Full description

Elegant period living on the edge of this charming historic village with additional two bedroom coach house


Priestpool House is set on the edge of this popular South Gloucestershire village just a short drive from Junction 16 of the M5 and most conveniently placed for access to the main line rail station at Bristol Parkway providing a direct service to London Paddington. The popularity of the village stems largely from its retention of a busy local post office and store, a church, public house and primary school. More extensive services that include restaurants, banks and supermarkets are just a few minutes drive in the nearby town of Thornbury. There is a wonderful choice of quality schooling within both the state and independent sector that includes Tockington Manor Preparatory School, Marlwood Comprehensive School and first rate private schooling in nearby Bristol, including Clifton College, Badminton School and QEH to name just a few.


This most elegant Grade II Listed period home believed to date to circa 1860 and located on the edge of the popular village of Olveston perfectly placed for those requiring swift access to the motorway network. The home offers wonderfully balanced family accommodation with the benefit of an entirely self contained coach house in the grounds, converted to provide smart accommodation with potential to draw useful rental income (as is currently the case) or to provide independent living for a family member. Approached via a five bar gated driveway, the home sits most comfortably within its delightful ornamental gardens beautifully stocked with an extensive range of mature trees and shrubs. Both opposite the property and to the side are open wild flower meadows and pasture and the popular village stores, pubs and church in Olveston are just moments away.

The ground floor accommodation comprises a beautifully proportioned and double glazed Orangery overlooking the sheltered front gardens leading to a welcoming flagstone floor hallway with fine carved staircase and galleried landing. To either side of the hallway are two large reception rooms, the drawing room with 16 pane Georgian window allowing a good deal of light to flood into this comfortable informal room with substantial fireplace housing a wood burning stove. An archway with sliding doors opens to the marginally smaller withdrawing room with useful storage cupboards and TV cabinets built in to the corner and a glazed door opening to the rear garden. Set off the enclosed inner hallway is a most useful laundry room housing the combi oil fired central heating boiler with Belfast sink, further storage and space for drying clothes. The cloak store and boot room with quarry tiled flooring leads to a ground floor cloakroom. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a substantial multi fuelled cast iron burners set within the chimney breast with a generous run of base and wall units with marble work surfaces, Neff ceramic hob and matching stainless steel ovens. A very pleasant room for welcoming family and friends and for dining on a daily basis. The covered lean to opening to the rear garden that still houses the historic water pump creates an intriguing focal point within the room. At first floor level, there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom, the master bedroom being of an excellent size with dedicated en suite shower room. Many of the rooms enjoy exceptional rural views, the window on the large and rather special landing being an exceptional outlook stretching far across the garden and fields.

The pretty gardens are a special feature of the home divided into many intriguing, sheltered compartments or 'outdoor rooms'. Whether seeking large level lawns for playful children, productive fruit trees or shady areas for quiet contemplation, this is a garden that has it all!

Enjoying total independence, the brick built coach house with stylish contemporary interior offers very well appointed kitchen, separate reception room and two bedroom with bathroom. Subject to planning it may be possible for subsequent owners to sell on the coach house as a separate dwelling.

Adjacent to the coach house is a stable with tack room and the coach house has the benefit of its own private garden.
