DESCRIPTION If you would love to experience country living in a stylish and extremely well-presented extended four-bedroom cottage with a large garden, plenty of parking, surrounding field views and situated on a single-track country lane keeping it nice and private then this is the property for you. Approached via a gated access to the large, block-paved off-street parking area there is then a further gate into the extensive front gardens. A block-paved path then leads through trees and shrubs to property's storm porch, a very handy area with an open frontage. The main entrance hall to the property is then in the middle of the house. To the right gives access to a good-sized living room (currently being used as guest bedroom) with an attractive brick fire surround and hearth with wood mantle over. To the rear of this room a door leads through to the utility room with a door to front aspect and also a well-appointed bathroom comprising of white WC, basin and bath with shower over. This living room/bathroom combination would incidentally make an ideal 'annex' for an elderly relative or other family member giving them their own entrance and bathroom. To the left of the entrance hall leads into a sizeable dining area which then follows through to the superb kitchen extension. This L-shaped combination gives plenty of space and light, with not only windows out to the lovely garden but also French doors out to the patio area and Velux roof windows above the kitchen area. The kitchen has a range of attractive white shaker-style wall and base units with work surfaces over, two built in ovens, halogen hob with extractor hood over, space for American-style fridge-freezer and further French doors out to the property rear and those lovely field views. With attractive wood flooring and a nice island with a breakfast-bar area this room is sure to be heart of the home and will be a great place to take advantage of the summer months. To the rear of the dining area there is a further room which can be used as a further lounge or family room or indeed a study. Off this room is then a further store room with worktop surfaces and a further door to the rear patio and rear field views. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, three having very useful built-in cupboard storage and the master bedroom having the luxury of a lovely en-suite with white WC and basin and double shower with Velux roof window over. The family bathroom is again very well presented with white suite comprising square basin with storage under and attractive tiling splashback, designer towel radiator, and a shower over the bath. To the outside of the property the private garden is a sizable area comprising lawn areas and mature trees and shrubs making this a very pleasant place to enjoy and then patio areas surround the house and a further advantage is to the rear there are lovely open field views.

DIRECTIONS Travelling on the A370 from the Bristol direction turn left into the Brockley Combe Road at the traffic lights. Continue through Brockley Combe for about two miles and the road will become Downside Road. As you pass the Tall Pines Golf Club on your right, a couple of hundred yards up on your left is a sudden turn into the narrow lane of The Batch. Follow this winding lane only a short distance, ignore the left turn and just carry straight on and Prospect is found on the left-hand side just before you turn the corner. PLEASE NOTE : THE BATCH IS A NARROW LANE WITH A TIGHT TURN AT THE TOP. AS THE ROAD IS A CUL DE SAC THE VENDOR HAS SAID IF SOMEONE WOULD LIKE TO DRIVE UP AND HAVE A LOOK THEN THEY ARE MORE THAN HAPPY FOR YOU TO TURN AROUND ON THEIR LARGE PARKING AREA.
SITUATION Backwell is a suburban village south west of Bristol, on the A370 to Weston-super-Mare. It includes the hamlets of Backwell Common, Backwell Green and Farleigh. Nearby are Nailsea, Flax Bourton, Yatton, Brockley and Barrow Gurney. Backwell Lake is next to the road between Nailsea and Backwell and is just north of the railway station. The village has a long history, appearing in the Domesday Book in 1086 with the name 'Bacoile' meaning 'The well back on the hill'. The well is still in existence. Many residents of Backwell commute daily to Bristol by car via the A370, bus or train - the railway station has a direct service to London. Backwell is close to the M5 motorway and Bristol International Airport. The airport serves both domestic and international routes, and is one of EasyJet's hub airports. Backwell has excellent junior and secondary schools; the largest junior school is Backwell Church of England Junior School, which is highly praised by Ofsted and performs consistently well in the league tables, and secondary school Backwell School, consistently features high in the league tables for GCSE results, and is recognised as one of the best state schools in North Somerset.
WE HAVE NOTICED Altogether this is an outstanding property situated in an ideal country setting. Field views, large garden, extremely well presented throughout, close to main transport routes and in the school catchment area for the well-rated Backwell secondary school. (It must be noted that this idyllic property is situated within ear-shot of the Bristol International Airport but luckily this causes minimal disruption)
