Refined living awaits at this stupendous period property nestled on the edge of the Cotswolds, says James Higgins
Set within more than three acres of land, this enticing period property is positioned in Wick. Sat on the edge of the southern extent of the Cotswolds, Wick is a 30-minute drive from Bristol city centre and about 20 minutes from Bath. This substantial property comprises a beautiful garden, impressive interiors, grand proportions, an annexe and a large outbuilding.
Obscured from the road by large trees, the property, its annexe and outbuilding are arranged around a sweeping driveway. Behind this, the gardens stretch towards a line of mature trees that ring the perimeter of the grounds and provide privacy.
The impressive gardens feature a large lawn, a hidden lake and waterfall.
The property is arranged across two levels and boasts classic period details, high ceilings, and tasteful decoration.
The ground floor has a beautiful kitchen/diner at its heart – fully fitted, modern and with integral appliances, it is a functional and attractive room large enough for a dining table and chairs.
At the rear of the ground floor is a spacious reception nearly 30m². A gorgeous bay window with French doors looks out over the garden, while aspects on both sides of the room bask it in sunlight throughout the day. The French doors lead from the reception onto a large patio which features a pergola shrouded in climbing plants and shrubs.
The hallway and its period tiled floor, glass paned doors and blush red walls offer the property a timeless style. It is flanked by two smaller receptions which could offer space for a dining room, office, or play room. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor, there are five bedrooms of varying sizes and two bathrooms. The master bedroom sits at the rear and mirrors the generous proportions of the reception below it – it features an impressive aspect almost the entire width of the room and provides access onto a balcony.
The annexe is a converted stone-built outhouse and features three large rooms arranged end-to-end. With high ceilings, exposed rafters, and partially knocked-through living spaces, the annexe is an airy oasis perfectly suited as a guest house or separate, private family accommodation. It has its own secluded, covered courtyard that makes an ideal al fresco dining space.
