Set in an idyllic rural location, surrounded by countryside, yet only a short drive to Bristol, High Banks House really is the best of both worlds. A large detached family home set in a good-sized plot with gardens all around, suited perfectly for families with many practical aspects including; well-proportioned room sizes, lots of living accommodation, double garage and plenty of parking.

Further to that, the kitchen has newly fitted appliances and there are solar panels on the roof generating income.
The accommodation briefly comprises; welcoming entrance hall, large sitting room with log burner and 'Bath stone' surround and doors to the side garden, large study, open plan kitchen/dining room with newly fitted integral appliances and granite work surfaces, sun room with bi-fold doors to the garden, utility and cloakroom. Upstairs the large landing provides access to all bedrooms with the master and second bedroom benefitting from en-suites and all bedrooms with built in storage.

For people with green fingers, there are six raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse and outside store. The driveway provides plenty of parking and there is also a double garage with two electric up-and-over doors.
