Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in the beautiful and picturesque village of Frenchay, sits this stunningly attractive and truly unique architecturally designed property. Named after the Serbian Spruce trees that the vendors planted on the completion of the building in 1969, Spruce House has been a loving family home for almost fifty years. With its prominent location sitting at the junction of Malmains Drive and Homestead Gardens, Spruce House can't be missed. With its long sloping roof framed by the lawned gardens, block paved drive, spruce trees, and recently awarded Voluntary Village Green status to the land adjoining the beautifully presented rear garden, the Messrs Kendall Kingscott designed home really captures your imagination.

Built using locally sourced natural stone with elm wood panels gives this property a distinctly European feel, and would not be amiss on a mountain side in the Alps. With the property being extended in1980, Spruce House has all the space a modern family or professional would be looking for, whilst lending itself to a variety of extension opportunities in the future. Internally the splendid entrance hall provides a welcoming meeting point with the timber stairwell adding texture to the entrance. All rooms lead from the entrance hall with three reception rooms offering a blend of formal and informal spaces including two front facing living rooms and lounge diner overlooking the gardens.

The kitchen diner with large utility, cloak and boiler rooms with side access to the double garage and garden makes for a fantastic space whether for a busy family or those wanting to catch up with friends. A downstairs study and separate cloaks cupboard completes the ground floor footprint.

To the first floor can be found four bedrooms including two recently replaced bathrooms, consisting of one ensuite and a family bathroom, with 3 of the bedrooms offering space for double beds, and all including built in cupboards. A large eaves storage space is accessed from the landing with its angled windows to the front.

The mature private gardens can only be described as peacefully striking, offering an array of shrub, flower and tree borders the extensive south-facing rear gardens have been laid to manicured lawns and patio areas which are perfect for entertaining and enjoying the long sunny days. A log cabin to the rear of the garden is the perfect space for storage, hobbies or home office. The rear gardens also benefit from backing on to the recently registered Village Green and this, together with the densly planted copse of mature trees, provides splendid protection from the imminent redevelopment of the former hospital site.

Frenchay is conveniently located to the M32 and M4 Motorways, with Bristol Parkway Station only a short distance away providing regular rail services to London Paddington. The area offers fantastic walks through common and open lands and down towards Frome Valley walkway and river. The village benefits from having a Primary School and easy access to some excellent schools in Bristol .
