A wonderful family home in large secluded 1.25 acre grounds


Brislington is a suburb in South Bristol within close proximity of both the A4 Bath Road and A37 Wells Road. Primary, Comprehensive Schools and St Brendans 6th Form College are well situated. Local shops, Superstores, the Avonmeads Retail Park - consisting of The Showcase Cinema Complex and other stores are within easy reach. Brislington Park & Ride is situated on the A4 for easy access into Bristol.


Most conveniently located for both Bath and Bristol, Orchard Cottage occupies the most wonderful setting, hidden away in a semi-rural enclave at the end of a long private driveway with a backdrop of beautiful mature trees, many of which were planted by the current owners upon building the house in 1955. This little known area is set behind the historic Long Fox Manor and is truly a hidden gem. Perhaps most surprising is that the home so conveniently placed should have such generous mature grounds with beautiful lawns, a wooded copse and in addition to the garaging, parking for numerous vehicles.

Approached via a small enclosed porch with glazed door directly into the welcoming hallway with further door into the adjoining dining room and sitting room. The dining room features a wide bay window with cleverly designed curved book shelving and display plinth under and a central chimney breast with fireplaces to either side. The sitting room with wood burner features a wide bay window over looking the stunning rear garden and double doors opening into the large conservatory. The modern fitted kitchen features an array of storage units with granite work surfaces and breakfast bar and a five burner Range master stove with stainless steel extractor and Belfast sink unit. An integrated Whirlpool microwave oven and dishwasher is set into the wall unit and there is space for a large fridge freezer. A small step from the kitchen opens to a quarry tiled rear lobby with small sink and storage cupboards and a small utility with space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and housing the wall hung Potterton gas boiler. Also in this area is the downstairs cloakroom, a further glazed garden room currently used as an artist studio and a door that leads directly into the double garage, one door being electrically operated. At first floor there are five bedrooms set off a split level landing and a modern family bathroom with shower and bath.

Without doubt, the gardens at Orchard Cottage are an absolute delight with twin five bar gates leading to a carriage driveway and sweeping lawns with a fine central Oak tree creating a lovely focal point to the grounds. Within recent years, the owner has created an ornamental water garden with raised beds and summer house set upon elevated decking and the gravel pathway that borders much of the garden leading to a shady, leafy dell at the far end with brick built outbuilding with wonderful storage and a stand alone timber shed. It is hard to imagine a more pleasing garden; one that has been well loved and enjoyed during over half century of the vendors ownership. Finely, for those that enjoy outdoor dining the addition of a large paved terrace is set immediately to the rear and is a true, sheltered sun trap perfect for morning coffees or summer barbeques.
