DESCRIPTION Boasting fantastic views over the local countryside this much loved individual home has been subject to many sympathetic improvements over recent years and now offers perfectly balanced and flexible accommodation ideally suited to family life.

The property is approached via a generous tarmac driveway offering ample parking for several vehicles and leading to the double garage, the handsome stone Gable to the front of the house offers a striking first impression and adds intrigue as to what lies within. A useful storm porch provides access into a generous and welcoming entrance hallway and provides a handy space to store wet boots and raincoats on a blustery Winters day.

The entrance hallway is light and spacious and provides access to the ground floor rooms and also a useful ground floor WC. The sitting room is a delightful triple aspect room and features a beautiful stone fireplace with wood burner along with French doors to the rear which connect directly to the Garden Room and doors out to the garden. The Garden room looks directly out over the mature rear garden and farm land beyond and is a restful and peaceful room from which to wind away the hours with a good book and take in the beautiful scenery. There are two further reception rooms on the ground floor including a formal dining room which links directly to the kitchen and a study/office or perhaps play room to the front of the house.

The kitchen is fitted with a good range of traditional farmhouse style units and has space for a large six ring range cooker and provision for other white goods. There is a side door providing access out to a covered seating area and the rear of the garages.

On the first floor are the four bedrooms, all of which benefit from varying outlooks over the breathtaking local scenery. The Master bedroom is a simply magnificent room and enjoys the most impressive views from any room in the house and features generous built in wardrobes and eaves storage, along with a private shower room. Completing the first floor accommodation is the well fitted family bathroom with shower over bath and separate WC which are situated off a lovely galleried landing area.

Outside the property is bounded on three sides by a generous and mature garden which is in the majority laid to lawn but also features a large stone terrace along with numerous matures trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. The garden is without question a real feature of the house, it is a tranquil and peaceful space to enjoy and has ample room for Children's play equipment, growing home produce or simply soaking up the sunshine on a mid-summer's day.

Finally, and for some most importantly, the property is blessed with two garages which have power and lighting and could suit a classic car enthusiast, where they could tinker to their heart's content or perhaps an active family who need storage for bikes, outdoor equipment and general stuff.
 

DIRECTIONS Travelling South on the A38 from Bristol, proceed into Churchill and follow the road past the turnings to Rowberrow and Shipham. Pass through Star and proceed up the hill slowing down and indicating left near the top. Turn left into Broadway and first left into Elm Close. No 4 is situated at the end of the cul de sac, viewings strictly by prior appointment. 

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 first, middle and senior 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 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 ( 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.  

WE HAVE NOTICED A more friendly and welcoming home would be difficult to find. There is something to be said for the very first impression you get of a home, and sometimes that old cliché of you know the property is right for you from the minute you step through the door couldn't be truer than for this house. Book a viewing and take a look for yourself!
