Lazy Acre is perfectly described; set in a tranquil and picturesque setting in the beautiful Chew Valley. The extensive and well maintained gardens surrounding the property offer an expanse of lawned area and a wide selection of mature deciduous and evergreen trees. The patio to the rear of the property is the perfect place for relaxing and appreciating the fabulous, wide-ranging views beyond the immaculate gardens.
As one of a small number of houses in this quiet cul-de-sac, Lazy Acre boasts generous living accommodation and would make a fantastic family home: the spacious entrance hall leads on to two receptions rooms, a dining room, kitchen and cloakroom. A conservatory backs on to the sitting room and a large utility room and store room complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs there are five bedrooms including a master with en suite plus a family bathroom with separate bath and shower. The property offers scope for further improvement subject to planning permissions being obtained.
There is an integral double garage and parking for several cars on the driveway.
The property is situated in the picturesque village of Stanton Drew, a popular village situated within the Chew Valley. Within the village, there is a small range of local facilities including a primary school, a public house, a church and a village hall. The village is also famous for its stone circles, these ancient monuments date from 3000 – 2000 BC and display the second largest stone circle in Britain.
The neighbouring village of Chew Magna has a good range of local shops including a well-stocked supermarket, master butcher, coffee shop, gift shops, travel agent, post office and a pharmacy. There are also four excellent public houses nearby.
The village’s situation in the Chew Valley offers commuters excellent access to the regional centre of Bristol which is 8 miles to the north and the Heritage City of Bath which is 13 miles to the east. The Cathedral City of Wells, which offers further facilities, is 17 miles to the south.
The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. A visit to Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake is highly recommended, as this modern tearoom/fish restaurant is owned by the same family as The Pony and Trap. The Mendip Hills, well known for their limestone features, provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.
Local Pre-school and Primary School both received Outstanding Ofsted Inspections. The Pre-school is run at the village hall and they have forest school one day during the week. The Primary School is small but is part of a Federation with Bishop Sutton Primary School. It is about a 200 metre walk away.
Chew Valley Senior School is a very good school and students are picked up currently at the end of Upper Stanton by coach, which is about a 400 metre walk from here.
Travelling through Stanton Drew from Chew Magna, turn left into Upper Stanton after the Druids Arms pub. Pass Stanton Drew Primary School on your left then turn right into Stanton Wick Lane. The Orchard is immediately on your left and Lazy Acre is the first house on the right.
