Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Approached along a gated driveway, Wells House occupies a private position set in approximately 12 acres in a rural yet accessible position.

The original part of the property is understood to date from 1760 and has since been substantially and tastefully extended to provide spacious five bedroom accommodation with three reception rooms, an open plan kitchen and a bar/games room on the ground floor.

The property would appeal to those looking for a lifestyle property or it could suit those with equestrian interests with the land, stables and other useful outbuildings.


Description

The entrance hall leads off in two directions. In one direction is the dining room, an open plan Moben kitchen and snug. The kitchen has a Rangemaster cooker, wall and base units and granite worktops. The utility room, shower room and rear entrance are situated off the snug.

In the other direction from the hall is an 'L' shaped sitting room with a large feature fireplace and double door providing access into the bar. The bar was created by the vendors and whilst this has never been run on a commercial basis it has been a great space for entertaining and wonderful for use as a games room. This room is open mainly to the rafters with exposed beams and there is a small galleried seating area which looks back down onto the bar area.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms with the master bedroom having en-suite facilities and a dressing room. There is also a separate shower room.

Gardens surround the property to three sides and are set mainly to lawn with various mature trees and shrubs. At the rear of the property is a parking area for several vehicles and a range of useful outbuildings.

There are paddocks to the front, side and rear of the property and there is a woodland which lead down to the banks of Roe Beck and Rush Gill.

At the rear of the property are a range of single storey outbuildings including; a garage block comprising a single garage and a double garage measuring 90m2 externally. Adjacent is a building which comprises stables, stores and a gym and measures 108m2 externally. In addition there is an open sided horse shelter/wood store and an additional single garage.
