Description

Stoney Lodge enjoys a wonderful setting, tucked away from other properties and enjoying simply magnificent views across fields and open countryside. Constructed in the 1960's and subsequently completely transformed by the current owners who have created a bespoke and highly individual family home in this lovely location, just a short distance from the village centre. The house is perfectly orientated to take full advantage of the lovely elevated position, it is rare to find a home with such sweeping panoramic vistas particularly given the homes close proximity to the cities of Bath and Bristol.

The home enjoys an impressive approach over a long sweeping driveway leading to a generous gravelled turning area and parking for a number of vehicles immediately to the front of the house. A welcoming entrance hall leads to an extremely spacious sitting/dining room that is over 30ft in length with feature log burning stove and three sets of patio doors opening to the terrace and decking, flooding the room with a good deal of natural light. Off the sitting room is a dedicated study room and there a further snug off the inner hall which leads pass the utility room and cloakroom to a key part of the home - the beautiful kitchen/family room that runs the full width of the home. In total there are five bedrooms, the master with en suite and bedrooms two and three sharing a Jack and Jill style shower room. A larger family bathroom serves bedrooms four and five. The integral indoor heated pool room is smartly designed, the pool itself being of the perfect size for large gathering family and friends (9.7 mtr x 4.86 mtr) and the adjacent garage could easily be adapted to a full gymnasium if so desired.

The private and enclosed grounds are well maintained, principally laid to level lawn, interspersed with trees and bordered by mature hedgerow. The large decked terrace with recess floor lighting is a terrific feature flanked by a neighbours paddock that gently drops down the hillside with a delightful Chew Valley countryside and National Trust land beyond.
