Bedrooms: 5
Blackdown Cottage is an immaculately presented Georgian property which has been tastefully extended to provide a spectacular family home. Lovely features sprinkled throughout such as exposed brick walls, recessed windows, traditional fireplaces, and exposed beams add character to this warm home. Perfectly balancing the spacious accommodation is a beautiful mature garden that has been thoughtfully planned to include many areas of interest and take in the spectacular far reaching views towards the Severn estuary.

A welcoming front door leads straight into an airy double height hallway giving access to the ground floor reception rooms. To the left is the sitting room, a lovely bright room that is full of charm with oak floors, exposed brick and plaster walls, traditional oak beams and deep alcove windows flooding the room with light. A handsome stone fireplace with a log burner provides the perfect place to enjoy cosy winter evenings.

A doorway leading off provides access to another reception room; currently used as a snug, this room could easily be a playroom or office and has a back door to a delightful terrace with pergola - the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco dining. Both rooms have satellite TV connection.

Returning to the hallway, a lovely double height airy space, a kitchen/dining/conservatory can be found to the right. Styled as a quintessential country kitchen, solid oak units, granite worktops, an oak floor and white metro tiling perfectly complement the butler's sink and electric AGA. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and chiller cabinet. Balancing this space is a substantial dining area with room for a large table. This opens out to a conservatory area with full height glass windows allowing for glorious views over the garden.

The ground floor is completed with a huge, shelved pantry, a utility room with storage, sink and space for a washing machine together with a downstairs cloakroom with w.c. There is also access via the utility room to the double garage with up and over electric door, extra storage, and off-street parking area for several cars.

Upstairs is a bright, light filled landing from which you can access the five bedrooms.

The principal bedroom suite has a wonderful Juliet balcony that opens out over the garden. This generous room also offers a large bank of fitted wardrobes, a seating area with room for a sofa and a fully tiled en-suite bathroom with useful additional storage space.

A family bathroom and 4 further double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room) one currently arranged as a home office ensure there is plenty of accommodation on this floor. Each one is individually styled but have all the charm and uniqueness that comes with this property, with pretty fireplaces and recessed windows as some of the features. In addition, most offer amazing views; to the garden, over arable land, and far reaching rural to the Severn Estuary and Wales in the distance.

Outside - the exterior spaces of Blackdown Cottage are truly exceptional. A quaint cottage style front garden with steppingstones is beautifully framed by hedging of mature shrubs giving the cottage complete privacy. To the rear the gardens have cleverly been designed to create several unique spaces. A delightful terrace area overlooks the attractive lawn, which is framed with mature, thoughtfully designed herbaceous borders. A natural pond has lilies and irises providing a peaceful spot and a sanctuary for wildlife. From here, an archway with grapevine leads to a wonderful kitchen garden area with summerhouse, raised vegetable patches, soft fruit canes and established fruit trees including apples and plums. The garden also has a useful garden shed and greenhouse.
