Property Description

DESCRIPTION Set in a gloriously rural location overlooking Blagdon Lake at the end of a quiet country lane and yet only 13 miles from Bristol centre. This outstanding and individual home is nestled into the hillside and has been cleverly designed to embrace the outstanding countryside views and peaceful location it occupies.

Built in the 1960s as a fishing lodge the house was extensively and imaginatively updated by the current owner and has generous and flexible living space arranged over three floors combining some of the finest views in the area.
 

ACCOMMODATION Located at the end of a quiet county lane there is ample parking to the front of the property, with steps leading up to the front door. The oak front door leads into a light and welcoming entrance hall with galleried landing above. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of wall and floor cabinets with an electric red double oven Aga, sink, electric oven and hob, all finished under a Welsh slate worktop. The floor is made from reclaimed maple boards from a sports hall. The kitchen area opens into the dining area which has large picture windows overlooking the lake and valley below with doors leading onto a balcony and outside seating area. There is a family room/study with open fireplace and picture window overlooking the gardens. The sitting room has a fireplace with Bath stone surround and a marble hearth and enjoys views over the countryside. There is a good-sized cloakroom with ample storage for coats and boots. The ground floor space is both flexible and hospitable and lends itself very well to entertaining or large family gatherings.  

OUTSIDE The lower ground floor can be accessed via doors at the front or rear and has a useful configuration of rooms with a gym area, pantry, wine cellar, boiler room and laundry room. This area has potential to be a self-contained annexe subject to the necessary consent.
On the first floor there is a generous and light landing. The sumptuous master bedroom suite makes the most of the outstanding views and benefits from a balcony with glass double doors leading to an outdoor seating area and has a contemporary wood burning stove and wooden floors. The dressing area is fitted with wardrobe and cupboards and opens into the bedroom. The en-suite bathroom is fitted with a freestanding copper bath, separate shower and basin set into a vanity unit. The guest suite occupies the other end of the house and has a separate door leading to the gardens which does give this a degree of independence from the rest of the first floor. This room has super views and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms and two-family bathrooms.
 

LOCATION Bordered to the south by the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within striking distance of Bristol and Bath and interspersed with dairy farms, pretty stone-built villages and the Chew Valley to the North. The centrepiece is the village of Chew Magna which has rural Somerset's only Michelin-starred pub, The Pony & Trap and the Boutique country hotel The Pig a few miles away. Nempnett Thrubwell is about 13 miles South of Bristol and 20 miles from Bath. Bristol, Bath and Wells all have a range of primary and secondary schools for boys, girls and mixed schooling. Private schools include Queen Elizabeth Hospital School, Bristol Grammar School, Clifton College, Millfield School, Kingswood School, Badminton School, Prior Park College, Monkton Combe, Wells Cathedral School and the Bruton Schools amongst many others. Chew Valley School and The Blue School in Wells are highly regarded state schools. Recreational activities in the area are superb with the Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes appealing to the sailing enthusiast, with outdoor activity centre with dry ski slopes, horse riding, walking and mountain biking all on the doorstep.
