This very pretty home has not been available to buy for most of a century. It has been in the family since the 1930?s and has been very well looked after. Aside from the views (which are lovely), another of its assets is the very large, double garage which provides parking for the home. It is very large and was once a two-storey barn, we are told. Now, it offers ample parking. There are two large vehicles and a trailer attached to one in there along with plenty of space for benches and tools. With Light, power and a water supply, a few steps lead up from the back door to the garden (and two further sheds, one with power also). The garden is level with the roof of the garage here and it easy to imagine how the old barn was accessed, walking straight in to the first floor, then down, then out. I wonder if one could put another enclosure on this now? It would need the planning consents naturally, but it would make a great office or studio. It would have amazing views too! Interesting.
What we have now though has proven to be plenty for some 90 years, so let?s walk through. Starting in the garden, where we left off, we head North (as the garden faces due South) via the winding path, past the lawn and up to a fenced path. The path leads to the courtyard at the back of the home, so the garden is separated from the main and the path crosses over the neighbour?s ownership but is exclusive for this home to use. The courtyard is block paved, has wonderful views and is a real sun trap. The Kitchen is accessed here. The fittings in the kitchen have not been updated as the vendors were never quite sure if to extend or knock into the next room and create a huge Kitchen/Diner. The next room I referred to is the sitting room currently, but has served as the dining room, and vice versa with the current dining room. A pleasant hall leads off this (with the traditional two doors) and stairs lead up from here to two of the bedrooms and the shower room. The larges room is at the front and features full width built in wardrobes. Bedroom three is opposite. Stairs lead up again to bedroom two. This is a large room with built in storage and loft space as well as two Velux windows which flood it with light and open up the view.
Well Street is very central to town, the commons, schools and other amenities. Parking is possible in the street, but limited, so having the parking at the back is a real bonus. In summary, there is enough here to satisfy generations of owners as well as great opportunity to make more of it. It is pretty, it offers convenience and south facing gardens with fab views. Most of what we are often asked for, so do not delay. The vendors are motivated, and viewings are available immediately.
From our offices on Well Street, turn left out the door and continue to New Road. Cross over at this point and continue down Well Street where number 61 can be found after a short distance on your right hand side. To access the parking, turn right and New Road and immediately left in to Dick Hills Lane, where the large double garage will be located.
