The vendors comment "Greenlands was built in the 1950s and has been a fantastic family home to us for 38 years but we feel it is now time to move closer to our family.
A large extension was added in 1988 to provide an additional bedroom and more than double the size of the lounge. Later a spacious conservatory was built leading from the very large dining/kitchen and has proved its worth by affording dining options and all year round open views. The conservatory roof comprises self - cleaning energy efficient glass with electric fanlights to be cooler in the summer and is centrally heated for the winter making it perfect for family life. It also benefits from a Travatine stone floor providing an attractive, durable surface a toilet and wash basin and storage room are also included within the conservatory making a very useful facility when working or lazing outside in the beautiful secluded garden. The family lounge is a good size and includes a jetmaster multi-fuel fire contributing to a really warm room in winter. Our children and friends used the lounge as a theatre to entertain us with impromptu shows! An alternative on a cold winter's night is to move to the attractive snug room with its gas fire to give instant warmth."
The vendors continue, "Upstairs there are four bedrooms each with their own open views. The master bedroom includes an ensuite wet room with an Aqualisa power shower with a separate WC room. The configuration of the bedrooms allows for two bedrooms to be closed off very useful when small grandchildren visit! The other two bedrooms have useful features like sliding mirror wardrobes and a beautiful bay window with panoramic views a vanity unit and built in wardrobe in the smaller of the two. Three of the bedrooms are fitted with Hilarys shutters. The family bathroom is fitted with an electric shower over a Jacuzzi bath."
"The garden is South facing and like a private oasis, not overlooked at all. It has well stocked flower and shrub beds with several ornamental flowering trees and a small, but productive vegetable garden. Within the garden can be found an attractive cedar wood summerhouse, a workshop (both with electricity), a log store and small tool shed.
There is ample parking for up to five cars on the driveway leading to the generous double garage a double wooden gate encloses the property."
"One of the best features of this location is that the countryside is literally on our doorstep. There are beautiful walks straight from our door to the Somerset coal canal basin, along the Roman road, across the field to the ha-ha footpath and over to Priston to the excellent Ring o Bells pub. The Pig hotel/restaurant is nearby and Vale House Kitchen, a bespoke country skills and cookery school is just down the road, as is the exclusive Balance Gym. Timsbury has an active community, with a doctor's surgery, a chemist, parish church, two shops including a post office, a primary school, the Seven Stars pub, a superb fish and chip shop and Connie's Tearooms and Bistro. The Conygre hall is the hub for the many sporting opportunities and also home to the local theatre group, Timsbury artists and a variety of other groups."
"Good access to Bath is complemented by the accessible park and ride services at Odd Down and Newbridge. Wells is approximately 12 miles away and Bristol some 13miles. The facilities offered by these three cities must be unrivalled in the UK!"
