Property Summary

This handsome 1930’s property offers oodles of flexible living space having been extensively renovated and extended to create a perfect home within a short walk of the beautiful city of Wells. With garage, parking and garden it ticks many boxes.

The contemporary tone of the house is set as soon as you enter the generous hall with its “black and white chequered” floor tiles and decorated in slate grey paint.

This light filled house is organised in a predominantly open plan layout on the ground floor having been designed to bring the family together with the kitchen and the receptions rooms flowing into each other whilst retaining their individual identity. The kitchen is at the heart of this delightful home with bespoke cabinetry arranged around a central island and with a fabulous porcelain tiled floor. A wide archway with side carved wooden pillars opens into the beautiful light filled living room with striking fireplace and bay widow. The custom-made conservatory, with underfloor heating makes a fabulous dining space with French doors leading onto the garden creating the perfect indoor-outdoor flow. Both the hall and conservatory lead into a generous sized reception room which could be used as a playroom, snug or additional bedroom.

The spacious cloakroom/utility can easily accommodate a shower for anyone wanting a downstairs bedroom with almost en-suite facilities. Bespoke cupboards provide space for a tumble dryer and washing machine.

On the first floor are four bedrooms. The peaceful principal bedroom is triple aspect with views over the rooftops and beyond to the Mendip Hills. There is space for a dressing area which leads to an en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms and the family bathroom complete the first floor. The family bathroom has wainscot panelling and is attractively finished with a double ended bath and walk in shower.

The house stands back from Portway and has stone walling with a pedestrian gate and low maintenance garden. Planted with shrubs and pathway to the front door and double wrought iron gates leading to the side.

The rear garden is currently designed for low maintenance, being a mix of lawn and terrace, which is the perfect place for the setting sun bounded by hedgerow and being a blank canvas to create your own English country garden. To the rear of the property double solid wood gates give access to a quiet lane where the car can be parked, the garage sits at the end of the garden with access onto the lane.

By car the property is approached via Welsford Avenue and within the curtilage there is a detached garage of good size and parking space accessed behind a roller gate.

Wells is the smallest Cathedral city in England and offers excellent amenities including banks, doctors surgeries, dentists and a selection of primary schools and the excellent Blue School and Wells Cathedral school. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a variety of independent shops and restaurants and pubs, coffed bars, delis and wine bars 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).
The Wells festivals are increasing in popularity each year with the Literary Festival now taking place over two weeks and attracting big names in the literary world, the very well attended Food Festival and many regular Arts festivals. With both the Cathedral School and the Cathedral itself there are endless opportunities for musical concerts, plus there are regular shows and comedy nights in the Little Theatre.

Both Bath (21 miles) and Bristol (22 miles) are within commuting distance and there is a main line railway station with links to London in Castle Cary 13 miles away. Street and Glastonbury are 20 minutes away and Bristol airport is an easy 30-minute drive.

There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including highly regarded primary schools in Wells, Wells Cathedral Prep, Millfield Prep and senior schools, the popular Wells Blue Secondary School, Wells Cathedral School, Downside School and All Hallows Prep School
