Add to the mix large mature gardens of over 1/3 acre, lovely rural views at the rear and Sherwood is a house that should definitely be on your viewing list.

The property is set back from the road with a beautifully landscaped front garden creating an effective and attractive barrier and also providing ample parking and turning space and with additional gated side parking suitable for a motorhome. There is also a single garage. The exterior of the property is most attractive, with stone mullion windows and Draycott stone bays adding to the character. The ground floor includes a large lounge with open fire, dining room, good sized well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and utility. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with an en suite shower, three further bedrooms (two double and one single) and a family bathroom.

To the side is a good sized annexe on two floors which comprises two double bedrooms, a lounge/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and en suite shower room. Both dwellings have independent gas fired central heating and double glazing. The garden is a very good size, plenty big enough for family life and with glorious rural views at the rear. Schools, both primary and secondary, are within a walk, as are four pubs! EPC rating D.
 

DIRECTIONS Travelling south on the A38 from Churchill traffic lights, Sherwood is on the left hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale board. 

SITUATION Churchill is a popular commuter village situated in the beautiful North Somerset countryside, which offers a range of village facilities which include a shop, pubs, churches, modern sports centre with swimming pool, and primary school (www.churchill-pri.n-somerset.sch.uk). Secondary schooling, both state and private, is well catered for with the ever popular Churchill Academy & Sixth Form (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk) on the doorstep which has recently been awarded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and also benefits from a modern sports complex, and private schools at Bristol, Wells, Sidcot, Bath and Wraxall. Churchill is favoured by the commuter, being convenient for the cities of Bristol, Bath and Wells and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, and there is access to the M5 at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway link at Yatton and Weston-super-Mare. The countryside around is well known for its beauty, with many country pursuits available including; walking, hunting, caving, dry-skiing, sailing and fishing, and for the lover of equestrian arts, Churchill is very well served. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS We love the wonderful views of the Mendip countryside & the back garden is ideal for kids & dogs! Our rear patio is brilliant for eating outside in summer and the garden is great for bird watching. It's a very light and spacious house - every room has light all year round, and it feels warm in the winter, yet stays cool in the summer! 

WE HAVE NOTICED We know this delightful house very well; it was Debbie's family home in the 1960's. Since then it has been much improved and extended. The road is less of an issue than you would think, with expert planning and landscaping creating an effective screen. This is a great house of individual character in a lovely non estate location and is literally two homes in one!
