Property Description
The present owners, Tim and Jill have lived in Compton Martin for some years and absolutely love the lifestyle the village provides, plus the stunning location on the edge of the glorious Mendip Hills. When they decided to upgrade to a larger property, they knew they wanted to stay in the village and to their delight, Leamon Farmhouse came onto the market, with its spacious rooms and garden that merged into the countryside. It was perfect.

Tim explains that although the property was lovely it was very dated, and they have made many improvements to create the light flooded, elegant and ultra comfortable home it is today. Changes included the forming of a large open plan living space from the original kitchen and dining room. Installing bifold windows, new windows and doors, underfloor heating to the ground floor, a security system with electric gates and Wi fi access points in every room, are only a few of the upgrades they have made.

Jill says they enjoy the entire house, but the hub of the home is the open plan family room and kitchen diner, where you can be winter cosy with the warmth from the log burner; or open the bi folds when house and garden blend into one delightful whole. It is a joy to sit by the windows with the garden as a fantastic background and for the family dogs, it is a favourite place to feel the warmth of the sun through the glass.

The house is a great party venue, and the owners recall many occasions when they have hosted summer al fresco dinner parties for friends who gathered round the patio dining table for relaxed meals, or more formally in the chic sitting room. A memorable occasion was the large garden party they held to celebrate the end of lockdown with their friends from the village and family attending. The six bedrooms enable ease of entertaining and Jill says the corner double aspect window in one of the guest rooms has extra special views to the garden and the wildlife of the Mendip Hills.

The large private garden is set mainly to lawn, and is surrounded by fields to the rear, and is a calm, green oasis. The newly built eyrie at the bottom of the garden is where you can look towards The Mendips and Blagdon; and feel you are miles from anywhere. The patio runs the length of the property, and the underlighting in the low wall adds a charming atmosphere for summer evening drinks.

Compton Martin is a village with a great community spirit. There is a post office, excellent pub and a variety of clubs and societies. You can enjoy walks on the Mendips, Blagdon, and Chew Valley lakes. Wells, Bristol, and Bath have excellent schools, retail and leisure facilities and are all less than thirty minutes’ drive away.

Jill and Tim are moving to be closer to family but say they will miss the house, their friends, and the village. They will always remember the lovely end to a working week, relaxing on the patio, with a glass of wine and listening to the peal of the church bells. They will take this and many other happy memories away with them.

Through the part glazed front door lies a generous hallway which leads to the kitchen. This light and airy room has a range of painted units with granite worksurfaces, a central island unit, an electric range cooker with 5 burner gas hob, separate Miele eye level oven/microwave and double Butler sink. An attractive roof lantern allows the light to flood in. The kitchen is open plan to the dining and family area and also links to the separate reception room which is currently used as a study. The main open plan area has two sets of bifold doors with integral blinds and overlooks the rear garden.
The kitchen has a separate spacious utility room which has a range of fitted cupboards, sink, and plumbed for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A part glazed door leads through to the rear garden. Off this room is a cloakroom and access to the spacious integrated double garage, with up and over electric doors.
The bright, sitting room has a bay window to the front and window to the side, a wood burning stove with slate hearth and engineered oak flooring. Stairs lead up to a generous landing, off which are the six bedrooms. Three of these have ensuite bathrooms including the stunning dual aspect principal bedroom which has built-in wardrobes. The lovely dual aspect guest room has an ensuite bathroom and overlooks the rear garden. There is also a luxury family bathroom with freestanding bath, vanity unit, WC and touchscreen mirror.
The property has a generous amount of wardrobe/storage space including three loft areas, two of which are boarded. As part of the upgrade by the present owners, new uPVC windows and doors have been fitted throughout. Underfloor heating has been installed to the downstairs and, with energy conservation in mind, solar panels to the rear roof elevation, contributing to an impressive EPC B rating. Central Wi-Fi has been installed with access points throughout the house and a security system including electric gates, alarm, and CCTV system as well as an electric vehicle charging point.

The garden has recently undergone a complete redesign and immediately to the rear of the house is a sunny terraced area, perfect for outdoor dining. and now includes a brick built walled area, with underlighting, which borders a newly laid porcelain patio. The patio runs the full width of the property and extends to the side and round to the front, where a new paved driveway has just been completed.
The delightful south facing rear gardens are mostly laid to lawn and include some mature trees and planted beds of shrubs and flowers. They are surrounded by fields to the rear and are enclosed by fencing, with newly planted laurel hedge and enjoying a high degree of privacy. Further up the garden is a newly built timber ‘eyrie’, with lighting and electric points, where one can relax and enjoy the setting sun. There is also a newly built timber shed screened by hedging which also has electricity. Access to the Mendip Hills is through a wooden gate at the rear of the property, ideal for walkers and dog lovers.
