Property Description

Situated in a discreet location, yet in the heart of the village is Swellwood. The property was originally a 1960's build that has since been architecturally remodelled in 2015 to create a spacious, light, and modern home, designed to make the most of the far-reaching views.

Swellwood has accommodation over two floors with a delightful outlook to the village, church, and rolling countryside to the coast. You enter the property into a welcoming entrance hall with storage cupboards leading into the large kitchen/breakfast room, which is filled with natural light and has bi-fold doors to the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units with granite worksurfaces and underfloor heating. A handy utility room is adjacent to the kitchen. The sitting room benefits from a large picture window overlooking the grounds and countryside views beyond and features a cosy wood-burning stove. A large bedroom with a modern en-suite completes the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, the master of which has an en suite shower room. There are two/three further bedrooms, one of which intercommunicates with bedroom two and would make a perfect room for a baby or dressing room.

The property is approached via a gated tarmac driveway leading to the double garage with an electrically operated garage door and electric car charging point. The side pathway overlooks the church and leads around to the rear gardens and south-facing rear courtyard. The rear gardens are large and slope gently down to level areas of lawn and herbaceous borders, herb garden, and several mature trees, including maple, acers, budlea, silver birch, copper beech, rowan, magnolia, and others. An archway in a high hedge leads through to the vegetable garden, with a small orchard to one side including cooking, eating apples and plums. From the garden and paddock there are superb views towards Wales.


Shipham is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a highly sought after village, nestled in the picturesque Somerset countryside. It is well served by first, middle and senior schools and is much sought after by those commuting to Bristol, as it offers all the advantages of rural living with many bridleways and footpaths, including the West Mendip Way which crosses the parish providing ready access to the hills and Mendip plateau, where there are extensive views across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast and Brecon Beacons beyond. Indeed, it is very well positioned for local transport links and the M5 motorway which is accessible via junction 20 at Clevedon, junction 21 at St Georges and junction 22 at Edithmead. Village facilities are available, including butcher/stores, garage, public house and further shopping facilities at nearby Winscombe and Cheddar. The new village hall (with its stage, sports hall, function rooms and kitchen) is a popular centre for a broad range of community events and activities for all ages. Private sector schooling is close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach, as are Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. In the state sector, Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) is nearby and for sports and recreational amenities, Churchill Academy is a drive away. The surrounding area is excellent riding country and is sure to appeal to equestrian enthusiasts and walkers. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to the mainline railway station at Yatton.

WE HAVE NOTICED... This property has been lovingly transformed by the current owners and has a different view from nearly every window, stretching towards Wales and overlooking the village church.

OUR VENDOR SAYS... We have had 10 special years, first creating and then living in this wonderful family home, with its outstanding views down the Bristol channel with glorious sunsets.
