This week's property of the week from our sponsor Roderick Thomas is a real gem. With a great location near the centre of Wells, plenty of space and oodles of potential it's the sort of property that is sure to be snapped up quickly.
The Old Farmhouse is a charming five-bed Georgian House on Bath Road. It has a wealth of period features and offers really good, flexible accommodation with plenty of living space, bedrooms and bathrooms plus a small annexe and ample parking.
The front door opens into the hallway which has Victorian tiles, a dado rail and the staircase. To the right of the hall is the cosy snug with floorboards, window seat, built in store cupboards and a gas fire in a tiled cast iron fireplace with a slate mantlepiece.
Adjacent is a large sitting room with fitted shelving and a French door to the side patio garden.
Also approached from the hall is the dining room with floorboards, a window seat and a fireplace with a wood burning stove.
Beyond is the kitchen with a breakfast bar, sink, tiled splashbacks and an electric Aga. A pine door leads into a small utility room which has the gas boiler, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and fitted wall cupboards.
From the kitchen a door leads to a side hall lobby with doors to the front and back gardens. Also, a door leads to the self-contained annexe which has a small entrance hall, sitting room/bedroom, kitchen and newly re-fitted shower room. This wing can be used as additional accommodation to the main house or many other uses including a home office, guest wing, B&B, granny annexe etc.
Upstairs, the main bedroom has fitted wardrobes, cupboards and an en suite shower room. Another bedroom also has an en suite shower room and a third bedroom has a basin and fitted wardrobe and drawers. The fourth bedroom has a fitted store cupboard.
The family bathroom has both a bath and shower.
The front entrance drive opens into a large parking area with space for several cars. A path leads to the front verandah looking out onto bay trees. At the rear of the house is a courtyard paved terrace garden with raised borders planted with a range of mature shrubs and a picket gate to the driveway.
The house also has a larger walled garden with great privacy. It's partly lawned with paved pathways, a terrace and a garden shed.
The Old Farmhouse is on the market with Roderick Thomas for £675,000.
