An eclectic and interesting attached cottage offering exceptional scope and potential for someone to create their own dream home.
A rare gem in a beautiful semi-rural position, 'Bailiffs Cottage' is a pretty character home that originally formed part of a substantial stone built farmhouse. Set just above the popular village of Compton Dando, it shares its superb setting with just a small clutch of other individual character homes.
In need of moderate updating, refurbishment or even potentially remodelling the property is approached via a shared driveway that leads to a private parking area and large double garage/workshop. Passing the spacious lawned garden from which you enjoy incredible views back towards the village a reclaimed flagstone pathway leads you up to the front door of the house, one of two providing access to the property.
Inside the house to the ground floor, you will find a generous kitchen/breakfast room that links through to a separate dining room/study area and a large pantry/utility. Beyond the kitchen is a separate living room with an open fireplace and staircase rising to the first floor. There is also a handy ground floor cloakroom and work room that leads to the double garage.
On the first floor are four bedrooms and the family bathroom, some of which have excellent views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a further large attic space with potential subject to the necessary planning permissions.
Whilst in need of modernisation the property is perfectly habitable and offers a spacious footprint that could be enhanced in any number of ways. What's more the exceptional views and idyllic setting make Bailiffs Cottage utterly perfect for the family buyers who are looking to lay down roots in quiet and peaceful location and enjoy the great outdoors.
The Bath & North East Somerset village of Compton Dando is well known for its village life, with a busy community, walks on the doorstep, an impressive Grade II listed Church and one of the best pubs around. Found in the Chew Valley and just 3 miles from Keynsham, 7 miles from Bristol, 8 miles from Bath (60 minutes to Paddington once line electrification is completed in 2017). 30 minutes from Bristol International Airport.
Travelling into Compton Dando proceed past the village hall and the Compton Inn as you enter the centre of the village. Take the right hand turning onto Bathford Hill and the property can then be found on the right hand side approximately 100 metre up the road.
