Full description

A detached period cottage located close to the centre of the village with surprising accommodation, large garden, orchard and 2 acre paddock directly behind the property.


DESCRIPTION 
Pooracre is a period village cottage which has remained in the same family for the last 100 years. Don't be fooled by the exterior front elevation! The cottage has been extended and offers great scope for further development (subject to planning consents). Over the years the property has been extended to the rear and benefits from hardwood double glazed windows to the front and gas fired central heating.

SITUATION 
The property is accessed from the A368 up a private drive which leads around to the rear of the house and beyond to the land. It is close to the village centre and opposite the village primary school. It is very unusual to find a property with land in the village centre in such a desirable Chew Valley village. Blagdon is located on the slopes of the Mendip Hills overlooking Blagdon Lake, famous for its trout fishing. The whole area is one of outstanding natural beauty and there are splendid views of the surrounding hills and open countryside.

ACCOMMODATION 
The accommodation is laid over two floors with staircases either end of the house leading to the first floor and a short staircase leading from the garden room into the studio/bedroom 4. The side (front) entrance is rarely used and the rear door into the garden room is the point of access. The garden room and studio are joined at the rear of the house and offer great scope for versatile uses. The kitchen is located at the rear of the property (south) and is a good space in galley style with units and dresser - there is a space at one end for a table. From the kitchen there are doors in to the sitting room and inner lobby. The sitting room defines the age of the property with a fine stone inglenook style fireplace inset with woodburning stove and beam over. There is a French door into the garden room and two hardwood double glazed windows to the front. Beside the fireplace is a secondary spiral staircase to the first floor. The main staircase rises from the inner lobby from...

OUTSIDE 
Approached up its own private drive to the side of the house and opening into a good parking and turning area - beside which is a substantially sized OUTBUILDING. The garden lies directly behind the house and does require some attention, however there are areas of extensive patio and a secret garden outside the studio. Beyond the parking area the land leads into an ORCHARD now cleared, and formerly a productive veg and fruit garden. There are various galvanised and timber buildings which need replacing. Beyond the 'Orchard' a gate leads into the field. A field of good pasture which gently slopes away from the house and commands superb views to the lake and beyond. There is also access into the field from Score Lane.
