Property SummaryConstructed of mellow stone with wooden cladding, number 10 The Mews is situated in a private access road just a short walk from the Market Place and wonderful Cathedral in Wells, Englands smallest city. Stylish contemporary design combines with environmentally sound technology, a low maintenance outside area and two car parking spaces. This is a perfect first home for a busy professional couple, small family or to enjoy as a second home in Somerset. The house feels spacious and the good quality of the materials used is evident throughout. The ground floor provides open plan living with tri-fold doors opening out onto the low maintenance courtyard. The stylish kitchen fits the scheme perfectly and appliances here include a ceramic touch control hob, a fan oven and microwave, integral larder fridge, under counter freezer and washing machine/tumble dryer. This open plan room leads to the sitting and dining area and there is also a useful storage cupboard for hoovers. The high grade oak flooring throughout this room has been carefully chosen from a sustainable source.
On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Currently the room at the rear which is wonderfully light is used as a second reception room. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes with wooden sliding doors. The fully tiled bathroom has a bath shaped to provide a shower area with a glass screen. On the second floor there is a beautiful master suite with walk in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. There are television aerial and phone points here.
Overall this house is decorated in a tasteful muted colour palette and exudes quality.
At the rear of the property a courtyard area is paved with a raised gravelled area constructed from reclaimed sleepers. This courtyard is enclosed by high wooden fencing panels and there is a rear access gate and steps which leads directly to the two allocated parking spaces (a bonus in the centre of this city) and also links to a footpath leading to walks on the edge of Tor woods or down to the Cathedral and market place via the Bishops Palace moat. The communal gardens in the development have been carefully maintained and are attractively planted.
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.
