This stunning Grade II Listed Country House enjoys a rural edge-of-village setting to the north of the market town of Chipping Sodbury, with excellent commuting links via Bristol Parkway (London, Paddington), the M4 and M5. It sits at the head of the most beautiful walled gardens, the grounds totalling circa 1.78 acres, with open farmland behind and panoramic views. Private and secluded, it combines formal areas with sweeping lawns and the more 'practical' areas secreted away out of sight. The current owners have been custodians of this fine old home for a number of years, lovingly restoring it from both practical and aesthetic points of view, in keeping with its inherent character and charm. There are many fabulous features, from the stone floor in the hallway and the main staircase, right up to the exposed beams in the attic rooms. Over four floors, it provides fantastic family and work-from-home space, with six bedrooms and six reception rooms, plus a garden room/conservatory. The master bedroom is en-suite and the drawing room has floor-to-ceiling French windows with Juliette balconies catching glimpses through trees of the surrounding countryside. At the heart of the house, a welcoming kitchen/breakfast room (with 'Aga') sits adjacent to the formal dining room and wine cellar. A super opportunity to purchase somewhere quite special, continuing its stewardship into the 21st century!
The hamlet of Westend borders the village of Wickwar, enjoying beautiful countryside surroundings - all within walking distance of the Holy Trinity Church, the public house, social club, café, and even a micro-brewery. M4 J18 is 8.7 miles south east (via Chipping Sodbury) and M5 J14 is 4.5 miles to the north-west. Bristol Parkway (London-Paddington 1 hour 10 minutes) is 11 miles south-west.
