Bursting with character, this detached period cottage (believed to date back to the early 1800's) situated in the favoured village of Compton Dundon retains the charm associated with a property of its age, whilst also benefiting from numerous improvements being conducted over the last few years to greatly improve the cottage. The flexible accommodation can be configured to create a four bedroom cottage with two reception rooms or a three bedroom cottage with three reception rooms. Character features include elegant exposed beams, Inglenook stone fireplace and exposed stone walls. The property benefits from stunning large gardens which include numerous fruit trees, a large vegetable patch and a pond with an ornamental rockery and seating area. Numerous outbuildings include an old cattery and stone built store which has the potential for conversion subject to the granting of the usual planning permissions. The property is fully double glazed and benefits from plenty of off road parking and a very large garage/workshop.
