DESCRIPTION Cottage lovers take note! Old Cottages is a delightful and deceptive period village cottage set in an attractive established backwater close to the centre of this ever-popular North Somerset village. With deeds going back 200 years, this historic cottage (once two separate properties) effortlessly combines contemporary style with period features, including beams, hardwood flooring, stripped doors and a stunning inglenook fireplace in the beautiful living room. There are three double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, plus an open plan kitchen with dining area and utility/porch downstairs. The property is warmed by gas central heating and double glazing, has underfloor heating in the porch, and a good amount of storage both in the form of built-in wardrobes in bedroom two, an understairs walk-in pantry and boarded loft space. The walled garden, although not large, is very pretty, easy to maintain, enclosed and private with a southerly aspect. It has a shed for storage to one side and a patio that catches the sun into the evening. The present owners use off-street parking space adjacent to the property to park their car and take advantage of the allotments a short stroll away to grow fruit and vegetables.

The property is set back from Church Street up a drive with great access to the well regarded village school and the shops and pubs that this lovely community offers. For lovers of walking, Blagdon Lake is just a short stroll down the hill and for the commute, Bristol, Bath, Wells, the M5 motorway and the airport are all within easy access. For someone looking for a charming and characterful older property, offering deceptively spacious 'move in and unpack' accommodation, in a peaceful yet convenient village location... they need look no further than Old Cottages.

Our vendor says ... We have been at the property for almost six years and moved here for a complete lifestyle change... To move out of the city and be in the beautiful countryside every day was our aim! We have loved the cosy atmosphere of the cottage with its lovely period features, yet it is unusually light and bright with well proportioned rooms. The inglenook is a real showstopper and full of character and Blagdon as a community has a wonderful spirit and a good range of amenities.

We have noticed ... Are you looking for something a bit unique? Then look no further than Old Cottages. This character packed country cottage is tucked away in its own well located plot with great access to the plethora of amenities that Blagdon offers. Period features abound, from exposed beams, to the original inglenook fireplace, to the incredibly thick walls, it really is an evocative space. Yet it is also spacious, with a fantastic kitchen/dining room for entertaining and three double bedrooms.
