A large family home in stunning, mature wooded grounds
A prestigious and sought after road, high up on a ridge and surrounded by dense woodland with bridle paths and footpaths criss crossing. Cadbury Camp Lane is home to some of the most prestigious family homes within the regions and is highly prized due to its country tag, and yet provides superb links to many amenities. Within proximity there are golf courses, leisure clubs and various mountain bike trails. Schools close by include the Downs School at Wraxall as well as Clifton College and Bristol Grammar in Clifton which is approximately 7 miles distant. Clifton Village offers many bars, boutiques and restaurants and nearby Portishead, a Waitrose. For travel, the M5 motorway network is circa 4 miles distant serving the South West and Midlands and linking to the M4 South Wales and London. Bristol International Airport is circa 9 miles with an extensive schedule of flights to many European and some long haul destinations.
Located in one of the region's most favoured and prestigious residential locations, Woodsmoke occupies an exceptionally generous, mature plot approaching three acres that includes wonderfully picturesque private woodland in addition to the beautifully tended, ornamental gardens.
Approached via a five bar timber gate with a large driveway sweeping to the front of the house and to the double garage that sits at lower level, this is a home with will appeal to those seeking swift and convenient access to Bristol city centre and the motorway network coupled with the privacy and security afforded by living in such a discreet and well established private road.
Built in 1963, this exceptionally versatile family home has split level accommodation designed to make the most of the gently sloping grounds, with bedroom accommodation on both the first floor and the rear garden level. Woodsmoke has been enjoyed and regularly updated by the current owners, but as often happens the next owner will see this as an opportunity to put their own stamp on the property and invest in this exceptional location. Two gentle steps lead to the entrance hallway with two cloaks/boot storage areas - one immediately adjacent to the front door and a further one at the far end. Clearly in designing this home, the original architect was keen to capture the fine rear views across the grounds and the large hallway windows are a perfect vantage point to enjoy this outlook with views of Mendip hills beyond. Dealing first with the principal reception rooms, the wide and bright drawing room with tiled fireplace is located directly off the hallway leading in to the formal dining room. To the eastern end of the property an inner hallway with steps to the garden level also benefits from a double glazed doorway to the front driveway and alongside is a laundry/utility room. There is also a cloakroom at this level and to the rear a large triple aspect kitchen which is well fitted with an extensive range of storage units and built in AEG twin oven and matching ceramic hob. Double doors open to a lovely raised terrace (also accessed off the Dining Room) perfect for morning coffee and al fresco dining. A separate staircase leads down from the inner hall providing access to a double bedroom with en suite shower room, a generous glazed conservatory sitting beneath the terrace and a useful store room currently housing a freezer and dishwasher. It is worth noting that this whole area could easily be adapted to become a self contained annexe, with the benefit of direct access doorway to the front of the property providing independence for those that seek it. There is a doorway directly into the double garage allowing the owners to drive straight into the home and accessing without the need to step outside. Completing the first floor, a lovely double bedroom with built in wardrobes features a walk-on balcony enjoying wonderful views across the garden, a second bedroom currently used as a study and a modern family bathroom with contemporary white suite, vanity units, concealed cistern and large shower bath. The bright, well lit staircase to the garden level opens to a quiet, family room with wood burning stove (available by separate negotiation) and double, sliding patio doors to the rear terrace. Two further bedrooms and a second bathroom complete the accommodation. It is worth noting that this is a home that features extensive storage throughout and the majority of the rooms have either double or secondary glazing.
Screened to the front by a mixture of stone walling , privet hedge and timber fencing, the property sits behind a predominantly level lawned garden interspersed with tall Pines, Beech trees and Sycamore. A lovely bluebell wood running the length of the boundary (both to side and rear) provides shelter and privacy and the lawns fall away to the rear past beautiful well stocked shrub and flower border s. The gardens include a naturalised wildflower and grass 'meadow' with a small fruit orchard at the rear.
These exceptional mature gardens are a rarity indeed and the perfect heaven for wildlife and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Neatly hidden to the side of the property is a well screened composting and log store area also housing the oil tank provide fuel for the central heating system. The patio terrace at garden level is bordered by colourful well planted beds and it is a delightfully sheltered spot and the most wonderful suntrap.
Acreage: 2.96 Acres
