DESCRIPTION The Coach House is a beautifully presented and spacious family home 'attached' to the side of a fine Victorian country house. The property has been much improved under the current owners tenure and offers all the comforts of modern living whilst retaining a plethora of original features. As you walk through the original archway into the lounge you are sure to be impressed by the grand proportions of this magnificent room, with high ceilings, wooden floors and feature wood burner. There is an opening through to a well proportioned kitchen / dining room with fully fitted kitchen which in turn leads through to the garden room with double doors out to the rear garden. The flow of the property makes it wonderful for entertaining and day to day family living. To the rear of the property there is a very useful and well appointed ground floor shower room. To the first floor one will find three good sized bedrooms served by family bathroom. The Coach House also offers detached double garage with electric roller doors and a home office / hobby room with kitchenette and WC. The property is accessed via gated entrance which leads down the driveway offering ample parking area and leads to the double garage. The mature gardens are equally attractive and offer a large level lawned front garden to the front and a most attractive rear courtyard providing a lovely setting to enjoy coffee and the morning papers or an evening 'sun downer'. The Coach House is well situated on the edge of the village in a 'no through' lane. Within a few minutes' drive you can get to the M5 motorway at St Georges (Junction 21) with easy access to Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and the national motorway network. There are also good railway links and Bristol Airport is also within a short drive. A superb home which is sure to attract a lot of interest.

Our vendor says ... As soon as we walked through the amazing arched door we fell in love with the lounge. It was a lovely day and the light was pouring in which really enhanced the beautiful proportions and high ceilings making it so light and airy. It has been wonderful in the summer with the double doors opening straight on to the gardens and we loved coming in from work during the colder winter months and lighting the wood burner, it makes it so cosy and homely. The kitchen / dining room is the heart of the home and the flow through the house has allowed us to have some great get-togethers with friends and family. Whilst eating our lunch in the courtyard it is very soothing to hear the neighbouring cows gentling 'mooing away'. We have put huge amounts of work into getting the house perfect for us and we are very sad to be leaving.

We have noticed ... Selling properties like The Coach House makes our job such a pleasure. It is a stunning family home and it offers so much with the double garage and home office, spacious parking area and lovely gardens. It is well situated to the edge of the village and is in a great position to offer semi-rural life whilst being well positioned for those needing to commute. An early viewing is a must! 

SITUATION The North Somerset village of Banwell is within easy driving distance of the cities of Bristol, Weston-super-Mare, Bath, Wells and the national motorway network, making it an ideal choice for the commuter. The village itself has local facilities including shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, primary school and pre-school, with more comprehensive shopping, social and recreational facilities at the above mentioned cities and the coastal town of Weston-super-Mare. Secondary schooling is at nearby Churchill with its associated sports complex and nearby dry-ski slope. The Mendip hills are close by with an excellent range of country pursuits readily available, including riding, walking and caving, whilst the Chew and Yeo Valley’s with the Chew and Blagdon lakes offering excellent sailing and fishing.
