A stylishly presented 5 bedroom detached period home. This spacious family residence is centrally positioned within the village of Compton Martin, part of the popular Chew Valley with its countryside walks and lake.
It is reputed that that the property was once a place of meeting before the Battle of Sedgemoor and therefore it remains one of the main historic houses within the village. Upgraded and extended within the existing footprint by the current owners, a great deal of care and attention has been paid to retain the character features typical of the property's origin including an inglenook fireplace with open fire, plus a further two fireplaces, each housing a wood burning stove. Discreet window seats are located around the house providing a view point to sit and watch the world go by. As illustrated on the floor plan, the accommodation offers a fabulous live-in kitchen/breakfast room with tiled floor and inglenook fireplace, family room which is located directly off of the kitchen and a characterful sitting room which in turn leads in to a fabulous Victorian style conservatory with views over the garden. Additional areas on the ground floor include a cloakroom and utility/boot room with integral access to the double garage.
The first floor can be accessed via two staircases creating the potential for an annexe or B&B with a separate entrance. Upon this level there are five very individual bedrooms, one with a room off that could easily be converted to an en-suite or dressing room. These are serviced by two shower rooms and a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom.
Compton Martin is situated in the heart of the beautiful Chew Valley. It is part of a small parish yet offers all the facilities generally associated with a small village such as a post office, public house, and village hall and parish church. A spring rises near the village church and feeds the village duck-pond which in times gone by used to power a paper mill and ultimately flows into the River Yeo. There is a choice of schooling nearby with primary schooling in Ubley. Access to the M5 motorway network is at Clevedon (junction 20).
The property is approached via a sweeping driveway with parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage. Beautifully maintained well stocked gardens encompass the property with sociable seating areas dotted around. Tucked away behind mature hedging, a kitchen garden provides established beds for those who enjoy self-sufficiency. Further landscaped borders adjoin the pathway leading to the conservatory and paved terrace area. Amongst the gardens a pretty, wooden summer house doubles up as a peaceful retreat, whilst a stone built gazebo with tiled roof offers a shaded area during the summer months.
