DESCRIPTION Set right in the centre of Wrington and in our view one of the most prestigious properties in this North Somerset idyll is Wrington Cottage, a hugely surprising and utterly deceptive (from the rear) four bedroom Victorian cottage of charm and character set in private gardens of just over a quarter of an acre.

Without knowing it was there, you'd be forgiven for missing this stunning Victorian house of space and charm. Yet once you open the imposing entrance gates on the road and proceed through the arched entrance-way, the full extent of this wonderful opportunity becomes apparent. You enter a 'secret garden' style walled utopia of privacy and greenery, south facing and surveyed proudly by a stunning family home of space and versatility. The extended accommodation is impressive and extensive yet crucially does still offer much scope for a buyer of vision to remodel, extend and impose their own personality (subject to consents). It briefly comprises, on the ground floor; entrance hall, good sized drawing room and good sized living room with large storage cupboard. A well appointed kitchen with an Aga opens to a beautiful extended dining/family room with dual aspect trifold doors that really serve to bring the garden in, and there is access to a utility room with separate downstairs WC. Upstairs the quality continues as there are four good sized double bedrooms, all with views of the garden, a well appointed family bathroom WC and a separate WC. Everywhere one looks internally there are impressive features, both the character, including sash bay windows and carved feature fireplaces in the reception rooms and the practical, including partial underfloor heating, gas central heating, larder/pantry and substantial storage.

The outside space really is of a standard very rarely seen in the middle of the country, let alone hidden away in a convenient central village spot. Our vendors have green fingers and have therefore turned the beautiful private gardens of 0.273 acres (Promap) into a varied haven with delineated yet joined up areas offering constant interest and possibility for the keenest of gardeners. This comprises a large area of lawning, varied borders, beds and mature trees including an array of fruit trees and extensive kitchen garden area. This walled haven is totally private and south facing, and is the perfect outdoor space for al fresco dining, for the kids to run around in. Coupled with this, and not always the case with a property of this vintage, the cottage also has a good sized garage with a roller door, and a separate store room with potential for a variety of further uses.

It is widely recognised that the village of Wrington is one of the premium "hot spot" places to live south of Bristol. Wrington Cottage is tucked away deceptively in the centre of the village with its range of amenities, shops and pubs, and fantastic transport routes to Bristol, Bath and the M5 motorway.

For lovers of walking or equestrian pursuits the village is also surrounded by some of the most beautiful and varied countryside anyone could wish to find. Wrington Cottage is a one-off in every aspect, a jewel of a Victorian property and when you step through the gates it offers an ambiance and outside space, quite literally, of a bygone era.

Our vendor says ... We have lived at the property for 12 years and bought it before it had even hit the market. We will never forget walking through the archway and catching our first glimpse of the garden, it was so unexpected. It literally stopped us in our tracks and left us speechless. We are particularly proud of the extension... We improved on the architect's original plans to make it even better and love the folding doors, which open right up to make the room seem part of the garden. We have loved our private spot, right in the centre of this friendly village, with the pubs, restaurants and shops within walking distance.

We have noticed ... A beautiful tucked away village cottage of uniqueness and charm set in a central village location with gardens to die for. I have been a part of Wrington life for 35 years and have passed this stunning period cottage on hundreds of occasions without having an inkling of what is hidden behind those walls. Gardens of a quality and size virtually unseen in a central village spot and living accommodation with versatility, luxury and real further potential for the right buyer. Trust us, this must be viewed to be fully appreciated. 

SITUATION Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington (www.wringtonsomerset.org.uk) is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset. Picturesque with a lengthy and interesting history, it benefits from facilities usually reserved for a larger town, including two pubs (one with an excellent restaurant), church and a chapel, a primary school (awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted), post office, public transport, petrol station, pharmacy, satellite doctor's surgery, dentist, coffee shop, grocery shop off licence/convenience shop and even two florist/gift shops (one in the village centre and one on the outskirts). Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk), also recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (with transport for local children provided daily), and which also benefits from a modern sports complex open to the general public. Further schools, both state and private, are at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and the Chew Valley. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles. The village itself is within commuting distance of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway station at Yatton.
