Property SummaryKeward Mill was originally a 16th century, water powered, corn mill that has been recently converted to create an individual home with great views over open fields and towards Glastonbury Tor beyond, with allocated parking. This interesting conversion is immaculately presented, newly renovated and is located on the outskirts of Wells just a few minutes walk from the city centre.
The house is light and bright with loads of windows, immaculately presented and ready to move straight into. The front door opens into a large kitchen/breakfast/dining room with engineered oak flooring with the unusual addition of a large cellar accessed through an electric glass door (just waiting for the wine!) as well as a useful utility cupboard plumbed for your washing machine and doors to the shared patio area. On the first floor is a large l-shaped reception room with doors to steps leading onto a private terrace, there is also a separate loo on this floor. Further on up to the second floor, master bedroom with an ensuite shower room, double bedroom and a great family bathroom, up again to the third floor to this fabulous room, that could be used as a further bedroom or office/hobby room in the eaves of the building with views of Glastonbury Tor and open fields beyond. The rooms all benefit from double doors with Juliet balconies and overlook the stream that becomes Keward Brook which would have once powered this old mill.
There is a private raised terrace for a table and chairs to have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, as well as a large communal grassed garden under the mature trees giving you the best of both worlds - no maintenance. The allocated parking is located immediately next to the house.
The Cathedral City of Wells offers all the usual attractions of a market town including banks, doctors surgeries and dentists with supermarkets including Waitrose, Morrisons and Tesco, a cinema and a market every Wednesday and Saturday. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a variety of independent shops, pubs and restaurants including the award winning "Goodfellows". At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishops 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 over two weeks and attracting big names, 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. Golf Clubs are in Wells and on the Mendips. Sailing and fishing can be found on the Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes.
Bath and Bristol are within commuting distance and there is a main line railway station with links to London (Paddington) in Castle Cary just a few miles away with trains to London in approximately 90 minutes. Street and Glastonbury are 20 minutes away. Bristol airport is an easy 30 minute drive.
There are excellent state and independent schools in Wells, including the extremely sought after Wells Blue secondary school, plus Wells Cathedral School, Downside School, All Hallows Preparatory School and Millfield all within close proximity.
Mains water, electricity and gas
