What is your dream home? Is it one with plenty of room to grow, with a large garden and stunning, open views? Would you like your home to be in a secluded location, but still have easy access to shops and amenities? This home, just outside Banwell, has all of that, in spades.
Built over three floors, the accommodation boasts no less than five bedrooms—two with en suite, a family dining room, two living rooms, and a study/office. Depending on your needs, the ground floor sitting room and bedroom with en-suite facilities could be easily converted into a self-contained annexe, with connecting door—perfect for a live-in parent, or offspring who need their independence.
The house is entered through a light and airy hallway with WC facilities off. Straight ahead of you, a large family/dining room is open-plan to an L-shaped kitchen fitted with contrasting grey and white units. The dishwasher and fridge/freezer are built in, as is the wine chiller, microwave and two ovens. To compliment the appliances, there is a five-ring gas hob with extractor fan. Underfloor heating is topped by stylish Amtico tiles. The utility area is tucked around the corner, hidden from the living area. Here, there is a sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine.
A log burner features at one end of the room, while two sets of double doors lead out into the garden. There is another modern log burner in the second living area, which also features doors to the garden. Off this room is the fifth bedroom with its en-suite facilities.
Bedroom one is currently used as a lounge, taking advantage of the open views over the rear garden to the fields. There are en-suite facilities with a walk-in shower cubicle, low-level WC, handbasin and heated towel rail. Three other good-size bedrooms are on this floor, with a family bathroom.
Stairs take you up to the top floor, where two adjacent rooms could comprise an office suite for those lucky enough to work-from-home. Currently, one room is used as a chill-out room, but just as easily serve as a music room, or provide the space for a little light exercise. Yoga, anyone?
You won’t fail to be impressed with the sweeping approach to this well-maintained property. Two sets of gates open onto a tarmac drive, providing ample space for a number of vehicles. A garage can be accessed from the drive.
The back garden is large, mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees—plenty of room for the kids, or grandkids to run around. There is also storage for garden equipment and a greenhouse. But the pièce de résistance has to be the huge decking area. Shaded by a pergola at one end, with doors leading onto it from both downstairs living rooms, it is the perfect place to entertain. And if that wasn’t enough, if the wind is blowing too hard, your guests could retire the amply sized garden room!
