Property Description
An attractive period 4 bedroom family home in a rural setting, overlooking the beautiful Yeo Valley on the northern side of the Mendip Hills. Formerly a gardener’s cottage, the property has been extended and sympathetically improved over the years, most recently with the installation of a stunning light and bright kitchen/family room with picture window and French doors to the terrace. An annexe has also been created, providing a further open plan bed/ studio room, shower room and independent access, giving flexibility for dual living or guest b&b accommodation. The house has wonderful gardens to the side and rear of the house which extend to over 1/3 acre affording far-reaching views over the countryside and towards the village of Ubley.

The house is approached via a quiet lane with a gravelled parking area to the front and a small front garden with walled lawn area, shrubs and trees. Double wooden gates and a pedestrian gate lead into the side of the property.
To the front of the house is a porch, with room for wellies and shoes and a window to side, which leads into the tiled main hallway, off which lie the principal rooms.

On the ground floor there is a well-presented, sunny, sitting room with a solid oak built-in bookcase and a Jetmaster open style wood burning stove. There are two sets of French doors along the width of one wall which lead out onto the terrace. These allow plenty of natural light to fill this calm and relaxing room.

There is a smaller cosy study/music room with a Morso fire woodburning stove and a window to the front, perfect for chilly winter evenings.

The wonderful open plan kitchen/family room, updated only 18 months ago, has a sunny aspect with a range of dark green painted units with granite worksurfaces and a butler sink, a 2-plate oil-fired Aga and a separate electric oven with LPG fired hob. The integrated appliances including a dishwasher and fridge/freezer and an island unit provides further storage. The washing machine is discreetly hidden in a range of fitted cupboards. This stunning room has ample space for a family sized table with a wide window seat, a further sitting area with views over the garden and French doors to both sides. Velux windows further lighten this space.

At the side of the property, in what was previously a garage, is an open plan sitting room/bedroom with high ceiling, bifold doors to the garden and, again, lots of natural light floods the room. Off this is lobby, with room for a kitchenette to be installed if required, and door to the front of the house. There is also a contemporary walk-in shower room as well as plenty of storage cupboard space. This is a perfect space for dual living/granny flat or a teenager. The independent access makes it perfect for Airb&b accommodation.

A downstairs cloakroom/WC completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

Upstairs are four bright double bedrooms. The dual aspect master has a shower room with walk-in shower WC and basin. There are three further bedrooms and a part panelled family bathroom with wooden flooring, bath, basin, heated towel rail and WC. From the landing there is access, via a ladder, to boarded loft storage space.
Excellent views are afforded of the surrounding countryside from both floors.

To the immediate side of the house and wrapping round to the rear is a terrace, with a southerly aspect and which is a real sun trap. This looks over the lawned gardens with apple trees and a veg patch. There are two sheds including a lockable bike shed and a hot tub clad in Swedish wood. The adjoining field was purchased by the current owners and this is partly left as meadow. The gardens, which enjoy a high level of privacy and in which are perfect for children to play, are surrounded by fields and wonderful walks can be enjoyed in the ancient woodlands close by.

Dewdown Cottage lies between the thriving villages of Ubley and Chew Stoke, in the parish of Nempnett Thrubwell, with Ubley Primary School, (approx. a mile away) and Chew Stoke Primary School (approx. 2 miles away). The popular Ring o’ Bells in nearby Compton Martin enjoys a good reputation. This thriving community also has pond, village hall and post office. Nearby West Harptree has a General Store with delicatessen, post office, church and pub. A further selection of shops and facilities are available at Chew Magna about 4 miles away. Nearby Ubley has a preschool and primary and is in the catchment for the well-regarded Chew Valley Secondary School. Private schooling is available at Wells Cathedral School, Millfield in Street and Sidcot Quaker School in Sidcot. There is also an excellent choice of private schools in both Bristol and Bath.
The area enjoys a reputation for outdoor activities with Blagdon and Chew Valley Lakes being on the doorstep for sailing and walking.
There is easy access to M5 via Junction 21 for Weston Super Mare and Bristol International Airport is only 6 miles away.
