About the inside
The entrance porch brings you into the hallway with doors to the living room and kitchen. The living room to the front enjoys exposed flagstone flooring, fireplace with woodburning stove, and the original shop window.
A door leads through to the dining room which has an internal window into the kitchen, a raised fireplace with a woodburnng stove, and a modern double glazed window to the rear looking onto the garden. Painted wooden stairs lead to the first floor and a doorway leads into the kitchen.
The newly installed kitchen to the rear of the home is tastefully fitted with a pale quartz worktop with a Belfast sink inset, pale oak cupboards and drawers, integrated dishwasher, and open shelving. There is space for a large gas range and fridge freezer. A glazed door leads outside and another door leads to the inner hall with access to a cloakroom and a separate utility room with built in cupboards, sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. There is direct access to the garden.
Upstairs on the first floor there are three generous double bedrooms. The main bedroom has a large walk-in cupboard which could be utilised as an en-suite shower room. The newly fitted family bathroom has a freestanding roll top bath and separate shower. Another large double bedroom with a walk-in storage area can be found on the top floor with views across the rooftops of Wells towards St Cuthberts Church.
About the outside.
Immediately to the rear is a secluded walled seating area bordered by raised beds. The central path leads across the level lawn to the stone built annexe currently used as a gym, with a kitchen and bathroom which could provide an ideal work from home space.
