Gorgeous Grade II listed historical house on the edge of bustling Backwell and Cleeve. Tucked well away from the main road, Perry Orchard is a triumphally private cottage abundant in period features and spaced over 2000 square feet.
From the second you pull up in to the generous winding driveway you are automatically swept into the past, parking in the ample front garden area, with a high stone door in front of you, you are tempted towards the stunning arched timber door. Inside you are charmed by the fabulous enclosed gardens which are rich with sweeping lawns, mature shrubs an incredible feature yew tree, that stand statuesque and beautiful on the plot with its stretching branches reaching out with pride.
This very pretty cottage, is believed to be some 400 years old with some additions of course added through time. The solid oak door leads into the entrance hall with a spacious shower room and stairs leading the first floor. From the hallway there is plenty of room for all family members to grow, with a fabulous drawing room having beamed ceilings and one of the most impressive inglenook fireplaces we have seen, this has its own seat, flagstone hearth and priest hole. Leading up to the sitting room where another superb inglenook fireplace with wood burner hosts the room with cosiness and comfort. There is another staircase here leading to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The family room is very attractive indeed, overlooking the courtyard at the back with a feature square bay window and open brick fireplace, this room is ideal for dinner parties with the kitchen/breakfast room conveniently next to it enjoying integrated appliances and breakfast bar. The utility is spacious and perfect for a busy family, with a walk-in pantry and access to the rear courtyard, with a garden room overlooking the garden and terrace in front. There is also an additional boot room and stores which is currently unfinished and ripe for someone to stamp their own mark on. From the hall the stairs lead to the main landing area, with two generous double bedrooms overlooking the gorgeous gardens, with a separate bathroom with shower and panelled bath. All in all this fascinating cottage is a very well balanced house with one of the most generous gardens in this area being south facing and around 0.48 of an acres, private and wrapped around with a stunning stone wall.
This is a perfect quintessential cottage for those who love something a bit different.
Please note there is existing planning to amend the unfinished room - please find this information on North Somerset council website
