Church Cottage is a charming and quirky property, nestled by Portbury St Mary’s Church, minutes away from Portbury village. Believed to date back circa 1640, it is well located to take full advantage of rural living yet within easy striking distance of both Bristol and Portishead.
Situated toward the end of a tree lined lane, the property benefits from a lovely outlook over the neighbouring church taking the benefits of living in the country as well as the convenience of the proximity to local amenities.
The quirky internal accommodation has been well cared for and improved during the current ownership and is spread out over two floors. Bursting with character features with exposed stone walls, flagstones, exposed beams and open fireplace, the property is also wonderfully adapted to modern living.
Complete with original flag stone flooring, the main hallway sets the scene immediately and welcomes you through both living rooms on either sides or directly into a conservatory currently used as a dining room with views over a large private garden overlooked by the Church. Access to the two off street parking spaces may be done via the wooden gate at the end of the garden.
The large kitchen has been fitted with white base and wall units, double sink, wooden work surface and large Leisure hob with 3 ovens. Adjacent is a convenient laundry room with wooden floor and walls units providing the luxury of further storage.
A few steps lead to a cosy snug room with the original staircase to the first floor.
The main living room benefits from a large inglenook fireplace fitted with a large Godin Colonial wood burner and dual aspect windows. This reception room leads on to a further large study room. There is also a convenient storage room and cloakroom adjacent to the conservatory.
The most recent staircase leads to a large bathroom fitted with a three-piece suite, two large bedrooms with exposed beams, exposed stone walls and high ceilings. The main bedroom has been fitted with a convenient 3 door wardrobe and a second family bathroom is conveniently located adjacent to it as well as a smaller study room which could also be used as a third bedroom
