The Old stables is wonderfully positioned towards the end of the causeway in Congresbury with the glorious Strawberry Line, foot and cycle path just a short distance away. Occupying a discrete position hidden from the road, this truly unique property has been much improved in recent years by the current owners to create a sophisticated and family orientated home with a high degree of privacy and exceptional further potential.
Approached via a traditional five bar gate, a neat pea gravelled driveway leads to a large parking area which also gives access to a generous double garage with electric door and power and light.
Entering the house under an attractive tiled storm porch you arrive at a welcoming reception hallway, off which are doors leading to a ground floor cloakroom, utility room with an internal door to the garage and sitting and dining room, from the hallway the staircase also winds up to the first floor accommodation.
The original sitting room of the house is to the left of the hallway and features a lovely dual aspect and a handsome log burner, a perfect evening room it has a door to the rear that leads into an open sun room, and despite its more than generous size is a cosy room ideal for movie night and family time. To the rear of the hall a door leads into what was once the dining room of the property, however although still very much a great space for a dinner party the whole side and rear of the property has been superbly extended to create what is now a spectacular semi-open plan living/dining and kitchen area which is showered in natural light from the plentiful windows. Separating the dining area from the living/kitchen area is a wall which features a dual aspect fireplace that can be enjoyed from either side. Travertine stone floor tiles flow throughout the dining room and adjoining rooms uniforming them perfectly.
Continuing into the kitchen/living room you cannot help but be impressed by the immense natural light and the incredible outlook into the garden. The kitchen area which is set to the rear of the room is truly impressive, fitted with a substantial range of both wall and base units, it is almost a piece of art in itself. The contrasting chalky white and sage green units are complimented by a magnificent white marbled counter top with two separate island units providing additional food preparation space and casual breakfast bar seating for visiting guests. The kitchen which is a keen cooks delight is fully integrated with a seven-ring gas burner, with a discrete overhead extractor, four eye level ‘Neff’ ovens, two sunken Belfast sinks, larder unit and integrated fridge/freezers. There is also a separate utility room beyond the kitchen with addition units and plumbing for washing machine, tumble dryer etc, plus huge amounts of extra storage. Both the kitchen and utility room benefit from underfloor heating. The living room area has wall to wall windows that quite literally bring the outside into the room, and as previously mentioned benefits from the dual aspect log burner which creates a superb focal point to the room. In addition to everything these combined rooms have to offer there is also a separate home office/study, perfectly for getting away from it a bit and having some quiet time.
Moving onto the first floor, you will find the properties four well-appointed bedrooms along with the large family bathroom. Three of the four bedrooms feature quality fitted wardrobes, including the master bedroom which also benefits from a chic en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is of generous size and features a smart contemporary white suite and attractive porcelain tiles, there is a separate walk-in shower with aqua blue mosaic tiles, heated towel rail and tiled floor.
Outside, the grounds and garden are every bit as impressive as the house itself, supremely private the garden wraps the house on three aspects and enjoys a sunny south-westerly orientation. A large level lawn provides great recreational space for kids, whilst a spacious patio and garden room provides dining and seating space to entertaining guests. There are several useful outbuildings and sheds including a stone Finca with an outside kitchen and an enclosed kitchen garden with a plethora of productive raised vegetable and fruit beds. The garden also features a variety of established trees and shrubs which afford the house its incredible privacy.
