The House

Harptree Wood is a five double bedroom detached family home. The property is located in a unique rural position on the Mendips, yet still within easy access to the regions three cities.

Upon arrival at the property a five bar gate opens to a sweeping tree lined driveway, which then culminates at the double garage and parking area at the front of the property.

From here the front door opens to the spacious reception hall. A flight of stairs lead to the first floor and door lead to the various rooms on the ground floor. One thing which is not evident when viewing the house from the roadside is the vast array of living space on offer. The house offers in excess of 2,500 sqft of accommodation and there for is an ideal home for an established or growing family.

The principal reception rooms are all a good size. The formal sitting room is accessed from the reception hall and has an open fireplace and windows overlooking the rear garden and beyond.

A doorway from the sitting room leads through to the dual aspect family room, this room offers a multitude of usages, either as an informal sitting room, a playroom or perhaps an office/study.

The formal dining room has double doors opening into the reception hall, which give the option to create additional space if required for formal family gatherings. At the rear of the house is the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and floor cupboards and features a central island unit as well as an oil fired AGA which provides cooking, heating and hot water facilities. Next to the kitchen is the breakfast room with double doors opening to the rear garden. Also on the ground floor there is a cloakroom, a utility room and an inner lobby which leads to the double garage.

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms. All of the bedrooms enjoy an outlook either over the garden or the adjoining countryside. The master bedroom benefits from a recently refurbished en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom located on the first floor.


The property is approached via the long sweeping driveway. This leads to the parking/turning area and the double garage. The grounds and gardens are approximately 1.6 and is mainly laid to lawn with established borders. There is also a former pig sty, which could be converted, subject to the necessary consents.


Harptree Wood is situated atop the Mendips on the periphery of the popular Somerset village of Compton Martin. The centre of the village is in the heart of the Chew Valley and offers the facilities of a Parish church, popular public house (known for its famous clientele and performers), village hall and Post Office.
The properties situation offers commuters excellent access to the regional Centre of Bristol which is 13 miles to the north and the Heritage City of Bath which is 19 miles is to the east. The Cathedral City of Wells, which offers further facilities, is 9 miles to the south. The nearest motorway access can be found at either junction 20 or 21 of the M5 at Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare respectively.

The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities.
