This beautiful detached Victorian Villa occupies a private position on the cusp of the town of Keynsham. It has been the subject of an extensive and meticulous renovation by the current owners, which included a two story extension, replacing the roof, new plumbing and wiring, full bespoke double gazed sash windows and all new facilities.
The house retains a charming period feel with a number of impressive features including open fires, bay windows with shutters, stripped pine floorboards and picture rails. It is however the grand proportions and light that really make this a stunning house. The large bays, plethora of windows, exceptional ceiling heights both on the ground floor and first make this a very special property indeed.
Much of the renovation work has been focussed on changing the house from the original Victorian layout into a more family orientated design. The owners have opened up many of the rooms, which has created a lovely flow throughout the property and it enjoys excellent access to the gardens through its many doors.
The heart of the home is the kitchen. This has been fitted with modern units dressed with a Quartz worktop and under-floor heating. It is integrated with appliances, pantry units, an induction hob and breakfast bar seating on the large island. There are bi-fold doors from here on to the patio and garden. This room open’s onto the dining room which has glass doors opening to the front reception room. The boot room, which is accessible from the outside, houses a back-up fridge freezer, there is also a downstairs bathroom with shower and storage. The two alternative reception rooms, both with under-floor heating, have again been opened up, but are divided with glass doors to allow more intimate and cosy spaces if required. These rooms have twin marble fireplaces and further outside access. The lower floor has been reclaimed and now provides a superb cinema room and additional storage. The plant room houses all the new heating systems and is also fitted with extensive shelving ideal for drying.
The main bedroom suite is a charming triple aspect room with open plan shower room and dressing area as well as a loft accessed observatory. There is a guest suite with en suite bathroom and three further large bedrooms which share an opulent family bathroom.
One of the major reasons the owners purchased the house was its excellent location. Keynsham is a medium sized town, with all the major facilities as well as a Waitrose, restaurants, shops etc. There are good schools locally for all age groups and Keysham Railway station is only 0.2 miles from the house. This provides rail links to Bristol Temple Meads in 7 minutes and Bath Spa in 10 minutes from which you can reach London in 85 minutes. Adjacent to the house is the Keynsham Memorial Park, this well maintained park covers 26 acres and includes a café, tennis courts, play area and duck pond. The house is substantially elevated and well set back from the A4 and also completely screened by mature trees.
Abbey Mead is unique. It sits within its own walled garden and offers good privacy whilst also having great access to the many facilities around it. There is gated access and a private driveway with ample parking. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees dotted throughout. There are a number of well planned borders and secondary access to the side garden where more building or garaging could be placed subject to planning permission.
