Over 200 years old and in pristine condition with panoramic country views, Buzzard House is a truly special place to live.
Built as two cottages, Buzzard House has existed as a single dwelling for a number of years and recently was once again divided into two. The east and central part of the house now up for sale is a semi-detached property complete with beautiful period features and splendid countryside views.
A kilometre-long tree-lined driveway leads you through almost two acres of private land surrounding the house – despite this pastoral setting, the building is fully fitted with a zoned central heating system, solar panels and solar thermal tubes.
A flagstone floor entrance porch welcomes you to the property – from here you walk into the main drawing room with its galleried landing, shuttered windows, slate hearth fireplace and vaulted ceiling. Cosy in winter and airy in summer, this room is ideal for year-round socialising.
Adjacent is the dining room which leads to the farmhouse-style kitchen and breakfast room. A double Belfast sink, triple oil-fired Aga and further four-ring gas hob makes cooking here an absolute dream – with so much worktop space, a central island, window seat and room for a dining table, it’s perfect for hosting.
Behind the kitchen is an enormous utility room complete with a solid wood French dresser with oak worktops, integrated bread oven, Victorian rainwater collection filtration system, Belfast sink, boiler and space for washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. It also has a door to the rear garden.
Out here you’ll find an orchard with a variety of fruit trees, herb garden and a detached stone barn, currently used as a garage, with adjacent stable block, hay loft and tool shed. There are addtional outbuildings useful for storage.
Steps lead up to a walled lawn with crab apple hedging and a gate providing access onto the Tyntesfield National Trust estate.
Back inside on the first floor are the five beautiful double bedrooms (one currently a home office), a fully-tiled wet room and a further family bathroom.
The rural village of Wraxall, thought to be an Iron Age settlement, has a rich history – archeologists have discovered a Roman villa as well as other Roman features scattered throughout the valley.
Nearby Nailsea offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a modern shopping centre, Waitrose and Tesco and good schooling options. There are many private schools, the closest being the Downs School.
Golf courses Bristol & Clifton, Long Ashton, Tickenham and Clevedon are all reachable from the village, as well as various sports centres, country clubs and the numerous walks and bridleways through beautiful North Somerset countryside.
Within easy walking distance of Buzzard House is The Battle Axes, a Grade II-listed pub, which serves high quality food.
Bristol is just 20 minutes away by car or 45 minutes by bicycle. There are also many bus routes running to the city. Bristol Airport is easily accessible – it is a short 12-minute drive from the property.
