The accommodation is highly versatile being arranged over three floors with a bedroom, shower room and hallway on the ground floor above which lies the main reception accommodation of sitting room, conservatory, dining room and kitchen which can be accessed at garden level to the rear while on the upper floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Externally the property has a richly stocked rear garden which is of good size and compliments the house perfectly and has the advantage of a useful and sizeable garden store.
To the front the driveway is approached through double wrought iron gates and is brick paved which in turn leads to a double garage.
Marksbury is a sought after village location. Polmear has a desirable position in the heart of the village away from main road traffic and close to the popular village primary school and village hall. Marksbury is in the catchment area of Wellsway School at Keynsham and has a co-operative store and petrol station for day to day shopping while a wider range of amenities are available at the nearby town of Keynsham. The village is on the edge of the Chew Valley with its renowned recreational facilities and the cities of Bristol and Bath are within easy commuting distance.
