A really super three bedroom detached bungalow in tucked away location, perfect for the downsizers who still want to modernise a little bit! EPC rating D
DESCRIPTION This very well-proportioned three-bedroom detached bungalow is bursting with opportunities for those looking to do some cosmetic upkeep or more. Occupying a good size plot and hidden behind private gates, the bungalow is light and homely having a wide hallway, sitting room with pretty bay window, doors leading to the rear enclosed garden, kitchen with plenty of space for table and chairs, but having built in fridge/freezer, space/plumbing for washing machine and built in oven with hob. The kitchen could be splashed out on with a modern approach but currently is in working condition and has doors out to the rear garden. All bedrooms are double, offering lots of light and some built in wardrobes, with the master bedroom having built in wardrobes, cupboards and bedside tables, and its own en-suite shower room with electric shower whilst the bathroom is of good size. Whilst outside the property is approached over a generous driveway with loads of parking and a stunning front garden that is established and alive with greenery, around the back is a private gate to an enclosed garden, delicately crafted with an abundance of flowering plants and a gorgeous stone built pond which currently is home to Koi and gold fish. The garden is a haven for those that want a perfect blend of low maintenance and gardener's paradise. The double garage has an electric roll top door and electricity and light, ideal for storage, a car or indeed any additional rooms you might require. The whole benefits from double glazing, oil central heating and has 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
Despite being a rural village, Failand is very close to Bristol, and Clifton in particular. Clifton village is only 5 minutes drive from Failand, via Clifton Suspension Bridge. 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). Private schooling is at Wraxall and Bristol
DIRECTIONS From our Backwell office head towards Bristol on A370, after approx 1½ miles turn left into Station Road, Flax Bourton, go straight across at crossroads (B3130) & up Belmont Hill (B3129). Take left fork onto Flax Bourton Road then third turning on right into Jubilee Drive - the bungalow is on the right hand side tucked in the corner.
