Discreetly tucked away and
enjoying an idyllic outlook yet within a few minutes' walk of the hustle and bustle of Westbury village centre this four bedroom architect designed detached
house offers something more than a little different.
Nestled on Channells Hill a quiet backwater of
Westbury-on-Trym the house was designed in the 1960's by an architect for his
own occupation. He must have felt the view/outlook was the most important
factor as all of the main rooms benefit from the picturesque outlook over the
wooded Trym valley and neighbouring cottages rooftops. A feeling more akin to a
rural hamlet than a property within 5 minutes’ walk of Westbury village.
Approached via a drive providing off street parking for
several cars the house is set over a number of split levels so it can take
advantage of its outlook. The main front door opens at half landing level with
utility and external store area to one side and cloakroom on the other.
Continue up half a flight or stairs and you arrive on the top floor where the
four bedrooms and family bathroom are to be found. Three are generously
proportioned doubles that take in the outlook. The master bedroom has space to
create an en-suite shower room if desired. The fourth bedroom has window to the
side aspect and is a smaller guest double sized room or generous child’s
The lower floor provides the main living accommodation. The
living room features open fireplace and floor to ceiling picture window taking
in the outlook. Open plan to this room and up a couple of steps is the dining
area which in turn flows through into the kitchen. Beyond the kitchen a lobby
provides a further door to the front and another through to the rear garden.
Beyond the lobby is a study with workshop positioned beyond and to the front.
The rear garden is a delightful place. At the far
boundary the River Trym (more of a brook most of the time) meanders past
with the old stone wall of a neighbouring property providing a historic
backdrop. Adjacent to the back door is a patio area with access to an under-croft
storage area. Beyond this a level lawn occupies the central parts of the garden
with mature shrub borders, fruit trees and vegetable patch on a lower level.
The house has double glazed windows throughout, mains drainage and electric heating provision. Gas is available in the road but not into the property.
The house is located in the Trym conservation area. An enviable location right in the middle of this popular residential neighbourhood with a myriad of amenities literally around the corner. For families the back entrance to Westbury Church of England school is literally across the road.
