DESCRIPTION Chew Valley's centre of attention! Majestically standing in its elevated position, this detached residence oversees the valley and is a renowned 'guiding star' for locals ... wherever you are in the Valley, look towards Bristol and you will see the farmhouse, even from miles away.

It's a very aesthetic house, perfectly balanced with a central traditional Doric porch and Tuscan columns, along with more Georgian features including 8 sash windows, monumental chimneys and a hipped roof over the garage. Local rumours suggest that the residence is in fact pre Georgian, with features such as stone mullions appear to back this up.

The layout inside is very conventional with spacious accommodation arranged over four floors, with various mezzanine levels within that. The accommodation is elegant and grand, with high ceilings between 9 and 10 ft in some rooms. The cellar has been converted by the current owner to create a family room. There are three further reception rooms, in the form of a drawing room, sitting room and orangery which makes the most of the views. The kitchen/breakfast room is a generous size with an Aga and there is a cloakroom on the entry level. The roomy entrance hall leads to the staircase, providing access to the aforementioned family room downstairs and drawing room upstairs. There are up to seven bedrooms on the top two (and a half) floors, along with a shower room, en suite bathroom and family bathroom.

In addition, storage isn't hard to come by ... with two storage rooms on the ground level, a roomy utility room and a garage attached to one side of the house.

There is ample off street parking and a large level lawn to the front, all private and with an open aspect to each side with electric wrought iron gates adding to the exclusiveness.

The location is rural, but not isolated, in an elevated position on the Northern Chew Valley hills benefitting from the most stunning views of the valley and lake. Surrounded by open fields and countryside, Bristol and Chew Magna are each within a short drive.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY to acquire one of the areas most popular homes. VIEWING ESSENTIAL. 

SITUATION The hamlet of Northwick is found between the villages of Dundry and Chew Magna. Chew Magna was voted in 2011 top out of the twelve best villages in the UK in a survey featured in the Sunday Times.

The picturesque countryside of the Mendips and the beautiful Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are no more than a few miles away, and to the east is the Roman City of Bath, about a 30 minute drive away. The excellent local amenities include nearby schools, four pubs, bank, a supermarket, nursery and an area of shops including a post office and cafe.
