DESCRIPTION Hidden away in a small village lane is The Hollies, a light, warm and welcoming four bedroom bungalow, within a few minutes walk of the local shop, pub, church, cafe and village hall. Originally built in the 1950s, it has been extended and renovated over the years. The current owner has added a substantial conservatory overlooking the rear garden, and tells us she would have extended the kitchen into this area making a generous kitchen/dining/family room if staying. The 21' sitting room is bright and airy, with two large picture windows overlooking the front garden, and french doors opening out onto a paved terrace to the side. Also on the ground floor, off the hall, are two double bedrooms, one overlooking the front garden and the other with french doors opening out onto raised decking. On a lovely sunny day you can throw the doors open and sit out on the decking with your early morning cup of tea and listen to the birds singing. These two bedrooms share a fully tiled, bright modern bathroom. Venture upstairs and you will find two further bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room. The area has been well thought out to provide extra storage where possible. The property is double glazed throughout and is warmed by gas central heating.

Outside, the property has fenced and walled gardens front and rear, providing an enclosed play area for children and animals. For those of you with green fingers there is ample opportunity to continue the work of the current owner, with shrubs, boarders and lawn at the back of the property and raised vegetable plot at the front. There is off street parking for a number of vehicles and a sizeable double garage. If you're a keen cyclist or enjoy walking there is no need to get in a car, just head off up the hill and you'll soon find yourself in the open countryside of the Mendips with views for miles. If you're keen on outdoor pursuits then there is also an outside hot tap to make life a little more comfortable on those cold muddy days!
 

DIRECTIONS Coming from the Bristol direction on the A38 turn left, after the petrol station, signed for Shipham. Continue into the village past the school and take the next left, and keep left continuing up Hollow Road. Take the second right into Top Road. Allens Lane is the next on your right and the driveway and garage for the property is on the corner. You can park on the drive.  

SITUATION Shipham is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a highly sought after village, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by both primary and middle schools and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with many bridleways and footpaths, including the West Mendip Way which crosses the parish providing ready access to the hills and Mendip plateau, where there are extensive views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Brecon Beacons beyond. 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 Academy 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. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS From the outside I almost did not bother viewing! The house is a tardis with easy ground floor living for me but large enough to accommodate family and lodgers. For garden lovers the veg plot is very productive and it's always good to chat to neighbours over the wall. The set up of houses ensures you know everyone and yet have your own privacy. I have the best neighbours ever. I will be very sad to leave them. 

WE HAVE NOTICED For anyone wanting a central village location without compromising on parking, and offering accommodation for a growing family, a downsizing retired couple, or perhaps a single person wanting space for guest or an expanding hobby, then look no further than The Hollies.
