2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale


A stunning first floor, two bedroom apartment with it's own garden. Set within a beautiful, recently renovated and restored Georgian house in the very heart of the centre of Wells - within 200m of the High St, Cathedral and Market Place. The apartment benefits from an open plan living area, ensuite bedroom, family bathroom and a further double bedroom.

This handsome, Grade II listed house has been divided into separate apartments since 1937. Previously it had been used as both a convent and a school for young ladies. Having now been extensively refurbished and restored to exacting standards, all the apartments now offer the perfect balance of period features and modern convenience.

Upon entering via the front door is a generous communal hallway with an area for mail. Stairs lead to the first floor and the front door to Apartment Two. Upon entering the apartment is a hallway leading to all rooms and having a shelved utility cupboard, housing the hot water tank and having space and plumbing for a washing machine. From the hallway is the spacious open plan living room with wood plank floor. This light and spacious room benefits from an abundance of period features including; high ceilings, cornicing, picture rails, mantlepiece and an attractive ceiling rose. A large bay window and a smaller window to the side offer views out over the garden. There is plenty of space for comfortable seating and a large dining table. To one side is the kitchen with a range of cupboards with soft close, Shaker style, doors and drawers, integrated oven and microwave, induction hob, extractor hood and dishwasher, all topped with laminate worktops.

leading off the hall, the principal bedroom with windows to the front, is a good sized double and benefits from an ensuite shower room. The shower room comprises; shower, WC and wash basin and has striking high gloss wood effect tiles. The second bedroom, again a double, also has a front aspect and has triple built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom features a 'P' shaped bath with waterfall shower overhead, a wash basin and WC.


From the communal half landing, a glazed door leads to an external stone staircase, which in turn leads to gardens for all of the properties. The garden as a whole is divided to provide private gardens for each apartment. However, at the far end of the garden is a communal area with a pond.  The garden for Apartment Two can be found along the path on the right hand side and is laid to lawn with a newly planted hedge on the perimeter. The vendors have secured a permit parking space close to the property - which will be made available to the purchaser (the vendor is currently paying £984 per annum for this space)
