Tenure: Freehold

A quietly located village home with scope for a degree of updating that includes a fully self contained annexe

Location

Blagdon is a pretty North Somerset village sitting at the foot of the Mendip Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Within the village there is a convenience store, butchers, tennis club and cricket club in additional to three hostelries, the closest of which is The New Inn. There is a parish church and primary school in Blagdon itself whilst Bristol, Bath and Wells with their excellent independent schools are also accessible. Bath and Bristol are virtually equidistant and Wells is 11.8 miles distant over the Mendips and they offer an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, boutiques and theatres whilst the historic city of Wells includes the cathedral and a further array of outlets. For sporting pursuits there is fly fishing on Blagdon lake as well as boating on the Chew Valley Lakes, whilst the Mendips offer some challenging hikes and bridle paths. Bristol Airport is approximately 6.4 miles distant with flights to a number of European and some long haul destinations and Bristol Temple Meads train station has services to many cities nationwide.

Description

This detached period home is the amalgamation of a family dwelling and former stone built stables to the rear, all of which have been incorporated into the residence as stands today - an L shaped, four bedroom home with a fully self-contained independent annexe.

Set adjacent to the grounds of the beautiful 15th Century village church, the house commands truly breathtaking views across Blagdon Lake from its elevated position and there is a wonderful sense of peace and tranquillity in the generous, fully enclosed private grounds. The home has been in the same family ownership for some 40 years and whilst it would now benefit from a degree of updating, there is no question that this has been a well loved property and opportunities such as this in this hugely popular Chew Valley village are becoming increasingly rare. There is certainly scope to remodel some of the accommodation, but as currently laid out, the home is approached on a daily basis via the courtyard that leads into an inner hallway with kitchen overlooking the lake, a separate family room with picture window looking towards St Andrew's church. It may well be possible to incorporate these two rooms into one large family kitchen/breakfast room. The hallway leads through to the adjacent dining room with open stone fireplace, a Mahogany panelled bar area under the stairs and matching alcove display and storage cupboard. The drawing room is a lovely size with four windows ensuring that it enjoys a good deal of natural light and open fireplaces to either end. There is a doorway to the front of the property. The library, with access to the garden, would make an excellent study and to the rear there lies a family bathroom and cloaks storage area. At first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which enjoy the magnificent lake views with the master benefitting from a walk through dressing area and dedicated en suite. The annexe is approached via an external stone staircase and sits above the former stables. There is a large living room with delightful lake views, a separate double bedroom, small kitchen and shower room with WC. A detached single garage has been built within the grounds which supplements the storage that is underneath the annexe, also providing a dedicated utility area with space for freezer and fridge. Central heating for both the annexe and the main house is provided by the oil fired boiler in the kitchen fed by a modern, bunded oil tank set behind the detached garage.

A sheltered flagstone patio is the perfect spot for enjoying al fresco dining and the gated driveway provides parking for 4/5 cars. The lawned garden is surrounded by deep shrub borders with stone walling encompassing the whole of the plot - a garden that is of sufficient size to satisfy the keenest of gardeners and for those with young children or pets, offering a great sense of security and space for play.

With some of the most beautiful walks in the region immediately on the doorstep and located across the lane from the pretty village inn, it is hard to imagine a home offering a more idyllic rural lifestyle, yet so close to the airport and the cities of Bath and Bristol.
