About the Property

Grove View is a wonderful example of a perfect country home situated in an elevated position with far reaching countryside views.
Situated in one acre of grounds on Littleton Lane, this home is ideally located in a small hamlet of similar properties between the charming villages of Chew Magna and Winford, providing both a rural setting yet convenient access to local amenities.
The property has been sympathetically renovated over recent years by the current owner. This transformation has resulted in a substantial and elegant residence that seamlessly combines the comforts of modern living with the charm of traditional features.

About the Inside

Upon entering the house, you are greeted by a wealth of period details such as flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces.
The ground floor is tastefully decorated and offers a range of generous living spaces, including a bright reception hall with stairs leading to the first floor. To your right is an expansive triple aspect sitting room with fireplace and woodburning stove, plus an oak floored formal dining room with an impressive inglenook fireplace, also housing a wood burner. There is a family/TV room next to the kitchen with oak floors and a further wood burning stove. The well-appointed double aspect kitchen has contemporary appliances and ample storage as well as room for a large kitchen table. Additional rooms on this level include a large study/fifth double bedroom, a rear entrance hall, utility/boot room and cloakroom.
Upstairs, the accommodations continue to impress with high vaulted ceilings and lovely views of the surrounding countryside from every window. The master suite features a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath and walk-in shower. There is a second ensuite double with walk-in wardrobe and the spacious third double leads through to a converted loft room used by the current owner as the children's gaming / cinema room. The fourth single bedroom maximises the space afforded by the high ceilings with a bespoke built in mezzanine bed and fitted wardrobes. A modern family bathroom completes the upstairs.

About the Outside

The driveway leads up from the lane to the front of the house with a turning circle providing convenient parking. There is a double garage with electronically operated double doors. Above the garage is a loft storage area and at the rear there is a tool store. Adjacent to this, a large workshop includes a single bay carport at one end and a lean-to wood store at the other. The workshop had obtained planning consent to convert to a holiday let. We see no reason why this could not be reinstated if further accommodation was required. A garden office/gym enjoys far reaching views to the Mendip hills.

The gardens at Grove View are beautifully presented, primarily laid to lawn and fully enclosed by mature hedges, ensuring privacy and tranquillity. While largely flat, the garden gently slopes away from the house, adding to its charm. One corner of the plot accommodates a hedged vegetable garden with raised beds and a 15ft brick and timber greenhouse. A small orchard includes apple, plum and fig trees.
Both the house and the garden benefit from far-reaching rural views, enhancing the sense of space and connection to the countryside.

The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes, notable for its fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities, are close by as are the Mendip Hills, well known for their limestone features, and which provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.
