This individual c1930s detached home sits in a commanding position on the highly sought-after elevated road of Tower House Lane enjoying superb southerly views over the valley and surrounding countryside. Enjoying a mature and private plot of c0.65 of an acre, the current vendor has gained recent planning approval to extend the property double storey to the side adding to the already spacious property, creating a unique opportunity for someone to put their own mark on a long-term family home. The property takes full advantage of its position with views from all the principal rooms in the house offering two spacious reception rooms, one dual aspect sitting room with access to a decked sun-terrace, family room which could be used as a formal dining room, plus a study, kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room and a beautifully constructed conservatory. glazed on three sides enjoying the magnificent views over gardens and treetops to the Dundry Hills. The first floor comprises four generous bedrooms all with built-in wardrobes or storage, with the master bedroom having the benefit of a dedicated en-suite shower room. In addition, there is a modern family bathroom and a further room which could be used as a nursery or additional study.
This home is approached via an attractive stone wall with a split driveway leading to the detached double garage with power, light and side courtesy door, and then sweeping upwards to a gravel driveway for several vehicles adjacent to the property. The mature gardens offer a variety of spaces for the family to enjoy from family entertaining to adventurous and playful children. The rear sheltered terrace accessed off the kitchen and conservatory over-look a level lawn with four steps up to a further secluded lawn set beneath the shade of mature pines that form a wonderful backdrop to the garden. There is also a wooded section of garden that winds down towards an ornamental fishpond, timber garden shed, green house and a further lawned area ideal for growing your own. A gravel path takes you to further lawn and terraced rockeries. Central steps take you towards the front door with 30sqm of two very useful under-croft storage areas.
