Beautiful 5 bedroom end terrace country house of tremendous character, with 150 ft long rear garden and garage workshop. Occupying a commanding location in this historic and popular village, the spacious accommodation amounts to over 2750 sq feet.
With a perfect balance of traditional features and modern fixtures, the current owners have carefully refurbished various major elements which have been completed to a high specification. For example, complete renovation of the roof, hot water and central heating systems, kitchen and electrics were undertaken under the auspices of English Heritage. The result is a truly unique Grade II listed property. Far reaching country views up to the Cotswold escarpment to Wotton and beyond can be enjoyed from all rear windows, and also from the sun-trap rear garden which extends to 45 metres (150 ft). Known as Hope House, the accommodation comprises 5 double bedrooms over 3 floors, 2 bathrooms, lounge, sitting room, kitchen dining room, utility, downstairs cloakroom and gym/store with future potential, perhaps for a ground floor annexe bedsit. Outside, the garage workshop opens from Back Lane to the rear and provides useful storage. Convenient for Waitrose Chipping Sodbury (7 minute drive), Alexander Hosea school, pub, restaurants and social club. There is a free bus to klb secondary school, and miles of rural walks on the doorstep.
Wickwar is particularly well placed between Chipping Sodbury and Falfield for access to the M5 (J14) and M4 (J18) Tormarton. There are village shops, including a coffee shop/deli, hairdressers, car garage, an award winning brewery and the renowned Alexander Hosea primary school. The well respected Katharine Lady Berkeley secondary is in the next village of Kingswood, Wotton-Under-Edge. Wickwar has a great community spirit with local football and cricket teams and many other clubs.
