With a breathtaking view of the west front of Wells Cathedral from both the sitting room and the bedroom, this first floor apartment is set within a Grade II Listed building in the heart of Wells. Beautifully presented throughout, the property has been successfully run as a holiday let in recent years and could be purchased fully furnished. No onward chain.
A communal entrance hall leads to a staircase rising to the first floor and a solid wood door opens into the apartment. An entrance lobby with useful store cupboard and an engineered oak floor gives access into the sitting room. The first thing you will notice is the wonderful view of Wells Cathedral with the Cathedral Green in front. Framed by double sash windows this is a view we think you would never get tired of. The sitting room also has an engineered oak floor with a cupboard housing the gas fired combination boiler (installed in recent years) and the room also has television and telephone points. Opening off the sitting room is a kitchen with custom-made base units with solid wood work surfaces and a Belfast sink. There are spaces for both fridge and freezer and an electric cooker point.
Back into the entrance lobby and from here you can also enter the double bedroom with another beautiful view of the Cathedral and Cathedral Green. Across from the bedroom is the bathroom with tile-effect flooring, panelled bath with overhead shower above, W.C. and pedestal wash hand basin. There is a useful linen cupboard and a ladder-back radiator for towels.
Although there is no outside space with the property, the Cathedral Green lies to the rear of the building and it is worth noting again how centrally located the property is within the city. The quoted rate on Airbnb is £75 per night resulting in an income of £15,000 per annum. Our client would be happy to provide details of the cleaner currently used between stays and could sell the property fully equipped and furnished.
Wells is the smallest city in England and offers a vibrant high street with a variety of independent shops and restaurants 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). Bristol and Bath lie c. 22 miles to the north and north-east respectively with mainline train stations to London at Castle Cary (c.11 miles) as well as Bristol and Bath. Bristol International Airport is c.15 miles to the north-west. Of particular note is the variety of well-regarded schools in both the state and private sectors in Wells and the surrounding area.
On foot from our office proceed up the High Street towards the Market Place. Bear left into Sadler Street and the property can be found on the right hand side.
