Substantial and imposing, an attached Grade II listed Cotswold Stone property, with generous accommodation arranged over four floors, which has been updated over the last few years
Wickham Grange is a Grade II listed, attached Georgian house, dating from the early 18th century. The splendid façade, with its large bow windows and 19th Century wrought iron veranda, is matched by the quality of the interior which has been meticulously improved by the current vendors, with its fine architectural features, including the fireplaces, wainscot panelling and some exceptional cornice work. The house is in an elevated position with an easily maintained and landscaped garden to the front. It is built of dressed and squared Cotswold limestone, using traditional methods, with a pitched, tiled roof. With its southerly aspect the rooms are all light, spacious and airy. The porch comprises a Tuscan door surround with Art Nouveau stained glass light above the door. On entering there is a spacious hallway and fine oak staircase, stylish and recently fitted ground floor bathroom, newly tiled floor with the two receptions rooms on either side of the hall. In the sitting room French doors to the veranda and a Clear View multi-stove and marble fireplace, and on the other side of the hall is the family room with its large bow windows and fireplace with a handmade shaker kitchen and free standing island. A wide arch opens from the latter to the well-equipped kitchen. The four bedrooms on the first and second floors are well proportioned and accessed via spacious and light landings with high ceilings. The master bedroom offers a beautiful en-suite bathroom and there is a family bathroom. Both have been subject to major refurbishment and been finished with high quality fittings and suites. The house also has a utility room and generous cellar with excellent storage and potential to develop further subject to the usual consents. The current vendors have also overhauled and refurbished the sash windows, veranda and the plumbing and electric for all the bathrooms and en-suites.
The landscaped and level gardens are found to the front of the property and enjoy the beautiful southerly aspect. A charming covered seating area is found at the front of the house, with a path leading through level lawns to the front door. A further seating area can be found on the roof terrace above the garage. The garden is well planted, with established borders stocked with a variety of plants and mature shrubs. The property benefits from off street parking for two cars and a garage.
