An impressive five-bedroom detached family house that has been updated and improved for the current owners who have created a very comfortable home that blends traditional style with contemporary features and design thinking. The property occupies the prime position in this exclusive, private, award-winning, and much aspired to development enjoying an open outlook over a parkland setting and views at the rear of adjoining greenbelt countryside.

The Grange at Flax Bourton is an exceptional location with just 14 high quality detached houses arranged in the almost 5-acre parkland grounds of the former Victorian Grange. Needless to say, there is a tremendous feeling of space and great privacy with each house set in a garden of very good size. The Grange was converted to six luxury apartments at the same time as the houses were built but the developers, Bovis Homes took great care to preserve the aesthetic with broad sweeps of lawn, meandering drives and many specimen trees. The location is outstanding and only 6 miles from Bristol city centre.

The House: Number Seven stands in possibly the most attractive position of all the houses here and the present owners actually moved from another house in The Grange when this property became available some twelve years ago so that they would have the benefit of the light, southerly outlook over the picturesque adjoining countryside and the views across to Tyntesfield and the National Trust land on the far side of the valley.

The house is beautifully built with Cotswold Stone elevations, dressed stone mullion windows and high roof lines in a timeless classic style. The property has always been well kept but over the last twelve years the property has also been enhanced, updated and improved. Although the accommodation has been enlarged, there is also consent for further extension behind the garage if required.

The accommodation is light, airy and flows extremely well with the welcoming reception hall leading to all main ground floor rooms and to a cloakroom. The traditional half return staircase rises from here to the upper floor and has a walk-in storage cupboard beneath.

The 22’4” x 17’ (6.8 x 5.18m) dual aspect living room enjoys an outlook over parkland to the front and to the south facing terrace and rear garden. There is a recessed wood burning stove and open access from here to the fully glazed conservatory, (Pilkington K Solar reflective blue glass), that has been a very successful addition to the original living space really taking the house into the garden and perfect for sitting and enjoying the view with French doors opening directly to the terrace.

An ample study is arranged to the front of the house, quietly away from the living room and the kitchen diner.

The fabulous 22’4” x 19’9” open plan kitchen – diner – family room is a real heart of the house space that again, takes advantage of a dual aspect with views to the front and rear. The kitchen area has been entirely remodelled and is fully fitted with a suite of wall and floor cabinets together with a matching island that offers a very social space with provision for bar stools. A 4 oven Aga cooker has concealed extraction above that also serves the inset ceramic hob with a built under over-grill. There is an integrated dishwasher and provision for an American style fridge freezer while granite work surfaces that match the island are extensive.

The dining area is marginally recessed creating a feeling of intimacy with a mullioned window to the front. A stable door and mullioned window overlook the terrace and rear gardens and a further door virtually adjoins the back door to the garage that has an integral utility area with further fitted cupboards, plumbing for a washing machine and additional appliance space.

On the first floor the part galleried landing leads to an upper hall with a built-in linen cupboard and hatch access with ladder to the vast, boarded attic area with lighting. The attic provides more than enough space to add upper second floor rooms subject to any necessary consents.

The original layout of the house offered five comfortable bedrooms and that remains unchanged. However, one of the upgrades made in the last 12 years has been the addition of a good dual aspect sitting room – games room or playroom off the third bedroom with lovely views. This playroom may just as easily be used as a charming double bedroom with the adjacent room becoming a dressing room or an en suite or both.

The playroom has recessed storage space and a hide and seek eaves space while every original bedroom has fitted wardrobes.

The family bathroom is an excellent size and the full suite includes a bath and a quadrant shower enclosure with contrasting ceramic tiling.

The principal bedroom suite is superb with a very generous bedroom overlooking the rear gardens and countryside beyond.

The adjoining dressing area has a suite of fitted wardrobes and open in turn to the spacious en suite shower room that has also been fully refurbished in recent years with another contemporary suite including a glazed shower enclosure and twin basins with under floor heating.

Outside:
The entrance to The Grange is certainly impressive with a wide pillared gateway opening to a meandering drive – when arriving please follow around to the left. The road way meanders through the parkland and arrives ultimately at this property which stands at the head of the ‘close’.

The private drive of the house provides parking for a good number of cars and leads to the attached DOUBLE GARAGE with a motorised remote-controlled door, a second garage door, a utility area, light power and plumbing and a personnel door to the rear.

Lawns flank the drive and a path and gate give access to the rear.

The rear garden is a further particular feature of this very fine family home. A full width riven paved terrace adjoins the back of the house with doors leading out from the conservatory and the kitchen - dining room.

The garden has been designed for ease of maintenance – ideal for the busy family, with well-kept lawns and easy borders. A deck has been built on the far side of the garden to allow outside sitting with a little shade on the hottest midsummer days from the established hedge behind. Mature trees, shrubs and hedges define the boundaries and the garden takes full advantage of the sunny southerly aspect. A garden shed stands to the side of the terrace with a Play house nearby and then tucked away on the opposite side of the house there is a further built in garden store.

The Village:
Flax Bourton is a tremendously popular small village that straddles the A370 between Bristol and Backwell.

There are many significant houses in the village that were built by Bristol merchants in past centuries because it was such an easy carriage journey back to the City.

Today we rarely ride by carriage, but Bristol is still extremely easy either by car, bus, train or bicycle using the SUSTRANS cycle route. The mainline railway station is the neighbouring larger village of Backwell offers good services to Bristol, Filton-Abbeywood, Bath and direct trains to London-Paddington.

Flax Bourton offers a pub and a very good junior school and there are good independent schools nearby including The Downs, while a wide selection of independent schools are available in Bristol, mainly in Clifton which is a 10-15 minute drive away.

Backwell offers a selection of village shops and a wider range of amenities are available in Nailsea including a large Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets, Doctors and Dental surgeries, a pedestrianised shopping centre with nationally known and smaller independent retailers, banks and professional offices.

Though well placed for the commuter with junctions 19 and 20 of the M5 less than 6 miles away, Flax Bourton is surrounded by pretty North Somerset countryside with lovely walks and outdoor leisure pursuits available in the area.

Reviews

  • "Definitely the best local agent" Parkers are very knowledgeable about the local area and were definitely the best local agent we saw when viewing various different properties. When we ended up buying our house through them, they were very easy to deal with and Lisa did a brilliant job at keeping us up to date with everything, meaning one less stress to worry about. Thanks to all!"Mrs B, London, Oct 2019
  • "Very happy with the service" I have been very happy with the service I have had from Parker’s. They have found me a very suitable tenant and are always on hand to deal with any problems. Thank you Juliet and Kate."Mrs T (Landlord), March 2020

  • "Very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier" We used Parkers for the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one and have to say that they were very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier than I thought. They knew the exact kind of property we were looking for and we weren’t disappointed with what they found us. 5 stars from us."Mr and Mrs F, Cleeve, Feb 2020
  • "Grateful to all the staff" We really appreciate your support through the moving process. The chain started off very smoothly but then became quite challenging. Parkers were pivotal in stabilising the chain and looked out for all parties to ease the moving process. We are particularly grateful to all the staff"SR, Dec 2019
  • "Once again excellent" Having used Parker’s several times over the years, we were pleased to find that the service provided for our recent house sale was once again excellent. Regular contact, updates and chasing issues when necessary helped ease the stress. We would not hesitate to recommend Parker’s and use their services in future."Mr J W, Nailsea, Nov 2019
  • "Very helpful" The whole team at Parkers were very helpful at every stage of the journey that has finally seen Mum moving."Mr W, Nailsea, Sept 2019
  • "We were very happy with your service" We were very happy with your service throughout, sorry for it being such a complex sale (although aren't they always!).You will be getting nothing but praise from us when people ask for estate agents in the area....I've already said to some people whom I've met who want to move to the area to "pop in" and speak to you."Mr B, Backwell, Sept 19
  • "You’ve all been great" Just to say thank you so much for all that you’ve done over the years regarding my property, with rental and now the sale. You’ve all been great and I am very grateful. I wish you all the very best"Mr S, Bristol, Aug 2019
  • "A gem of customer service" Once in a while, in this age of faceless call centres, you come across a gem of customer service. Parker's (at Backwell) were one such organisation. I'd wholeheartedly recommend them to sellers and buyers alike – the team represent the opposite of the poor rap estate agents get."Mr & Mrs G, Backwell
