An impressive 5 double bedroom family home with 4 reception rooms, a superb south facing garden and far reaching views in a premier village setting in Backwell.
By any measure this is a significant and certainly much admired detached family house that dates from the mid 1920's and occupies a prominent position in this prime village, perfectly placed for all schools and amenities.
The endless accommodation includes 5 double bedrooms, 2 ½ bathroom, 4 reception rooms, an extensive drive, an attached garage and lovely almost 1/4 acre gardens adjoining open fields with views to the village Church and the wooded hillsides of Backwell beyond.
The house is now approaching 100 years old but latterly the house has been updated and improved to afford comfortable, flexible, light and spacious accommodation that flows very well and opens to a fabulous south facing terrace and extensive lawns with open views beyond. The position is superb with the house standing just 200 yards from Backwell School, for decades one of the most sought-after secondary schools in the county, a 10-minute walk from the outstanding village Junior School and just a little further from the Infant School and Nursery. There is also an independent PNEU school, (ages 2-11) close by and the village shops and health centres are a 5-minute walk away.
The house was built around 1926 for a local businessman who had this house designed for him and his family along with number 38 which is slightly smaller but of similar style.
The property is of good quality and displays a number of superior features. These include the part dressed stonework, exposed contrasting stone quoins and the matching pillared porch with a galleried roof which are all elements that make this house stand out among the many fine neighbouring properties many of similar vintage in this part of Backwell.
Another distinguishing feature is how the house stands well back from Farleigh Road. An impressive, pillared gateway is flanked by an original dressed stone wall that opens to the drive and broad forecourt leading in turn to the recessed garage at the side. The forecourt allows parking and turning space with room for a dozen cars or more, perfect for entertaining.
Equally ideal for entertaining are the gardens to the rear that stretch away from the house for over 125’ (38.4m) with the whole plot extending to nearly ¼ acre.
