Property Description

A wonderful and unique opportunity to purchase a detached home with planning permission to extend and being situated opposite the moated Bishops Palace within yards of Wells' bustling Market Place. Proposed accommodation to include five bedrooms, three bathrooms, detached annexe/studio and double garage. EPC Rating F.


Planning permission was granted in April 2016 for the transformation of Park Cottage into a substantial detached dwelling (261m2) together with conversion of the existing garage building into a one bedroom self-contained annex and also for the erection of a detached double garage with newly formed entrance. Built in 1888, this most appealing period home was formerly built for the Bishop with funds donated by the Clergy of the Diocese. As well as proving the opportunity for the existing property to be modernised to the purchasers taste, the double storey extension has been designed to provide a 27ft/14ft kitchen/dining room opening into a garden room/orangery measuring roughly 26ft/12ft. On the first floor a new master suite is created, providing a substantial bedroom opening into a large en-suite with separate dressing room off. The project will therefore provide the ability to retain character features within the original dwelling at the same time as building a highly energy efficient extension that has carte blanche in terms of the choice of internal layout, kitchen and bathroom suites etc. The ability to convert the existing garage and store into an ancillary accommodation is also an appealing proposition that provides flexibility for family members to stay or indeed providing a most comfortable dwelling for a close relative. Opportunities such as this are almost unheard of in Wells, especially in such an attractive and convenient location.

Park Cottage is situated in a highly desirable location opposite the moated Bishops Palace and therefore a level and most pleasant walk to the Market Place and High Street. For purchasers looking for a central location and a detached dwelling rather than a town house this could be the perfect fit. England’s smallest city boasts some beautiful architecture with its central land mark being the stunning Cathedral. The city boasts many societies and clubs as well as hosting numerous festivals throughout the year to include Wells Festival of literature that attracts speakers of national and international acclaim. The Market Place has a twice weekly produce and clothes market whilst the bustling high street boasts a wide variety of shops occupied by national and independent retailers. There are numerous hotels and restaurants as well as a eclectic mix of inns and public houses. The city is well represented in terms of super markets with Waitrose, Morrisons and Tescos all close by. Park Cottage is in yards of a delightful network of public footpaths that cross farm land, ideal for dog walking etc.

Park cottage stands within it own established plot extending to 0.31 of an acre and therefore having generous yet manageable gardens. A new vehicular access has been granted off Silver Street in order to provide a new driveway and also for the erection of a DOUBLE GARAGE.
