The Dell has served as a longstanding, happy family home for this term and now offers an incoming purchaser a chance to conduct a complete renovation project. It cannot be ignored that other neighbouring, cottages, perhaps originally of similar size, have been significantly extended and we suspect that this property offers the same potential, subject to all necessary planning consents. One of the most predominant features of this very special cottage is a delightful orchard garden (the overall plot measures some 0.37 of an acre) adjoining and offering direct access to National Trust farmland opposite. This sale offers no onward chain and is therefore available for immediate acquisition.
Lower Failand is a particularly sought after rural village on the outskirts of Bristol within North Somerset. Church Lane proves to be an enviable, tranquil position within the village beneath the spire of St Bartholomew's Church. Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s world-famous suspension bridge is four miles distant providing direct access to Clifton Village and Bristol City Centre. Local amenities include a farm shop (on Portbury Lane), post office/general store, public house, village hall, cricket pitch and church within one mile in the village of Failand. Some more comprehensive facilities, including high street banks and supermarkets are within three and a half miles at the nearby towns of either Portishead or Nailsea. Bristol City Centre is situated approximately five miles away with Temple Meads railway station offering direct communication with central London. Lower Failand itself is situated near Junction 19 of the M5 motorway allowing excellent links to the national motorway network. Bristol International Airport offers daily flights to Europe and can be found approximately 10 miles to the southwest. A choice of golf courses can be found within five miles as well as David Lloyd Leisure Club and Chorus Hotel & Country Club. The property is ideally located for those pursuing outdoor activities including golf, horse riding, walking and cycling. Lastly, the area is particularly well served for schooling in both the state and private sectors including most notably The Downs School that is within 1¼ mile of the subject property.
