The Old Library is a beautiful character packed family home that has been part of the fabric of Wrington village life for centuries. Dating from 1829 it is reputed to have been a village reading room, a sweet shop and a bric-a-brac shop in its former days. Now it is a versatile and convenient terraced family home, offering accommodation of real period character, sympathetically combining modern amenities with period charm. It occupies an unspoilt position in the heart of the conservation area, great for the centre of the village, overlooking the village green and within a level walk of schools and amenities.
The Old Library offers an interesting, versatile and sizeable footprint of almost 1300 sq ft, rare in a property of this age. It briefly comprises; entrance hallway, living room with open fire, smart contemporary 23' kitchen/dining room with wood burning stove, play room/possible downstairs bedroom, downstairs WC, three good sized bedrooms, a very well appointed family bathroom and a large landing which has been used as a study area. The property is warmed by gas central heating and as mentioned offers numerous character features including the open fire and woodburner, sash windows, shutters, window seats and some flagstones. Outside the property has a sun trap of a paved private rear courtyard, perfect for barbecuing and a table and chairs, with some raised herb beds and climbing plants. Here you will find an attached good sized stone built store where the washing machine is kept, with a Belfast sink, power and light.
The village of Wrington is enduringly popular, not least for the fantastic community spirit and schools of quality, but also because of the amenities it offers; its convenient access to transport routes (for Bristol, Bath, Weston-super-Mare and the M5 motorway), and for lovers of walking, with some of the most beautiful and varied countryside anyone could wish to find.
The Old Library really is an unmissable opportunity in this sought after North Somerset Village, and its fantastic character and space mixed with its convenience for the modern family make it a real opportunity for the right buyer. We would recommend an early viewing. EPC rating D.
Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington (www.wringtonsomerset.org.uk) is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset.

Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk), also recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (with transport for local children provided daily), and which also benefits from a modern sports complex open to the general public. Further schools, both state and private, are at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and the Chew Valley. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles.
