DESCRIPTION Situated on the edge of the popular village of Locking, on the quiet one way system, is this charming 1930s detached property with stunning panoramic rural views and beautiful mature gardens. The property has been a beloved family home for the last 18 years and is now ready for the next family to move in and put their mark on it. Apart from adding a lovely conservatory, enlarging the kitchen and adding a contemporary bathroom, very little has been done to extend or change the property over the years so it is an exciting prospect for the right buyer. It retains much of its original design, with three bedrooms upstairs, and sitting room, dining room and kitchen downstairs. As soon as you walk into the sitting room you are immediately drawn out into the conservatory and to the views beyond, it is the perfect place to relax with a cup of tea and unwind. The family bathroom and kitchen flat roof extension downstairs offers potential to extend the upstairs, subject to the appropriate consents. The property is warmed by gas central heating, and the combination boiler can be found upstairs in bedroom two.

As the garden slopes away at the rear of the property it allows for a handy garden room, albeit with limited head height, tucked away under the dining room. The back garden is an absolute delight with lawn, patio, pond with water feature, and mature planting. By contrast the front garden is virtually flat, with a driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles and leading to a single garage at the side of the property. EPC rating E.

DIRECTIONS From the Banwell direction on the A371 turn left onto Old Banwell Road, continue towards the end of the road and number 10 can be found on your left hand side not far from the junction with Debbie Fortune Estate Agents 'For Sale' board outside the property. You are welcome to park on the driveway.  

SITUATION 10 Old Banwell Road is just a few moments' walk away from the local facilities in this popular North Somerset village. These include shops, primary school, doctors, church, pub, hairdressers and garage. More extensive facilities are available in Weston-super-Mare, just a short drive away, with its well known Victorian sea front, the new Grand Pier, museum and the station. The M5 motorway is also within easy reach giving access to Bristol and the national motorway network. The countryside around is lovely and the Mendip Hills are within reach with a host of country activities close by. Bus routes run through the village between Weston-super-Mare to Wells via Cheddar, and Weston-super-Mare to Bristol via the airport. Within a couple of miles there are local railway stations in Worle and Weston-super-Mare.

OUR VENDOR SAYS We have loved our house and lived here for 18 years. We have enjoyed the conservatory all year round with its lovely country views. The peaceful sheltered garden has also been a joy to us. Since I have been left on my own I have come to the decision it is now the right time for me to downsize.  

WE HAVE NOTICED This property is ideally situated for easy access for all the amenities in Locking such as the park, shops, school, post office, pub and church. There is a list of village activities on the church website, under 'village news',
