DESCRIPTION Set in a semi rural and convenient spot on the edge of Congresbury with very attractive countryside views is Heath Cottage, a charming five bedroom 1790's built attached cottage with sizeable extended accommodation. From this description the property sounds appealing, however the feature that really sets Heath Cottage apart from the norm is its plot, which measures a third of an acre and comprises multiple outbuildings, large lawn, kitchen garden area, children's play area and substantial gravelled parking. For lovers of the countryside, for those in search of the 'Good Life', or for those just wanting something that they can get their teeth into, Heath Cottage offers myriad possibilities. Our vendors have been in situ for 7 years and in that period have undertaken an extensive range of updating and extension works which really have taken the property to the next level both aesthetically and practically. They have worked wonders in maintaining the numerous character points of interest whilst providing a living space with all the contemporary features expected of a modern family.

Internally the house offers a well proportioned, character, renovated living accommodation of getting on for 1800 sq ft (including the loft rooms). It briefly comprises on the ground floor; entrance hall, fitted kitchen, dining room, 23' living room, play room, versatile bedroom and downstairs WC. Upstairs you will find four further good sized bedrooms, and a family bathroom and up again (via a ladder) you will find a loft room (with some restrictive head room) currently used as a hobby space. The property is warmed by a mixture of gas fired central heating, underfloor heating and upvc double glazing, and has the added character bonuses of wood burner for those cosy winter evenings in and slate tiled flooring.

To the side there is five bar gated access to a large gravel parking area where you will find both a single garage with store room/potential utility at the rear and double sized garage (which is currently partially used as a pen for a pet duck and her duckling!). The rest of the gardens have been stunningly landscaped by our current vendors to create a useable yet nicely delineated, easy maintenance outside space. This includes rubber chippinged play area for the kids, extensive paved patio, large area of lawning with mature tree surround, and fenced kitchen garden area with well stocked raised vegetable beds and greenhouse. It really is a wonderfully varied space for those with green fingers and would be perfect for those wanting a few chickens or indeed ducks! A further added bonus in the garden is the old pig sty which has been converted into an extensive workshop with power and light, great for those who run a little business, or enjoy tinkering, and with real potential for alternate uses.

Set on the Old Weston Road, the property has far reaching views across open fields to the Mendip Hills beyond, and of course for lovers of walking, is surrounded by some of the most varied and beautiful countryside anyone could hope to find. The Old Weston Road is situated on the edge of Congresbury in a highly convenient spot for amenities and schools, with Weston-super-Mare just down the road, the M5 easily accessible and convenient transport routes to both Bristol, Bath and further afield. In our view Heath Cottage represents a huge amount of character cottage, land and outbuildings at these figures and we would therefore highly recommend an early viewing.

Our vendor says ... We bought Heath Cottage as it ticked all our boxes for moving out of the city... A cottage look and feel, with generous sized rooms, far reaching views of the Mendips, ample parking, loads of outdoor space and plenty of potential. We have loved bringing the property up to spec. The log burner is a lovely feature and the subtle changes inside have made the flow work well including the creation of additional space, like, for example, the play room which was previously not being used. The garden has been transformed making it a wonderful, safe and enjoyable place to relax and play, with areas for everyone, from the ducks and the vegetable plot, to the kids play areas and spaces for al fresco dining. We are only relocating for work and family reasons.

We have noticed ... This period character cottage is highly deceptive, immaculately presented and must be seen internally to be fully appreciated. Our vendors have done a wonderful job taking it to the next level both internally and externally... Indeed, it is tremendous value at these figures with over a third of an acre and with huge versatility - the views stretch to the Mendips - they really are lovely. If you have chickens or ducks you will not be disappointed and even if you don't, there is an extensively stocked kitchen garden area and outbuildings and large lawned garden to boot. Yes, there is some road noise as the garden stretches down to the main road, but this is reflected in the asking price and the pros far outweigh the cons. For families, schools are great, and for those wanting an easy commute, it is very convenient. Must be seen!
