Property SummaryWell House, 79 High Street, is a delightful period town house nestled in the heart of the fashionable town of Bruton and is an absolute gem both inside and out. Recently renovated with love and affection this property is immaculately presented with fine attention to detail, an eye for design and exciting and innovative landscaping.
The pretty front door, pleasingly central to this perfectly symmetrical property, opens into an inner hallway leading to two spacious receptions, both naturally light and offering plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining - one with a wood-burning stove and the other with a period fireplace. The newly fitted kitchen, fully equipped, offers plenty of storage space and superb views of the glorious garden. An adjoining breakfast room, naturally bathed in daylight through the numerous windows, is an idyllic position to enjoy a morning coffee and with direct access to the impressive garden beyond. A downstairs loo, with shower, is positioned adjacent to a utility room – perfect for hiding away white goods or wellies.
Upstairs, leading from a spacious landing overlooking the garden, are three ample double bedrooms with tasteful décor and a stylish family bathroom.
The recently landscaped garden is an outstanding triumph with a succession of levels creating separate zones using a mixture of lawn and gravel. This visually stunning garden has been carefully considered with a combination of weathered stone and paving whilst complimenting the original flora and many varieties of fruit trees. A perfect space has been created on the lower level for a table and chairs and room for a BBQ. The original "Well" has been imaginatively transformed into a fire pit - excellent for toasting marshmallows on a cool summers’ night!
Well House has an additional benefit of a garage located within a minute-walk walk from the property and offers excellent storage space and parking for two cars
