Full description

Old Manor Farm is ideally situated on the edge of open countryside, yet remains within striking distance of Bristol city centre, the M4 and M5 motorways and access to Bristol Parkway train station. The original farmhouse dates from the 17th Century with later 18th Century additions, and has over the last decade or so been sensitively modernised to provide an expanse of well-proportioned living accommodation, arranged over three floors and perfect for modern family living. The house truly encompasses “the great outdoors” and is adaptable for families of all sizes with plenty of space both inside and out.

Outside, electric gates provide access to an expanse of parking, with a detached garage and further storeroom. The grounds are fully enclosed, with a side lane (owned by the house) leading to a rear gate providing additional access to the paddock – an ideal size for a pony or a great space for children to play in and currently used to graze sheep.

Internally, the house is often accessed from the rear into a delightful garden room, with a flag stone floor and underfloor heating. This creates a fabulous party room opening out as it does to the south facing garden and with access to the kitchen, cloak room and fitted utility room. The “Chalon” fitted kitchen is a real feature of the house, with a dual aspect overlooking the garden and with glimpses from the side across to the Severn bridge. There is plenty of space for a breakfast table, and the kitchen island provides a great workspace. There is a four oven AGA (with a twin halogen hob for the summer months) and a walk-in fridge / larder.

Running along the original front elevation of the house are three delightful reception rooms each retaining many original features. The drawing room is a wonderful size, with a stripped wooden floor, open fireplace and a handsome marble fire surround. This leads into the dining room – perfect for more formal dinners and Christmas – which also boasts a fireplace and has original flagstone floor the floor. These flagstones follow-in from the entrance hall, with its handsome oak staircase – and situated opposite is the snug with a fitted wood burning stove and beamed ceiling. A delightful space to retreat to.

Arranged over the first floor are four double bedrooms, including the elegant master bedroom with a dual aspect and distant views across to Wales and the Severn Bridge. This has an en-suite bathroom and a light filled dual aspect. The three further bedrooms each have delightful views, with bedroom two and bedroom three having fitted wardrobes and cupboard space.

Arranged over the second floor is bedroom five (currently a great “bunk” room for sleepovers and guests) and the exceptional attic room / bedroom six. This has in the past served as an informal office space and could, subject to consent, be converted to provide further living accommodation.

Outside, the house affords just the right amount of space to families to enjoy whilst still being able to maintain. The garden is well tended with a deep paved dining terrace and BBQ area, mature rose beds and a decent lawn. This is inset with a heated swimming pool and pool house, providing changing facilities and housing the pool equipment. The pool has a secure, mechanically operated cover.

To the rear is a fenced paddock, currently used by a neighbouring farmer to graze sheep. It has independent access from the rear and is perfect for a pony or just a fun space for both children and adults alike to enjoy.

To the front is a deceptively deep garden with mature trees providing privacy and bordered by a handsome period stone wall, with a central pedestrian gate and pathway leading to the original wooden front door. An electric gate provides access to vehicles with hard-standing providing parking for numerous cars, as well as a detached garage, further store room and secure shed housing the oil tank.
