About This Property

This well cared for modern bungalow, complete with a large conservatory, sits in a highly favoured residential area of Wells. It offers an unrivalled position at the end of a quiet, tucked away cul-de-sac and has a beautifully kept and well-planted corner plot garden, directly adjoining the Cathedral school playing fields, enjoying views towards Tor Woods and to the top towers of the highly impressive Wells Cathedral. EPC rating E.

Barkham Close was built in the 1970’s and is named after the founder of the Blue School in Wells in 1654, Ezekiel Barkham. Sitting on the fringe of the city and enjoying amazing sunsets to the West, it provides an ideal area for those looking for a very special, unique city bungalow. The property has been in the same ownership since 2008 and has provided a much cherished and loved home, which has been well maintained throughout this time and has double glazing and Economy 7 heating. It is well laid out with a private side access door, with gated access behind a wall that runs the right perimeter of the Bungalow. There is a central entrance hall giving access to all the rooms, complete with loft access to a large open loft area and a useful airing cupboard. The kitchen and sitting room both sit at the rear of the property with views towards the Cathedral school playing fields and an uninterrupted vista, which from the kitchen includes a beautiful outlook over the garden to the city and to the Cathedral itself. A generous size conservatory sits off the sitting room, again enjoying the views. The two double bedrooms are to the front of the bungalow both with large windows providing bright airy bedrooms with the master being well fitted with a range of high-quality bedroom furniture providing generous storage and the accommodation is completed with an upgraded and modern shower room.

The sought after road of Barkham Close is to be found off Woodbury Avenue, which lies at the bottom end of Bath Road and benefits from a most pleasant footpath walk to the City Centre. There is a bus service on Bath Road if needed, as well as a convenience store. The City Centre is well known for its bustling High Street, with a wide selection of independent and national retailers together with numerous restaurants and coffee shops. There is a twice-weekly produce market in The Market Square and of course many cultural activities around the Cathedral and Bishops Palace.

The property has a generous frontage laid to lawn, with an area designated for parking and ample space alongside the bungalow to construct a garage, (subject of course to any necessary planning consents). A good size timber shed within the garden currently provides all the external storage space. The rear garden is very private, being separated from the close with a wall edging the parking area. The garden has been beautifully planted and designed around a glorious terrace, enjoying views towards The Cathedral and with a completely open boundary to the Cathedral School playing fields and Tor Woods beyond. The Lawn gently slopes down to a stream that runs the garden's perimeter, coming down from the Horrington and Haydon area which eventually filters down into the Bishops Palace moat.
