A simply wonderful thatched Grade II cottage of great historical interest, its origins are believed to date back to the 17th Century. More recently the cottage has been extended on the ground floor adding a most stunning vaulted and beamed kitchen / family room, whilst elsewhere internally the cottage has been carefully restored, providing for a most delightful family home that affords well apportioned accommodation of approximately 2,471 sq ft in size, incorporating an integral vaulted & beamed barn / garage, perfect for conversion to form an additional reception room with bedroom over.

The property is formally entered via the reception hall, which opens through to the study and cellar, then branches off one way to the sitting room and the other way the dining room, both afforded lovely fireplaces, whilst to the dining room an impressive inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling set forth a most charismatic ambience. Off the sitting room the vaulted and beamed barn / garage is to be found, whilst through the dining room, the vaulted and beamed kitchen / family room provides a most pleasing aspect over the grounds through the wide glazed and timbered bay area. From the kitchen / family room access is afforded to the utility room, and in internal hall leading to the shower room and 4th bedroom.

The charming staircase to the first floor rises from the reception hall to the landing, affording direct access to the vaulted and beamed master bedroom, 2 further part vaulted and beamed bedrooms, and the part vaulted and beamed family bathroom, showcasing a spacious bath set in Carrara marble.

Wells Head has been successfully blended with traditional construction methods in tune with its long standing heritage, successfully combining more contemporary open plan living with that of a rather more traditional and nature, affording impressive vaulted and beamed accommodation that benefits from a period ambience throughout, in addition to embracing outside living to inside living, with early viewing advised.

Elevated to Newbury Road, a quiet country lane which leads out of the historic centre of East Hendred and up to open farmland, the cottage commands a private setting, accessed over an initially shared driveway on to it’s own private gravelled driveway and forecourt, affording ample parking for numerous vehicles.
