Property Description

DESCRIPTION A substantial detached four bedroom family home with generous gardens and no onward chain. The property has been extended by the current owners to offer versatile living accommodation with the option and space for a downstairs bedroom if required.


Upon entering the house is an entrance hall with a store cupboard, downstairs cloakroom and access to the integral garage. The sitting room has a bay window to the front south facing elevation with a fireplace with gas fire, picture rail and door into the study. The kitchen/breakfast room has an array of built in units with under the counter space for white goods, range cooker, ample space for a generous dining table along with French doors opening out onto the garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a formal dining room which has in recent years been used as both a downstairs bedroom and play room. The side porch is accessed from the kitchen and provides access to the separate utility room along with both the front and back of the house.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms looking over the front gardens, one having double wardrobes and the other having two sets of double wardrobes. A further double bedroom with single wardrobe looks over the rear gardens and over roof tops to the Mendip Hills in the distance. On the first floor is a shower room with a walk in shower, toilet and wash hand basin. The second floor features a further double bedroom with gorgeous views towards the Mendips and an en-suite cloakroom. 

OUTSIDE Approaching the property is a wooden five bar gate to a driveway comfortably accommodating three or four cars with access to the integral garage. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs, bushes, flowers and trees with a footpath meandering through. French doors open from the kitchen to a raised patio area with a pathway that leads to the front of the house.  

LOCATION The picturesque City of Wells is located in the Mendip district of Somerset. Wells itself offers a range of local amenities and shopping facilities with four supermarkets (including Waitrose), as well as twice weekly markets, cinema, leisure centre, a choice of pubs and restaurants, dentists and doctors, several churches and both primary and secondary state schools.

There are also many highly-regarded independent schools (Prep & Senior) within easy reach, such as All Hallows Prep School, Downside School, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School. For those travelling by train, Castle Cary station (which has direct services to London Paddington) is situated only twelve miles away. Both the City of Bristol and the Georgian City of Bath, a World Heritage Site, are located just 20 miles away and easily accessible
