Full description

DESCRIPTION Built, our vendors believe, in the 1960's, Rowan is set in a good size mature garden with views towards the Mendip Hills.

The lounge, master bedroom and 25ft garden room all take full advantage of the glorious southerly aspect. In addition there is a further double bedroom, kitchen, dining room, shower room, separate W/C, and large utility area.

The property, although comfortable and very liveable, would benefit from updating in some areas and in fact has great potential (subject to planning) to be extended to create a family home.

The mature and well stocked garden has been the pride and joy of the present owner and includes a raised pond, summer house and greenhouse. In addition there is also off road car parking, garage and many outside storage sheds/workshops areas.

SITUATION Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington (www.wringtonsomerset.org.uk) is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset. Picturesque with a lengthy and interesting history, it benefits from facilities usually reserved for a larger town, including two pubs (one with an excellent restaurant), church and a chapel, a primary school (awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted), post office, public transport, petrol station, pharmacy, satellite doctor's surgery, dentist, coffee shop, grocery shop off licence/convenience shop and even two florist/gift shops (one in the village centre and one on the outskirts). Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk), also recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (with transport for local children provided daily), and which also benefits from a modern sports complex open to the general public. Further schools, both state and private, are at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and the Chew Valley. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles. The village itself is within commuting distance of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway station at Yatton. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS The bungalow has been in the family for over 40 years. The views, garden and position are lovely and you feel totally private, yet are within walking distance of the village amenities. 

WE HAVE NOTICED Ropers Lane is always popular within the village and bungalows here are a rare find. This lovely property is set in a quiet non estate position overlooking the Mendip Hills and has been much loved by the current vendors. Although it could do with some modernisation is has lots of potential and the garden room is really quite lovely.
