3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale
Sowerbys are delighted to bring to the market Milton House, a striking double fronted Victorian home dating from 1889 and located right in the heart of the hugely popular seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea. This substantial residence, although in need of modernisation, retains many original features and offers the perfect opportunity to create a wonderful home in a highly sought-after location, only a moments' walk from the wealth of amenities Wells has to offer.
Entering Milton house through its glazed and panelled front door straight into the reception hall, you will find an impressive original polished wood open balustrade staircase leading to the first floor, dado railed walls, door to the rear garden and period panelled doors to the further accommodation. The dual aspect living room is bathed in natural light from the multi-paned sash windows to the front and rear and benefits from high ceilings with detailed cornices, picture rails and a central fireplace, whilst just across the hall from this is a separate single aspect sitting room providing similar features.
Further down the hall, the dining room too benefits from an abundance of natural light with two sash windows looking out over the garden patio, there is also a central fireplace and original panelled and latched doors, one of which discreetly hides the maid's staircase rising to the first floor. From the dining room you can also access the ground floor shower room and the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of wall and base units and has a part glazed door leading out to the patio.
On the first floor we have a light and spacious landing, with a feature stained-glass window, sash window, dado railed walls, maid's staircase leading back down to the dining room, and panelled doors to the bedrooms and bathroom. The principal double bedroom provides a light dual aspect with multi-paned sash windows to the front and rear, high ceilings, picture railed walls and an open fireplace. Bedroom two, also a generous double, offers a sash window to the front aspect, picture railed walls, open fireplace, and a walk-in wardrobe with a feature arched opaque window to the front aspect. The first-floor accommodation is finished with a third double bedroom also with open fireplace and sash window providing elevated views of the rear garden, and a decent sized family bathroom.
Outside Milton House has a hard standing to its north side providing parking for up to three vehicles, a genuine rarity in this part of town. To the side and rear is a large patio area with plant and shrub borders, with direct access into the hall and kitchen, providing an ideal spot for evening entertaining and dining during the summer months. Beyond this is a larger than expected lawn laid walled garden, planted with a plethora of shrubs, flowering plants and specimen trees.
In order to truly appreciate the incredible potential this property has to offer and its convenient sought-after central location, we would invite you to arrange a viewing at your earliest convenience.
WELLS-NEXT-THE-SEA Wonderful Wells! With its sandy beach and pretty candy-striped huts, it's easy to understand why this sleepy coastal town is a Mecca for day trippers and holiday makers, but there are plenty of reasons to make Wells-next-the-Sea your permanent home and explore this sweet spot forever.
There are plenty of ways to explore the waterways that surround the area. For a nautical adventure, jump aboard one of the Coastal Exploration Company's traditional wooden sailing boats and adventure hidden creeks, marshes and open sea. Or test your balance with a stand-up paddleboarding session with Barefoot SUP.
The lanes behind the harbour and surrounding the town have plenty of tucked-away fishermen's cottages which are highly sought after, as are apartments with sea views in the converted buildings overlooking the harbour. Head out of the town centre to discover plenty of spacious, grand houses along with fantastic new-build developments which are ideal for young families and downsizers alike. With a bustling community, the town is well-serviced with a primary and secondary schools, plus a GP surgery and library.
For a hit of culture, head to Wells Maltings, an elegant heritage and community centre just off the quay which houses a theatre, cinema, gallery and caf魢ar. While away an afternoon browsing the town's galleries - The Staithe Gallery, Gallery Plus and Quay Art - for some artwork to adorn your home. Discover gorgeous homewares at Nomad and the Bowerbird, relaxed country clothing at Christopher William Country and eco-friendly clothing and toys for little one at Ele and Me. Traditional butcher Arthur Howell is the place locals go to for high quality meat, and you might be lucky enough to bag some freshly caught fish straight off the boat, on the harbour wall. The Real Ale Shop at nearby Branthill Farm is a must for craft beer drinkers.
Alternatively treat yourself to a delicious meal at The Globe Inn or Crown Hotel overlooking the green, or push the proverbial boat out and head to Michelin-starred Morston Hall. For a simpler, yet equally quintessential Wells experience, share a box of fish and chips from French's on the harbour wall and watch the sun slowly set over the water. Imagining yourself here already? Let's find your dream coastal home…
