DESCRIPTION Set overlooking open fields on the popular and exclusive Ellick Road on the outskirts of Blagdon is Heatherdown. Once two cottages in the 1800s, it is now a substantially extended and improved detached property of charm and character with a highly versatile living accommodation approximating 1900 sq ft. Our vendors have owned the property since 2006 and have improved it significantly in this period creating a modern light and airy living space where character and luxury abound. The beauty of the position is that it is wonderfully rural in feel, but not in the slightest bit isolated as it is within walking distance of Blagdon village amenities, it is a 20 minute drive to South Bristol, and under a quarter of an hour's drive to Wells. This tucked away spot is set in attractive and varied gardens, and offers some really lovely views over open fields and countryside to the front and to the rear.

It really is a perfect setting for this pretty detached property which has been extended and configured so that it really focuses on the benefits of the idyllic rural locale and the mature garden.

Accommodation is spacious, light and airy and set over two floors. It briefly comprises, on the ground floor; entrance porch, dining room with wood burner, study/snug, 25' living room with a further wood burner, large extended kitchen/breakfast room and downstairs WC. Upstairs you will find five bedrooms, including very generously proportioned master and guest suites, both of which have en suite shower rooms and there is also a family bathroom. The attention to detail internally really is impressive, with character features everywhere one turns. These include tiled flooring, virtually wall spanning upvc triple glazing in the kitchen, wood burning stoves, and a luxurious kitchen with wooden and granite work surfaces and a seven-ring range oven. The property is also warmed by oil fired central heating and a mixture of upvc double and triple glazed glazing.

Outside, as mentioned there is substantial gated off street parking to the side with an impressive wooden cabin for storage (or more) as a replacement for the garage. The property is surrounded by gardens to three sides, a layout which is tracked by the journey of the sun throughout the day - when the sun shines, there is always a sunny spot somewhere in the garden. The property is set back from and below the road, and the gardens include a walled area to the front, leading on to a sizeable lawned area containing a greenhouse and raised vegetable beds to the side, following on through to the rear garden which has a large patio area, perfect for al fresco dining.

Ellick Road is ideally located on the outskirts of Blagdon with good access to the quality schools and amenities that the village offers. For walkers or those interested in equestrian pursuits there is beautiful surrounding countryside (an AONB) and the transport routes to Bristol, Bath and Wells are very convenient.

All in all then, Heatherdown is a superior and deceptively spacious detached home with bags of 'move in and unpack' accommodation and a position to match. As it is so delightful, and offered with no onward chain, we would highly recommend an early viewing. EPC rating D.

 

DIRECTIONS From Churchill traffic lights on the A38, turn onto the A368 towards Bath. Go through Upper Langford and turn right signposted to Burrington Combe. Proceed right to the top and take the first left hand turn into Ellick Road. Heatherdown can be found a little way down on your left hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale Board. 

SITUATION The village of Blagdon in North Somerset is located on the slopes of the Mendip Hills overlooking Blagdon Lake, which is famous for its trout fishing. The whole area is one of outstanding natural beauty and there are splendid views of the surrounding hills and open countryside. Riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry-skiing are just some of the activities available around. The village facilities include a convenience store and post office, 3 public houses, parish church, Blagdon Primary School (www.blagdon.n-somerset.sch.uk) and Blagdon Pre-School. Further information about the village can be obtained from the website (www.blagdon.org). Secondary education is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk) which has recently been awarded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and also benefits from a modern sports complex, and there are private schools at Bristol, Wells, Sidcot, Bath and Wraxall. Access to the motorway network is at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21) with an international airport at Lulsgate and mainline railway stations at Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Bristol.  

OUR VENDOR SAYS As soon as we set foot through the door ten years ago, we knew that this was the home for us. We have loved living on Ellick Road - hearing the lambs in neighbouring fields, watching the snowdrops and daffodils herald the changing seasons, and being able to step out of the back door and simply head off on a walk, or a run, or a cycle ride into the surrounding countryside has been magical. The air is clean, the location is peaceful, and at night there is minimal light pollution. We have really enjoyed being part of this small community. 

WE HAVE NOTICED A fantastic country cottage in an ever popular road with both Blagdon and Burrington Combe close by. The beauty of the spot is the rural aspect with real convenience and our vendors have done a wonderful job internally turning an already impressive living space into something rare on the market. This mixes both character and practicality and for a family it offers a huge amount of versatility. Offered with no chain!
