Well house is a beautifully appointed home set in grounds of approximately 1.4 acres. Internally the house oozes character and charm with many original features retained. We understand that Well House dates back to the mid 19th century where it started life as 2 woodsman's cottages later being joined together to create one fabulous home.
As soon as you arrive at Well House you feel welcomed, as the driveway sweeps through the garden and leads up to this charming home.
On entering the house there is a large reception porch with extensive storage cupboards ideal for coats and boots. To one side is a door to the cloakroom which is extremely handy for the garden in summer months.
The inner reception hall with an open fireplace is currently designed as a library where there are ample book cases for your favourite novels and space to sit quietly and read whilst overlooking the garden.
The sitting room is particularly stylish with French doors giving access to a large sun terrace and offer wonderful views across the garden, An open fire is beautifully set in the brick fire place ensuring the room has a cosy feel in the winter months whilst burning logs from your own woodland.
A second sitting room offers versatile additional accommodation, this dual aspect room is currently being used as an office, however would also be suitable as a second sitting room or snug. The kitchen / breakfast room is the real heart of this house where many enjoyable evenings have been spent. The kitchen is farmhouse style and benefits from a 4 oven Aga and stand alone cooker and hob. The kitchen units are Ash, made and designed by Country Kitchens in Shaftesbury. For more formal entertaining the dining room is adjoining and has access directly to the rear garden. Beyond the dining room is an additional room ideal as an office or store room. The ground floor also boasts an utility room.
The first floor is a wonderful maze of rooms with the master bedroom suite being particularly impressive with wonderful views, a dressing room and full en-suite facilities. The guest bedroom also has en-suite facilities with the two further bedrooms being serviced by the family bathroom.
Throughout this charming house there is plenty of space for families to enjoy, and there is potential to further extend should more space be required. The current owners had plans drawn up to further develop the ground floor and they would be happy to pass these on to any purchaser.
Well House is approached via a pair of electric gates. The driveway sweeps up to the house and gives access to the garage and there is an area of level shingle suitable for parking additional cars or a campervan.
The formal gardens lie to the front of the house and have been carefully designed to blend with their surroundings, being mainly laid to lawn with inset specimen trees and shrubs. As the name of the house indicates there is a delightful well; we believe the well to be 68 metres deep with much of it lined with brick and flint. For safety there is a timber cover and built-in metal grid. In addition there are two small ornamental ponds. A glorious sun terrace runs along the front of the house providing an ideal space to enjoy summer alfresco dining and the all important evening gin and tonic.
Behind the house the garden runs smoothly into the woodland, which has been well managed and offers a great place for children and adults alike to enjoy. The trees are mainly Spruce and Larch but include Walnut, wild Cherry, Beech and Hornbeam.
A substantial garage and workshop is located close to the house and benefits from power and lighting.
