PROPERTY DESCRIPTION "An extremely pretty house, we could immediately see Hillside’s potential to become our perfect home," says the current owner of this stunning period property in the village of Paulton. "Originally four cottages built in 1802, the property is now one house providing versatile accommodation for easy family living."
"The property has historically been converted to a very high standard," the owner continues, "whilst retaining the unique personality of the original cottages. We were told what is now the garage was once upon a time the local shop. There is a wonderful old fireplace, wooden beams, and iron hooks in the walls The high ceilinged sitting room area is simply stunning, and the kitchen full of character, while an elegant feature staircase spirals up from the dining room to the spacious upper floor. With an abundance of heritage charm, the house is full of nooks and crannies, so it truly feels like an adventure living here!"
"What’s more," continues the owner, "the property offers extremely flexible accommodation due to our conversion of surplus storage space into a beautiful self-contained annexe: the property could be split according to needs into a four bedroom house with two bedroom annexe or a five bedroom house with one bedroom annexe, so there would even be potential for two families to live here separately should the new owner wish to let the annexe to tenants." My son loved having his own part of the house when he returned from university.
The location too has much to offer. "Right on the edge of the village and backing onto farmland and open countryside, the situation of the house could not be more idyllic!" says the owner. "We love to walk along the water to the canal basin, or down to the village ,five minutes in the other direction, where the supermarket, library and other village amenities are all within easy reach."
"This is a lovely house for parties and barbecues, with plenty of room for entertaining and overnight guests. We have had up to 200 guests on occasion, with 20 people sleeping over!"
"The sitting room gives the impression of being mostly windows, so offers a fantastic view of the garden."
"We will greatly miss the house itself. If we could pick it up and take it with us to our new life, we would!"
"The garden is extremely private so is perfect for summer entertaining, and with the covered porch we can keep the barbecue lit even in the British summer rain!"
