Property Summary

The position and layout of Pear Tree House make this a wonderful family home. The house is quietly located in the lovely village of East Harptree and was built approximately 16 years ago by Magenta Properties. With its central village location there is surprisingly a paddock and newly built stables should you wish to keep a horse or ponies. The garden and paddock extend to approximately an acre.

The house is approached via a pair of electric gates with plenty of parking in front of the house and double garage. The front door opens into an impressive double height central hallway which opens onto dining room and large sitting room, with an open fire, wooden floors throughout and views out to the garden. There is also a large cupboard and downstairs loo within the hall. The kitchen/breakfast room with its lovely tiled floor is well fitted with a central island, double ceramic butlers sink, granite worktops and a large free standing range. This kitchen area has flexibility to be used as additional snug/eating area as well as opening into a great playroom/study on one side. The playroom has french doors out to the garden and access through to the very well fitted utility room with exterior back door and large walk in larder.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms all with good sized built in wardrobes. The master bedroom has both a good size dressing area and en suite shower plus there is a further en suite shower room as well as a family bathroom. Two of the bathrooms have recently been fully refitted. A new gas boiler has also recently been installed.

The double garage also benefits from an office above it with heating. East Harptree also now has access to Truespeed internet for those wanting to work from home.


There are doors leading out from the sitting room and playroom to the terrace and garden beyond which has attractive well planted flowerbeds. Further to this there is also a small paddock with two newly built stables, a gravel parking area for a horse trailer and includes a tack room, haybarn, two large looseboxes plus a winter turn out area.


East Harptree is an old established village tucked away in the Chew Valley. It benefits from a local primary school, pre-school, church, a village pub The Waldegrave is a 5 minutes walk away, community shop, hairdressers and village club. (East Harptree was the original home to the "Great British Bake Off" a couple of years ago.)

Less than two miles away in West Harptree you will find a doctors’ surgery, dentist, post office and well stocked grocery shop.

East Harptree is well positioned for both independent and state schools with Wells Cathedral, Bristol Grammar, Clifton College QEH, Badminton and Chew Valley Senior School are all within easy reach.

Sailing can be found on the Chew Valley Lake and there are many Golf Courses nearby both at Wells, Mendip, Long Ashton and Bristol. For those interested in walking there are many great footpaths in the area with the Mendip Hills on your doorstep.

The re-furbished pub, The Litton, at Litton offers boutique accommodation, The Ring o Bells at Hinton Blewett and the Queen Victoria at Priddy make for friendly destinations. The Michelin stared restaurant the Pony and Trap can be found in the Chew Valley and not far away is The Pig so you are never short for an evening out. Theatres can be found at both Bristol and Bath.

Bristol International Airport is approximately 8 miles away, with both Bristol (14 miles) and Bath (16 miles) being neabry with easy access to and from the M4 and M5 motorways make this an ideal location.
