Property Summary6 Chamberlain Street is an elegant, Grade II listed three bedroom townhouse, located in the centre of Wells, with tall sash windows, maximising the light with an attractive courtyard garden at the rear.
The front door opens from Chamberlain Street into a hallway with built-in cupboards. This leads into a light and airy living space which, currently, has been apportioned to make a carpeted seating area to the front, with an electric stove on the hearth, and a dining area to the rear with a tiled floor and French doors leading out to the courtyard. The kitchen is fitted with units in a pretty duck egg colour, has a terracotta ceramic floor and a range cooker, and two windows which look out to the courtyard.
From a corner of the living room, a turned staircase leads up to the first floor. A characterful nook in the wall on the way up is perfect for books, and on the landing there is an original panelled wall. Two double bedrooms at the front enjoy a handsome outlook over historic Chamberlain Street, and the largest of the two has built-in wardrobes. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and cupboards housing the boiler and hot water tank. There is also a further, separate loo. A second turned staircase winds up to the top floor bedroom in the eaves and an en-suite shower room.
To the rear is a private courtyard, enclosed by the white painted walls of adjoining period properties - the perfect setting for a pretty container garden and dining al-fresco.
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, Downside School and All Hallows Preparatory School.
