About This Property

Located on the highly favoured eastern fringe of the city, with views towards the rolling countryside and within a short walk to the historic city centre, this wonderful period cottage offers generous size living spaces and flexible living, combined with a sunny south-facing garden including studio/home office complete with cloakroom. EPC Rating D.

40 Bath Road is believed to date back to the 1860’s, with one of the properties within the terrace also having a rich history as a former Inn. The cottage centres on a wonderfully proportioned main reception room, providing a quiet cool retreat during summer or a wonderful warm heart during winter with an original fireplace including wood burner and a cloakroom is to be found under the stairs. A conservatory joining up with the garden offers a pleasant dining/study area. The kitchen sits to the rear and enjoys a pleasant outlook over the garden, with a rear porch and the ground floor is completed with a second porch to the front to welcome guests. The first floor offers 2 double bedrooms, both with fitted storage and the second room has a built-in desk area ideal for home working. A modern white bathroom completes the first floor.

Bath Road is on the eastern side of Wells and an easy walk into the City Centre. Wells is the smallest cathedral city in England lying in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Mendip Hills. It has local markets twice a week and many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. A busy local shopping centre with supermarkets, including Waitrose. A broad range of societies and activities including a cinema, leisure centre, and golf course. Excellent state and private schools serve the area including Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, All Hallows and Millfield. The major towns of the area are Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil, all within commuting distance. Castle Cary is the nearest mainline train station with fast links to London, Paddington.

Approached from Bath Road with a deep lawned frontage setting the cottage back. The rear garden offers a glorious south-facing area, with a beautiful range of seasonal perennials, a productive plum tree and secluded sunny and shaded seating areas dotted around the garden, plus a summer house. The garden also includes a conversion of the former garage into a wonderful little studio with plumbing and electricity, plus a cloakroom offering huge appeal to those looking for an area to pursue hobbies or run a small business from home. The section adjoining the lane at the rear is still retained as storage for bins, bikes and garden equipment. The property has parking along the fence to the rear of the garden with garage door into the storage section of the outbuilding. A pedestrian gate leads back into the garden.
