About this property

  • Hampton Bye is a former farmhouse with attractive painted brick elevations beneath a slate roof. It is set well back from Bickerton road and approached via a straight tree lined drive leading to a parking and turning area at the side of the house.

    It has been a much loved family home for many years and the most recent owners secured planning consent on 4th March 2021 for a significant extension and alteration of the accommodation - Planning Application 21/00965/NMA.

    As it stands the house offers supremely versatile accommodation divided between the house and a two storey outbuilding, which are attached via a glazed link.

    A porch covers the front door which opens into the sitting room with a fireplace with a log burner and stairs to the first floor. Beyond is an inner hall offering access to the drawing room (currently used as a studio) and a small study, a back hall and a WC.

    The kitchen has an oil fired range cooker, a good range of fitted kitchen units and a central island. A larder provides further storage.

    The glazed link leads to a conservatory area which is open to a substantial games room within the barn structure. In addition there is a dining room, a WC and utility room and a conservatory provides an ideal link to the gardens and the pool area.

    On the first floor is a principal bedroom suite with a dressing room and en suite bathroom and a further four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

    The drive is flanked by open areas of mown grass bounded by mature trees and hedging, extending to the rear of the property. It makes for the most delightful setting and includes a pond and there are open country views to the rear and to the Bickerton Hills.

    The total area is approximately 4.09 acres.

I love the seamless flow of accommodation at Hampton Bye, and how well this connects with the outside space. The proposed alterations to the property will enhance this even further - a very exciting prospect for the next owners.
