Lovers Walk is a small cul de sac which is one of the most sought after areas of Wells. It includes a small number of good quality residential properties and a small primary school and is within easy walking distance of the centre of Wells. No. 12 has an excellent location at the end of the lane and the driveway is approached through electrically operated high double solid timber gates. The gates open onto the paved drive which leads to the open side garage and parking area.
The house and surrounds are simply unique and must be viewed to be fully appreciated. The location is perfect for many and the high stone walls complement perfectly the contemporary qualities and details of the building.
No expense nor attention was spared in the construction which incorporates exceptional details particularly with regard to the sound and light systems, the central heating and the kitchen and bathrooms. Most of the systems can be remotely controlled from a smart phone (or iPad etc.) including a security system.
The heating system is worthy of special mention. There is solar water heating, photovoltaic panels, an air source heat pump and under floor heating. This combines with the double glazing and the high standard of insulation to give an Energy Efficiency rating of Band B 83.
The front porch shields the front door which opens into generous reception hall with a plant store and a cloakroom. A door opens to the large sitting room which has a wide range of bifolding doors opening to the south facing terrace. Another feature of the room is the internal wall with a lithium fuelled fireplace (both totally removable if preferred).
The reception hall opens directly into the dining area and beyond to the kitchen & breakfast room which is certainly a "wow" room again having wide bifolding doors to the terrace. The kitchen is very well equipped with units and appliances.
Beyond the kitchen is a utility room and a small study.
On the first floor the master suite is excellent and there are 3 other bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one being en suite.
Outside the walled garden is charming and enhances the house perfectly.
In short this is a property which must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
