Overview

GUIDE PRICE £300,000

Property Description: Guide Price: £300,000 to £325,000. Reported to be 'one of the great sights of England', the stunning views overlooking Wells cathedral aren't the only pull to this one-of-a-kind 18th Century Grade II listed maisonette. Situated in arguably the most prestigious address in the city, this property has recently been beautifully refurbished to a high standard whilst retaining many of its original features, making it the perfect example of traditional charm meets modern chic.

Down several private steps from the Cathedral Green itself you will find the entrance to the property which leads to a flagstone floor hallway fitted with a storage cupboard. At the end of the hallway is the original wooden staircase that leads to the rest of the apartment. The heart of this home is the light and bright open plan kitchen/living area which is situated on the second floor. The modern kitchen has wooden worktops, fitted units, a breakfast bar, a stylish sink, induction hob and cooker plus space for a dishwasher. At the far end of the room, a feature fireplace with Bath Stone surround adds additional character to the room. The roof lights provide superb views over The Green to the cathedral and there are contemporary French doors that lead out onto the roof terrace. There is also a cloakroom and a separate utility room on this floor, with its own sink and space for both a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

There aren't many properties where the superior view can be seen from practically every room in the house, however in this maisonette, the cathedral views can also be marvelled at from the sash windows in both the principal bedroom as well as the additional bedroom/study, which are located on the first floor. The period features are prominent on this floor with mostly original floor boards, charming window seats and exposed beams throughout. The modern touch is also prevalent here with traditional style radiators in both bedrooms and a panelled wall in the principal bedroom. Both rooms are light and bright and there is a hallway outside the principal bedroom that is large enough to serve as a dressing area or study area. The walk-in shower room is stylishly decorated and is fitted with a waterfall shower.

Outside: On the second floor, the black contemporary French doors lead from the kitchen/living area out onto a very private, decked roof terrace. The terrace is enclosed by a stone wall on one side and cladding on the other three walls. At the front of the property there is a small area of lawn ideal for table and chairs and beyond that, the beautiful Cathedral Green. There is street parking available and space in front of the property that could accomodate one small car.

This would make a fabulous investment property with an estimated revenue of £31,500 per annum. It would also make a great 'lock up and leave' property for those looking for a pied-à-terre in the heart of the beautiful city of Wells.

Location: Situated on the picturesque Cathedral Green with the most desirable view in the city, this property is conveniently set in a central location close to Wells high street and the market place as well as being just a short walk from the surrounding open countryside including the beautiful Palace Fields. The delightful city of Wells has a bustling High Street and provides a range of local amenities with four supermarkets (Waitrose being the closest), a cinema, leisure centre, several dentists and doctors, some fabulous independent shops and galleries as well as numerous coffee shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from including the superb 'Root' which was recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand and happens to be literally right on the doorstep. As well as the Cathedral, there are several other famous historical landmarks including the Bishop Palace, Vicars' Close, and a twice weekly produce market that has been going on since the 12th century. The property sits just off the A39 which provides access to Bath and Bristol as well as being just 15 miles from the mainline rail link at Castle Cary and 16 miles from the international Bristol airport. There are excellent state schools in the vicinity: Stoberry Park School, St Cuthbert's CofE Junior School, St Joseph and St Teresa Catholic Primary School and The Blue School as well as independent schools including Wells Cathedral School on your doorstep. All Hallows Prep School, Downside and Millfield are just a short drive away.
