DESCRIPTION An exceptional four double bedroom home beautifully renovated and situated on one of Wells' most sought after roads just minutes to both the city centre and open countryside.
The house has been sympathetically extended and significantly improved to maximize the abundant natural light which flows throughout the house. This is due to its south westerly aspect, large Velux windows, dual aspect rooms and corner bi folding doors that look out to the garden and the beautiful grade 2 listed wall to the rear.
The décor throughout the house is neutral and contemporary, blending together natural materials with clean lines to provide warm, light and inspiring living spaces.
Downstairs the house has been extended and completely re-designed. It now benefits from spacious open plan living with under floor heated oak flooring, a cleverly designed utility room and a separate large reception room currently used as a children's play room - this alternatively could be utilised as a 5th bedroom, study or music room.
A truly unique design feature of the downstairs is the completely open corner with bi-folding doors bringing a feeling of being outdoors whilst inside.
Upstairs the house has been extended to include four good size double bedrooms with cathedral spire views. This now includes an impressive dual aspect master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and solar powered Velux windows, integral mirrored double wardrobes and a beautifully finished en-suite shower room with rain shower head. Two further double bedrooms are spacious and include built in storage, with the fourth bedroom easily allowing for a double bed and furniture. The family bathroom benefits from a double ended bath with a powerful shower, and a Velux window.
OUTSIDE Outside, the peaceful garden is completely secluded with two conveniently located patio areas for outdoor dining and entertaining. The 2 sets of bi folding doors and french doors from the kitchen provide open access to the garden, creating a natural flow between the inside and outside areas of the property.
Approaching the property from North Road, the gravel driveway allows for 4/5 cars to park comfortably. Attached and integral to the house is a larger than average single garage with an electric door.
The garden is a blank canvas and has been designed to be low maintenance and safe for young children. With a little creativity, there is scope to landscape the garden further as well as easily increase the size by changing the boundary with the parking area.
