Tower House Lane, Wraxall Offers in the Region Of £599,950

An extremely deceptive individual chalet style 4 bedroom detached family home enjoying a superb position found in one of the premier residential addresses in the county with very attractive, private level gardens of about 1/4 acre adjoining and overlooking picturesque greenbelt countryside with views as far as Tickenham Church towards Clevedon and towards Wraxall Church and Wraxall Hill.

Many of the properties in "the lane" were originally built in the 1920’s and 30’s as holiday homes by wealthy Bristol business people. Over the years, the vast majority of those initially small bungalows and houses have been very substantially enlarged, many to a much greater extent than this charming property. However, subject to any necessary consents, we believe that there is still potential for further enlargement if even more accommodation is required.

Solray was built in 1926 though, the original bungalow has been extended, updated and improved to create a generously proportioned home that offers 4 well proportioned bedrooms, two on the ground floor and two upstairs and including a principal bedroom with dressing area and en suite. There is a spacious further bathroom, 2 excellent reception rooms, a substantial conservatory, a charming kitchen and a utility room. In addition, there are a series of outbuildings including a large modern detached garage with loft above, "The Cottage" a garden kitchen (perfect for barbeque preparation) and a thatched gazebo.

While the well presented accommodation is very attractive, the gardens are a further particular feature with the forecourt and lawn at the front setting the house well back and offering good privacy. The rear garden offers various "rooms" that are defined by some superb specimen panting, meandering pathways and a series of patios together with a sun deck that is shaded by a pergola that adjoins The Cottage and has a bridge spanning a Koi pond. A further patio is accessed via a Chinese style gateway with a thatched Gazebo and the lawn and vegetable area beyond.

All in all this is an enchanting property that cannot be appreciated by merely driving by as the elevation that appears from the lane gives the impression of relatively small bungalow. The photographs and floor plan in this brochure do begin to change that impression but a viewing here is essential to really understand the extent of the accommodation.
