DESCRIPTION South Wood House is a beautifully presented and stylishly extended detached chalet bungalow with stunning views, set in a great location towards the head of a sought after residential cul de sac on the edge of the village.
There are lovely country walks almost on the doorstep, yet the property is within easy reach of the centre of the village with its unspoilt village atmosphere and facilities.
The property started life as a detached bungalow built in the 1960's and is now a contemporary home in every sense of the word, light, spacious and with stylish accommodation which flows well. Immaculately maintained, from the front the property gives little away of its fabulous extension at the rear. The stunning open plan kitchen/diner, with its underfloor heating and tri fold doors, opens out onto decking with amazing rural and garden views. The dual aspect living room with open fire has patio doors which also open out onto the decking. Downstairs there is the third bedroom, which could be an office or separate dining room, and tucked away next to it is a downstairs WC.
Upstairs the master bedroom is "wow" in every way with its beautiful windows from floor to vaulted ceiling, its Juliet balcony and stunning views over the garden to the village and countryside beyond. The master bedroom shares a superb modern bathroom with the second double bedroom. There is eaves storage in both bedrooms. The property is double glazed with gas fired central heating, underfloor heating in the kitchen, log fire in the lounge and is stylishly decorated throughout.
Outside there is a neat block paved driveway and landscaped front garden, with parking for numerous vehicles where there is space for a campervan or caravan if needed. There is access to a link detached single garage where the current vendors have installed drainage and hot and cold running water at the rear with the thought of creating a utility. The mature back garden has been tiered and designed for ease of maintenance. Mainly laid to lawn there are four apple trees, a cherry tree and raised beds for vegetables. The garden also includes a small wooded area which could offer fun and games for adventurous children or perhaps provide an exciting opportunity for a treehouse. The property also comes complete with greenhouse and insulated summerhouse which has light and power.
DIRECTIONS Taking the A38 south from the Churchill traffic lights continue up the hill passing the turning on your left for Rowberrow, take the next left into Shipham after the petrol station. With the entrance for the village hall on your right you will find Beech Road on your left. Number 26 is near the top on the right hand side. You are welcome to park on the drive.
SITUATION Shipham is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a highly sought after village, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by first, middle and senior schools and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with many bridleways and footpaths, including the West Mendip Way which crosses the parish providing ready access to the hills and Mendip plateau, where there are extensive views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Brecon Beacons beyond. Indeed, it is very well positioned for local transport links and the M5 motorway which is accessible via junction 20 at Clevedon, junction 21 at St Georges and junction 22 at Edithmead. Village facilities are available, including butcher/stores, garage, public house and further shopping facilities at nearby Winscombe and Cheddar. The new village hall (with its stage, sports hall, function rooms and kitchen) is a popular centre for a broad range of community events and activities for all ages. Private sector schooling is close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach, as are Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) is nearby and for sports and recreational amenities, Churchill Academy nearby. The surrounding area is excellent riding country and is sure to appeal to equestrian enthusiasts and walkers. Bristol International airport is nearby and access to the mainline railway station is at Yatton.
OURVENDORSAYS A perfect house in a perfect village! We love seeing the wildlife in the garden, its quiet here and we have great neighbours.
WEHAVENOTICED We were seduced by the open plan kitchen and the fabulous master bedroom with magnificent views. We love the doors along the back of the house opening out onto decking which must be a fabulous entertaining or relaxing space in the summer. There is also plenty of scope to add an ensuite to the master bedroom and create an additional window to the second bedroom so that it take full advantage of the dazzling views.
