Property description

This handsome 1930's property offers oodles of flexible living space having been extensively renovated and extended to create a perfect home within a short walk of the beautiful city of Wells. With garage, parking and garden it ticks many boxes. The contemporary tone of the house is set as soon as you enter the generous hall with its "black and white chequered" floor tiles and decorated in slate grey paint. This light filled house is organised in a predominantly open plan layout on the ground floor having been designed to bring the family together with the kitchen and the receptions rooms flowing into each other whilst retaining their individual identity. The kitchen is at the heart of this delightful home with bespoke cabinetry arranged around a central island and with a fabulous porcelain tiled floor. A wide archway with side carved wooden pillars opens into the beautiful light filled living room with striking fireplace and bay widow. The custom-made conservatory, with underfloor heating makes a fabulous dining space with French doors leading onto the garden creating the perfect indoor-outdoor flow. Both the hall and conservatory lead into a generous sized reception room which could be used as a playroom, snug or additional bedroom.The spacious cloakroom/utility can easily accommodate a shower for anyone wanting a downstairs bedroom with almost en-suite facilities. Bespoke cupboards provide space for a tumble dryer and washing machine. On the first floor are four bedrooms. The peaceful principal bedroom is triple aspect with views over the rooftops and beyond to the Mendip Hills. There is space for a dressing area which leads to an en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms and the family bathroom complete the first floor. The family bathroom has wainscot panelling and is attractively finished with a double ended bath and walk in shower. OutsideThe house stands back from Portway and has stone walling with a pedestrian gate and low maintenance garden. Planted with shrubs and pathway to the front door and double wrought iron gates leading to the side. The rear garden is currently designed for low maintenance, being a mix of lawn and terrace, which is the perfect place for the setting sun bounded by hedgerow and being a blank canvas to create your own English country garden. To the rear of the property double solid wood gates give access to a quiet lane where the car can be parked, the garage sits at the end of the garden with access onto the lane.
