Dating back to pre 1900 this wonderful family home has all the key features of a house of this age with attractive fireplaces, high ceilings and decorative coving and cornices along with deceptively spacious accommodation offering plenty of space for a family to grow into or for those who enjoy having guests to stay. The property has been fully upgraded during the client's ownership including the kitchen, bathroom, windows and high-quality plantation-style fitted shutters. The welcoming family accommodation starts from the traditional entrance hall, with the principal reception room running alongside, with stylish panelling and 2 fireplaces, plus a large fitted seat area within the feature bay window, giving plenty of flexibility and space to relax. A cloakroom and utility cupboard sits under the stairs before you head into the dining room with panelling matching the rest of the house. The kitchen is at the rear with French doors out to the rear garden. The kitchen offers bespoke beautifully fitted units, a full range of integrated appliances, plus for the keen cooks an induction range style hob, with gas wok ring, plus double eye level ovens. To the first floor, the landing splits at the rear, giving access to a study plus the family bathroom with a traditional high-quality range of sanitary ware, including a feature roll-top bath and large walk-in shower. The master and second bedrooms are found off the main landing, both being spacious doubles and the master being the full width of the house and including a generous range of well fitted modern wardrobes. The second floor offers a further large double bedroom with generous amounts of under eaves fitted and accessible storage. Lovely views over the city are on offer towards St. Cuthbert's Church.

Wells is the smallest city in England and offers a vibrant High Street with a variety of independent shops and restaurants as well as a twice-weekly market and a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose. Amenities include a leisure centre, independent cinema and a theatre. Bristol and Bath lie c.22 miles to the north and north-east respectively with mainline train stations to London at Castle Cary (c.11 miles) and Bristol International Airport is c.15 miles to the northwest. Of particular note is the variety of well-regarded schools in both the state and private sectors in Wells and the surrounding area.

Set up from Portway with red brick front boundary wall and pedestrian gate, with the front garden area laid to slate with two planted beds running alongside and space for planters and pots.

The rear garden offers an initial lower terrace with raised planters alongside, leading up into the main garden, with fitted seating area ideal for entertaining friends or al-fresco dining in the warmer months. A modern purpose-built timber entertaining space sits at the end of the garden including a door out to the passageway providing pedestrian rear access. This undercover area offers a wonderful space for relaxing and spending time with friends and family and it includes fitted bench seats and an outdoor kitchen space. With little time and expense, this could offer an ideal area to convert, with doors and insulation, into an enclosed space which could provide an office, games room or studio depending on any new buyer's needs.
