Property description

Abbey house We are delighted to offer you a rare opportunity to acquire an imposing town house and separate period cottage located on the ever popular Buttlands in Wells-next-the-Sea. Abbey House is a handsome Grade II listed property with a Georgian façade and is one of Wells-next-the-Sea's landmark homes, standing prominently yet set back from the road in an area that has changed very little over the centuries. The well-proportioned accommodation has a wealth of original features blended together with recent refinements for modern day living. There are wonderful opportunities for entertaining, with four reception rooms, the largest being the drawing room and dining room which overlook The Buttlands. The extensive and highly versatile accommodation briefly comprises; Entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, morning room, kitchen, garden room and ground floor bathroom. To the first floor are four double bedrooms, two with impressive views over the village green and one with en-suite shower room, study/single bedroom and a large family bathroom. To the front of the property is a pretty courtyard style garden enclosed by attractive low brick wall. To the rear is a private walled garden which is paved. The parking is accessed directly off The Buttlands via an archway with double gates that lead through to the driveway parking and the old stables that now provide garaging. Abbey House Cottage is an iconic property with its castle style roof line; it is currently a successful holiday let and offers a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. It further benefits from a pretty front garden and a south facing rear courtyard. The Buttlands is just a moments' walk from Wells-next-the-Sea High Street with its eclectic mix of independent shops, restaurants and The Quay which makes the town so popular with residents and visitors alike.
