North Somerset Times: The drawing room is full of period charm

The elegant family property, named Stowell House, is believed to date back to 1910, the high point of the Edwardian era and some years ago, the house was subjected to a comprehensive programme of modernisation. At that time the owners took great care to preserve the attractive original features, and although there is scope for some reappointment in the house, it is enriched with much charm and character.

North Somerset Times: Outside, there is a lovely traditional summerhouse

Inside, the grand reception hall makes a striking first impression with its moulded skirtings and architraves and original staircase that is attractively ornamented. The drawing room is full of period charm with its classic Edwardian-style fireplace, wide bay window, and detailed cornices. The dining room links the living space with the gardens via wide French doors and the large double aspect study has an outlook of the garden. The traditional kitchen/breakfast room is practically fitted and follows through to a utility room and onto a shower room.

On the first floor, there are four good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from built-in furniture, a concealed vanity suite and enough space to accommodate an ensuite shower room if need be. One of the other bedrooms has the advantage of access to the pretty balcony feature at the front.

Outside, the rear garden offers complete privacy and features a large lawn, well-established shrubs and a charming, traditional summerhouse. There is also a courtyard area at the side of the house.

At the front, the extensive private driveway provides ample space for parking and leads to the garage.
