There are excellent rail links available from Bristol Temple Meads train station, whilst Bristol Airport has an extensive schedule of flights to a number of European destinations. For those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, there are many walks and bridal paths available from the nearby Ashton Court Estate and through Leigh Woods. Golf courses are in abundance and include Bristol and Clifton and Long Ashton.

Description

An imaginatively designed single storey house with deceptive accommodation and open plan elements. Constructed from white rendered elevations with double glazed windows and a slate pitched and tiled room. The home is beautifully appointed and ideally situated on the cusp of pasture with far reaching rural views. Originally constructed in the 1930s, the house was extended and modernised within the last 10 years and offers good live/work prospects with the separate studio.

The covered porch and reception hall with travertine floor leads through to the open plan areas, whilst a drop down ladder provides access to the occasional loft used as a study. The focal point for the home is the open plan living, kitchen and diner which include bi-folding doors and picture windows. The sitting area has an outstanding vista with a cathedral style roof and leads to the dining area and consequently the kitchen. The kitchen features granite work surfaces, a range of contemporary wall and base units and incorporates some integrated appliances such as a built in oven and two dishwashers and a feature island unit with a four oven Aga. Steps from the sitting area lead to a formal dining room and beyond through glazed doors is the more intimate sitting room. Located off the landing there are four bedrooms served by three bathrooms in addition to a utility which houses the gas fired boiler, an integrated fridge freezer and the prerequisite plumbing for laundry services. The master bedroom has a shallow bay overlooking the side elevation and includes a walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom is equally well appointed with built in wardrobe, doors out to the garden and has a further en suite with Jacuzzi bath with shower over, vanity unit and pedestal wash basin. There are two additional bedrooms served by the adjacent shower room.

There are gardens on two sides of the house allied with a loose gravelled parking area. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with post and rail fence and strategic planting to maximise the outlook. There are dedicated sun terraces and a pretty water feature located off the open plan living, kitchen, dining room. The remainder of the curtilage is planted with evergreens and a sun deck and summer house provide an ideal barbeque area. The studio has live/work prospects and is presently set up as a treatment room with a cloakroom off and this backs on to the former garage, which is a useful store.
