The front door opens from the porch to a spacious traditional entrance hall that has a classic high ceiling, deep moulded skirting boards and architraves that frame the panel doors that open to three of the four reception room and to the kitchen breakfast room. A staircase with original panelling and fluted newel posts rises to the galleried landing above.
The Living Room is arranged to overlook the gardens at the front and double doors lead though the adjacent room to French doors opening to the terrace and rear gardens. The high ceilings further enhance the proportions, there are picture rails and a feature fireplace, but a full chimney might allow the installation of a wood burner or open fire if you wish.
A Sitting Room – Family Room is a lovely bright room that has a bay window allowing a more open outlook.
Glazed double doors lead from the hall to the Dining Room which is next to the kitchen and the layout suits the prospect of opening the wall between the two rooms to create a very large kitchen diner with a picturesque outlook to the garden.
Despite the potential to combine the kitchen and dining room, the kitchen is already large enough for a breakfast table and is fully fitted with an excellent range of wall and floor cupboards with ample granite effect worksurfaces. The recessed full size range cooker has stainless steel chimney hood above and ceramic tiled surrounds and there is an integrated dishwasher. There is also provision for a large American style fridge freezer while a door opens to a utility room with a cloakroom beyond.
The Kitchen overlooks and opens to the patio and rear gardens with views as far as the woodland of Backwell Hill away in the distance.
A study also takes advantage of the outlook to the rear and features a half vaulted ceiling with a double glazed Velux style roof window bathing the room with natural light.
On the first floor the extensive landing and upper hall opens to the family bathroom and the five bedrooms all of which are double rooms, and every room enjoys an attractive, more open outlook. The two bedrooms at the front offer partial views as far as Wraxall, while the remaining bedrooms enjoy the best of the views of the garden, farmland and Backwell Hill.
The principal bedroom has a broad bay window that surveys the forecourt and doors lead to both a walk-in wardrobe and to the shower room en suite.
A large walk-in linen cupboard on the landing provides further good built in storage space.
A pavement and verge set the house even further back from the road and allow good visibility. The gateway opens to an expansive forecourt with space to park and turn and the Garage is attached to the side of the house with a stable door from the garage to the garden and a personnel door from the drive to the utility room.
The garden is bounded at the front by a low dressed stone wall that matches the house and is topped with iron railings.
The rear garden is a particular feature of the property and is fully enclosed so safe for young children and pets. A paved terrace adjoins the back of the house leads to both the lawn and to a sun deck that is sheltered by a Pergola.
The lawn stretches away from the house for a considerable distance with mature hedges to either side and a sleeper edged floral border. The gardens are planted with a series of established specimen trees and shrubs including a superb Magnolia Tree.
All mains services are connected. Full gas central heating through radiators with a high efficiency boiler that was replaced at the end of 2021. Double glazing. High speed broadband services are available including Superfast cable broadband (600mb and upwards download speeds), TV, and telephone services.
