This is an amazing opportunity to purchase a superbly renovated 4-bed character character home, in a quiet position with wonderful views across farmland and countryside towards Bath.

If you fancy living the country dream with fresh eggs from your own chickens, deer grazing at the bottom of the garden and calves peering over the stone wall in the spring this could well be the home for you!

Some nine months ago the current owners of this property purchased it with a view to enjoying their delightful new home for many years to come. With this in mind they have invested in a carefully managed refurbishment and improvement programme that has resulted in the creation of a relaxing and stylish countryside home with a multitude of newly installed features.

A significant opportunity has now presented itself, which they have decided to embrace, and as a result HARROD PROPERTY is now delighted to bring this exciting and unique 4 bedroom period cottage to the market.

Let’s start by clarifying some of the detail relating to the alterations made most recently…

Replacement of lounge wall and window with 2.7mtr wide, oak framed, glazed bi-fold doors.

This has immediately opened up views to the lower part of Chilcompton and across the valley in the direction of Bath, the lounge has been filled with light and the interior and external environments now feel very much integrated.

Hardwood Decking adds even more usability to the bi-fold doors.
A hardwood decking platform has been constructed immediately outside of the bi-fold doors located at the rear of the lounge and provides the perfect position to take in the superb view.

Installation of Bath stone fireplace; surround, mantle and hearth.
Supplied by Curtis Fireplaces this beautiful feature has been hand carved by a master stone mason from locally sourced Superior Bath Stone.

Installation of Jetmaster open fire.
Offering stunning looks, performance and efficiency, arguably this is the pinnacle of open fireplaces and compliments the Bath Stone surround perfectly.

Limestone Floor Tiles – A stylish new Kitchen, literally from the ground up!
Prior to fitting the beautiful new Fired Earth Cathedral Antique tumbled limestone tiled floor it was necessary to lift and relay the base floor construction. The kitchen was also re-plastered, tiled, gas supply moved and new electrical points installed.

Professionally fitted Handmade Tulip Wood Kitchen
Manufactured by local cabinetmakers and installed with oak block surfaces and a double butler sink.

Oh, and there’s a brand spanking new gas fuelled Rangemaster Classic 100!
This stunning piece of cooking perfection sits perfectly in this country kitchen and is complimented by a Fired Earth tiled splash-back.

Brand new Bathroom for a touch of classic Victorian charm
The old timber bathroom floor has been replaced using random profile floor boards to retain period styling. A new Bathroom Suite, complete with claw-foot half roll-top bath from The Bath Store has been installed and to add a finishing touch a period style radiator/towel rail has also been fitted. The flat roof above the Bathroom has also been completely overhauled.

Even the Cloakroom has distinct and discernible class with reclaimed encaustic floor tiles
Enthusiastically sourced by the owners and professionally laid. Encaustic tiles are ceramic tiles in which the pattern on the surface is not a product of the glaze but formed of different colours of clay created during manufacture.

Solid Oak Interior Doors throughout with Blacksmith Hand Crafted Door Furniture
Along with made to measure curtain poles in graphite wrought iron, by Siddington Smithy in Cheshire, and stair carpet runners.

Creation of brand New Utility Room
Previously just a simple storage room this has now been fully converted and plumbed as a full Utility and Laundry Room.

New Central Heating system
A new Worcester combi-boiler and radiators have been installed throughout.

A total professional redecoration
All internal paintwork; walls, ceilings and woodwork have been thoroughly redecorated with Farrow & Ball.

Exterior Render repairs have all been completed
The chimney, along with the front and side elevations have all been re-rendered and all external walls have been professionally redecorated.

In addition to all this, a new DPC has been installed, the attic has been boarded and a ladder fitted, new exterior security lights have been installed, new period styled rainwater guttering has been fitted and there is a new gate to the driveway.

The Garage has also benefitted from significant refurbishment and conversion. A stud wall splits the garage into storage and office space with a raised wooden floor with vinyl flooring over, fitted French windows, services, drainage and insulation.
