The Property is for sale by "iam-sold Ltd"

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with Traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer’s solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% subject to a minimum of £6,000 including VAT which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The buyer will be required to sign an Acknowledgment of Reservation form to confirm acceptance of terms prior to solicitors being instructed. Copies of the Reservation form and all terms and conditions can be found in the Legal Pack which can be downloaded for free from the auction section of our website or requested from our Auction Department.
Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the Starting Bid. Both the Starting Bid and Reserve Price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by “iam-sold Ltd”.

The sitting room opens into a small enclosed courtyard with the parking area to the side.

5 St Cuthbert's Lodge is very well positioned being situated very close to the high street and local amenities.

Wells is the smallest Cathedral city in England, and offers all the usual amenities that you would expect in a small town including banks, doctors surgeries, dentists and a selection of primary schools and the excellent Blue School and Wells Cathedral school. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a variety of independent shops and restaurants and pubs as well as a twice weekly market and a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose. At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street in Europe).
The Wells festivals are increasing in popularity each year with the Literary Festival now taking place over two weeks and attracting big names in the literary world, the very well attended Food Festival and many regular Arts festivals. With both the Cathedral School and the Cathedral itself there are endless opportunities for musical concerts, plus there are regular shows and comedy nights in the Little Theatre.

Both Bath (21 miles) and Bristol (22 miles) are within commuting distance and there is a main line railway station with links to London in Castle Cary 13 miles away. Street and Glastonbury are 20 minutes away and Bristol airport is an easy 30-minute drive.

There are excellent state and Independent schools in the area including highly regarded primary schools in Wells, Wells Cathedral Prep, Millfield Prep and senior schools, the popular Wells Blue Secondary School, Wells Cathedral School, Wedmore first school Academy, Hugh Sexeys Middle School and Kings of Wessex upper School, Downside School and All Hallows Preparatory School.
