Langford Place, a quintessential Regency country home is approached via a sweeping driveway which immediately gives a sense of the elegant residence that lies ahead. Opening out, it reveals a handsome frontage with a symmetrical, neoclassical façade and gorgeous portico entwined with wisteria lending a welcoming country feel.

Craftsmanship and character is evident throughout the property; with exquisite roundel detailing on the woodwork and cabinetry, sash windows, shutters, panelling, detailed cornicing and architraves. All these features are seamlessly blended with modern bespoke joinery and fittings to create spacious rooms that are gracious but still enjoy all the comforts of modern living.

Complementing the house is a magnificent, private garden which is laid out to create 3 separate areas. Ranging from the formal, to a delightful tucked away terrace with pond, each is thoughtfully designed to enjoy many aspects of the grounds and capture the sun or shade as you wish.

An impressive, pillared entrance leads straight into the inviting reception hall with solid oak flooring. To the right is the dining room. Flooded with light from sash windows with attractive views to the front garden, this large room also has a stone open fireplace and charming window seat. To the right is the drawing room. With a triple bay window - which cleverly converts to doors to the pretty garden terrace beyond and marble fireplace this is a lovely elegant, yet inviting room.

Returning to the hallway, to the left is the breakfast/sitting room with fitted cupboards and shelves and views to the garden. A beautiful timber and granite fireplace with Jetmaster fire offers a cosy space for winters evenings. An archway leads to the professional style kitchen hand built by Neptune. With metro tiling, a black limestone floor, honed granite worktops, a Mercury gas/electric range and a feature solid beech block it also incorporates quality appliances such as a double dishwasher and Fisher & Paykel french door fridge freezer. To the rear is a door to the smart back lobby offering additional storage, work surface space and a cupboard for a washing machine and dryer. This space is completed with a downstairs w.c.

An impressive staircase sweeps up to a capacious first floor landing.

With a bay window overlooking the garden and far reaching rural views to the Mendip Hills beyond, the light and airy primary bedroom is accessed through a dressing area with lots of storage. It also has a beautifully fitted en-suite shower room, again with ample storage. There are 3 further spacious double bedrooms, all well appointed, with bespoke fitted wardrobes and one with en-suite. A family bathroom with free standing roll top bath, panelling and somerset oak floors completes the accommodation on this floor.

A further two large rooms are found on the second floor. These are currently arranged as a bedroom and a study/hobby room.

The final secret of Langford Place is it cellar. Tucked neatly behind an inauspicious door in the entrance hallway stairs lead to over 500 sq ft of additional storage space.

Outbuilding - a pretty detached garage has a studio above with dual aspect rural views and a fabulous, beamed ceiling. It would make the perfect space for teenagers or an office to work from home.

Outside - the private large front lawn is framed by vibrant borders planted with a mixture of herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees including a magnolia and flowering cherry. To the right hand side is a small wooded area - ideal as a play space/den and an archway through a yew hedge to a more formal area of gardens landscaped in a style more reminiscent of the period of the property. Behind here is a useful utility area with woodstore, compost bins and large garden shed. The third area of garden has a pond, is walled and paved providing the perfect spot for entertaining or al fresco dining. To the side of it is driveway parking for multiple cars.

Location - The popular and convenient village of Langford offers a popular public house, local shopping and social facilities with a more comprehensive range of shops available at the nearby villages of Congresbury and Wrington. There is a large, modern medical practice in the village and a handy petrol station and supermarket close by.
