About this property

  • Wrickton House is a beautifully converted barn, retaining character features including exposed beams and vaulted ceilings, mixed with modern interior. Both blend beautifully together, offering a wonderful living space within a fabulous setting. The house is fitted with double glazing throughout and has been thoughtfully designed to showcase exposed brickwork, cast iron radiators and solid oak doors and window frames along with large glazed windows and doors, allowing in plenty of natural light.

    The front door opens into the reception hall which has a beautiful Welsh slate tiled floor and an arched window overlooking the pretty courtyard gardens. There is ample storage for boots and coats and a separate wet room, with fully tiled walls and floor.

    The kitchen breakfast is a unique selling point of Wrickton House and is a beautiful room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and two sets of French doors which open onto the gardens, offering a wonderful entertaining space. The kitchen has a number of wall and base units, bespoke solid oak worktops and Welsh slate floor tiles. There is an AGA four oven cooker with boiler and an integrated Bosch dishwasher. The utility is off the kitchen and includes a Belfast sink, an integrated Whirlpool tumble dryer and plumbing for a washing machine. There is also a wine rack and a useful pantry cupboard.

    The living room is a fabulous space and a wonderful room for family and entertaining. This impressive room has a vaulted ceiling, a contemporary style open fire place and solid wood flooring. A set of French doors lead out onto the gardens.

    The ground floor also has a family bathroom which serves bedrooms three and four, it has a wonderful oversized bath and French doors leading into the courtyard garden. Bedroom three is a double with fitted wardrobes and French doors leading onto the courtyard garden, whilst bedroom four is currently used as a gym also has doors onto the courtyard garden and fitted wardrobes.

    The study/games room is a versatile room with potential, which could also serve as part of a self-contained annexe incorporating bedrooms three and four and the family bathroom. There is a wood burning stove with a pretty tiled hearth and French doors leading to the gardens and courtyard garden. Stairs rise to the first floor and guest bedrooms four and five which share a bathroom and has a Canova Royal wash hand basin and a bath with shower over.

    From the inner hall a separate solid oak staircase and landing area, rises to the impressive principal suite, with a sleeping area and lounge area.

    Outside

    Approached via a gated drive, there is ample parking for several vehicles and direct access to a garage with a mezzanine floor and has the potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning permissions. There are two traditional brick barns, one single height which is currently being used as storage and the other is double height and benefits from full planning permission. These barns have their own separate driveway and are a real asset to the original property with plenty of potential.

    The wonderful landscaped gardens wrap around the whole house and were professionally designed to reflect a cottage garden, with a secluded seating/BBQ area surrounded by high hedging, a well maintained kitchen garden and an orchard beyond. There are formal gardens on both sides of Wrickton House with the courtyard garden within the centre of the plot offering a relaxing and peaceful area with space for al-fresco dining.

    There is an additional smaller outbuilding in the garden, currently used for storage but could have the potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning permission.
