Property Description

Originally constructed in 1805, Martyn House is a very spacious (2045 sq ft) detached Georgian residence situated in a central and convenient location in the heart of the popular coastal village of Combe Martin. Despite its central position, the property enjoys a good deal of privacy and is approached via its own private driveway which provides plenty of off road parking and turning space and leads to a large garage. The current vendor has renovated the whole property to a high standard.

The property sits in a generously plot which stretches up away from the property and has an array of current uses, with a vegetable plot and a patio area. From the top of the garden excellent views can be enjoyed over the village and surrounding countryside and down the valley towards the Bristol Channel.

The house itself has particularly flexible accommodation arranged over 3 floors and is considered ideal for the larger family or for a family with dependant relative. The property benefits from gas central heating and has uPVC double glazing and an abundance of original character features.

There is a spacious entrance hallway with a decorative tiled floor which has the stairs to the first floor with a useful store cupboard under. The lounge is a particularly cosy room having a stripped timber floorboards, a beamed ceiling with a large bay window to the front enjoying a sunny southerly aspect.

Across the hallway is a second reception room which is a particularly characterful room with a feature brick built working fireplace and hearth. There is another large bay window to front again enjoying a sunny southerly aspect. A beamed ceiling adds to the character of the room.

At the rear of the property there is a 30'' x 11' kitchen/dining room which has a range of fitted base and wall units, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water. A 5 ring gas range cooker with extractor hood is complimented by a tiled splashback alongside a sink and drainer. At the other end of this room, a large exposed stone wall brings a huge amount of character to this space, giving enough room to dine and entertain. Two doors lead out to the rear of the property and up to the gardens

On the first floor there is a split level landing and the stairs that lead up to the second floor. Bedrooms 1 & 2 are located at the front of the building and they both enjoy pleasant views over the village towards the surrounding countryside. Both rooms also have ornamental feature fireplaces and built-in wardrobes. Bedroom 3 is located at the rear and again has 2 double built-in wardrobes and across the landing is a large family bathroom W.C. which comprises a panelled bath, hand basin, a low level W.C. and a walk-in shower cubicle. There is a good sized airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and a beamed ceiling. Immediately adjacent to the bathroom is a separate W.C.

On the second floor there are 2 further good sized double bedrooms, both enjoying pleasant views across the village towards the countryside and both having built-in wardrobes. The accommodation is completed by a small box room which again would make an ideal small office or store room.

Outside, at the front of the property is a private driveway which provides off road parking and turning for several cars. There is a large garage which has light and power and up and over door and a pedestrian access door leads out to the front onto a small area of lawned garden. There is a gated access at the left hand side of the building which leads along a concrete path to the rear of the property.

Immediately behind the house is a yard area with outside tap and light and with steps leading up onto a large rear garden which has gated access onto a good sized level lawned. A gravelled pathway leads up to a paved terrace which enjoys plenty of sunlight and views over the village towards the countryside and would be the perfect location to dine alfresco.

The gardens are laid primarily to lawn and slope upwards away from the house and have a variety of mature and smaller trees. Immedately behind the paved terrace is a terraced enclosure suitable chickens or other small animals. At the top of the garden is a large level area ideal for a summer house and which has an attractive stone wall boundary.

The gardens enjoy views towards the countryside and from the top tier has views down the valley towards the Bristol Channel in the distance. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property and are a rare facility for houses so close to the centre of the village.

We fully advise an early internal inspection of this spacious and flexible family home to appreciate the facilities on offer.
