A sympathetically restored three storey town house forming part of a select, gated development in the heart of Wells with the benefit of allocated parking and no onward chain. Offering generous and versatile accommodation this property is immaculate throughout!
Penn Place is an impressive and imaginative development of three charming listed buildings and two new build cottages set within a private walled courtyard just two minutes walk from the Market Place and centre of the beautiful City of Wells.
An entrance porch opens into an entrance hall with flagstone floor, stairs to the first floor and a cloakroom. To the left is a generous sitting room with two windows and a door out onto the courtyard garden and has feature beams and a feature electric fire as a focal point. Across the hall is a well appointed dining kitchen with granite work surfaces, a range of integrated appliances and plenty of space for a dining table. Hidden in a cupboard is a gas fired boiler supplying central heating and hot water. On the first floor there is a pleasant landing with space for a desk and stairs to the second floor. On the left is a room that could equally be either a bedroom or a further reception room and our clients have used it as a study/hobby room. There are fitted wardrobes and a cupboard as well as television and telephone points. Across the landing is the master bedroom with fitted furniture and an en suite shower room that was completely refitted in 2018 with a corner shower and tiled walls and floor. The master bedroom also has television and telephone points.
On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms with one having fitted wardrobes and a cupboard and both having television and telephone points. The family shower room was also completely re-fitted and is tiled with marble-effect tiles to both the walls and floor with the shower cubicle having both over head and hand held showers.
The development is approached via remote controlled double gates with a secure pedestrian gate to the side. Both gates have an entry phone system.
A paved parking area with plenty of room for turning lies between the entrance and the property with an allocated parking space.
Walking past two other properties with sensor lighting you will find Merchant's House with a low maintenance garden to the front which has been planted with a variety of climbers over the stone wall boundary. Enjoying a south-west aspect this pleasant space gives plenty of space for outside seating. N.B. There is a right of way for a neighbouring property over the path.
Situated within the city centre. 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. At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street in Europe). 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 the High Street proceed into Broad Street and turn left into St John Street. Turn left into South Street and Penn Place can be found at the end of the street on the left hand side.
