A two bedroom period country cottage with double garage and attractive gardens set in beautiful countryside in Hewish. EPC rating F.
'Badgers House' is a 'chocolate box' period country cottage nestled in beautiful countryside in the popular village of Hewish. Wonderfully rural in its position but close enough to local amenities, Weston-super-Mare and transport routes, the property is in need of some updating. It does however boast a much larger accommodation than one would normally expect of a semi detached period cottage, having 19' kitchen/breakfast room, lounge with woodburning stove and a separate dining room/snug, along with two double bedrooms, family bathroom and a gardener's WC, downstairs study/possible bedroom 3 and conservatory. As discussed, the property is in need of some updating, however it is eminently liveable inside, indeed it is both double glazed and centrally heated. It is just that, in our view, any potential purchaser would probably wish to redecorate, and for those with vision, there certainly is a lot of scope for that.
It does however get even better... The position is an absolute delight! Badgers House is set in a beautiful plot surrounded by wonderful open countryside, it has delightful mature gardens to the frontage and rear, off street parking, and unusually for this age of property, a detached double garage with workshop attached. For those wanting rural living without being isolated, look no further! Offered with no chain, we highly recommend a viewing.
Our vendor says ... Badgers House has been in the family for 25 years and was bought as a 'downsize' cottage in a rural position. The area, outlook and views are simply second to none and the character of the property is fantastic. Indeed it has that lovely mix of being peaceful, however, the mainline trains, supermarkets and M5 are only minutes away. We will be incredibly sad to leave.
We have noticed ... One of the two semi detached properties (originally one big property) built we believe in the 1800's and owned by the same family for 25 years. It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful with fantastic countryside aspect and it crucially retains the character often stripped out of older character cottages. We feel that size wise it is much more than you would expect of a standard two bedroom cottage as it has the two reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room and to have a detached double garage! Very unusual... A beaut!
The hamlet of Hewish in North Somerset lies between the village of Congresbury and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare. Close by is the local pub The Full Quart, plus an Indian restaurant and primary school. There is a regular bus service to and from Bristol and Weston, with a bus stop just over the road. Both towns are easily commutable for work, and Weston-super-Mare has an excellent range of shops, social and recreational facilities, including a mainline railway station. The M5 motorway is literally just a few minutes' drive away, giving access to the national motorway network to the north and south. Bristol International Airport is also a short drive away, with both major airline and low cost carriers operating from there. The area around is well known for its beauty, with country activities including walking, sailing, fishing, horse-riding, dry ski-ing and sports facilities, all within easy reach.
Travelling towards Weston Super Mare on the A370 from Congresbury, pass St. Annes Primary school on your right hand side and then continue past Puxton Park on your left hand side. Take a left turn into West Rolstone Road and follow it for approximately one mile, the property can be found on your left hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale board.
