Compton is a quiet rural village set in a gentle fold of inspirational rolling Berkshire Downland countryside designated an AONB, and is
conveniently located between Newbury and Oxford enjoying excellent road and rail communications via the A34, M4 and with mainline Stations
nearby at Didcot and Goring-on-Thames providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour.
The village is historically linked to agriculture and farming and this association with the rural way of life continues today. Also Compton has a
long history of breeding and training thoroughbred racehorses with Racing stables still existing in the village.
Nowadays Compton boasts a Village Store open 7 days, a Post Office, the Compton Swan Bar, Hotel & Restaurant, a Doctor’s Surgery, a Sports Centre, and a Barber’s shop.
Importantly there is a wide range of excellent private and state schools in the local area including the much acclaimed Downs secondary school
with 6th Form in Compton itself.
Compton Manor is an impressive period property centrally located
in the village set within walled gardens and grounds.
Dating from the 16th Century and listed Grade II as being of significant
historical interest, this imposing building amply reflects our rich
architectural heritage with its multi gabled roof and tall chimneys
together with an atmospheric beamed interior.
In the late 1980’s Compton Manor was converted into 6 eclectic
apartments each of differing size, proportions and arrangement.
4 Compton Manor has a traditional ‘Cottage’ appearance with a
period entrance Porch approached off a private inner Courtyard.
A spacious hall leads to attractive beamed accommodation full of
character arranged over the ground and first floors.
Period features include a fabulous Inglenook fireplace in the Sitting
Room with French door opening into the south facing walled garden,
beamed ceiling throughout and leaded pane windows. These are complemented by a beautifully presented new fully fitted kitchen.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms one with a walk-in
wardrobe and one having a separate Study/Dressing Area.
Additionally Compton Manor has excellent garaging and parking.
Compton Manor stands in attractive private gardens with a long high
brick walled frontage to the High Street. A wide arched decorative
wrought iron pedestrian gate provides
direct access into the High Street itself.
The communal Gardens at the front are prettily laid out with planted
beds around a main lawn all enjoying a sheltered
Further along the High Street by the Doctors Surgery is a
drive leading to the parking and garaging for Compton Manor which
it adjoins at the rear.
The garaging comprises a block of 7 traditionally brick built garages under a
pitched clay roof with central front gable as feature. The garage to
No 4 is the first on the right hand side. There are additional parking
bays adjacent to the garages for residents/guests only.
At the rear is a private, walled Courtyard area giving access to Nos
4, 5 & 6 Compton Manor only.
The Apartment benefits from a Long Leasehold, the original 99 year Lease having been extended by 999 years in 2015.
In addition all 6 Apartments have the benefit of a 1/6th share ownership of the
Freehold of the whole of Compton Manor via a shareholding in the Management Company which owns the Freehold and is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the
building and grounds.
Currently each Leaseholder pays a management fee of £150 per month which includes Building Insurance (not Contents), exterior upkeep of the building except the windows,
plus ‘sinking funds’ for periodic external redecoration and major maintenance works.
