Long Acre is situated on the periphery of Chew Magna, which is a popular Somerset village in the Chew Valley close to the Mendips. Amenities within the village include a well-stocked supermarket, master butcher, coffee shop, travel agent, post office and a bank. There are also four public houses nearby, one of which (The Pony and Trap) has been awarded a Michelin star.

The neighbouring village of Chew Stoke boasts a medical practice, nursery, a garage with shop and an Indian restaurant.

The property falls within the catchment area for the village school and the nearby Chew Valley School, both of which are highly regarded. There are also a number of independent schools within the area, including; Wells Cathedral School, Clifton College and King Edwards to name but a few.

The village’s situation in the Chew Valley offers commuters excellent access to the regional Centre of Bristol which is 8 miles to the north and the Heritage City of Bath which is 15 miles to the east. The Cathedral City of Wells, which offers further facilities, is 14 miles to the south.

The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. A visit to Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake is highly recommended, as this modern tearoom/fish restaurant is owned by the same family as The Pony and Trap. The Mendip hills, well known for their limestone features, provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.

High speed rail services to London Paddington are available from Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa whilst Bristol International Airport is just a few miles away.

The House

Long Acre was designed and built for our clients in 1997. The house was finished to a high standard throughout and has been very well maintained during our client’s tenure. One of the key features of the property is the location, privacy and the views.

The house is situated on the edge of the village, the long gated driveway and elevated position ensures that the house is barely visible from the road and the superb garden provides seclusion as well as superb views.

The accommodation throughout the house is bright and airy with both of the principal reception rooms arranged to benefit from the views over the garden at the front and beyond to the south over the neighbouring countryside.

Upon arrival at the property a pair of wrought iron gates open to the extensive gravelled driveway which leads past the front garden and culminates at the garage and parking area in front of the house.  

The front door of the property opens to the reception hall, once in the reception hall doors lead to the various rooms on the ground floor and a flight of stairs rise to the first floor.

A doorway from the reception hall leads through to the sitting room. This is a truly remarkable room, measuring in excess of 28ft x 24ft it truly offers a sense of space and openness. At one end of the room 2 sets of patio doors open to the front terrace and garden beyond, there is also a feature gas fire and additional windows to the side and the rear allowing for plenty of natural light to illuminate the room. A pair of glazed doors open from the sitting room tom the dining room, again with a set of patio doors to the front terrace and the garden beyond.

Next to the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and floor units, an electric hob, a double oven with grill, a microwave and a dishwasher.

Also on the ground floor is the utility room, a cloakroom/shower room and an internal door leads into the garage. If required the garage could be converted to create additional accommodation, including a bedroom/annexe for a dependent relative.

The staircase from the reception hall leads to the first floor. At the top of the stairs is the master bedroom, with an extensive array of fitted furniture, a window overlooking the rear garden and an en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted furniture on the first floor as well as the family bathroom.


The property is approached via the long gravel drive. This leads into a gravel parking/turning area and the garage. The gardens to the front and the rear are a true credit to the owners and have to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The font garden is laid to lawn with established trees and an attractive hedgerow. The rear garden is again laid to lawn with floral beds, mature trees and grasses. At the very top of the garden is the ‘picnic area’ a truly unique place to enjoy the vista and entertain family and friends. In total the grounds and garden amount to just over 1 acre.
