Full description

This charming five bedroom period property in the village of Chilcompton is the ideal family home, full of character and enjoying an idyllic location with beautiful, expansive hilltop vistas over the Somerset countryside. “There are stunning views from almost every room. The house sits at the top of a hill and you can see for miles,” say the current owners.

This is a property imbued with history, elegance and personality. “The house has its origins in the late 17th/early 18th century but was subject to a complete makeover in the Georgian Regency period,” say the owners. “The house was owned by the Longleat Estate until Lord Bath sold it in 1920. We also know that the house had been a Dame School for a time.” Beautifully brought back to its former glory, the house has had a lot of hard work and care invested in it. “The house has been subject to a complete restoration,” say the owners, “with a stunning handmade kitchen, cast iron radiators throughout, oak floors, genuine flagstone floors, a mix of Jim Lawrence and antique lighting, Farrow & Ball breathable paint and wallpapers throughout.” With its 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms extending over 3 floors, the house is spacious with generously proportioned rooms. “We were attracted to the property because the rooms are nicely laid out and have great ceiling heights in most rooms,” say the current owners.

The local area is also extremely desirable. “The house is situated in the old part of the village, well away from the main road. The Redan pub has been recently completely refurbished and is only a couple of minutes walk away. We also have the benefits of the CCo-op convenience store and a petrol station in the village but aren’t too close to them! For us, the house is perfectly situated for working in Bath and Wells (our two favourite places) and is also close to Babington House Country Hotel and club.”
