Bramley Cottage is reputed to originally date from circa 1770 and has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide the extensive and versatile accommodation that exists today. The property is offered for sale following over 40 years in the current ownership. This much loved family home extends in total to circa 2600sqft across two floors providing accommodation of a scale, flexibility and character unappreciated unless viewed internally.

On the ground floor there is an entrance porch and hallway, living room with a feature inglenook fireplace, separate dining room and study together with a good size kitchen/breakfast room which links to a superb garden room enjoying rural views and overlooking the mature gardens. In addition there is a cloakroom with wc and utility room on the ground floor while the first floor has up to six bedrooms (with the possibility of using the property with a five bedroom layout with a dressing room to the main bedroom.) The bedrooms are served by a well appointed bathroom and separate shower room. There is scope to reconfigure the accommodation to suit individual needs.

The south facing cottage is well set back from Durcott Lane with a block paved driveway providing ample off street parking and leading to a stone garage and workshop. The majority of the gardens lie on the eastern side of the property and are well stocked with a great degree of maturity.

To the rear of the house beyond the Limestone Link public footpath lies a pasture paddock which provides a great amenity area and is equally suitable for pony grazing, keeping a small head of stock or vegetable gardening. In total the plot extends to just over 2 acres. (This is available to purchase under separate negotiation, speak to the office for details)

The property is also being sold without an onward chain.


Durcott Lane is a sought after position in the Cam Valley linking Camerton with Radford. Camerton is a traditional village community with local facilities including a church, village hall and playing fields. The villages of Timsbury and Peasedown St John are close by providing day to day shopping facilities as well as sporting and recreational opportunities. Camerton is well placed to commute to the Cities of Bristol, Bath and Wells as well as the Towns of Shepton Mallet, Frome, Radstock, Midsomer Norton and Keynsham. Bramley Cottage is not overlooked but enjoys attractive rural views to the front and superb views across the valley from the top of the paddock.

The property is freehold held in two titles.. We understand the paddock area is subject to an uplift clause giving the former owners a share in any future development value This expires in November 2027. The present owners will also be inserting an uplift clause. There is a small area of land between the garden and the footpath which is unregistered with over which our vendors have enjoyed access rights without any difficulty during their long period of ownership.


According to the Valuation Office Agency website, cti.voa.gov.uk the present Council Tax Band for the property is D. Please note that change of ownership is a ‘relevant transaction’ that can lead to the review of the existing council tax banding assessment.


The property has photovoltaic panels on the south facing slope of the garage roof. These are owned by the vendors and were installed on the 4th October 2010. There is a feed in tariff with an eligibility period of 25 years which presently produces annually about 3000 KWhr of free electricity and also a tax free income of around £1800 which is uplifted every April by the RPI. Further details are available on request.

We understand there is full fibre broadband (Truespeed) which provides 900Mbps internet connection.
