Within the grounds of Wyke Hall, a striking 14th Century Grade II Listed manor house and reputedly built as a hunting lodge for King Edward III, The Cottage House is an attractive attached house with colour washed rendered elevations under a pitched clay tile roof. The house has a delightful feel with good ceiling heights, attractive sash windows to both front and rear facades together with other attributes including open fireplaces in the sitting room (with inset wood burner) and dining room, and oak flooring in the front hall, sitting room and dining room. Both the sitting room and dining room are well proportioned rooms, while upstairs there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and a family shower room. In addition, The Cottage House has a private garage and use of the communal grounds which amount to approximately six acres of parkland interspersed with a magnificent selection of mature trees, along with use of the shared tennis court and swimming pool. Services: Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Council Tax: Band E EPC: D The property is approached from the road over a sweeping drive leading to the front of the Wyke Hall. The Cottage House is on the right of the main building. Continuing past Wyke Hall there is a car parking area and four garages, one of which is for the exclusive use of The Cottage House. The property is approached through an attractive brick and partly walled courtyard to the front door. At the rear there is small garden bordered by laurel hedging with a stone terrace and lawned area alongside. There are two timber garden sheds by the swimming pool which belong to the property.
