A thoughtfully extended and beautifully presented detached bungalow set on a quiet and desirable cul de sac in the heart of Winscombe.
Subject to much improvement in recent years this contemporary styled family home offers both versatility and privacy and is situated just a short walk to the well regarded local primary school and village amenities.
Approached to the front via a smart Cotswold stone driveway which provides ample parking for a good number of cars and leads to a single garage. There is already a good amount of privacy owing to the well planted borders of the established front garden.
Entering the property to the side, there is an attractive reception hallway with smart modern decoration that leads through to a spacious and light filled 'L' shaped living room, which is bathed in natural from its large double aspect windows. Taking centre stage and providing a lovely focal point to the room is a chic recessed fireplace, inset with a gorgeous cast iron stove. The room is further enhanced by rich wood effect antico flooring and subtle coloured walls. The original kitchen has been relocated and extended to create a wonderful eat in kitchen/dining room with French doors leading our to a passageway to the rear garden. This stylish room is perfectly suited to family life affording plenty of space for the family to congregate at mealtime. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern white gloss wall and base units, topped with a solid wood counter top, and slate tiled splashback. The Geometric patterned floor contrasts with the kitchen units, adding details to the room and there is space and plumbing for an American style fridge freezer with a useful fitted cupboard.
The three bedrooms are positioned to the opposite side of the living space, the master bedroom which overlooks the wonderful rear garden comes complete with a walk through dressing area and a modern en-suite shower room. Bedroom two is another good sized double room also with a rear outlook, whilst bedroom three (also a double room) has a view to the side. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom which is fitted with a modern white suite and tiled spashbacks with a heated towel rail.
To the rear of the house lies the stunning rear garden which has been beautifully landscaped to create an oasis of colour with several wonderfully positioned seating areas dispersed within it to either take full advantage of the sunny aspect or indeed enjoy peaceful shade and recline with a good book. Situated adjacent to the house is a large patio area perfect for al fresco dining, with a shingle pathway leading to second sitting area to the rear of the garden. Skilfully and thoughtfully planted borders house established flora and fauna and there is a lovely summer house and garden shed for all your essential tools.
The North Somerset village of Winscombe was recently placed as the second best place in Britain to raise a family by family investment firm OneFamily (survey in 2015) and is nestled in the beautiful Mendip countryside within commuting distance of Bristol. Its atmosphere is one of bustling activity, with a variety of shops, professional offices and community facilities including church, doctor and primary school (www.winscombewoodborough.n-somerset.sch.uk). Winscombe is in the Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill-academy.org) catchment area for secondary education, which has recently been awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and also benefits from a modern sports complex, and there is also a dry ski slope nearby. Private sector schooling is also close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach. Country activities available within the area include horse-riding, walking on the Mendips and sailing on Axbridge Reservoir, and there are also several excellent golf courses in the area. The lovely cathedral city of Wells is a drive away, as is the famous beauty spot, Cheddar Gorge. As mentioned, Winscombe is within commuting distance of Bristol but also has good access to the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and the M5 at junction 21 to travel north or junction 22 to travel south. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to a mainline railway station at Weston.

Follow the road into the village of Winscombe onto Woodborough Road and with the Car Sales Garage on the right and the Co-op Minimarket on the left proceed straight ahead across the junction onto Sandford Road. Take the second turning on the right onto Well Close and first left onto Oak Road. Homestead Way is the first turning on the left and the property can be found on the right-hand side.
