    About this property

    • Wickets is an attractive brick and flint cottage, sympathetically extended by the current owners to create an impressive edge of village home, set in about an acre of delightful gardens.

      The house is wonderfully presented throughout, with a great functionality. A main entrance hall leads to the principal rooms, including a lovely sitting room with woodburner, a dining room, and through to the impressive kitchen. With bespoke handmade cabinetry, features include a larder cupboard and coffee cupboard with wine cooler below, the space is brilliantly laid out for ease of use, with double doors through to a light and spacious garden room providing views over the landscaped gardens, ponds and beyond to the meadow. The ground floor is complete with an excellent utility room with fitted cabinets and a dog shower, ideal for rural living and providing access through to the garage.

      A staircase from the main hall, under which is bespoke cabinetry, leads up to the first floor which hosts all bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. At the rear of the house is the substantial principal bedroom suite, with dressing area and shower room fitted to a high standard. The bedroom has fine views out over the gardens and countryside beyond, with glazed double doors onto a Juliet balcony making the most of the aspect.

      Garden and lands
      The house is approached through wooden panelled gates onto a gravelled driveway, with parking for many cars and access to the garage.

      The delightful gardens are a feature of Wickets, and have been landscaped to make many points of interest. Pathways of gravel and pacing meander through well stocked flower beds, alongside the ponds, through the kitchen garden, up to the green house, over the ornamental steel edged sundial area and reaching the point where the land opens out to a meadow and orchard. There are decked terraces adjoining the rear of the house, and set on the edge of the pond, providing outside dining and entertaining areas. An oak frame outbuilding, under a pantile roof, is almost bothy like in appearance, with veranda and currently used as a workshop but could be utilised in many other ways such as a home office or games rooms.

      The gardens are fully fenced to allow dogs or children to roam freely.

    I think this is the perfect edge of village house, manageable in size, plenty of space around you, and with scope to enlarge, convert outbuildings, add to the gardens landscape or personalize.
