There is a utility room and lift to the first floor along with a beautiful oak turned staircase.

The fantastic styling and high specification continue to the first floor where there is a magnificent open plan living space with 3 feature roof windows designed to fully utilise both the light and 360-degree country views with opposing 'Juliet' balconies, log burner and contemporary kitchen. Two further well-designed bedrooms including the master suite with en suite, dressing room and 'Juliet' balcony. The Master suite also benefits from direct access to the garden via its own external staircase.

The Retreat is approached via a shared drive with electric gate onto a parking area with plenty of space for multiple vehicles.

The generous gardens surround the property. An attractive plant and herbivorous beds, lawned areas, play area, large flag stone patio area with separate staircase rising to the first floor living space. Storage out building and a pond and store/plant room that houses the 'biomass' fuel boiler.

The Retreat is in an extremely convenient, quiet and beautiful location, down a long drive, in a quiet backwater within 8.5 miles of central Bristol, approx. 0.4 miles to Pilning train station and Bristol Parkway Station. One of the many unique features of 'The Retreat' is that although you have a sense of rural bliss when you are at the property, you are also connected to the surrounding cities and beyond due to fantastic transport links.

The Seller informs us that the heating and hot water at The Retreat is provided by a Biomass Woodchip Boiler that was installed and commissioned in December 2014 and is able to claim on the Governments Non-Domestic RHI tariff in which payment is received quarterly for a period of approx. 20 years.

In the period April 2023 to April 2024 we received around £5,000.00 in RHI payments and the cost of the woodchip was £4,583.25 including 5% VAT charged.

The biomass system also supplies hot water to Foxhole Farm next door – this is a metered supply and is invoiced quarterly. We received payments from our neighbour at Foxhole Farm for the same period as above for his usage totalling £2,129.65.

The Biomass system is remotely monitored by Dunster Biomass who can alert us if there is a problem on the system. It is serviced annually.

Also to note – there is air conditioning in the main living area upstairs which in winter can provide additional het if required. Bedroom 3 downstairs also has an air conditioning unit fitted.
