Property Description

DESCRIPTION An impressive detached period house set within grounds of approx. 2.8 acres and situated in a delightful semi-rural position on the outskirts of Chilcompton. Surrounded by open countryside, the property offers versatile living accommodation, benefiting from an integral annexe and an attractive detached cottage. Dating back to the mid-19th Century, the house has established and well-tended gardens to the front and side, a private gated driveway and an adjoining paddock.

A door to the front of the property opens into the kitchen/dining room, added to the house in 2001. A well-proportioned dual aspect room, the kitchen is a superb entertaining space includes a walk-in pantry and a part-vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. Adjoining the kitchen is the sitting room, the main reception room in the house which has windows to the front and rear and a stone fireplace with inset oil-burning stove. An inner hallway accessed from the sitting room then leads through to a WC, a utility room (housing the boiler for the oil-fired central heating) and into a separate living room. Currently utilised as a self-contained annexe (with integral door), this section of the house can equally form part of the main residence. An additional reception room beside the living room then opens into a hallway, which serves two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen with utility room.

On the first floor, there is a generous south-facing Master bedroom which benefits from built in wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath. In addition, there are two further double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes and a separate shower room. There is plenty of storage available within the loft space which is boarded and has a pull-down ladder and light.  

OUTSIDE A five bar gate from Green Ditch Lane opens into a private driveway, laid to stone chippings, which provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and leads to the property and annexe. The mature and very well-maintained gardens are to the front and side of the house and enjoy plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Mainly laid to lawn, the gardens are enclosed by stone walling and include various apple trees, a timber outbuilding, a pergola and a large summerhouse. In total, the property is set within grounds of approx. 2.8 acres and incorporates a hedge lined paddock (approx. 2 acres), ideal for equestrian buyers or those with other animals. There is an additional section of garden to the western side of the property, which is currently allocated to the adjoining annexe and also benefits from plenty of sun.  

DETACHED COTTAGE In addition to the main residence, the property benefits from a most attractive detached stone cottage, formerly a dovecote barn and currently used as additional accommodation. The cottage could make an ideal annexe or holiday let, subject to gaining the necessary permissions. On the ground floor, there is a good size dual aspect sitting room and kitchen/dining room with access through to a utility room and bathroom. On the first floor, there is one double bedroom with feature fireplace which has fabulous views across the neighbouring countryside.  

LOCATION Chilcompton is a particularly popular village on the Mendip Hills, offering a range of local amenities including a Co-Op supermarket with off licence and Post Office, doctors' surgery, two excellent public houses, a café, petrol station with shop, church, primary school, playschools and is conveniently located for commuting between Wells, Bath and Bristol. There are five good comprehensive schools within easy reach and public schools at Downside Abbey and Bruton, with Independent Millfield School and Wells Cathedral easily accessible. There are good road connections to Bristol and Bath, Bristol Airport (35 minutes) and rail links from Castle Cary, Bath Spa and Bristol Temple Meads to London. Nearby Wells is the smallest cathedral city in England. It caters for most everyday needs, offering good shopping facilities as well as restaurants and pubs, a cinema, churches of most denominations, together with open-air markets every Wednesday and Saturday.
