Sold STC Upper Wick, Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 Offers in excess of £925,000
There are an extensive array of outbuildings which are of both stone and more modern construction and are all set around the large courtyard making the usability and access first class. These buildings, parking and paddock are accessed separately from the main house, informally splitting the house and recreational areas. Currently the outbuildings are largely used for storage and equestrian needs with five loose boxes housed in one of the large barns and two large open sided hay barns. There is also ample opportunity to enhance these buildings and incorporate a more formal garage, studio or additional stables if the need arises and subject to obtaining the appropriate planning permissions.
Wick House Farm is situated in a private position nestled between the Severn Vale and the Cotswold Hills escarpment. Nearby villages including North Nibley offer a post office, community-run shop, church, garage, public house and a primary school along with its famous monument to William Tyndale, translator of the New Testament in the early 1500s. The nearby town of Wotton under Edge caters for most day to day needs and boasts a farm shop, cinema and secondary school. The market towns of Dursley and Tetbury are within easy reach and have a more diverse selection of shops, leisure facilities and restaurants. Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bristol are reached via the M5. Nearby road access includes the M5 & A38 connecting the Midlands and the West Country, as well as the M4 at Bristol, ensuring access to London and the South West. Intercity rail links into London are available from Bristol Parkway (to London Paddington in 90 minutes) or Kemble Station (to London Paddington in 85 minutes).
Recreational pursuits include golf at Stinchcombe and Cotswold Edge, hunting with the Berkeley Hunt and first division rugby at Kingsholm, Gloucester. Berkeley Castle is also nearby as is the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge.
The 9.67 acres are ring fenced and are informally split into three areas. The formal grounds which surround the house are mainly laid to lawn but have a beautiful selection of mature trees including magnolia, cherry, beech and a number of well stocked borders, which provide evergreen foliage to provide year round interest and privacy. Abutting the formal gardens is the orchard. This has a number of producing fruit trees and has independent access from the lane making it excellent overflow pasture land and easy to maintain. The third section is the largest and is currently one large grazing paddock which can be accessed from the 2 angle. The house and grounds offer complete privacy from all angles and views are only of the surrounding farmland and mature evergreen trees.
