Wonderfully bright and spacious family home set amongst glorious open countryside. Incredibly peaceful with country walks in all directions. Perfect for multi-generation living.

Description

Approached via double five bar gates opening to an exceptionally generous gravel driveway, Binhams is set in a truly idyllic and peaceful rural location surrounded by glorious open countryside in the heart of the Chew Valley. Given that the house is so conveniently located for Bristol, Bath and the airport, this represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to find a home offering such a wonderful combination of seclusion and country lifestyle coupled with such convenience.

Since being built in 1974, this impressive residence has benefitted from two significant phases of remodelling. In making these changes, the vendors have transformed the original property into a beautifully planned and flexible home currently used by the extended family for dual occupancy but by no means should one consider it restricted to such use.

There are two principal entrances to the property, with a central vestibule opening to a welcoming and high vaulted entrance hallway with wood burning stove and a staircase to the first floor galleried reception. A large, bright dining room leads to a generous kitchen with pantry cupboard, granite work surfaces, extensive array of solid wood cabinets including dresser, wine store and built in granite breakfast table. Appliances include a Bosch integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer and stainless steel Neff oven with ceramic hob. The adjoining utility room offers further storage with door to the rear terrace and a covered link to the superb workshop. Set off the inner hallway is a further reception room/bedroom and with the adjacent modern shower room, this would be an ideal independent suite for a dependent relative.

The eastern side of the house benefits from its own large hallway, accessed from the front driveway. There is a lovely drawing room with a further wood burning stove and French doors with side windows commanding truly delightful views across the lawned rear garden to the hillsides beyond. Ground floor areas on this side of the property benefit from under floor central heating. The second kitchen is a terrific open plan area, predominantly L shaped in design with expansive granite work surfaces and incorporating a Rangemaster Professional+ stove, integrated microwave, larder fridge, freezer and a pantry storage unit. Set off this kitchen is an enormous utility room with door to the side garden and a generous study quietly tucked away that offers a great vantage point over the driveway and front garden. Certainly this is a property that would suit those seeking to combine home life and work and is it worth noting that for those concerned about connectivity, CAT 6 data cabling has been integrated within the property and TrueSpeed supplies telephone and data (over 200Mb/s) to the property via fibre optic cable. Doors from the utility lead into one half of the quadruple garages which feature Horstmann rollmatic electric doors. The garages have been built with a much greater height than standard, allowing space for large 4x4s and camper vans with ample space for additional storage with further attic storage in the high pitched roofs.

At one end of the home, there are three double bedrooms, the master with large en suite, built in wardrobes and a Juliette balcony from which to enjoy the beautiful country views. The family bathroom has a second walk in shower, dual ended bath, large airing cupboard and electric under floor heating. The main central staircase leads to the galleried sitting room, a second principal bedroom extensively fitted with wardrobes, drawers and dressing table/desk. This leads to a walk through dressing area with en suite and a second study.

Adjoining the house is a workshop. This is a wonderfully versatile space, whether to be used in its current form or adapted as a superb home office or gym. The dual aspect to both front and rear gardens mean that this is a bright, pleasant environment in which to work and the direct access from the front drive could be very useful for those with visiting clients.

The grounds that surround Binhams are beautifully established and exceptionally well tended. It is a joy to stand in the extensive rear garden and take in the beauty and tranquillity of the adjoining countryside, predominantly open farmland with views to the rolling hillsides beyond. A miniature railway has been incorporated at the far end of the grounds. Whilst the owners are willing to remove the railway tracks and engine shed prior to completion, they would be very willing to leave in situ should the subsequent purchasers wish. From the patio, stone steps lead down to a lower terrace, perfect for summer drinks and barbecues and the lawn that gently sweeps down the garden is interspersed with mixed ornamental and fruit trees.

Location

Binhams is situated on the outskirts of Ubley, in the highly sought after Chew Valley area of Somerset. Communication links are excellent with easy access to Bristol’s thriving commercial centre as well as the historic cities of Bath and Wells. Within 7.1 miles, Bristol Airport offers a range of flights to both European and some long haul destinations. Educational facilities in the area are highly regarded with an excellent village primary school and Chew Valley Secondary School nearby. In addition there are numerous independent schools in Bristol/Bath whilst Wells Cathedral School (9.8 miles) offers unique opportunities to gifted young musicians.
