DESCRIPTION An ideal property for a growing family, number 5 is tucked away in this lovely village, whilst being in walking distance to amenities and the local primary school. The property has been loved by the current owners who have brought their own children up here and now after 37 years have decided that now is the time to downsize to something a bit smaller. Thus, leaving the next chapter to begin for the next purchasers.

Comprising a gorgeous contemporary kitchen with breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher and ceramic sink, a light, bright and stunningly presented sitting room, with feature log burner for cosy nights in and doors leading directly out into the private sunny south facing garden. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, a modern bathroom and space for potential to add an ensuite. Whilst downstairs there is a real treat, through the sitting room a door leads to the study where over the garage we are shown to a "den" space, which is ideal for the younger members of the family to play on their consoles, be studious or indeed just take a time out.

The outside space is private and benefits from being south facing. The current owners have clearly loved gardening and there are loads of examples of a well maintained green space with areas of sit and bask in the heat. The entire house benefits from gas central heating, double glazing, loads of storage, garage and a driveway. EPC rating D. 

DIRECTIONS Coming into the village of Shipham from the A38, go past the primary school on your right and take the first right hand turn into Sycamore Close, number 5 can be found on the left hand side.  

SITUATION Shipham is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a highly sought after village, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by first, middle and senior schools and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with many bridleways and footpaths, including the West Mendip Way which crosses the parish providing ready access to the hills and Mendip plateau, where there are extensive views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Brecon Beacons beyond. Indeed, it is very well positioned for local transport links and the M5 motorway which is accessible via junction 20 at Clevedon, junction 21 at St Georges and junction 22 at Edithmead. Village facilities are available, including butcher/stores, garage, public house and further shopping facilities at nearby Winscombe and Cheddar. The new village hall (with its stage, sports hall, function rooms and kitchen) is a popular centre for a broad range of community events and activities for all ages. Private sector schooling is close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach, as are Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School ( is nearby and for sports and recreational amenities, Churchill Academy is a drive away. The surrounding area is excellent riding country and is sure to appeal to equestrian enthusiasts and walkers. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to the mainline railway station at Yatton.  

OUR VENDOR SAYS We fell in love with Shipham; the area was perfect for bringing up our children. The local primary school is just around the corner so we never had to get in the car and Kings of Wessex in Cheddar is an outstanding school for further education. We have genuinely loved living here and a part of us will be really sad leaving but it's the right time. Another family needs the space, and should enjoy growing here! 

WE HAVE NOTICED My vendors have cleverly organised a set of outline plans for purchasers to look at, who might be interested in adding further accommodation. This will be made available on viewings for inspection.
