Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Having been lovingly refurbished by the current owners, Sandy Cottages offers a stunning mix of period features, reclaimed materials and modern fixtures that now make it an incredibly special proposition with its size, location and versatility. Situated at the end of a no-through lane, the property is tucked away with fantastic kerb appeal. The hallway is spacious and welcoming, decorated in subtle tones with tile flooring. The principal reception room is fantastically proportioned with striking inglenook fireplace, original beams and deep inset window sills. The adjacent dining room has stripped floorboards, inset spotlights and window seats, and also features a separate seating area with impressive fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Steps lead up to the farmhouse style kitchen, which is dual aspect and flooded with light. The kitchen comprises custom-built wooden base units, electric range cooker with gas hob, and stunning corian sink with mixer tap. A stable door leads out to a spacious terrace which is laid with flagstone paving and rustic railway sleeper borders.
The library is cosy and snug with stone fire surround and wood burning stove. Adjacent to this is a studio, complete with Belfast sink, benefiting from an internal window. The conservatory is the latest addition to the property and offers a versatile space, that lends itself particularly well to entertaining, with double doors leading out to the westerly facing patio and garden beyond. The room itself benefits from newly laid tile flooring with underfloor heating and useful sink unit in the corner. A downstairs w/c completes the accommodation on this floor.

On the first floor all rooms lead off a wonderfully light landing with a charming outlook to the village church. The dual aspect master bedroom with exposed beams and wooden flooring benefits from an exposed chimney breast which to the left houses a shower and to the right a wash hand basin. A guest bedroom with vaulted ceiling and fitted wardrobes is situated at the other end of the house with adjacent bathroom. The bathroom comprises freestanding double shower and fitted bath, wash hand basin with vanity unit and low level w/c. This floor is home to a further three bedrooms, all benefiting from period features, deep inset window sills and neutral décor. In addition there is another bathroom, complete with separate shower, bath, re-claimed wash hand basin and low level w/c. A further staircase leads to the third floor comprising two large rooms.


Aust is a small, friendly and thriving village with an active pub. Residents are drawn to the area to make the most of the surrounding countryside with its plethora of walks, bridle paths and nature reserves. It also has an excellent schooling system with many local children attending Olveston Junior school with Castle and Marwood Senior school and others making the drive to the many schools in the Clifton area. Transport links are also fantastic, with access to the motorway network whilst Bristol Parkway offers high speed train links to London in 90 minutes and Severn Beach Railway station offers a direct line to Clifton and Temple Meads.


The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a fantastically finished two tiered terrace. Tucked away to the side is a stone built workshop. The main lawn is level and incredibly private with an array of established plants and trees. At the rear of the garden, adjacent to the chicken coop, the mature vegetable plot with raised beds is a lovely asset. The property also benefits from a bike store.
