DESCRIPTION A superb detached property occupying an outstanding elevated position on the outskirts of Shipham enjoying spectacular panoramic views over rolling countryside, towards the Severn Estuary with generous gardens and pony paddock.

Mount Lavinia is situated on Templars Way, a popular and well regarded private road which rises towards the Mendip Hills on the outskirts of the popular village of Shipham. Occupying a generous plot this extended four bedroom detached bungalow takes full advantage of its commanding position with exceptional views from practically every room.

Internally the property enjoys a wonderful dual aspect living room with fabulous cast iron wood burner and box bay windows, complete with window seats which provide the perfect position from which to take in the superb outlook. A timber beam archway from the entrance hall provides access to a spacious dining room which also enjoys fabulous views. A large farmhouse style kitchen is positioned towards the rear of the property with space for a breakfast table and is fitted with a generous amount of wall and base units and includes a range cooker inset into the chimney breast. The property benefits from three bedrooms within the original part of the building all of which are good sized doubles and then a further double bedroom and bathroom in the extended wing. Within the new section there is a fabulous reception/sun lounge with bi-fold doors giving access to a wonderful raised decked area which is perfect for al-fresco dining and watching the distant sunsets towards the Severn Estuary and Welsh Coast. The extended section or the house could easily provide annexe accommodation for potential co-habiting. A further contemporary styled family bathroom and useful utility room complete the internal rooms.

Externally Mount Lavinia is approached via a well maintained driveway off Templars way which splits and provides ample parking for several vehicles to the top section and then drops down to a single garage and further parking towards the bottom of the garden. Front lawn is accessed via a path from the orchard or by the driveway from outside of the house to a large level garden, which features an ornamental pond and an original well with mature fruits trees and well planted borders to either side. A further set of steps lead down to a large rough grassed area which has previously been used to grow home produce but also features a single stable block and could easily provide a small managé. In the corner of the rough grassed area a five bar gate provides access to an enclosed paddock of approaching an acre.

We have noticed ... Mount Lavinia is a truly magnificent property with some of the best panoramic views I have encountered for a long time. The privacy that can be enjoyed from the house and grounds are superb and the scope that it has for further development (subject to the necessary consents), both to the house but also to the grounds make it a hugely exciting prospect for those looking for a retreat with room to grow. 

DIRECTIONS Travelling into Shipham from the Rowberrow direction, proceed into The Square and on past Hansfords and The Penscot. Continue straight on up Cuck Hill, Templars Way can be found on your left hand side, and Mount Lavinia can be found a little way up on your left hand side two drives up from the Main Road. 

SITUATION Shipham is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a highly sought after village, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by both primary and middle schools and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with many bridleways and footpaths, including the West Mendip Way which crosses the parish providing ready access to the hills and Mendip plateau, where there are extensive views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Brecon Beacons beyond. Indeed, it is very well positioned for local transport links and the M5 motorway which is accessible via junction 20 at Clevedon, junction 21 at St Georges and junction 22 at Edithmead. Village facilities are available, including butcher/stores, garage, public house, hotel and further shopping facilities at nearby Winscombe and Cheddar. The new village hall (with its stage, sports hall, function rooms and kitchen) is a popular centre for a broad range of community events and activities for all ages. Private sector schooling is close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach, as are Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) is nearby and for sports and recreational amenities, Churchill Academy is a drive away. The surrounding area is excellent riding country and is sure to appeal to equestrian enthusiasts and walkers. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to the mainline railway station at Yatton.
