A charming three bedroom period cottage dating from around 1780 and believed to have originally been a quarryman's cottage linked with the old West End quarry. The cottage is everything local stone cottage should be and there are later, very well matched additions that have added considerable space and flexibility including most recently a stone built coach house - garage conversion to the side of the house that today comprises a very attractive studio with a part vaulted ceiling.
The studio is a fabulous space to operate a business from home given the clerestory glazed hall that allows separate access. Equally the studio offers superb additional reception room space, optionally a very large bedroom with scope for an en suite or creation of a spacious annexe for a dependant relative if required.
The cottage occupies a lovely position in this quiet and very sought after lane on the south western edge of Nailsea and when originally built was one of a cluster of cottages that stood alone about 1/2 mile to the south west of Holy Trinity Church, in those days the village centre.
There are local amenities including infant and junior schools nearby and open countryside is just a couple of minutes walk away while, the town centre is about a mile away on foot. The accommodation is full of character having been tastefully renovated and improved with considerable care taken to ensure that all new works blend with and enhance the atmosphere of this very special home. There are ample period features including exposed beams, an open inglenook fireplace, further fireplaces with the fireplace in the dining room having a wood burning stove and the fireplace in the superb farmhouse kitchen framing a newly installed latest energy efficient Esse CAT gas range cooker with timer.
There is a gracious amount of exposed stone work with an usual quadrant chimney breast in the principal bedroom that draws the eye up to the original roof trusses. The very spacious double aspect landing offers a study area that could readily be divided from the landing to provide an additional (fourth) first floor bedroom. All of the bedrooms are double rooms and the bathroom is usually generously proportioned to include a bath and recently installed separate shower.
A further feature of the cottage is the amount of natural light which is quite rare in properties of this vintage.
