About the Property

An interesting and tremendously appealing 17th century cottage in a tucked away location on the eastern side of Wells and just off the Bath Road. The cottage has bags of character including replica 17th century oak windows with stained and painted glass panes and deep window sills, exposed wooden window lintels and fireplaces. The accommodation is comfortable and includes a sitting room, kitchen and dining room, two double bedrooms and a dressing room, bathroom and utility room. Outside are attractive, mature gardens with a Koi pond, a gated drive with a double garage and a single carport. The property offers potential to add a conservatory or extension – subject to the necessary permissions and consents.

About the Inside

An open fronted porch shelters the front door that opens into the hall. On the left is the utility room and, on the right, the bathroom with a Japanese style tub, hand basin, wc and heated towel rail. Ahead of the hall is the kitchen and dining room with a larder cupboard, sink unit with cupboards under, space for appliances, cast iron fireplace and French doors that open out into an enclosed courtyard. From the kitchen a door leads to the dual aspect sitting room that has a fireplace with a wood burner and two cupboards. A door leads to a wood staircase and on to the landing. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with fireplaces, some nice exposed stone around windows and lovely views across the garden towards Tor Woods. Off the landing is a dressing room with full length mirrors.

About the Outside

Number 1 Whitegates is approached over a drive from Bath Road and through a solid wood gate onto the driveway that leads to the double garage and car port. The south facing garden is a tranquil and relaxing space and has a lawn along with mature planting of trees and shrubs and includes acers, an olive tree, palm tree and attractive conifers. The focal point of the garden is a large pond with a Japanese style gravel garden adjacent and areas for sitting and alfresco dining.

About the Area

Bath Road is on the eastern side of Wells and joins St. Thomas Street which is one of the oldest streets in Wells. Number 1 Whitegates is just over half a mile from the magnificent Cathedral, Market Place and High Street. Close by are Tor Woods and the Cathedral fields which have beautiful walks which link into a huge number of footpaths most of which are well away from roads.


Wells itself has a superb range of amenities including many independent shops, cafes, theatre, banks, a cinema, leisure centre and a popular twice weekly market. There are excellent private and state schools including the Blue School and Wells Cathedral School along with primary schooling. The nearby Georgian city of Bath and the regional centre of Bristol are also within easy commuting distance, while Castle Cary Station, with links to London Paddington and Exeter, is a 12-mile drive away. Bristol International Airport is only 17 miles.


Heading out of Wells along St. Thomas Street, continue into Bath Road, passing Budgens garage on your right. Travel for a further 500 yards and 1 Whitegates can be found on the right hand side, set back from the road.
