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 3 bedroom period family home offers attractive and flexible living, combined with a sunny south facing garden, extending to over 45 meters (over 147 ft.) EPC rating D.

Forming part of an attractive terrace where properties rarely change hands, on the eastern fringe of Wells and dating back to 1909, this delightful family home is offered with ‘no onward chain' and is being sold for the first time since 1947. The property had for many years been a cherished home with the extensive rear garden having once been a thriving vegetable patch, now laid to lawn and with a large entertaining area set off the rear and it offers an exciting opportunity to make a comfortable family home or as an investment as a popular rental property. The accommodation is typical of a Victorian property with a welcoming hallway and porch, two well-proportioned reception rooms both with fireplaces, the front offering an attractive bay window and the central room a quarry tiled floor. The kitchen sits to the rear with lovely views down the garden, a fitted pantry and a good range of units and ample workspace. On the first floor, are three bedrooms, a single room at the rear with exposed floorboards and lovely views extending to the golf course. The central bedroom again has good views and offers a comfortable double space complete with a fitted airing cupboard, with the remaining and largest of the bedrooms at the front with wonderful exposed floorboards and character fireplace. The white modern 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 & 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.

With unallocated parking available roadside, No.80 sits back from Bath Road with a walled frontage offering a low maintenance area with shaped topiary bush. The rear offers an extensive terrace, perfect for large family BBQ’s and al-fresco dining during the warmer months and to enjoy the southerly sunny aspect.
