Description

This elegant and beautifully refurbished home is part of the prestigious Grade II Listed Barrow Court Estate, with origins that date back to the 13th century. Once the site of a Benedictine Nunnery, the property was transformed at the end of the 19th century into a private Victorian Estate, and more latterly in the 1970's into 18 individually owned properties. Much of the appeal of Barrow Court lies in its stunning, beautifully maintained grounds that adjoin the wonderful open countryside - a tranquil, rural oasis only 3.5 miles from Bristol Airport, and 6.5 miles from Bristol City Centre. It is easy to understand why the current owners have so enjoyed living in such a special environment with much of the appeal for them lying in the unique combination of peaceful and private rural living coupled with the security of being part of a small and friendly community. Worthy of special mention is the 'secret' garden, tucked adjacent to the glorious open estate, within which is a magical enclosed garden room which has been used on countless occasions for hosting private dinner parties - even the occasional sleep over!

Upon purchasing this property in 2010, the current owners completely remodelled and refurbished the interior creating a dramatic transformation from a rather dull and uninspiring layout to an exceptional residence, opening up spaces where possible to maximise natural light, creating high vaulted ceilings, decorating in tasteful, period colours and vastly improving the property's eco credentials by laying new insulated floors and walls.

With entrances from both front and rear courtyards, on the ground floor there is a welcoming and informal Kitchen /Breakfast room fitted with bespoke units, a Belfast sink set into a granite work surface, Rangemaster professional stove with five burner induction hob and twin ovens, central island unit with breakfast bar, window with cushion beach seating with storage units beneath and tall wine rack. Notable features include the rustic exposed brick walling, beams and trusses with triple conservation roof lights and under floor central heating that runs directly off the oil fired central heating system. Set off the kitchen is a most useful study area with windows to the central flagstone courtyard. Within the dedicated dining room is a useful under stair storage area with space for a tall freezer with shelved area above and ample space for coats, shoes and ancillary cleaning equipment. The dining room is a lovely room featuring an oak hatch, high ceilings and mullion windows commanding fine views across the central quad and the wooded hillside beyond. Adjacent to the formal entrance hallway is a cloakroom. The central hallway is a fine feature of the home, set over three easy levels with space for book shelves and with a cupboard housing the oil fired central heating boiler with further storage below. There is a very smart drawing room with stone fireplace, wood burning stove and alcove dresser. At ground floor level, is a large bedroom suite with superb en suite shower room. The first floor landing has a seating area overlooking the Barrow Court Estate, stripped floorboards leading to two equally sized double bedrooms and a central bathroom with a Jacuzzi style bath, shower over, WC and hand built vanity unit that runs the full width of one wall with marble work surface and splash back. There are two dedicated parking spaces with further visitors car parking and access to the communal tennis court.

A home of wonderful character and charm perfect for those seeking manageable but well proportioned accommodation within a prestigious and peaceful location.
