This 18th Century character cottage is bursting with charm and authenticity, set in the ever-popular village of Compton Martin. The property is located on a leafy lane, close to local amenities such as the Ring O' Bells pub and the village Post Office all whilst having good transport links into Bristol and Wells. There is also scope to make the property larger with granted planning permission: 21/04689/FUL.
Bramble Cottage is entered at the front via a porch which leads directly into a cosy living room with south facing newly fitted double glazed sash windows and a traditional fireplace set into feature stonework. Next to the living room is the kitchen opening out into a breakfast room with French doors and large 'Velux' window that floods the room with light.
The first floor comprises two bedrooms both with newly fitted double glazed sash windows, looking out over the front. This floor is finished with a spacious family bathroom.
The garden to the front has steps up to a gravelled drive with parking for two cars, and the addition of an attractive stone-built double garage. The rest of the garden is specifically designed to make the most of the outstanding views on a multi-level, split layout. At the top of the garden is a decked area, perfect for taking in the breath-taking views of both Blagdon and Chew Valley lakes and an outbuilding provides useful storage for garden furniture.
Compton Martin lies in the heart of the beautiful Chew Valley. It is part of a small parish with a population of just over 500; it has all the facilities generally associated with a small village such as a post office, public house, 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, (www.ubley.bathnes.sch.uk) and the secondary state schooling provided by Chew Valley Comprehensive (www.chewvalleyschool.co.uk) draws people from far and wide seeking to live within its catchment area. Only seven miles to the north of the Chew Valley is the City of Bristol, the West Country's financial and business centre, whilst the charming City of Bath with its Roman origins and Georgian architectural masterpieces is under half an hour's drive to the East. On the southern side of the Mendips is the historic City of Wells, England's smallest, with its ancient Cathedral. Access to the motorway network is at Clevedon (junction 20), St. Georges (junction 21) and Edithmead (junction 22) and there is an international airport at Lulsgate and mainline railway stations at Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Bristol.
Travelling along the A368, toward Blagdon, in Compton Martin just before the duck pond on your right, turn left into Rectory Lane and proceed up the lane, approximately half way, to find Bramble Cottage set on the left.
