About this property

  • Heytesbury Park comprises an exclusive community of properties including Heytesbury House which is a stunning Grade II* listed Georgian country house which was remodelled and landscaped in 1784 by renowned architect John Wood the Younger. 2 The Courtyard is attached to and lies to the west of this beautiful building, which in 1933 was bought by the famous First World War poet Siegfried Sassoon, until his death in 1967. It was sold by his family in 1996 for redevelopment into the current arrangement of apartments and houses.

    Built of stone and brick under a tiled roof, 2 The Courtyard is south facing, over-looking its own private garden and communal parkland grounds. The current owner invested significant funds in bespoke cabinetry throughout key rooms such as the study and dining room. There is an elegant entrance hall from which all reception rooms are accessed, including a well-proportioned drawing room with log burner and French doors to the private garden, a dining room with views over the garden and a study overlooking the courtyard to the front. The kitchen has a fully fitted “shaker-style” kitchen with gas range and space for a breakfast table, as well as French doors out to the south-facing terrace and private garden.

    Upstairs, the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and double doors through to an adjoining dressing room / further bedroom. There are two further double bedrooms, along with a family bathroom.

    A terrace provides an area for outdoor entertaining and leads on to the private south facing garden which is mainly laid to lawn, enclosed with Beech hedge and interspersed with floral borders. Ownership of 2 The Courtyard also permits access to the surrounding communal parkland and grounds. There is resident's parking in a graveled enclosure to the west of the house and there is a private detached single garage located in a communal yard to the north of the house.

Anyone looking for a beautiful period home within a strong community has to come and view this house. I particularly love the private garden with direct access to the wider communal grounds of Heytesbury House.
