To the north of the house is a neat garden in front of the house protected and screened by a stone wall from North Road. On the sunny, south and private side of the house is a well planned garden approached by 3 sets of double French doors from the main living areas.


North Road is a popular residential area, which runs between the top of St. Thomas Street, past the Cathedral School towards New Street entering Wells. It's an excellent residential area within easy walking distance of the centre and amenities and schools. The Cathedral is within 700 yards.

It was extensively improved a few years ago and the owners have done further work to increase the living area. This has been done by taking the large garage and adapting it for use as a further living area, currently a games and store room. In doing so they have retained a roller door allowing it to revert to garage use should an owner so wish.


The front door opens into a central hall with a cloakroom and staircase. The heart of the house is the splendid open plan kitchen/dining/living area. This has floor & wall cupboards (carousel and self-closing drawers) and granite work surfaces, which extend over a peninsular range to provide a large breakfast bar. Appliances include a large Smeg range cooker, extractor and an integral Bosch dishwasher. Space & plumbing connection for an American fridge. There's plenty of space for a table and chairs and the remainder of the room combines with the garden room to provide lots of living area.


The sitting room is a well portioned room with a fireplace (with woodburner) and double french doors opening to the garden.
The games room is a big asset to the house and also has French doors to the garden. In addition it has an extensive fitted range of store cupboards and a roller door which enables the possibility of returning to a garage if required.
