DESCRIPTION Built in 1994 by the current owner and set on a very popular lane of bespoke property in the village of Shipham is Meadow House, an attractive brick built detached house with well presented and versatile family sized accommodation. Well positioned for local amenities and schools and fantastic for transport routes and the beautiful surrounding countryside, for families this represents a convenient and easy maintenance home with accommodation the match of many older character properties. The modern, light and airy living space is well laid out and spacious and briefly comprises on the ground floor; entrance hall, sizeable lounge, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, downstairs WC and luxury conservatory. Upstairs there is a family bathroom, an en suite shower room and four double bedrooms (the property was originally designed and has the square footage of a five bedroom but was amended at planning by the current owners). There is a sizeable integral double garage, off street parking and very attractive gardens at the front side and rear, mature and well tended and with a real feeling of privacy and tranquillity. The property is warmed by gas central heating and double glazing and although extremely well looked after internally, still has much scope for any potential buyer to put their own stamp on things. Shipham is a lovely little community with great access for the commute to Bristol and Bath and our vendor has informed us that one of the things that they will miss the most about Meadow House, is the lovely neighbours. Internal viewings essential!

Our vendor says ... We built Meadow House ourselves 20 years ago and had design input. It really has turned into a wonderfully comfortable family home and we really would change nothing about it. We are particularly proud of the Portland stone fireplace and the conservatory we have constructed to the rear. There is also plenty of storage and the garage is great for prolific tinkerers! We will be very sad to leave as it really is wonderfully friendly and pleasant village.

We have noticed ... A really solid and deceptively sizeable four bedroom detached family home set in this ever popular North Somerset village. When our vendors bought the plot in 1994 Meadow House was originally specified as a five bedroom detached house, but they amended the plans meaning that all of the bedrooms are of a very good size and generally there is a lot of versatility to the accommodation. 'Move in and unpack' as the saying goes! 

SITUATION Shipham is a highly sought after village nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by both primary ( and middle schools ( and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with the Mendip Hills close by with convenient routes to primary business centres. Indeed, it is very well positioned for local transport links and the M5 motorway which is accessible via junction 20 at Clevedon, junction 21 at St Georges and junction 22 at Edithmead. Village facilities are available, including butcher/stores, garage, public house, hotel and further shopping facilities at nearby Winscombe and Cheddar. The new village hall (with its stage, sports hall, function rooms and kitchen) is a popular centre for a broad range of community events and activities for all ages. Private sector schooling is close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School ( is nearby and for sports and recreational amenities, Churchill School is a drive away. The surrounding area is excellent riding country and is sure to appeal to equestrian enthusiasts and walkers. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to the mainline railway station at Yatton. 

DIRECTIONS From the A38, turn left after the petrol station and continue into the village of Shipham, once almost at the centre turn left into North Down Lane and the property can be found a little way up on your right hand side.
