This incredibly impressive detached executive home is in the sought-after village of Failand.
DESCRIPTION With Clifton and the rest of Bristol just up the road, Owen Drive offer purchasers a perfect balance of town and country. With stunning views over meadows and a generous, private west facing garden, the house is fit for a number of purchasers. Inside there is a light and open hallway leading to a formal sitting room with a feature wood burner for cosy nights in and access to the kitchen. The kitchen/diner has 'wow factor' and is a real family space with a huge area for dining, whilst the kitchen area offers a modern sleek range of base, drawer and wall units, breakfast bar and integrated appliances including dishwasher and fridge/freezer and two sets of double doors leading out onto a beautifully maintained decked area overlooking the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a utility where you will find the boiler and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a very useful internal store room where the oil tank can be found and rear access to the garden plus integral access to the very well organised double garage with electric roll top door, electricity, light and storage above. The ground floor is finished off with a downstairs cloakroom and stunning floors throughout. Upstairs the property is absolutely flooded with light and space. Bedrooms one and two are currently combined into a stunning master suite with dressing area, fitted wardrobes and views towards the National Trust's Tyntesfield estate. The master bedroom also benefits from a beautiful beautifully appointed shower room en-suite. Bedrooms one and two, whilst currently combined, could very easily be reinstated as separate bedrooms. There are two further bedrooms, both with built in cupboards and both double! The family bathroom has a deep bath, perfect for a long much-needed soak. Outside, the property sits on a generous corner plot with very private west facing garden which is laid mainly to lawn with a decked area from the kitchen. There are established borders and exotic plants, making this garden a place to sit back and enjoy. The whole is complemented with double glazed upvc windows, plenty of parking, loads of storage, views and presented with no onward chain complications.

SITUATION Failand is a village that has two separate parts. Failand itself is on the B3128 Bristol to Clevedon road, and is the newer and larger part. Lower Failand, a mile away, is the original village (shown as Fayland on old maps). Lower Failand can be reached by single track lanes only. The village is home to a post office with general store, a pub (The Failand Inn), an observatory, a church, a well-used village hall and has a very active village social life.

The X6 bus runs to Bristol city centre about once per hour, via Clarken Combe, Bower Ashton and Hotwells. Lower Failand is on the National Cycle Network. Route 334 provides links to Clifton in one direction, and Portbury and Portishead in the other, linking to routes North and South. There is Easy access to the M5 and Bristol International Airport is approximately 6 miles away.The nearest primary school is at Flax Bourton (2 miles) with several secondary schools to choose from including St Katherine's School, Ham Green (2.4 miles) and Backwell School (2.7 miles).

OURVENDORSAYS We have had 13 wonderful years at 1 Owen Drive and would not be moving had it not been for an opportunity to build our own home on a small-holding very nearby. A long-held dream of ours! We have loved the space and light in the house, and the sunsets from our garden. Failand is such a lovely village, with enchanting woodland and lane walks literally from our doorstep, yet only a short distance from all that Bristol has to offer. It is a bit of a hidden gem.
