DESCRIPTION Occupying a large, elevated plot, Elwell Farmhouse is one of the most striking period homes we have seen in a long time. The property offers beautiful rolling gardens, immaculate accommodation and breathtaking views that span the Chew Valley, the iconic lake and the Mendip hills as well! The Farmhouse is also a key part of local history having formally been part of the Faberge racing stables where the farmhouse provided accommodation for the jockeys. This really is a brilliant opportunity to acquire a property which offers the best of both worlds, a stones throw from Bristol yet still on the doorstep of outstanding countryside.

The Farmhouse itself is entered at the front through a dressed stone porch that leads directly into the property. The storm porch leads directly into a large, open plan, kitchen and dining room. This is a room of such a good size and even offers space for a family area to one corner of the room as well. The kitchen opens onto a large inner hallway which provides access to the first floor as well as private rear courtyard which is a perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee! Further ground floor accommodation includes the large sitting room which boasts an impressive fireplace and inset log burner, a stunning Amdega conservatory which overlooks the gardens, a further family room and a study which also provides access to the front of the property.

The first floor certainly won't disappoint either! The master bedroom is of a brilliant size and benefits from its own four piece ensuite bathroom and separate dressing room as well. A large light landing provides access to three further double bedrooms which are all serviced by a family bathroom and separate shower room.

The gardens at Elwell Farmhouse have been so well planned to ensure that there is space for entertaining, relaxing and of course space for growing families to enjoy as well. The gardens feature an array of mature flower and shrub borders as well as feature ponds and rockeries. We are particularly fond on the seating area to the far corner of the garden where the views can be enjoyed to the full.

The space on offer at Elwell Farmhouse poses a great opportunity for a new owner to perhaps keep a pony or start a small holding in the paddock which adjoins the gardens. The outside space also benefits from two large outbuildings which could be used as workshop or office space if required. To the front of the property there is the added bonus of a private driveway, with electric gates, as well as a double garage and ample off street car parking.

 

SITUATION Dundry is a North Somerset village situated on Dundry Hill, in the northern part of the Mendip Hills, between Bristol and the Chew Valley Lake. The city of Bristol is only four miles away and Bath is twelve miles to the west. Its lofty situation, seven hundred feet above sea level at the western end of an exposed four mile long ridge, makes it a notable landmark in North Somerset and its dominance is emphasised by a spectacular fifteenth century church tower. Dundry commands some of the most extensive and beautiful prospects in the west of England, and by night Bristol's lights create a breathtaking scene. The Dundry Inn public house is renowned in the area, and schools include a primary school with secondary schooling available at nearby Chew Valley, and a choice of private schooling in Bristol itself. The area around is well known for its beauty, activities and attraction. The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes provide a host of activities whilst the nearby Mendips are popular and boast great walking, riding and unspoilt nature. 

DIRECTIONS Travelling through Winford Village take the left hand turning onto Dundry Lane just after the Prince Of Waterloo pub. Proceed along the lane for a short while almost to the top of the lane, the Driveway for Elwell Farmhouse can then be found on your right hand side.
