DESCRIPTION This impressive Victorian detached house has almost 4,000 sq ft of accommodation which has been extended and lovingly refurbished by the current owners to an extremely high standard, including underfloor heating throughout, whilst retaining many of the original period features. Approached from the long driveway, this wonderful family home has, in the main house, a fabulous huge reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, a light and spacious sitting room and dining room, study, family bathroom and five double bedrooms, three of which have en suites. There is definitely plenty of space to spread out. In addition, there is a self-contained one bedroom annexe, making this property perfect to accommodate a dependent relative or an independent teenager!

The whole plot is thought to be almost an acre, with a large lawned front garden, a fully enclosed private rear garden, vegetable garden, greenhouse, two large double garages, an open barn with barbecue area and plenty of parking. 

DIRECTIONS Travelling south on the A38 away from Bristol, drive through Tarnock. Having passed Tarnock Ford Garage on your left, take the next right into Chapel Road. South View House can be found on the right hand side towards the end of the road, just before Chapel Road meets up again with the A38. You are welcome to park on the drive.  

SITUATION Rooksbridge is a rural community in the heart of Somerset and part of the Parish of East Brent on the edge of the Somerset Levels. The village is centred around the pub, post office & stores, and there is also an excellent First School as well as the renowned Hugh Sexeys Middle School and the Kings of Wessex College. Independent schools are at nearby Sidcot, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. Not only is it ideally situated for easy access to the M5 at nearby motorway junction 22, the village is also a short distance from the market town of Highbridge, Weston-super-Mare, Cheddar and the Medieval town of Axbridge. There are many local businesses in the area and its well worth checking the Rooksbridge village website for further information - Being right on the edge of the Mendip Hills the location is perfect for walking and horseriding, or for something more leisurely then there is a health and fitness club at the nearby Webbington Hotel.  

OUR VENDOR SAYS We have sympathetically extended this beautiful Victorian property to accommodate modern family living. We will be sorry to leave as we have been very happy here but it is time for us to downsize.  

WE HAVE NOTICED This property is extensive with flexible accommodation to meet any number of diverse family needs. It has generous flat gardens; two modern double garages; and an enviable, semi rural location with direct A38 access to the M5 in one direction and Bristol and its airport in the other.
