DESCRIPTION A charming and substantial family house that occupies a wonderful elevated position in Blagdon enjoying breath-taking, uninterrupted panoramic views over the rolling North Somerset countryside and magnificent Blagdon Lake.

Spring Cottage is a handsome detached stone property that is situated in an outstanding edge of village position. The impressive proportions of the property are not immediately obvious from the quintessentially chocolate box facade however this deceptive home is not only generous in scale but has also been skilfully arranged to accommodate potential co-habiting if desired.

The accommodation in brief comprises as many as five reception rooms with varying uses including large drawing room, superb conservatory/summer room, snug, study/library and two exceptional kitchen/breakfast rooms. On the first floor you will find five bedrooms which are complemented by two wonderful bathrooms along with a shower room and bathroom on the ground floor.

Externally the property sits in a spectacular position which enjoys the most breathtaking views over nearby Blagdon Lake. A large level terrace and garden which can be accessed via bi-folding doors from the kitchen diner and French doors from the conservatory provides the perfect vantage point from which to sit and enjoy the view of fly fishermen on the lake and take in the exceptional countryside scenery which stretches for miles and miles. Several further carefully landscaped gardens surround the house and give many differing aspects over the view including a level sun terrace to the rear and side of the house that has stone steps rising to a further lawned area of the garden which features several mature fruit trees. The gardens which enjoy a mainly south and west aspect are enclosed by picket fences, original stone walls and mature hedgerows making it a secure and child friendly space to enjoy.

To the front of the house there is a generous parking area which can comfortably accommodate a number of vehicles along with an area housing a large summer house/workshop that could be replaced by a double garage subject to necessary permissions.

Without question Spring Cottage could be deemed a fairly deceptive description for this magnificent family home. Although the property clearly displays an abundance of original period features that dates back to its original construction in the 1880's the sympathetic and extensive renovations to the property over many years have now created what could be better described as a lifestyle home, that has the versatility and flexibility that is so often difficult to find.

 

DIRECTIONS Travelling through Blagdon on the A368 towards Bath, go past 'The Mead' and up the slight hill. Go past the primary school on the right and turn left into Church Street. Follow that road, travelling past The New Inn. The property is the last house on the 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.  

WE HAVE NOTICED If peace, tranquillity and a sense of privacy is what you desire then look no further than Spring Cottage. Although the house is not blessed with acres of paddocks and formal gardens what it does have in return is a true sense of openness and space with the fields to the side and rear preserving the incredible view. The careful thought and planning that has gone into increasing the size of the house has been done in such a way that the property is now perfectly suited for dual occupation, an increasingly common request. Photographs can in no way represent the outstanding beauty of the situation that Spring Cottage enjoys and it is truly a house I find difficult to leave without casting my eyes out over the panorama for one final view.
