    About this property

    • The Gate House is believed to have been built in the 1920s, of brick and rendered elevations under a tiled roof. The property provides well balanced reception and bedroom space, is tastefully decorated throughout and approaches 4,000 sq ft.

      The ground floor accommodation has been thoughtfully laid out for family living and entertaining with three spacious reception rooms, a sun room, a study and a sociable, light-filled kitchen/diner fitted with Shaker style units in period colour tones and featuring an island with inset sink. The property has two entrances offering the ability to be re-designed for annexe accommodation.

      On the first floor the principal bedroom provides a walk-in wardrobe with bespoke fitted cupboards and a luxury en suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. There are three further bedrooms, one with walk-in wardrobe, and two shower rooms. A balcony spans the majority of the rear of the property to this level and has been positioned to maximise the views over the Blackwater Valley.

      The property occupies a largely rectangular-shaped plot and is approached over a shared driveway opening to a large sweeping drive. There is a modern triple garage with a partly converted room above offering the option for a variety of different uses, subject to the necessary consents. There is also a secondary outbuilding to the eastern boundary, providing an ideal work-from-home space. The south-facing garden includes an extensive terrace enclosed with attractive red-brick walls. There is an area of front garden laid to lawn, incorporating a feature pond and hedging, providing a natural barrier from its country lane setting. All in about 0.5 of an acre.

      Mains water and electricity. Oil-fired heating. Private drainage (compliant system).

    I love the setting of this wonderful family home. The external studio and triple garage with room above provide very useful additions. Wickham Bishops is a very popular village and is ideal for those commuting being so close to Witham train station.
