A stunning 6 bedroom, 3½ bathroom family home offering impeccably presented accommodation and enjoying a fabulous position with panoramic views across the valley, (Greenbelt countryside), to the wooded hillsides of the National Trust owned Tyntesfield Estate away in the distance.
This particularly fine family home was originally one of the much admired Hayden style houses at The Elms. However, had the developers continued to refine this design then this is probably the way the layout would have evolved to offer even more attractive accommodation that flows beautifully and includes a striking open plan kitchen dining room that is so much more social than the original kitchen-breakfast room and separate dining room layout.
The house is a classic double fronted property of asymmetric layout that occupies a commanding position in probably the best location in this premier residential area on the borders of Wraxall and Nailsea. The construction is traditional having attractive mellow brick elevations with a pronounced lower plinth and contrasting quoins beneath a tiled, felted and insulated roof.
There has been and endless list of improvements over the original specification and the house the offers very comfortable accommodation with numerous attractive features including bay windows, an open fireplace and a galleried landing over the stairwell and reception hall. The reception rooms are well proportioned with a light, airy feel. An attractive dining area has a bay window to the rear, the living room and fully fitted kitchen – dining room (via the utility room) open to the private south westerly facing rear garden while, a cloakroom completes the ground floor inventory.
The galleried landing circulates to a selection of ample bedrooms on the first floor, with all four offering space enough for double beds and each complete with built in wardrobes. The larger bedrooms both have fully refurbished en suite bathrooms and the family bathroom is also well equipped.
The staircase continues to the second floor where a landing is illuminated by Velux windows that allow even more expansive views. This landing opens to two further rooms with vaulted ceilings, one currently furnished as a double bedroom and the second as a study or sitting room but optionally a sixth bedroom and both have good eaves storage access.
AN ENVIABLE POSITION:
A key advantage with this house is the position. The plot affords lovely views but unlike most of the limited number of the houses with a similar view at The Elms the setting is not blighted by a potentially awkward, single track shared gravelled drive which many have. The double drive for this house opens directly to the very appealing herringbone paved cul de sac with plenty of space for visitors to park. The unusually wide frontage with the detached double garage to the right and the front garden bounded by a traditional garden wall set the scene well.
The Elms is now well established and offers an attractive mix of impressive, high value homes with parkland and open farmland adjoining. This particular setting is also sought after because of the ease of access to amenities in nearby Nailsea with the town centre including the new Waitrose supermarket less than a mile distant. Nailsea also offers a comprehensive range of amenities while, good schools of all grades are also available close by including Nailsea’s nationally recognised ‘new’ secondary school. The facilities at Budgens in Wraxall are also within easy walking distance and The Old Farmhouse is gentle stroll away.
For the commuter good road connections are available to other nearby centres with the City of Bristol just 8 miles away. Junctions 19 and 20 of the M5 (both within 6 miles) allow easy access to the country’s motorway network and longer distance commuting is facilitated via the main line rail connection in the neighbouring village of Backwell with direct services to Filton - Abbeywood and beyond to Bath and London/Paddington (120 minutes).
To summarise, statements of excellence cannot begin to do justice to the property, which really should be viewed at the earliest opportunity. Call Hensons 7 days a week and we will be pleased to take care of arrangements for you.
