Offering highly flexible accommodation over three storeys, this handsome property is conveniently positioned at the end of a long private driveway within this superb enclave in the heart of the ever popular Village of Yatton Keynell. Converted in 2008 and thoughtfully improved by the current owners since, this handsome property perfectly combines the charm of a bygone era with all of the current conveniences one could ask for, effectively promoting modern and easy living in many ways. The ground floor of this characterful home exudes quality, with zoned under floor heating flowing through the entirety beneath the lovely stone flooring. A spacious hallway provides access to a large storage cupboard, a cloakroom / W.C, and a sizeable home office that benefits from high speed data cabling (as does the rest of the property) - Important for those who need a powerful and reliable connection when working from home. There is also a well-proportioned sitting room that features impressive floor-to-ceiling windows at the front, wooden flooring, and a 'Morso' multi-fuel burning stove that is encapsulated within the attractive bath stone chimney breast. At the rear, a wonderful open-plan kitchen / dining / family room runs the entire width of the property, boasting partially vaulted ceilings that give a real feeling of space within. With three sets of patio doors in situ this space is often found bathed in natural sunlight thanks to the dual aspect ratio, and when the cooler evenings draw in, an efficient 'Jotul' multi-fuel burner is at hand to ensure that this place is always warm and cosy. The bespoke kitchen comprises of hand built solid wooden units and a marvellous solid granite worktop surface that extends onto the kitchen island / breakfast bar. It comes fully equipped with a range of good quality appliances inclusive of a dishwasher, Neff 5 burner induction hob, double oven, warming drawer, integrated fridge and freezer. The plumbing for the washing machine, water softener and oil fired boiler are found in the separate utility room.
The first floor supports two double bedrooms that offer generous amounts of storage, in addition to the 'main' bedroom and a sleek family bathroom that comprises of a matching four piece suite with underfloor heating. This dual-aspect main bedroom was initially designed to be two rooms but has instead been redesigned to accommodate a large dressing area (that encapsulates an abundance of storage space), as well as a fantastic en suite bathroom that features two heritage sinks, a roll top bath, separate shower, heritage W.C, in built ceiling speakers, and even space to fit freestanding furniture if desired!
Ascend up to the top floor and you will find a fourth double bedroom that again comes complete with an en suite shower room (with Matki shower), plenty of storage space, and a dressing (or study) area. Like many of the other bedrooms in this home this storey showcases a wealth of period character, including exposed wooden beams and lovely vaulted ceilings.
The neatly gravelled long driveway abuts a long level stretch of lawn, and provides an enormous amount of parking with further potential available to create extra parking by converting some of the front garden, if required. Secure wooden double doors at the end of this driveway lead to more parking, the double garage, and the stone built unconverted stable block. The garage benefits from loft storage, as well as light, power, electric remote doors, and a fitted work bench for those who enjoy crafts and require a workshop space. The separate traditionally built 5 bay stone barn has been revived to an excellent standard and now provides a solid platform from which someone could choose to develop their own studio or ancillary accommodation if required (subject to any necessary consents). This stable block benefits from light and power and opens out onto the rear garden which is level, enclosed, and notably private - an inviting space for all of the family to enjoy year round. The pretty plants, flowers, shrubs and small trees that are housed within the planting beds all seem in excellent health thanks to the bright and sunny South facing aspect. The spacious indian sandstone patio can of course be accessed directly from the kitchen and offers space enough for plenty of people to relax out on when hosting.
The property is within walking distance of all the excellent local amenities in the village, so a stroll to the pub or a trip to the shop to grab some milk are all exceptionally easy to do.
