Set in a hidden position just off the lower end of St Thomas Street this charming Grade II Listed cottage offers great living space and a very pretty and private garden in a central yet quiet position. It has lovely views of Wells Cathedral. Definitely needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated. No onward chain.
Approached via a cross passage running between two neighbouring properties the property is out of sight from St Thomas Street giving it a good degree of security and also buffering it from traffic noise. An entrance lobby opens to the right to a sitting room with a feature fireplace with Minster stone surround and an electric fire inset (although it could be adapted to an open fire or wood burning stove). With a double glazed window to the front and television point.
To the left of the lobby is a dining room with a double glazed window to the front and a large walk-in cupboard with light. There is another chimney breast in this room although no actual fire place. This room leads to an inner lobby with a well appointed shower room and a lovely kitchen with breakfast area and a stable door leading into the garden. The floor is tiled throughout and there is a good range of wall and base units with gas hob, electric oven and integrated dishwasher. There is a housing for a fridge freezer and also plumbing for a washing machine.
On the first floor there is an inner landing with airing cupboard and stairs up to the attic. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor both with lovely views of Wells Cathedral and the larger bedroom has two built-in double wardrobes with cupboards over. Between the two bedrooms is a Jack and Gill cloakroom.
On the top floor there is an attic room with television and telephone points with two velux windows overlooking Wells Cathedral. With tongue and groove panelling this makes a great occasional bedroom or perhaps a study. There is also access into a further area of roof space.
On the outside there is a wall mounted oil fired boiler supplying central heating and hot water.
To the front of the property there are gravelled flower beds. Gated access to the side leading into the main area of garden which comprises a good sized patio area with plenty of room for table and chairs with outside water tap and lighting. Garden shed. Steps up to a lawned garden with well stocked flower beds. Bounded by a Medieval stone wall. Enjoying a good degree of privacy. Oil tank concealed by panel fencing.
Set within one of the oldest streets in Wells and within easy walking distance of 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 Wells city centre follow signs for the B3139 The Horringtons into St Thomas Street. The property can be found on the left hand side via the door between 11a and 11b St Thomas Street.
