An excellent opportunity to acquire a delightful country cottage dating back we believe some 200 years and situated in a most stunning rural setting, affording outstanding views across the surrounding countryside. In this instance, viewing is absolutely essential in order to fully appreciate this charming character property, which has been fully modernised and extended to a high specification throughout, including complete rewiring and a new central heating system, which was installed in 2014. Whilst the property is full of character with old stone walls, and cottage style doors with handmade iron work it does also provide many of the benefits associated with modern and convenient living, and of course enjoys commanding unrivalled views from almost every window. In brief, the accommodation includes: Entrance Hall, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Conservatory, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility Room, Cloakroom, First Floor Landing, Master Bedroom with En Suite Shower Room, Two Further Bedrooms and Bathroom. Outside, the property is approached via a sweeping gated stone chipped driveway providing ample parking, which in turn leads to the newly constructed and impressive oak framed double garage with solar panels installed. The generous gardens form a particular feature of the property and will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest with areas of lawn; flower/shrub borders and landscaped seating areas. Viewing is strictly by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
The rural and historical village of Christon with medieval origins is nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, a conservation area and designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The close-knit community boasting a 12th century Parish Church is just a short distance from the larger neighbouring village of Loxton and approximately 3 miles from both Winscombe and Axbridge which offer a wide range of amenities including: Doctor, dental and veterinary practices, a range of retail outlets, public houses/restaurants and professional practices. For those with a keen interest in the outdoors there are a range of activities available including: Horse riding, walking and mountain biking on the Mendip Hills and surrounding countryside, sailing and fishing on the Chew Valley Lakes and Cheddar reservoir and there are a number of excellent golf courses within the district. A particular draw to the area is the excellent range of schools on offer, these include: Weare Academy First School, Axbridge Church of England First School and Winscombe Primary. Secondary education is available at The Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar and Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre in Churchill. Private schooling is available at Sidcot near Winscombe and The Cathedral School in Wells. For those travelling further afield access to the A38 and M5 Motorway network are within easy reach providing access to Bristol City Centre and beyond. There are mainline railway connections at Worle, Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Backwell providing direct links to Bristol Temple Mead, London Paddington and other major towns and cities. Bristol international airport is within a 30-minute drive.
From Bristol heading South West on the A38 proceed through the village of Langford. At the traffic lights in Churchill turn right onto Dinghurst Road signposted to Banwell and Weston-super-Mare. Follow the road for approximately 2.5 miles passing through the village of Sandford. At the 'T' Junction in Banwell turn left onto Castle Hill. Proceed to the top of the hill and with Banwell Castle ahead of you, bear right onto The Rhodyate. Proceed down the hill and follow the road through a sharp right hand bend. Continue on this road for approximately 2 miles that in turn leads onto the Christon Road and then the Banwell Road. Proceed into the village of Christon passing Flagstaff Road with the Church of St Mary on the corner and take the next available turning on the right onto Weston Lane. Continue on this woodland road and proceed to the top of the hill where the road leads onto an unmade road. The property can be found immediately on the right-hand side.
