Tenure: Freehold

This delightful three bedroom cottage has a real charm about it with the original property dating back to the 1700's. It is located in the centre of the popular conservation village of Iron Acton. The cottage is elevated and set back from the street, access is via a small lane next to the property.

The current vendors have carefully extended the original layout to enhance everyday living, whilst maintaining that period feel you get with a cottage.

On the ground floor, accommodation includes entrance porch leading into a spacious lounge/diner equipped with a wood burning stove. Proceeding up two steps is a light and airy kitchen/ family area. The kitchen benefits from a Rangemaster cooker, integrated dishwasher and fridge. The family area has bifold doors and a roof lantern with mechanical ventilation. Off this room is a WC and utility room. The utility has a Belfast sink, multiple storage cupboards and accommodates space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. There is a separate cupboard for the heating system (heating controls and water tank). The utility also provides access to a small cellar via a trapdoor and stairs allowing a further storage facility.

Heading upstairs, the master bedroom is directly opposite the stairs with built in hanging cupboard storage. The second bedroom can accommodate a double bed, it has a large, integrated storage cupboard, there is also a loft hatch with ladder. The loft is 50% boarded out to allow a significant storage area. The third bedroom and good sized family bathroom are situated at the rear of the property and have a south facing aspect.

Outside of the cottage is an off road parking area with a storage shed (lighting and sockets installed). Leading up to the property you are welcomed along with a paved path, surrounded by flower beds and shrubbery. To the rear of the property are a levelled stone slab patio and BBQ area which is a real sun trap. Steps lead up to a grassed area with a summer house (lighting and sockets installed), small tool shed and well. The summerhouse has been used as an extra bedroom for guests or could be used as a garden office. The front and rear of the property have sensor lighting installed along with external electric socket points.

The current vendors have made a significant investment into thermal efficiencies whilst retaining the period cottage feel, secondary glazing on all front lead light windows, an air source heat pump, loft and ceiling insulation, underfloor heating in kitchen/family room, all other rooms benefiting from new radiators.
The EPC does not truly reflect these improvements as it's based on the original part of the cottage. The average annual electricity bill (including all heating and hot water) is approx £1,100.

Iron Acton benefits from a number of amenities: Parish Meadows with children's play area and 2 tennis courts. There are two popular village pubs. Iron Acton Church of England Primary School is located directly just down the road from the cottage. There are several local secondary schools close by in neighbouring villages/ towns.

The transport links are very good, Yate train station is 5-10 minutes, Bristol Parkway train station is 10-15 minutes from the property. Bristol City Centre is a 20-minute drive, you can also get to Bath within approx 30 minutes. The property is within easy reach of a number of motorways: M48, M4, M5.
