Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding and individually built detached house, completed in late 2011 and being within walking distance of the City Centre. Designed with low running costs and minimal maintenance in mind, the accommodation offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sitting room, stunning kitchen/dining/family room, study/snug and utility. Garage, parking and gardens.

Sunnyside is a fine example of an individually built detached house, designed by award winning local architect, Paul Kellett. The property was completed in the autumn of 2011 and has subsequently been nominated for Best Individual Dwelling in The Local Authority Building Excellence Awards 2012. The individual design promotes low maintenance together with low running costs and with rising energy bills, this feature will no doubt be of specific interest to purchasers. As well as the latest insulation standards, Sunnyside features a highly efficient central heating system with under floor heating throughout, serviced by an external air sourced pump system. As the floor plan depicts, there is more of an open plan feel to the ground floor, therefore allowing a fantastic amount of natural light throughout. Another advantageous feature is the first floor bathroom layout where four bedrooms directly share two bathrooms in a clever 'Jack and Jill' arrangement.

Sunnyside is to be found on a private lane, well off the Bath Road and being located just under one mile from the city centre. The property is very well placed for access to Wells Golf Club as well as a local post office and mini-mart. Wells is the smallest cathedral city in England lying in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Mendip Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wells has local markets twice a week and many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. There is a busy local shopping centre, cinema, leisure centre, golf course and a broad range of societies and activities. Excellent State & Private schools in the area including Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, all Hallows and Millfield. The major towns of the area are Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil and are all within commuting distance. Castle Cary is the nearest mainline train station with fast links to London, Paddington.
