urrounded by beautiful countryside and just over three miles from Bristol city centre, Kempes Close is the perfect place to live if you love the great outdoors but also want the convenience of city life.
This expansive five-bed detached property is situated in the village of Long Ashton, which has its own high street and a scattering of amenities, pubs and cafes.
Walking in through the front door you’ll find the first reception room to your left, the second directly behind it and a huge open-plan kitchen and dining space leading on from the entrance hall. The kitchen is fully-fitted with many storage units, wood-topped work surfaces, an oven, gas hob and a central island offering breakfast bar-style seating. There’s more than enough room for a full-sized dining table, as well as a comfortable sitting area in this kitchen.
Large glass sliding doors flood the place with natural light and give easy access to the covered balcony and terrace – ideal for hosting summer dinner parties and eating outside.
Follow the steps down from the balcony and you reach the south-facing garden. Next to the house is a paved area and the rest is lawned, with mature trees at the bottom of the garden offering privacy whilst beautifully framing the view of North Somerset’s rolling green hills.
On this ground floor level is the gym, sauna, shower room and indoor swimming pool which is fitted with a Fastlane current machine and also has patio doors giving access to outside. Behind the swimming pool is a media/cinema room – making this house the ideal entertaining venue.
On the split first/second floor are four of the bedrooms, with bedrooms one and two having access to another covered balcony, and an en suite and separate dressing room for bedroom one. An additional family bathroom is shared between the other four bedrooms – the last bedroom is found on the top third floor.
