RH-18165-property 4 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom

A spacious detached family house, full of character, set in a brilliantly convenient location that is more or less a ten-minute drive from the centres of Thornbury, Chipping Sodbury and Yate!

This detached cottage was built in about 1890, hence its thick stone walls and immense sense of character. In the 1980s it was extended, and then in more recent times the current owners (who have really enjoyed living here for a good number of years) have greatly improved the place (including the installation of “planet-saving” solar and heat pump technology). The cottage has wonderfully spacious accommodation that includes four bedrooms of good size and a large full-length living room, the well-appointed kitchen is open-plan to the dining room, and even the entrance hall could act as a reception room in its own right. To one side of the cottage is a garden room (think conservatory but with a newly re-tiled roof) which can be accessed from front or back. The cottage also has a downstairs cloakroom and, oh, then there’s the bathroom .. wow … talk about palatial! There are covered sitting out areas (loggias) to both front and rear, off-street parking, and the rear garden is of a good size for a family: level, relatively secluded, not too big that it needs constant work but certainly big enough for most people, and with a large patio that attracts the sunshine all day long.

Is Rangeworthy the best-placed village in the West Country in terms of facilities? I think it has to be a contender! Having played around with Google Maps (admittedly not at “rush hour”) I can see that Thornbury, with all of its shops, amenities and leisure centre, is an 11-minute drive away, charming Chipping Sodbury with its pubs and restaurants is 10 minutes, and Brimsham Green secondary school in Yate, as well as the Tesco Extra store and loads of other shops, is 9 minutes. Even Katharine Lady Berkeley School in Kingswood is only 14 minutes away, and the M5 at Junction 14 can be reached in 12! There’s a local primary school in the village, a pub – the Rose & Crown – which is reputed to serve a very fine Sunday lunch (5-star reviews on TripAdvisor as recently as April 2024), and for those with a more exotic taste, the Spice Mahal restaurant (no prizes for guessing what style of cuisine it serves) is just along the Wotton Road and offers a takeaway service.
