Packed full of character and charm this three storey townhouse offers an amazing amount of flexible accommodation and a walled landscaped garden that could be in the countryside rather than the city centre. A really special house which our clients describe as being great to live in all year round. Viewing essential and no onward chain!
A part glazed door opens into an entrance lobby with an inner door opening into the sitting room. This room has a magnificent beamed ceiling, an oak floor and a feature fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove. To the rear is a dining room with window and door to the rear garden and units made from reclaimed wood housing plumbing for washing machine and space for tumble dryer. Stairs to the first floor and access to a ground floor cloakroom/toilet. To the rear of the dining room is a light and airy kitchen with bespoke oak kitchen units incorporating an electric hob and double oven and a ceramic sink with mixer tap. Enjoying a double aspect there are patio doors onto the garden.
On the first floor there is a double bedroom with extensive fitted storage and an understairs cupboard, a bathroom with separate shower and a further bedroom with built-in storage leading onto a large balcony area with views over the gardens of Silver Street and Southover. We are told the sunsets are fantastic from here.
On the top floor there is a large master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and exposed A-frame beams with access to an en suite bathroom (with the airing cupboard containing a recently replaced gas fired combination boiler supplying central heating and hot water) and to a further bedroom or dressing room (or perhaps an office) with two built-in cupboards.
The landscaped rear garden is an absolute delight. Entirely walled it is a real sun trap with two seating areas (one for the morning and the other for the afternoon). Enjoying a good degree of privacy the garden is level and enjoys a variety of mature plants and shrubs with honeysuckles and climbing roses. At the end of the garden is a summerhouse providing useful storage.
Wells is the smallest city in England and offers a vibrant high street with a variety of independent shops and restaurants as well as a twice weekly market and a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose. Amenities include a leisure centre, independent cinema and a theatre. Bristol and Bath lie c.22 miles to the north and north-east respectively with mainline train stations to London at Castle Cary (c.11 miles) as well as Bristol and Bath. Bristol International Airport is c.15 miles to the north-west. Of particular note is the variety of well-regarded schools in both the state and private sectors in Wells and the surrounding area.
From Wells High Street continue into Broad Street. Turn left into St John Street and right into Southover. Take the first turning left into Silver Street and the property can be found on the left hand side.
