Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most individual home with magnificent far reaching panoramic views. Tucked away in a wonderful, hidden location with extensive grounds and private woodland.


Cottage in the Garden provides good ease of access to Bristol City Centre and the M5 motorway network. Nearby Clevedon and Nailsea have thriving town centres with shops suitable for day to day living, including a Waitrose. There are schools, primary and secondary and Tickenham also has a highly regarded school and golf course. Footpaths and bridle paths cross the surrounding countryside. Clifton provides a cosmopolitan mix of boutiques, bars and restaurants, and is approximately 9.2 miles distant. Regular rail services are available from Yatton or Backwell and Nailsea and the Airport provides an extensive schedule of flights to a number of European and some long haul destinations.


Built in 1999 and lived in since by the same family, this most individual architect designed home is set in a little known location at the head of a long driveway and commands wonderful panoramic views over the tennis court and open countryside to the Mendip Hills beyond. It is rare to find a home so conveniently placed for Bristol and the motorway network yet enjoying a terrific sense of peace and tranquillity and the benefit of such lovely mature and wooded grounds. Approached via residential Orchard Avenue, the tarmac road gives way to a rustic gravel driveway set high on the slopes beneath Cadbury Camp Lane on the brow of the hill. This private and secluded property with warm random stone and rendered finishes and striking architectural elevations has been designed so as to make the very best of the panoramic outlook at first floor level with enormous balconies to either side of the property providing excellent seating areas. Even better views are captured from the elevated lawn which on a clear day reach as far as Crooks Peak and the Bristol Channel. The gardens are certainly a noteworthy feature of the home combining cultivated colourful displays of mature shrubs and more rustic wildlife areas with the backdrop of deciduous woodland - truly a nature lovers dream. The tennis court is conveniently set immediately to the front of the house and is approached via a flight of steps that lead down to the fully enclosed tarmac court which has been recently marked out ready for immediate use.

The front door leads to an entrance lobby with cloakroom and separate cloak store opening to the reception hallway with oak galleried staircase to half landing and upper floor. The main drawing room is of a generous proportion and beautifully light with sliding patio doors opening to a paved terrace with rockery above. A working stone fireplace is located to one corner of the room and the adjacent music room doubles as a study. To the far side of the hallway is the dedicated dining room with a very large and comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room beyond. Again, a light room with dual aspect and further patio doors providing easy access to the driveway, triple garage and rear garden. A small staircase from the back of the kitchen leads to the additional cloakroom and laundry room which may also be accessed from the half landing. The home is wonderful for those seeking flexibility in layout with two bedrooms or further receptions also at this level. The master bedroom at first floor is particularly spacious, well fitted with a long run of bespoke wardrobes and enjoying sole use of the newly refurbished balcony and a large four piece en suite bathroom. The double bedroom at the far end of the landing has an even larger paved and decked terrace and the family bathroom with shower cubical sits adjacent to the middle bedroom. A staircase continues to the remaining bedrooms, both doubles, one of which also has its own en suite shower room.
