DESCRIPTION What an extraordinary, beautiful, character property; no wonder it has been in the same family for the last 50 years! This home is filled with the warmth and charm you would expect from an eighteenth century cottage, but what you don't expect are the fabulous gardens stretching up the hillside into woodland with a private rear driveway, garaging and stunning views. The house is home to inglenook fireplaces, beams and a feature staircase and offers spacious reception rooms and bedrooms. It is a property which gives little away from the cottage exterior at the front, where you are in the heart of bustling Banwell; at the back of the house you are transported into another world, an absolute haven for gardeners, nature lovers, or families wanting their own adventure space.
This lovely home captures your heart from the moment you step into the entrance hall with its exposed brick fireplace and log burner. The two inglenook fireplaces are at either ends of the house in the main reception rooms, the most impressive of the two is in the sitting room which also houses a log burner. The sitting room is an impressive 18ft long and is a warm and inviting heart of this home. The smaller inglenook is in the dining room. This room can effortlessly accommodate a table and six chairs with ample room for other furniture. The kitchen and study/garden room span the width of the house at the back and open out onto the patio from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the garden. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke units and extends into a breakfast area which also looks out over the garden.
Upstairs is as unique and full of charm as downstairs, with its four individual bedrooms, exposed beams, and windows framing stunning views from all aspects. These three double bedrooms and single bedroom all share a family bathroom.
OUTSIDE This remarkable and lovingly maintained garden, with its many contrasting areas, will be an exciting adventure for the next owners. The extensive lawns are interspersed by colourful borders, shrubs, mature trees, and seating areas to catch the sun and enjoy the breathtaking views across to the Bristol Channel and beyond. The kitchen garden provides potential to grow your own fruit and vegetables, there is space to keep chickens, and there are a number of sheds, a summerhouse and a greenhouse. At the top of the garden a driveway sweeps in from the back of Banwell, through the woodland owned by this property, to the double garage and workshop, where there is parking for numerous vehicles. The plot stretches to about an acre in total.
