Description

A charming and individual detached family home built circa 1925, situated on a gently elevated site in the lea of Brockley Combe with superb views across the valley with outstanding sunsets towards the coastline. This well presented home has been subject to considerable improvement by the present owners although retains many of its wonderful original features including solid wood doors and door furniture, pitch pine architraves, skirtings, picture and dado rails. Additional benefits include double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating. This striking property is approached via a grandly pillared porch with two large bay windows either side and a central balcony above, positioned to take full advantage of the delightful views. The general layout is equally full of character with the accommodation flowing from an impressive central, almost octagonal reception hall which leads to the sitting room, dining room, study, bedroom 4, bathroom and cloakroom. In addition, on the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room and large conservatory. A staircase leads from the study to the first floor accommodation which includes a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms one of which also has an en suite bathroom and w.c. The property is approached via a gently sloping driveway which in turn leads to the integral garage. The large landscaped gardens which amount to approximately 1/3 acre form a particular feature of the property and will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest. This is without doubt a deceptive property that can only be fully appreciated from an internal inspection. Viewing is strictly by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.

Location

Brockley is a rural hamlet between the North Somerset villages of Backwell and Cleeve. There is a well-supported farm shop with a more comprehensive range of shopping, social and recreational facilities in Backwell just a few minutes to the north.
Backwell is a suburban village south west of Bristol, on the A370 to Weston-super-Mare. It includes the hamlets of, Backwell Common, Backwell Green and Fairley. Nearby are Nailsea, Flax Burton, Yatton, Brockley and Barrow Gurney. Backwell Lake is next to the road between Nailsea and Backwell and is just north of the railway station. The village has a long history, appearing in the Doomsday Book in 1086 with the name "Bacoile" meaning, "The well back on the Hill". The well is still in existence. Many residents of Backwell commute daily to Bristol by car on the A370, by train or via bus. The local railway station provides a direct service to London and Backwell is within easy reach of the M5 motorway network with Bristol International Airport being a short drive away.
Backwell has excellent junior and secondary schools; the largest junior school is Backwell Church of England Junior School, which is highly praised by Ofsted and Backwell Secondary School is recognised as one of the best state schools in North Somerset.

Directions

Travelling out of Bristol on the A370, proceed through the village of Backwell towards Brockley. As you go up the slight hill (before Brockley traffic lights) you will see bollards in the centre of the road. Slow down and indicate left and you will see Greystones on the left hand side.
