, has a vanity unit and basin.
Finally, the family bathroom is well appointed with fitted cabinets, ceramic tiled surrounds and ceramic floor tiling.
Outside: The house stands very well and is screened nicely from the lane by established hedges. The lane passes the house and opens to a private drive that is shared with neighbours and allows access to the private drive for this property.
The gravelled double drive provides parking and leads to the DOUBLE GARAGE with a pair of up and over doors, lighting, power, a window and a personnel door to the side.
Double gates open from the drive to an attractive, private gravelled courtyard that may be used for additional parking space, but is equally suitable as a sheltered area for outdoor living with a large Gazebo set to one side.
The paved terrace and lawn can be found on the south west side of the house so offers a very sunny aspect right into the evening. An arbour partially shelters the terrace while the lawn is level and well screened with a wide variety of established shrubs, bushes and hedging.
The house is almost the last property in the lane and there is no through access for vehicles ensuring peace and quiet. The path leads via a kissing gate at the bottom of the lane to the adjoining park which is ideal for dog walking or more energetic activity.
