A very rare opportunity to acquire one of Wells’ hidden gems set in a private and generous plot of circa half an acre, just off the renowned and exclusive Milton Lane. Built in 1953 by a local builder James Pope for his own residence, 53 Milton Lane really does have it all. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, study, utility, WC and veranda to the ground floor, whilst to the first floor are four bedrooms (one with ensuite facilities) and a family bathroom. The property has undergone a full refurbishment throughout providing the latest in high quality appliances and fittings including a Crown Imperial kitchen and Intergas boiler. The ground floor is incredibly spacious and versatile, with the dining room, sitting room and study all flexible in their uses depending on one’s needs. The bedroom quarters are made up of three doubles and a single which will appeal to families and/or couples who need additional space for extended family and friends. Such is the size of the plot, there is potential for further extension, subject to the usual consents. There is a noticeably light aspect throughout number 53 with views to the grounds at every turn, emphasising the sense of privacy and space. It is a privilege to be able to market this home because it is far more than just bricks and mortar. It is a house that offers a rare lifestyle, combining the very best of both worlds – a city centre property with the feel of a countryside idyll. Whether it’s the stunning grounds, beautiful accommodation or proximity to the centre of Wells, it is one of the finest homes the city has to offer.

53 Milton Lane sits on the upper end section of Milton Lane, close to the excellent facilities provided in the city centre. There is renowned schooling within walking distance in the form of primary schools as well as The Blue School and Wells Cathedral School. Wells has a bustling High Street, with a wide selection of national and independent retailers as well as numerous coffee shops, bistros and restaurants. There are famous landmarks, such as the Cathedral and Bishops Palace and there is a twice weekly produce market in the Market Square. For those looking for access further afield, there is a bus/coach station in the centre and the A39 provides access to Bristol and Bath, whilst a short drive to the south are Glastonbury and Street.

The property is approached by a private driveway giving access to off-road parking for numerous cars, an integral garage to the fore and a further ‘secret’ garage to the right. There is also a gated pedestrian access. The grounds extend to circa half an acre, surrounding the property to all sides and are made up of sweeping lawns, stone stair cases, abundant floral borders and refined hedge lines. The garden has certainly been the pride of all previous occupants, evidence of which is clear, with an array of wonderful flowers and mature shrubs which surprise and delight at every turn. There is also a traditional, large wood-frame greenhouse which will appeal to keen horticulturalists and a charming veranda opens out onto a raised area of patio. It is an idyllic spot for alfresco dining and entertaining in the warmer months. A very special garden for children’s play and those who enjoy the outdoor life
