Homefield is a fine example of a period home that has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated to an exacting standard and situated on the main road on the western fringes of this popular village and within the conservation area. With origins dating back to the late 1600s, the property still retains much of its original character and period features such as panelled doors, shutters, dresser, fireplaces, sash windows and the like. It was originally owned by St John de Churchill who then sold it to the Marquis of Bath in the early 1700s. The addition of a two storey Georgian extension by Lord Bath created a desireable gentlemans residence. In 1910 Lord Bath sold Homefield to the local farmer for £450 plus £4.50 to include the wood rights.
Homefield is now a beautiful family home ready to move into with a luxury kitchen and breakfast room that has doors opening on to the terrace and gardens, two sitting rooms with fireplaces and wood burning stoves, study, dining room. Upstairs there is a Master suite with a superb vaulted ceiling in the bedroom and bathroom. There are 3 further large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside there is a double garage, plenty of parking and lovely gardens that extend to just under 0.4 acre with established mature fruit trees and shrubs.

The local rail station provides regular links with the inter-city network, and there is a regular bus service along the A370 to Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare, with a useful park-and-ride scheme at the end of the Long Ashton bypass. Access to the M5 motorway at Clevedon is but a short drive, and Bristol International Airport is around 3.5 miles away. Nearby recreational facilities are to be found at the leisure complex adjoining the secondary school, whilst golf courses are available at Downside, Long Ashton, Failand, Tickenham and Clevedon.
We wish to advise that the four west of England Local Authorities Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol City, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire are working together to produce a West of England Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) which will set out a prospectus for sustainable growth to help the Region meet its housing and transport needs up to 2036. A draft of the plan is available to view at https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/so-welep-uploads2/Item%209%20-%20Joint%20Spatial%20Plan%20COMBINED%20DOCs.pdf and while by no means finalised the draft depicts approximate routes for new road schemes and housing development in the area.
