An absolute one off! Take a look at White Hart, a three bedroom 18th century terraced cottage of singular character and charm set over three floors in an elevated position in Banwell with stunning associated views. It has a fascinating history stretching back for hundreds of years and is believed to have been one of Banwell's popular village hostelries, The White Hart. Features do still exist from this time, including vaulted barrel storage areas on the lower ground floor, yet there are little of the allowances you usually have to make for a period older building, indeed it has an integral tandem style double garage, it has well proportioned bedrooms, and it has living accommodation large enough to suit the needs of the discerning modern buyer. Set over three levels the living space briefly comprises; on the ground floor; entrance hall, living room with wood burner, dining room also with wood burner, and kitchen. Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom and downstairs the lower ground floor has access from the front, both pedestrian, via an entrance door, and vehicular via the large remotely operated roller shutter door. This leads to the integral tandem style double garage (a huge benefit in the High Street) with its excellent associated store rooms, utility room and WC area. To the rear of the cottage is an attractive landscaped garden, terraced for ease of maintenance and providing some stunning countryside views when at the top deck. The setting is very quaint, in a lane the off the main road in the village. It really is a fantastically convenient spot, great for local schools and amenities, as well the commute to Bath, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and the M5 and, for lovers of walking, the surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful and varied anyone could wish to find.
The main garden is accessible from both the ground floor and the lower ground floor. Outside the kitchen is a newly laid decking area and great sun trap (staircase down to lower ground floor) and a crazy paved patio. Steps flanked by borders lead to mainly level lawn with a well stocked border to the side. There is a gravel area beyond.
Steps and a gate lead up to a decked area right at the top with a border beyond... the views are fabulous! There are lots of plants here including evergreens, climbers, herbs, shrubs and roses.
This cottage has it all, character, space, move in and unpack accommodation, great gardens and garaging! We would highly recommend an early appointment.
