Utterly charming and incredibly spacious, West End House is one of the most striking detached homes we have seen in a long time. Dating back to the early 1800's the property is bursting with character features, exposed beams and traditional fireplaces. Positioned within the heart of Compton Martin the property occupies a large level plot, perfect for keen gardeners or growing families.
Entered to the front of the property, West End House adopts a traditional layout with generously sized reception rooms and equally as spacious bedrooms. The ground floor comprises a striking entrance hall, large sitting room with feature fireplace and a separate dining room too. There is also a generously sized kitchen which overlooks the garden and a separate breakfast area. To the back of the property there is a utility room which provides access into the double garage and also to the side and rear of the property. The ground floor is completed with a large workshop and studio room above, there is so much potential to perhaps convert this into a home office or even separate annex space.
The first floor at the property is equally spacious. A staircase from the entrance hallway leads to the landing which provides access into all five double bedrooms. The bedrooms all enjoy their own unique outlooks over the Compton Wood to the front and the gardens to the side and rear. The bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom and a separate shower room.
The gardens run to both the side and rear of the property. Mainly laid to lawn they also feature an array of mature flower and shrub borders. To the side of the gardens there is a handy potting shed and also a further stone store to the bottom of the garden too. At the end of the gardens, there is a dividing hedgerow that screens a wonderful orchard and vegetable plot. To the side of the house there is ample off street car parking for multiple vehicles on the property's private driveway.
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 but also benefits from Truespeed superfast broadband (200mbs). 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 M5 is at Clevedon (junction 20), St. Georges (junction 21) and Edithmead (junction 22). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and mainline railway stations at Weston-super-Mare, Yatton, Bath and Bristol.
Travelling through Compton Martin towards Ubley, proceed through the village and past the duck pond and post office on the right. Proceed further past the Ring of Bells pub on the left, you will then find the property shortly after the Pub located on the right hand side.
