An individual three bedroom detached residence situated in the enviable village of Compton Martin with beautifully tended gardens and countryside views of the Mendip Hills. Having been completely refurbished by the current owners to an immaculate standard the property still offers further potential if desired to create a larger dwelling with plans already drawn up.
Upon entering Coombe Lea is a light, spacious and welcoming entrance hall with walnut engineered wood flooring leading into the sitting room. The living accommodation is predominantly open plan taking full advantage of a triple aspect and lovely views over the manicured gardens. The sitting room is a well proportioned room benefiting from a modern inset electric fire as the focal point and large feature windows to the front. With views over the garden the dining area can comfortably accommodate a table for six to eight people and is open plan to the kitchen and sitting room, perfect for entertaining guests or family. A further breakfast area looks directly into the kitchen which was fitted within the last 2 years. Within the kitchen are a range of storage units, integrated dishwasher, induction hob, double oven, fridge/freezer microwave and has a door leading out to the gardens.
On the opposite side of the entrance hall is the bedroom wing. To the front is a delightful double bedroom, a spacious room which is currently used as an office but would also make for a lovely snug or home library if desired. A further bedroom features built in storage, both rooms can be serviced by the main family bathroom which features a bath with shower above, toilet, wash hand basin and motion sensitive lighting.
The master suite is split over two levels, the bedroom area features a wall of fitted wardrobes and has marvellous views over the garden. A beautifully fitted ensuite shower room is all but a few steps away and features a large walk in shower, toilet, wash hand basin and storage.
Approaching the property is a voice controlled gate entry system with a sliding gate opening to a driveway to accommodate four to five cars and access to the double garage. The double garage, with electric door, offers a host of different opportunities, currently it has electricity and water connected and, subject to the necessary consents, it could become additional accommodation or an annexe.
The gardens, which are completely private and not overlooked, have been beautifully tended over the years after having been landscaped by the current owners and are predominantly laid to lawn with a wide variety of shrubs, bushes and borders of flowers. Set within the garden are several seating areas to enjoy the sun at any time of the day. A decking area provides the perfect space for outside entertaining and new lighting around the garden enables it to be used well into the evening.
Currently there is active planning permission granted to extend Coombe Lea if desired. Bath and North East Somerset Council Ref: 15/03413/FUL
