Tenure: Freehold

'Treave' is an IMAGINATIVELY EXTENDED cottage, now benefitting from an ARCHITECT DESIGNED double height addition, with VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION situated in APPROX. TWO ACRES OF GROUNDS in a SEMI-RURAL POSITION on the fringe of this HIGHLY DESIRABLE NORTH SOMERSET VILLAGE.

Don't judge a book by its cover! It would be easy to overlook this property based on its first impressions, set slightly off a main road and attached to the rear of commercial premises - but what a mistake that would be! Once the access has been negotiated and you are safely ensconced within the generous grounds of 'Treave' you are totally oblivious to what is around you and entirely captivated by both the uniqueness of the building and the totally unexpected nature of the park-like gardens which surround it.
Internally, the original period cottage has been enhanced by an architect designed extension, built some twenty years ago, and which has a real 'wow' factor, with double height ceilings and a galleried snug and study which overlooks the sitting room and is accessed via a wrought iron and timber spiral staircase. In addition to a separate dining room and kitchen, the property offers a utility room open plan to a large rear hall/storage area with potential for future reconfiguration. In deed the layout of the accommodation is versatile throughout, with two ground floor double bedrooms and two first floor bedrooms, offering the potential to create more reception space and less bedrooms if desired. In addition to a re-fitted family bathroom, the main bedroom also offers a compact and bijou en suite shower room. Whilst most of the house is offered in good order, the property is a work in progress and some areas would benefit from an element of updating and modernisation.
Externally though, the property really comes into its own. For anyone seeking to create 'the good life' there is land aplenty for the cultivation of vegetables and fruit trees, perhaps to plant a small orchard, and also to keep livestock.
And, competitively priced at under £500,000 to reflect the positioning and the nature of the arrangement with the neighbours, this is a rare opportunity indeed, so don't delay - call us today to view!
