Property SummaryDefinitely one of the best houses in Glastonbury, this light filled and spacious characterful house is very close to the centre and yet it has a peaceful feel about it and lovely views.
On arrival at 17 Wells Road walking through the porch with original stained glass windows, you know you are getting everything you would hope for in a Victorian property- high ceilings with cornicing details, working fireplaces, lots of very large sash windows, and a very pretty walled garden. In addition to the period features this house provides modern facilities such as stylish bathrooms, two of which are en-suite, a modern bespoke fitted kitchen, oak flooring, a fabulous large deck and a converted cellar that is a fully useable room.
The current owners have lovingly and carefully turned this property into a striking house set over four floors which is very light and spacious. Features such as the kitchen/dining room leading out through french doors to the very large deck set the tone for a lifestyle combining style and plenty of space for entertaining. The two very large reception rooms provide plenty of room for a large family or someone who desires lots of space.
There are five good sized bedrooms over the top two floors, the top two with en-suite bathrooms and on the first floor there is also a small study room.
On the ground floor there is also a very useful utility room.
The garden is definitely a feature of this house and has been cleverly landscaped to combine the look of a walled Victorian garden with the large modern deck. There are areas of lawn, mature trees and shrubs and it is obvious that this very pretty garden has been carefully maintained.
At the front of the house there is parking for two cars and a few minutes walk away there is a double garage.
17 Wells Road is set just off the top of the High Street, so it is very close to the action, but the views from the rear of the house would suggest you are living in a village property with beautiful views of trees, gardens and rooftops.
Glastonbury is a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.
There are excellent state and independent schools in the vicinity including Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, St Dunstans in Glastonbury, Blue School Wells, Strode College in Street, numerous local primary schools plus All Hallows and the Bruton Schools.
Glastonbury is about 9 miles from Castle Cary Railway Station, which has mainline rail service from Castle Cary to London (Paddington) in circa 2 hours. Bristol and Exeter Airports are both within about 1 hour’s drive offering connections around the UK, Europe and to other destinations.
Mains water, electricity gas and drainage.
In Glastonbury drive up the High Street and at the top turn left in Wells Road, 17 Wells Road will be found on the left hand side between Butt Close and St Edmunds Road
