A most elegant Listed Georgian home in the heart of the village
The village of Pucklechurch is approximately 10.6 miles from the centre of Bristol and 11 miles from the centre of Bath via the nearby ring road (A4174). Commutable village life and beautiful countryside surrounds make Pucklechurch a popular choice for those wanting access to these two major Cities, the Cotswolds and to the nearby market town of Chipping Sodbury. The village is served by local stores including the village bakery, post office, convenience store and several Public Houses. There is also Pucklechurch C of E infant school and a village recreation ground.
This fine Grade II Listed period home occupies a prominent position within the heart of this South Gloucestershire village, perfectly placed for those requiring swift access to either Bath or Bristol being placed virtually equidistant between the two. Set behind an impressive gated entrance with gravel driveway sweeping from the front of the house to further parking and garaging to the rear. This elegant stone built residence has a pleasing symmetry to the front elevation and would appeal to those seeking character and charm of the Georgian era.
The wonderfully proportioned entrance hall features original exposed stone flooring and leads to the inner hallway with fine central staircase to the first floor. To either side of the hallway are two beautifully proportioned reception rooms, both with dual aspect and with 12 pane sliding sash windows and working shutters. Within the drawing room, the exposed timber floorboards add a sense warmth and charm to the room and this is undoubtedly a most comfortable space for entertaining family and friends, with a wonderful open fireplace set within a wide marble surround. . The Dining Room has a living flame gas fire and enjoys delightful outlook to both the front and rear across lovely lawned garden. The inner hallway is certainly an attractive part of the home with aged parquet flooring running its full depth and access to the garden can be made through the courtyard door to the rear or via the outer vestibule providing useful space for storage of coats and outdoor footwear. Set beneath the staircase is a cloakroom and storage area. The study is a more intimate space and is equally well used as a quiet reading room, snug or cosy TV room. The kitchen is of a good size with space for an informal breakfast table and features a wonderful Aga stove, wide stripped floorboards and superb period, hand crafted storage unit running the full length of one wall. A first floor galleried style landing leads to the master bedroom with views towards the village church and four further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as first floor laundry space. Four of these bedrooms feature attractive period fireplaces and in addition to the large five piece family bathroom there is a separate shower room for children and guests. It is worth noting that the master bedroom could be adapted as self contained suite with dedicated dressing room if only four bedrooms are required.
For a home set in the heart of the village, Pucklechurch House has a very good size garden with level lawn, a fish pond and mixed fruit trees that include peach, pear and apple. A fine specimen twisted Ash sits toward the far end of the garden with a mature hedge screening the productive kitchen garden with a series of raised vegetable beds, chicken runs and storage shed. The compost area is also well hidden, approached via a pathway to one side of the lawn with further sheltered patio set beside the Kitchen. Adjacent to the garage is a useful open log store and there is private, secure parking for a number of vehicles.
