This interesting two- or three-bedroom home has a lovely location in a village to the west of the Mendips, writes James Higgins
This intriguing home is arranged across three levels and features three bedrooms and a generous cellar. The village of Banwell is to the east of Weston-super-Mare which is the area’s largest town. It sits on the western edge of the Mendip Hills, a few minutes’ drive from this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The property is tucked away down a quiet residential road in in the centre of the village. Banwell is a sought-after village given its proximity to beautiful countryside. The nearest motorway interchange is eight-minutes’ drive from the village which provides fast access to north Bristol. Bristol city centre is just over a half-hour drive away.
On the ground floor there is a dining/family room, a bedroom or sitting room, a bathroom and a hallway. There are steps from the hallway up to the first floor where there are two double-bedrooms, a landing/study and a shower room in the eaves of the property. There is a separate staircase that leads down from the dining/family room to the kitchen in the lower ground floor. The rest of the lower ground floor features a study, a utility, a store and a cellar.
The dining/family room is a generous L-shaped room with triple aspects. The sitting room is across the hallway and has solid oak fire surround, a slate hearth and an inset wood-burning stove. The hallway has Karndean-style flooring and recessed spotlights. The kitchen has fitted white gloss units with solid wood worktops and a breakfast bar with a peninsular unit.
The bedrooms have partially sloped ceilings; the master bedroom has two Velux windows whilst the other double bedroom has a large aspect at the end of the room.
There is a large private driveway (large enough for three cars) which has controlled gates onto the road. There is not a garden at present but there is plenty of space at the front of the property to facilitate the creation of a courtyard space.
