THE PROPERTY

This delightful Grade II Listed stone house enjoys a prominent position in the heart of the picturesque village of Wicken with attractive south facing grounds opening onto rolling countryside beyond. Under the custodianship of the current owners, the house has been sympathetically upgraded and modernised yet retains all the period charm with original stone inglenook fireplaces, central beams and mullion windows. In addition, they have added a garden room extension to the rear to create stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room which enjoys wonderful views over the rear grounds and open countryside beyond. The house provides very comfortable and well presented family accommodation over three floors and is complemented by the large south facing rear garden and terracing providing excellent outdoor dining and entertaining space. The village itself is surrounded by attractive rural countryside providing a playground for riding, walking, cycling and running enthusiasts. As with all individual properties, a viewing will be essential to fully appreciate all on offer. Panelled front and rear doors open into the reception/dining room lying in the heart of the house with stone inglenook fireplace. In the corner of the room is a door revealing steps leading down into the original bakehouse which is now used as an impressive drinks cupboard with built-in wine rack and shelving in the original fireplace recess. The sitting room lies at the eastern end of the house enjoying a triple aspect with wood burner standing on a tiled hearth within a stone fireplace. Leading off the dining room is a cloakroom with under stairs cupboard opposite and access through to the family room which also enjoys direct access into the stunning kitchen/breakfast room which is ideally suited for modern 21st century living. The bespoke shaker kitchen was installed in 2016 with oak work surfaces and inset double bowl enamel sink. The black, electric, three oven, AIMS controlled AGA has pride of place and integral appliances include Bosch dishwasher, washing machine and full height fridge/freezer. A step drops down to the garden room which replaced an original conservatory and benefits from a full height picture window overlooking the rear garden and open fields beyond. Bi-fold doors run along the eastern elevation opening onto the extensive outdoor terracing running along the rear of the property. FIRST FLOOR At the top of the landing are two double bedrooms, one with built-in fitted wardrobes, along with family bathroom with rain head wall mounted shower above the bath. The landing continues along the front of the property offering access to the well proportioned triple aspect master bedroom and in the corner is a compact fully tiled en-suite wet room. SECOND FLOOR A large landing doubles up as an office and sitting area and divides two further double bedrooms served by a shower room. OUTSIDE Lying to the west of the house is the gravelled drive offering generous off road parking for 5/6 vehicles along with access to the detached double garage constructed of stone under a red tiled roof with car charging point to the front. The garage benefits from two electric up and over doors and lying to the rear, and screened by hazel fence panels, lies the 2,500 litre oil tank. The attractive garden and grounds enjoy a southerly aspect with lawn falling gently down to a stream defining the southern boundary and overlooking open farmland and woodland. Running along the rear of the house is an extensive terrace, paved in York stone, ideally suited for outdoor entertaining and in the corner of the terrace, lies the boiler room housing the Worcester boiler. An above ground hot tub currently sits on part of the terrace and could be made available subject to separate negotiation. The first part of the lawn is edged on two sides by mature herbaceous borders and gives way to a more informal area of lawn and orchard. There is plenty of room for establishing a kitchen garden or the potential installation of swimming pool if desired. In the far corner lies a timber garden shed.
