A beautiful country house with delightful views offering the unique opportunity of a building plot and 2 partly completed barns with extant permission for conversion

The property Wilcott House is a beautiful 19th century property with later Victorian extensions occupying a prominent position within the village of Wilcott. The house, which is in need of some modernisation, has an extensive range of attractive and well laid out accommodation, embracing the far reaching southerly views to the rear. Its abundance of original features including deep bay windows, exposed timbers, flagstone floors and period fireplaces, gives a fantastic ambiance throughout.

Wilcott House has a range of well-proportioned reception space to include a formal drawing room, elegant sitting room, dining room and large family kitchen/breakfast room. A sizeable boot room, cloakroom and cellar give excellent utility space.

6 bedrooms and a home office span the first and second floors, many of which enjoy superb views over the surrounding countryside.

The bedrooms are complimented by a large family bathroom, en-suite to the master bedroom and a W.C.

This property has 2 acres of land.
