Mariners Close, Backwell £525,000

A substantial 4 bedroom link detached family home with the advantage of an attached 1 bedroom annexe that adds great flexibility to the already spacious, light and airy accommodation that has been updated and improved over the years with many very recent additions. The gardens are a further feature being of excellent size and the setting is quiet and away from any through traffic though, still close to the excellent schools and village amenities.

The accommodation includes a generous reception hall with parquet flooring, an updated cloakroom, a very pleasing living room that has a wood burning stove, a separate dining room that is next to the kitchen allowing scope to combine the two rooms to create a through kitchen - diner family - room. The kitchen is in as new condition having been recently completely refitted to a particularly attractive design with a number of bespoke features. The reception rooms open to a 22'4" x 11'2" (6.82m x 3.4m) conservatory that links the main house to the annexe. The annexe has plumbing and drainage for a kitchenette to be installed if fully self-contained living is preferred though, as is, this part of the house comprises a sitting room and a bedroom that over look the rear garden together with a full en suite bathroom.

The annexe may just as readily be used as space for a home office suite or by removal of the stud wall between the bedroom and sitting room as a larger additional family room. On the first floor, there are 4 bedrooms and the family bathroom and in keeping with every part of the house the light airy feel continues. To the side of the house there is a carport with a garage beyond and the rear gardens offer plenty of space with scope to enlarge the annexe if required (subject to any necessary consents), without any danger of materially reducing the size of the rear garden.

The setting is a real treat offering an established position away from any through traffic but ideally placed for all village amenities including the outstanding Infant (with adjacent nursery school), Junior and Secondary Schools.

Backwell is deservedly one of the most sought after villages in the county offering a range of local shops, sporting and leisure facilities, two good village pubs and easy access to picturesque open countryside and Backwell Lake. Furthermore, a wider range of amenities are available in neighbouring Nailsea including large Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets. For the commuter Backwell is very well placed with good road connections to the major centres in the area. Bristol is just 8 miles away via the A370 or using the excellent cycle route. Junctions’ 19 and 20 of the M5 are also both within 8 miles and a main line railway station stands on the edge of the village allowing daily long distance commuting with direct trains beyond Bristol and Bath to London – Paddington.
