DESCRIPTION Stratford Cottage offers some of the best views within the whole of the Chew Valley whilst still being located perfectly to make the most of both village life and access to Bristol, Bath & Wells. Not only do the views at this property make it unique, the quirky 'upside down' layout make the cottage a total one off! This layout helps to create the perfect platform to enjoy the aforementioned breathtaking views to the full.

The accommodation at Stratford Cottage is both well maintained & spacious throughout. The ground floor comprises four bedrooms, the first three of which are certainly doubles and are serviced by a modern family bathroom. The downstairs also boasts a further single room, which could perhaps be used as a study if a new owner desired. Upstairs is where the views really begin to come into play! A large sitting room has the benefit of sliding doors to a magnificent terrace perfect for enjoying the outlook beyond. Further to this, the upstairs offers a good sized dining room and modern kitchen.

To the rear of the cottage there is a well sized private garden. Predominantly laid to lawn, the garden is manageable but still offers space for raised beds, a pond with trickling water feature, several seating areas and a summer house, all of which again look out over the fields beyond. The property is completed to the side with a wooden framed parking barn providing off street parking for at least two vehicles.

We have noticed... This really is a rare opportunity for any buyer to find such a quirky home that hasn't been to the market for 28 years! The accommodation is versatile, flexible & spacious and with views like this it will certainly fit the bill for all demographics!

Our vendor says... The location here has been perfect for us, the pub next door is fantastic & we have been to lucky to have such fantastic neighbours. The south facing garden generates so much light upstairs and we love watching the landscape change over the seasons as they come and go.
