Quintessentially English Grade II listed three bedroom country COTTAGE set in beautiful mature GARDENS providing a rural lifestyle, yet easily accessible to Bristol. Available mid October. One pet considered. The landlord has advised that the services of a gardener will be employed on a once monthly basis at their expense.
A beautiful country cottage, set in gorgeous mature gardens, as attractive and charming as you could possibly imagine. This Grade II listed home dates from the 17th century, yet offers comfortable living for today.
The charming accommodation amounts to some 1,408 sq ft and benefits from most rooms having a dual or triple aspect, unusual for a cottage of this age. The solid front door opens into the hallway with the sitting room to one side. This room has a lovely stone fireplace incorporating a woodburning stove. To the right of the hall is the dining room with inglenook fireplace, complete with an original bread oven. An attractive, double glazed conservatory has views over the glorious gardens and leads out to the rear terrace. A bathroom with separate shower cubicle is also located on the ground floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of cupboards and has an oil fired Rayburn stove (also responsible for hot water and heating) with a Rangemaster cooker. The kitchen door leads out to a pretty, enclosed courtyard surrounded by stone walling creating a lovely secluded place to sit with a coffee. The utility room is located here with plumbing and space for all the usual amenities.
An open tread, solid oak staircase rises from the dining room to the first floor open galleried landing. The master bedroom has exposed ceiling beams and rafters and an ensuite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms complete the first floor.
The cottage is located in a great semi-rural location, tucked away, yet easily accessible to the A370 for those wishing to commute to Bristol. The stunning garden is stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and trees, making it extremely private. To the front the garden is bounded by shaped hedging with flower borders and lawn. There is gated access to the gravelled parking area and to the left of the cottage lies a tennis court (not currently in use and in need of some refurbishment).
The village of Cleeve has a range of facilities including general store/newsagents, hairdressers, takeaway and restaurant. There is a primary school in Claverham and secondary schooling at Backwell. A public transport service runs to and from Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and Clevedon where there is an M5 motorway access point to London and the Midlands. There is a mainline railway station and a greater range of shopping facilities at Yatton approximately 1½ miles distant.
