Enjoying far reaching views and offering a wonderful home just minutes from the Cathedral City of Wells, this beautiful historic stone cottage has quite outstanding, fully landscaped gardens, of 0.78 of an acre, including wildlife-friendly, lifestyle and nature areas, with a stream meandering around the rear boundary and the remains of an old tumbledown stone building, formerly a cider barn, offering potential for annexe/holiday let accommodation. EPC rating D.

Worth Cottage offers a wonderful combination of an incredibly attractive and well laid out older stone house, with an array of original retained character dating back from the original house in the 17th Century, combined with additions in more modern times which transform the living style of the home to one that blends perfectly with modern family living. This is complemented by a quite outstanding garden, which has been well planned and in our clients' words, is a 'very special garden to enjoy and a privilege to have worked on'. The property offers spacious living throughout, with this being most apparent when entering the wonderful reception hall, providing a unique area to greet guests or family. Set to the right is a generous size study, complete with fireplace. To the left of the hall are the main principle living spaces, a dining room (currently used as a snug space) with an eye-catching feature fireplace with attractive stone and fitted wood burner. Off this room, with a large opening joining the spaces together is the drawing room, being of a particularly good size and tucked at the back of the house looking out into the gardens and again with a traditional fireplace, plus the lovely addition of French doors into the garden. The farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room sits at the far end of the house offering a wonderful social space for families or those that enjoy entertaining offering a triple aspect room, with an Aga and island. The ground floor is completed by a couple of useful working spaces to the rear including a boot room, utility and cloakroom. A door leads from the boot room, heading into the vegetable garden, providing useful working access for those with dogs. The first-floor offers a beautifully proportioned main bedroom with walk-in closet and there are then three further bright and airy double bedrooms along with a shower room and bathroom.

Worth is a small hamlet situated in a highly convenient position close to Wells and adjacent to the village of Wookey. Wells, roughly a 5-minute drive, is a thriving small city famous for its beautiful Cathedral and offering many nearby local attractions including Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves. The City has an enviable range of further amenities and facilities with excellent schooling at all levels, both State and Private. Also, a short drive from the property is the highly sought-after village of Wedmore which offers good road links to the M5 motorway and Chew Valley to the north, a short hop from Bristol Airport.

The area and grounds in all extend to 0.78 of an acre of beautifully tendered and well planned gardens. The vendors have tried to offer different style 'rooms' to various sections of the gardens, ranging from wilded nature-friendly spaces to a lovely orchard space, along with a beautifully planted and designed more formal garden set around the house, along with a tumbledown stone barn, which subject to any necessary local consents appears ideal for the creation of home workspaces, or a step further to Annexe or Holiday let accommodation. (The previous occupants had planning permission which lapsed in 2015 when the current owners bought the house). Ample parking is also available to the front of this area. The last section of garden sits to the rear of the house, which offers a range of vegetable beds, store sheds, chicken run, greenhouse and fruit cages and a further large open-sided modern store barn sits in the far North West Corner.
