Steeped in history, this charming former coach house exudes character in abundance. Set within the grounds of the former Tockington Hill House Estate, this prestigious coach house has, as it’s backdrop, Silverhill House; a building that has held many purposes including a school until the early 1990's..
Its elegant Georgian frontage exhibits exposed stonework, an attractive bay window, mullion windows and a classic Georgian-style oak front door. Period stripped backed oak floorboards adorn the hallway and open-plan reception area which encompasses the sitting and dining room. Flooded with light, the sitting area offers the perfect family space. A feature fireplace with white painted surround provides the room’s focal point. The dining area is as multi-functional as it is spacious with one corner currently used as a study area. Adding additional reception space, the garden room enjoys pleasant views of the side courtyard garden and benefits from terracotta-style floor tiles and UPVC glazing. The kitchen provides a contemporary contrast to the period detailing throughout the rest of the property. An array of white gloss units blends effortlessly with the wood-effect work tops. The kitchen comprises: sink with mixer tap over, integrated oven and hob with extractor hood over and plumbing for washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.
The upstairs landing is both generous and flexible in space. A loft hatch with ladder gives access to the attic which runs across the entire property adding potential for conversion, subject to planning. On the landing further light is added from skylights in the roof. The master bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom also enjoys integrated storage. The family bathroom offers large shower, WC, sink and vanity storage unit.
Rudgeway is well served by strong local communities in both Almondsbury, providing a local primary school, community shop, church and excellent pub as well as the larger town of Thornbury with its wider range of facilities and outstanding secondary schools (both state and private). Further afield are both Bristol and Bath. Communications are excellent with access to the M4/M5 approximately 3 miles away and Bristol Parkway station 6 miles away which offers access to London Paddington taking 90 minutes.
The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of plants and shrubs. To the side, a fabulous courtyard enjoys a southerly aspect and proudly displays the original flag stones once found within the Coach House itself. This walled garden has a distinctly Mediterranean feel with flowerbeds and pot-plants. The property also benefits from a detached garage as well as additional driveway parking for multiple cars.
