A delightfully located country home with extensive grounds, tennis court and detached annexe.
Compton Dando is a pretty village with a thriving community and within the immediate vicinity is an excellent village pub, parish church and village hall. The village is built on agricultural foundations and within proximity there are excellent rides and stables, sailing on the Chew Valley Lakes and golf available at Saltford. The setting is outstanding with woodland and pastureland in abundance. Both Bath and Bristol are virtually equidistant offering a diversity of cultures and culinary experiences. A substantial redevelopment of Keynsham took place in 2014 that included an increase in national stores eg Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and wh Smiths as well as many independent bars, cafes and restaurants. The refurbishment of the Sports Centre will also take place this year. Wellsway School has built a Sports Centre that is open to the public and offers facilities for local sports clubs.
Park Cottage occupies a most convenient country location almost equidistant between Bath and Bristol. Compton Dando is a small and popular village with a great sense of community and well frequented public house, The Compton Inn at its centre. The current owners have lived within the property for approaching 25 years during which time they have made a significant number of changes and improvements to the home.
Believed to date to 1679 in parts, but not listed, the property was substantially extended in 1986 and more recently has been comprehensively refurbished, now offering elegant and well appointed accommodation. Tucked away on the edge of the village and surrounded by beautiful, mature countryside, the property is approached via a discreet and secure gated entrance. A magnificent sweeping gravel driveway leads through the substantial grounds to the house which sits at the far end on the brow of a gentle hill. There is parking for numerous vehicles with garaging and a car barn. Subject to the necessary planning consents this could be converted to further accommodation, home office or fitness suite. Within the main house, three reception rooms and a ground floor cloakroom are set off the L shaped entrance hall and the beautifully presented Aga style kitchen incorporates a generous dining area with doors opening to a large conservatory overlooking the grounds. There are five first floor bedrooms in total, the master being en suite and the family bathroom with dual ended bath and high end sanitaryware of a particularly high finish. The property retains a good sense of character with exposed ceiling beams and a fireplace in the sitting room and the current owners have achieved an elegant blend of both contemporary styling and period charm.
The adjacent annexe is finished to an impressive standard and is perfect for those seeking to generate useful rental income whether through AirBnB or longer lets and also offers great scope to accommodate a family member on a more permanent basis. Accommodation within the annexe is on one level with an open plan sitting/kitchen, two bedrooms, a nursery and a bathroom.
The grounds of 3.45 acres are predominantly laid to sweeping lawns, bordered by mature trees and woodland. To the front of the property and approached via a small gravel pathway is a large feature pond which attracts an abundance of local wildlife and to the rear of the annexe sits a hard surface tennis court.
Please note that this property is available without an onward chain.
