DESCRIPTION Set at the end of a quiet and convenient Shipham cul de sac is 19 Gloversfield, a well presented and thoughtfully extended three bedroom detached chalet bungalow with stunning views across the countryside towards the coast on a clear day. Although originally built as a two bedroom bungalow, the light and bright accommodation is now arranged over two floors and because of the nature of the design really can be a lot of things to a lot of different buyers. It briefly comprises on the ground floor; entrance hallway, living room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room/possible bedroom four, WC, double bedroom and rear porch. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, a luxurious family bathroom with bath and separate double shower, and an undecorated further attic room which our vendor has used as an office. The property is positioned at the end of the cul de sac and offers very attractive front and rear gardens, a garage with utility room to its rear, off street parking, gas central heating and upvc double glazing where stated.

19 Gloversfield is located in a convenient spot in Shipham but as mentioned is surprisingly private, the best of both worlds; well positioned for local amenities and schools, fantastic for transport routes and the commute, great for local countryside, yet a quiet and peaceful haven tucked away as much as you need it to be. For downsizers looking for an easy maintenance 'move in and unpack' property, or for families looking for a step on the ladder, look no further than 19 Gloversfield... a real one-off in a very attractive position, and as it is offered with no chain, we highly recommend a viewing.

Our vendor says ... I have lived at 19 Gloversfield for 18 years and bought it for the fantastic area, great for walking, peaceful, but not too far for local amenities. I have loved those stunning views, the country feel is soothing, and the attractive gardens are great for a table or chairs and al fresco dining. The extension was completed in 1990ish before I moved in and it really does take full advantage of the beautiful outlook.

We have noticed ... Don't judge a book by its cover! This chalet bungalow looks bijou from the outside but actually offers a spacious, light and bright living accommodation of 1270 sq ft (including the garage). That position is stunning, with views that extend across the countryside to the coast on a clear day and the property is eminently well looked after and liveable, although there is still a lot of scope for a buyer with vision to put their own stamp on things.
 

SITUATION Shipham is a highly sought after village nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by both primary (www.shiphamfirst.co.uk) and middle schools (www.fairlands.somerset.sch.uk) 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, as are Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) 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 at the centre turn left into Hollow Road and continue straight on passing Court Lane and Top Road on your right hand side. Continue straight on into Barn Pool and then take a right turn into Gloversfield. The property can be found around the corner at the end of the cul de sac on your right hand side.
