The ground floor also offers a large sitting/dining room which boasts a beautiful stone fireplace and inset log burner. Stairs to the first floor can be found from the side of the kitchen and they lead to a spacious first floor landing. The first floor offers two double bedrooms, both of which benefit from built in wardrobes, both bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom.
The gardens at the property run to side of the house, mainly laid to lawn they also offer a patio area which is perfect for entertaining or alfresco dining. To the back of the gardens there is a further coal shed and separate shed as well as an area which has been used by the property as a vegetable patch for 25 years or so (note: this area is not on the property's title deeds), there is also a communal garden that the owners are able to access, at no cost. The property also comprises a garage and parking space which can be accessed via an arch way from The Street.
The village of Chew Stoke is one of the most sought after villages in the lovely Chew Valley, surrounded by glorious green belt countryside and within a walk of Chew Valley Lake.

The property can be found along The Street which is accessed via the hump back bridge which also passes over the waterway. Number 8 can be found a little way along The Street.
