About This Property

Enjoying a private and secluded position on the North Eastern fringe of the thriving Cathedral City of Wells, this wonderful family home sits in a plot of over 0.2 of an acre, adjoining farmland to the rear in a highly desirable residential area.

A most desirable 4 bed detached 1960’s property, occupying a corner plot and situated in one of the most favourable locations in Wells. The accommodation offers generously proportioned spaces in a traditional layout and with several full depth windows, all of the reception rooms have a light and airy feel. A central hall provides a welcoming area, along with a generous sized cloakroom and stairs up to the first floor. To the left of the house is a full depth sitting room, offering a wonderful space for families and entertaining and has views to the front, side and rear gardens along with a door out to the rear. Alongside the sitting room at the rear, is a lovely dining room which in turn adjoins the kitchen breakfast room with a useful rear glazed porch, giving access to the garden. A door also leads into the integral garage, with ample space to the front for both parking and replacement garaging if desired. Subject to any necessary regulations and permission, the integral garage is crying out to be included within the kitchen, to offer a wonderful and more open style of family living. All the bedrooms are of excellent proportions with one currently utilised as a study, which will appeal to those needing to work from home. The master is of a particularly generous size with several fitted wardrobes and an ensuite. A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. 21 Drake Road also has a definite sense of light and airiness about it, thanks to its clever design and large living spaces, which are enhanced by the triple aspect in the sitting room . It will undoubtedly appeal to those with families looking to be situated in a highly sought after location, within easy reach of excellent schooling at both primary and secondary level. It will also appeal to those looking to be close to the centre of Wells whilst remaining ‘off the beaten track’ with beautiful walks straight from the door.

The sought after Drake Road is to be found at the top end of Hawkers Lane, accessed via the bottom of Bath Road. The City Centre is considered to be within walking distance, where a fine range of day to day amenities and facilities can be found. There is good schooling at all levels, both state and private. Wells contains many cultural attractions, mainly evolving around the famous Cathedral and Bishops Palace.

21 Drake Road occupies a corner plot with gardens surrounding it to three sides, extending to 0.22 of an acre. It is approached via an area of off-road parking, with a further gated access to the rear garden. The grounds are laid to a combination of patio, hard-standing and sweeping lawns with an abundance of colourful flora and mature shrubs. There is also a large integral garage/workshop set off the initial drive, with a summerhouse nestled in a secluded spot in the garden. Not only is it a safe environment for children’s play and pets, it also offers a wonderful canvas for keen gardeners and is a superb spot for alfresco dining and entertaining in the warmer months. Delightful views are enjoyed from the garden to the pasture land behind.
