This timeless Georgian family residence occupies a central village location in Congresbury, within a plot approaching two-thirds of an acre.

The elegant six-to-seven-bedroom property, named Clarence Court, offers a sympathetic mix of period charm with modern practical finishes and has a wealth of features that add character such as working shutters, parquet flooring, and beautiful cornicing and coving on the ceilings and walls.

North Somerset Times: The kitchen has a traditional look with solid oak units

Inside, the grand reception hall makes a strong first impression and gives an immediate sense of the scale of this property. The spacious dining room features a cosy open fireplace with bespoke cabinetry and shelving in the alcove. Period detailing is evident on the refined plasterwork ceiling and gorgeous tracery windows with views of the front garden. From here, there is access to two rooms that are currently arranged as a bedroom and sitting room with an adjoining shower room. Thanks to independent access, this space could easily be converted into a self-contained annexe or a work from home space. To the rear of the property is the kitchen which has a traditional look with solid oak units, granite worktops, an Aga, and a breakfast bar. Also on the ground floor, is a drawing room with an open fire and dual aspect windows with pretty window seats, plus there’s a study and a light-filled garden room too.

North Somerset Times: There is a summer house with a decked area

A grand staircase leads to a bright galleried first-floor landing, from where there is access to six bedrooms, each with lovely wooden flooring. The principal bedroom has a dressing room, an ensuite bathroom with a freestanding claw-footed bath, and French doors opening out to a patio. There are also four double bedrooms, one single currently arranged as an office and two further bathrooms. A welcome addition to the upstairs accommodation is a delightful roof terrace – a perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee.

Outside, the gardens feature large lawns, a wealth of mature trees including magnolia and yews, and pretty, well-established borders planted with shrubs. There is a summer house with a decked area and patios are dotted throughout so one can take advantage of sun or shade at different times of the day.
