Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a PRIVATE ROAD, this property offers FANTASTIC POTENTIAL for MODERNISATION and offers PEACE AND SECLUSION along with LOVELY VIEWS from the upstairs room.

A rarely available opportunity to purchase a detached property in a stunning location in need of a complete programme of upgrading and modernisation but which, when completed, would offer a stunning, retirement or even family sized home. The accommodation offers generously proportioned rooms and additionally is set in a lovely plot with countryside all around, perfect for walkers and perfect for country lovers. Additionally, the previous owner was clearly a model railway enthusiast, so if anybody shares his passion, they will be delighted to see that the garden still houses his model railway track although this would need to be repaired in places. The property is offered with no onward chain complications and an early viewing is thoroughly recommended.

Sandford lies south west of Bristol, between Churchill and Winscombe. The village has a general store, providing most daily needs, church, pub, village hall/community centre and a primary school, which was given an 'outstanding' rating by OFSTED in 2013. Shops, banks, doctors, dentists, vets, opticians, library, etc. are in Winscombe, about two miles distant. There is a primary school in the village and the senior school is Churchill Academy and Sixth Form in the neighbouring village of Churchill. The area provides many facilities, including sports centres in Churchill, Cheddar and near Weston-super-Mare, dry ski slope in Churchill, lakes for fishing and sailing, bridleways and footpaths, some leading on to the Mendip Hills, golf courses and riding stables. The nearest M5 junctions are No.21 outside Weston-super-Mare and No.22 outside Burnham-on-Sea. There are two bus services which come through Sandford, one running between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare, the other between Wells and Weston-super-Mare - both services go to Winscombe. Independent schools within daily commuting distance include Sidcot School, Wells Cathedral School, Millfield and a choice in Bristol.
