A period house of great charm and character offering deceptively spacious accommodation. Set only a short, level walk from the High Street the property has an easily maintained courtyard garden to the rear. Offering plenty of space for downsizers or growing families a viewing is really essential.
The house is known to date back to 1736. In 2011 a comprehensive program of refurbishment was undertaken with a new roof, new kitchen and bathroom fitted and timbers throughout were treated.
An entrance lobby (with a ramped access suitable for a mobility scooter) leads into a large sitting room with feature fireplace (with a multi fuel stove inset) and stairs to the first floor, a dining area opens off this room and to the rear there is a large Farmhouse-style dining kitchen with an extensive range of units with french doors opening into the courtyard. Three bedrooms (all with fitted storage) and a bathroom with built-in storage. Gas central heating and most windows are double glazed.
Outside there is an attractive courtyard garden to the rear which we are told by the owners is a real sun trap. Stone paved with a brick and tile shed. Log store. Water butt and outside tap. All enjoying a good degree of privacy and security. A lovely space that can be as much or as little work as the next owner might choose.
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. 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. At the T-junction turn right into Southover and the property can be found on the left hand side after the Chapel.
