The Stables is a thoughtfully converted former Victorian carriage house perched on the edge of the 400 acres of public open space of Durdham Downs. The property saw dramatic architectural changes during the sixties and seventies when it was taken from its original Victorian use into the large family house that you see today. That conversion added great architectural interest and the recent refurbishment has added modernity and high quality materials throughout. It offers a surprisingly large square footage and incorporates many fun and quirky architectural elements. The accommodation spans two floors and the current owners have been sympathetic in their extensive refurbishment to include the use of solid oak throughout including floors, doors, staircase as well as the bespoke kitchen. The main lounge forms the centre piece of the accommodation and has floor to ceiling windows of a westerly orientation leading straight onto the large patio. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke solid wood units, designed to retain a minimalistic feel to this area. The recessed breakfast area and utility room, whilst open plan are cleverly designed to not be on show. The whole of the ground floor benefits from under floor heating. The first floor has five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have access to the west facing first floor balcony which enjoys a pleasant green outlook over the private gardens of The Stables as well as framing the back drop of Durdham Downs.
Situated on the edge of the 400 acres of open land that is Durdham Downs, the property enjoys spectacular and green views from many angles. Stoke Bishop is a popular area with those looking for a more rural feel but within striking distance of all the shops and amenities that Bristol has to offer. It also offers good access to the A4108 linking north to the M5 motorway and in turn to Bristol city centre and Temple Meads railway station offering high speed links to London Paddington in 90 minutes. The area is also popular with those looking to utilise the excellent state and private schools of which there are many in this locality.
The grounds are informally split into two areas and are a real asset of this property. The larger of the two gardens incorporates a large patio, which in turn leads onto the formal lawn and hidden play area with sunken trampoline to the rear. This walled garden is completely private. The second area is the secret garden; this is laid out to a well established vegetable garden complete with a plethora of fruit trees and flower beds. This is linked with the main garden through two lovely archways. Parking is provided with ample off road parking over the driveway which in turn leads to both garages.
