This attractively presented character home of more than 3500 sq ft is situated in a desirable village that is popular with commuters for its excellent road links and close proximity to central Bristol. The property sits high up with wonderful views and is believed to have been built in the 17th century with later additions and is Grade II listed, noted for its exposed beams, period fireplaces, mullioned windows, floor tiles, wall panelling and cornicing. Many of these character features have been skilfully incorporated into the modern-day home, which also features a stylish, contemporary kitchen and updated bath and shower rooms. The low ceilings and uneven floors hark back to the property’s lengthy history and yet it still feels bright and enjoys good natural light throughout.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and is accessed via a porch to the front, which leads to a central entrance hall. The main reception rooms open on either side, including a sitting room with a Dundry stone fireplace dating back to the 16th Century, a dining room (with internal access to the garage), a snug and the family kitchen. There is also a useful cloakroom with wc. And a number of storage cupboards. The stairs rise up from the centre of the house to a first-floor landing, which has access to a main bedroom with en suite shower room and dressing room, a further bedroom with en suite, a family bathroom and three additional good-size bedrooms.
The off-street parking and garage is accessible from the side off Buttercliffe Rise and includes a gravel driveway. The gardens wrap around the front and side of the house and are stocked with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs, box topiary and landscaped borders, an expansive lawn and colourful flowerbeds. In the garden there is also a summer house and a greenhouse, plus external power points can be found to the front and back of the property.
The house is situated in prime position on a popular road to the eastern edge of the popular village of Long Ashton and within three miles of Bristol, proving to be particularly convenient for commuters. The village has an active community and includes a choice of shops, primary schools, public houses and churches.
