DESCRIPTION Situated in the best lane in Winford is this fine example of a period residence. The Court is full of charm and character and is looking for its new custodian. Dating from 1593, this home has been beautifully restored and tastefully updated over the years to make the most of the history. Features include some beautiful period doors and floors, beams and fireplaces to a variety of staircases and stone windows. The accommodation is stylish and wonderfully presented, with a flow and layout which works particularly well. It is symmetrical and spacious boasting over 4000 square feet.

It comprises an entrance hall through the middle of the home with a dining room to one side and sitting room to the other. The sitting room is of a good size with a fireplace and a doorway leads into the study. The dining room has a beautiful Aga and bread oven as well as a hidden staircase leading to a bedroom above (the Lord of the Manor's private apartment), the kitchen is accessed from the dining room.

The entrance hall then leads on to the rear of the property, with a handy boot room and utility room. A staircase leads to the upper floors, comprising five double bedrooms in total, along with two dressing rooms, an en suite bathroom and family bathroom.

A gravelled driveway leads to a parking area belonging to The Court. The gardens wrap around the property and in total are just over 0.4 acre. They make the most of a pleasant view of the village Church tower, and there is the added benefit of a useful outbuilding. The grounds are mature and well landscaped, mainly laid to lawn with attractive flower and shrub borders and a pleasant patio area.

The location doesn't disappoint either, located along Chapel Lane in a private yet village centre location. In the heart of the community, in a secluded location with very convenient access to Bristol.
 

SITUATION The North Somerset village of Winford lies on the edge of the Chew Valley, south of the city of Bristol. Local facilities include pre-school and schools judged good and outstanding (Ofsted 2015/16), village shop/post office, bus service, pub and many locally-organised social activities. The village has recently been connected to fast broadband services. The area around is well known for its beauty, activities and attraction. The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes provide a host of activities whilst the nearby Mendips are popular and boast great walking, riding and unspoilt nature. Bristol is within easy access for commuters, where there are also private schools with transport from the Chew Valley. Rail services to London can be accessed from Yatton or from Bristol Temple Mead via local bus service or Long Ashton Park & Ride. 

DIRECTIONS Travelling into Winford from Bristol, turn left into Church Road just after the Prince of Waterloo. Follow this lane to the end, and bend round to the right over a small bridge. The Court is the gravelled driveway on the left after this.
