A unique farmhouse and ancillary accommodation set within 2.8 acres
Wickets Green Farm is a unique home with a history dating back to the Doomsday Book. The main farmhouse in its original part lies within a 2.8 acre plot with a plethora of possibilities and the ability to flex and grow as time permits. Rebuilt in 1656 by the Eyre family of Landford Manor, the Grade II listed farmhouse has some incredible features, the stained glass windows, 17th Century panelling and 18th Century newel stairs to name a few.
The house has had many uses throughout history, a farmstead as well as home to Sir Wadham Wyndham, instrumental in the prosecution of Charles I, later knighted by Charles II. Coming back into the ownership of Elizabeth Eyre a rare female landowner in the 19th Century, she married Thomas, 2nd Earl Nelson the nephew of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Wickets Green Farm was reprimanded by the British Army in 1942 to finalise battle plans and was used by the Army, veiled in secrecy until the end of the war. Thoughout the 20th Century, back in private hands, the farmhouse has been extended and refurbished to the unique and historic home we see today.
The Farmhouse The accommodation is extensive with the main farmhouse comprising three spacious reception rooms, a study and ground floor bedrooms which could be utilised as an annexe for an au-pair. A spacious principle suite with a bathroom and two further bedrooms can be found on the upper floors, accessed via an impressive oak staircase. The main sitting room is of particular note with a glorious inglenook fireplace with its original bread oven still in situ.
Ancillary Accommodation The Cart House and the Cow Shed are superbly placed to offer additional accommodation to the main house or as they are currently utilised as holiday cottages. The Cart houses kitchen has an impressive vaulted ceiling, the character of the farmhouse echoes throughout both of these buildings with exposed beams and flagstone tiled floors. The Cart house has three bedrooms, a kitchen and sitting room with two bathrooms, while the Cow Shed is slightly smaller with two bedrooms and a shower room.
This property has 2.8 acres of land.
