Lower Godney, Wells

Property Description: Guide Price £530,000 - £550,000. This is a fabulous opportunity to create a fantastic home in the middle of a quiet rural village just a few minutes from the bustling towns of Wells and Glastonbury.

The property is situated in the centre of approximately 0.5 acres surrounded by stone walls with a large tree lined and gravelled parking area as well as lawns and well-established trees. All of the boundary walls and the front of the bungalow have had some of the original Blue Mendip Lias stone form the old farmhouse incorporated into them.

The main house offers three good sized double bedrooms, a bathroom and large reception room with windows to the front and rear. The kitchen along with its oil fired Aga opens onto a good sized terrace with the original flagstones from the former farmhouse. The house would benefit from some updating but offers an excellent amount of space both inside and out. There is potential to extend into the roof space to make more of the incredible open views over the Somerset countryside beyond.

The detached period stone barn is the original structure that belonged to the old farmhouse and is located at the front of the garden. It has three areas on the ground floor and a full-length attic room above. There is, subject to the necessary consents, the opportunity to create some further accommodation for a dependent relative or a fabulous work from home space.

There is an additional parcel of land across the other side of the River Sheppey which meanders through the garden and is accessed via a wooden bridge. This could be a magical space to take in the quiet of this rural area or could be planted to be a productive vegetable garden with some further fruit trees. The terrace is built from some of the wonderful stone flooring that was inside the original farmhouse and there are steps down to the river for access should you wish to kayak or paddle board direct from home.


Chainbridge is situated in the heart of village of Lower Godney (God's Isle), which is much sough-after due to its friendly community and creative spirit. The house is well placed for countryside walks and bike rides and just down the road is the fabulously quirky and well-loved by locals Sheppey Inn.

Godney is central to four National Nature Reserves and with wildlife in abundance the sightings of buzzard, roe deer, lapwing, otter, heron, barn owl, and kingfishers are common.

The picturesque city of Wells has a bustling High Street and provides a range of local amenities with four supermarkets (Waitrose being the closest), a cinema, leisure centre, numerous coffee shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from, several dentists and doctors, some fabulous independent shops and even some art shops for those seeking something a little different. There are also famous historical landmarks such as the Cathedral and Bishop's Palace, as well as the popular twice weekly produce market and Cedars Hall offering a range of cultural events throughout the year. There are excellent state schools in the vicinity, including Stoberry Park School, St Cuthbert's CofE Junior School, St Joseph and St Teresa Catholic Primary School and The Blue School as well as independent schools including Wells Cathedral School on your doorstep. All Hallows Prep School, Downside and Millfield are just a short drive away. Wells also benefits from being close enough to Glastonbury Festival to qualify its residents for the sale of local tickets.
