As one of the earliest and most recognised dwellings in Wrington, Gothic Cottage dates back some 300 years and was once the home of the village blacksmith. The local stone elevations and clay tiled roof are steeped in tradition, whilst internally the cottage effortlessly blends its unique period charm with an eclectic modern day style to make the house a truly one off and thoroughly enchanting home.
Offering so much more than originally meets the eye, the adaptable and intriguing ground floor rooms offer incredibly versatility. On entering the property into the enticing hallway, to the left is a light filled ground floor reception room which could be utilised as a dining/music room or perhaps even a third bedroom if required, whilst to the right and very much the crowning glory of the house is the stunning and spacious living room which features a beautiful historic inglenook fireplace, which is constructed of local stone with an inset cast iron wood burner. Adding further drama to the room are wonderful exposed timber beams and a hidden staircase that rises to the first floor accommodation. From the living room a door leads through to a sleek modern kitchen which provides an interesting contrast in style to the period character and features an excellent range of contemporary units and appliances. Beyond the kitchen is a superb 22ft dining/sun room with doors opening onto the attractive and private courtyard garden, there is also a handy downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor you will find two good sized double bedrooms, with a very well appointed family bathroom and large walk in cupboard area. The property is warmed by gas central heating and as mentioned offers numerous character features including the aforementioned woodburner, deep windowsills, beams, and old wooden doors to name but a few. Outside the property has a sun trap of a paved private rear courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining complete with a small pond, and here you will also find an attached stone built outbuilding and garden shed.

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.
