DESCRIPTION Here is an idyllic character cottage with fabulous lake views ... what more could you want? Whether you are in the sitting room, master bedroom or out sunning yourself on the decking, the views of the lake and countryside are absolutely beautiful. The cottage is in an elevated position on the edge of the village heading down towards Blagdon Lake. From Swandene you can walk into the centre of the village with its local facilities, including three good pubs, and the noteable Yeo Valley Canteen. For keen walkers there is no need to get into a car as there are glorious walks from the doorstep.

The bespoke hardwood front door, under its charming porch, hints at the quality and finish of the interior. The property is light and bright with neutral paintwork throughout. The kitchen has a tiled floor and is fitted with an integrated dishwasher and range cooker and there is space for a family to sit round the dining table. There is a little utility area tucked away next to the kitchen, and a handy coat area and shoe cupboard under the stairs. The sitting room boasts a log burner and stunning views. All the double glazed upvc windows are fitted with bespoke wooden venetian blinds.

Upstairs, the two double bedrooms share a lovely sea shore-themed bathroom with shower. The master bedroom has wonderful lake views and is light and spacious; the second bedroom is also a good size and is also home to a small study area.

The vendors have not only worked their magic inside the house but also throughout the garden. They have landscaped the plot at the front of the house where there is a charming little gateway, leading up a gravel path with colourful borders to the front door, where there is also a little pergola with space to sit out with your morning coffee on a sunny day. The garden beyond the driveway has also been transformed, with a bespoke spacious high quality shed, decking, seating area and raised vegetable beds. It is a marvellous place for entertaining, having a barbecue, or just somewhere to sit and relax, enjoy the tranquillity and ... of course... those wonderful views! EPC rating E.

Our vendor says... We could not have asked for a better first home, a unique character cottage but practical and homely at the same time. We have enjoyed decorating and transforming the garden adding new fencing, vegetable planters, flower borders and a large shed. It's so nice to live in a friendly village, with beautiful lake views surrounded by countryside, walking distance to three fantastic pubs and still being within an easy commute to Bristol. In the summer the garden is a great sunny place to relax after work and have a BBQ on the new deck with a view!

We have noticed... Especially on a sunny day, this is a little piece of heaven! When we were taking the photographs we didn't want to leave. It is such a tranquil, beautiful location it is easy to forget how close you are to Bristol.
