DESCRIPTION Waverley is a spacious and well presented detached family home that sits on the lower slopes of the Mendips and takes full advantage of its elevated position with glorious views from all directions. The internal specification and thoughtful design have created a wonderful and flexible property perfectly suited for family life. The accommodation briefly comprises a stunning 'L' shaped living room with two square bay windows to the front elevation and French doors leading to garden. The living room offers exceptional natural light from its dual aspects and features a recessed fireplace with woodburner and Bath stone mantel and surround. An open archway flows effortlessly into a chic dining room with the kitchen beyond. This stylish and contemporary eating area enjoys a fabulous polished 'Travertine' floor which continues into the kitchen which is simply a piece of modern art, the sleek high gloss kitchen units are topped with a seemingly endless 'Corian' countertop complete with high quality 'Neff` appliances and ceramic hob. French doors lead to the outside terrace and a further door leads to a useful utility space and the huge double garage. The ground floor accommodation also features a further reception/music room to the front elevation, a useful office/study and a lavish and spacious bathroom suite.

On the first floor a large and welcoming landing gives access to all the rooms. There are four double sized bedrooms with a stunning master suite which benefits from a fabulous south aspect and en-suite bathroom with a stylish white suite and separate shower cubicle with modern rain fall shower. A second guest suite features a good range of fitted wardrobes and shower room with a massage shower cubicle with pressurised body jets.

Two further double bedrooms are both complemented by fitted wardrobes with the larger also benefitting from an outstanding south facing balcony which affords breathtaking views over the paddocks and stunning countryside beyond. Completing the first floor accommodation is a further shower room and several useful storage cupboards and airing cupboard.

An exceptional feature of the property are the well maintained gardens which flank the property on all sides, with a large area of southwest facing lawn to the front enclosed by a picket fence and mature hedgerow, several juvenile fruit trees dot the front garden. A small stone terrace hugs the house and provides a lovely seating area to overlook the garden. To the side of the house, stone terraces rise to the paddock beyond and feature an abundance of well planted flowers and bushes, above the stone terrace is a pretty flower meadow beneath two mature Fir trees. There are further raised flower beds and rockeries to the side of the house with a footpath providing access to the rear of the garage.

At the end of the garden a five bar gate provides access to two side by side paddocks of approaching an acre each with a double stable block and tack area. The beautiful setting of the gently sloping paddocks are an absolute joy, with breathtaking panoramic views over stunning scenery. The top of the paddocks provide a perfect vantage point to take in the setting sun on a late summer's evening with a vista that can see as far as the Welsh Mountains on a clear day… absolute bliss!
 

DIRECTIONS Travelling into Shipham from the Rowberrow direction, proceed into The Square and on past Hansfords and The Penscot. Continue straight on up Cuck Hill past Templars Way, the drive for Daneswood care home can be found on your left hand side and Waverley shares the drive and can be found a little way up on the right. 

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. 

WE HAVE NOTICED Waverley is a beautiful family home and a real credit to its current owners. The sleek design and contemporary decor complement the light and airy interior with practically every window in the house offering a glimpse of stunning rural scenery. The adjoining paddocks allow the rare opportunity to stable your own horses on your doorstep and take full advantage of the panoramic views over rolling countryside towards the Bristol Channel and the Brecon Beacons beyond. Simply stunning.
