DESCRIPTION Situated in the heart of the city, just a 'stone's throw' from both the High Street and the Market Place and adjacent to the park is this superb three bedroom town house with courtyard garden, garage and parking.
Upon entering the property is a bright entrance hall with a door giving access to the integrated garage and a cloakroom with WC and wash basin sitting neatly beneath the stairs. The kitchen/breakfast room has tiled flooring and kitchen in a 'U' shaped configuration comprising white units with integrated Zanussi Fridge Freezer, Zanussi eye level double oven, gas hob, integrated dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine. To the other end of the kitchen breakfast room is ample space for a table to seat four to six people, French doors lead out to the private courtyard garden.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where there is a landing area with useful built-in storage box. The sitting/dining room is a bright and spacious 'L' shaped room which naturally divides into two distinct areas. The sitting room has two windows overlooking the communal gardens and a side view of the bandstand in the neighbouring park. The dining area flows directly from the sitting room and has a window with a front aspect.
On the second floor are three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a window overlooking the communal gardens and benefits from an en-suite shower area comprising a shower cubicle and wash hand basin with vanity unit beneath. The second of the bedrooms is a good size double and has a window with views to the front and a side view of Wells Bowls Club, situated in the adjacent park. The third bedroom, a single overlooks the communal gardens. The family bathroom has a roof window, WC, basin, bath and heated towel rail.
OUTSIDE To the front of the property is a driveway offering parking for one car and an integrated garage with an electric 'up and over' door. There is a small low maintenance gravelled area planted with mature shrubs and the house is separated from the neighbouring properties with a low hedge.
To the rear of the property is a small courtyard garden enclosed by wrought iron railings. This is laid mainly to paving with areas of planting around the perimeter. A metal gate leads through to the secure communal garden.
