A charming Victorian attached residence providing well proportioned and versatile accommodation in a peaceful location within the village of Brede. The Well House is a charming Victorian attached residence presenting attractive elevations of brick and fish-scale tiles under a slate roof with ornamental barge boards. The property has been sympathetically extended to create a versatile and characterful home. There are tall sash windows along with a range of statement period fireplaces, deep skirting boards and decorative cornicing and plasterwork. The versatile accommodation is of good proportions with lofty ceiling heights and is arranged predominantly on the ground floor. The living space is currently arranged to provide four generous reception rooms, each one displaying an individual antique fireplace. The dining room benefits from a gas fired ''wood burner' and French doors to the terrace. It is conveniently set next to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of cabinets and integral appliances. The ground floor bedroom benefits from an adjacent shower room and the first-floor bedroom has not only a bathroom alongside but a vaulted dressing room. It should be noted that the reception rooms and bedrooms are easily interchangeable depending on individual family needs. Outside, the mature gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, encompassed by established hedges and include a range of fruit trees including apples, pears and Walnut. There is clipped box hedging at the front of the house and a York stone paved terrace which is where the well (from which the property derives its name) is situated. This creates a delightful setting to enjoy views over the gardens and landscape beyond. The pretty garage has a thatched roof and double doors leading to its interior which has a useful storage area above. Power and light are connected. A similarly attractive thatched summerhouse has been designed in keeping with the garage and could be converted into a home office, subject to any necessary planning. The property is approached via a picket fence to a private driveway adjacent to the garage and there is secondary pedestrian access accessed from behind the garage.
