Once an Estate Lodge, the property has been extended to provide a secluded, well positioned home that enjoys generous accommodation and good-sized grounds, though still offers plenty of scope for modernisation and extending (subject to planning permission). North Lodge is situated in a rural location, yet offers access to local amenities, with Wells only around three miles away.
Currently the property boasts three / four double bedrooms, a 19ft x 13ft Sitting Room with wood burning stove, a Conservatory with views over the gardens and to the woodland beyond, and a Kitchen with separate Utility. The Family Bathroom has been updated in recent years and offers a modern matching suite.
This is a nicely presented home; well loved and well maintained by the current owners, though does offer the opportunity for the new owners to make their own mark.
North Lodge is set in grounds of just under an acre and has extensive gardens; well stocked with mature plants and trees with plenty of space to grow your own vegetables. To one side, there is a greenhouse and a store for garden tools as well as a detached block-built workshop with electricity and wood burning stove, offering potential for an office.
There is a gated entrance to the property’s own protected woodland with a variety of English woodland flora. There are three wood sheds and, to one side of the property, there are fabulous views to open countryside.
The driveway provides off road parking for a number of cars and there is a Large Detached Single Garage.
Well positioned on the Mendip Hills, North Lodge is situated within easy reach of local amenities. Close by, Wells offers a range of shopping facilities including a high proportion of independent shops and boutiques, banks, restaurants, public houses, cinema and churches. The stunning market square holds a farmers’ market on Wednesday and Saturday. The nearby Georgian city of Bath and the regional centre of Bristol are also within easy commuting distance, with rail link from Bath to London only a 90 minute train journey, and Castle Cary Station, with links to London Paddington and Exeter, is within 14 miles. Bristol International Airport is only 17 miles. There are excellent schools in Wells and the surrounding area including highly regarded primary schools, the extremely sought-after Wells Blue secondary school and Wells Cathedral School. Sporting facilities in the area include Mendip Shooting Ground, Wells and Mendip Golf Clubs, sailing and fishing at Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes and there is a leisure centre in Wells offering a variety of recreational facilities.
Proceed out of Wells on the A39 towards Bristol. Follow this road for about three miles and you will see our ‘For Sale’ on the right-hand side, just opposite the turning for Priddy.
