Property Summary

Leigh Cottage is tucked away in a secret corner of Street in a quiet wooded lane just a few minutes from Millfield School. Built by the current owners approximately 20 years ago this well-designed and well proportioned house is set within a lovely garden with direct access to an arboretum of approx. 5 acres.

A porticoed porch opens from the gravelled parking area to the front of the house with its specimen “Paper Tree” into this lovely home with its stone floors, exposed brick work and beams, a modern home with period features. The well appointed kitchen leads on through to the dining/breakfast room which in turn leads to a useful utility room with doors to outside. There is also a vaulted ceiling room with exposed brick and views of the garden which is currently used as a bedroom but could be turned into a fabulous room with doors to the outside. A lovely reception room with cast iron fireplace, a further sitting room/snug leads out to a decked area with steps down to the garden. Tucked underneath this family home is a great games room – perfect for teenagers or an office. There is a further study and downstairs loo. Master bedroom with ensuite wet room and door to dressing room/4th bedroom, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The double garage has currently been converted to create a one bedroom annexe generating a good income but could easily be converted back into a garage.


Ideally located in this conversation area within a short walk from the town centre with a good range of high street shops and cafes/restaurants as well as the well-known Clarks Village Outlet centre being close by. There is a modern health centre with a doctor’s surgery, a dentist and many other health facilities. It has good access to the M5 and is at the centre of a network of small towns and the city of Wells.

Street is well positioned for easy access to the many excellent schools including Millfield Senior School (walking distance) and within a short drive of Crispin School as well as the highly regarded Strode Sixth Form College being within walking distance, as well as several good primary schools.

There are two swimming pools in Street, one to be found at the Sports Centre and the hugely popular outdoor Lido on the High Street with its lovely grassy areas for picnics. The Strode Theatre offers excellent live performances as well as films and exhibitions.

The nearby town of Glastonbury is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.

Nearby is Somerton, an old market town and one of the original capitals of Wessex and Wells the smallest City in England is only 10 miles away.

There are many Festivals throughout the area including many topics Literary, Music, Comedy and Food.
