Picturesque 17th Century Farmhouse, classically presented with glorious gardens and rolling pastures, which extend in all to around 60 acres.

Description
The approach is quite idyllic, via winding country lanes arriving at the property. East Wyke Farm is a picturesque Victorian farmhouse which has been carefully restored and extended over the years.

The property name originates from the Anglo Saxon word “Wyke” means “dairy farm” and Wyke or Wick is found in place names throughout the British Isles and prior owners of this property have raised a heard of pedigree Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle, The Normandy Herd.

This irresistible home offers classically presented accommodation with an elegant country feel, surrounded by glorious gardens and rolling pastures which extend in all to around 60 acres.

This substantial and impressive property retains all the characteristics typical of the Victorian era, including fireplaces, sash windows, detailed room cornicing and desirable room proportions which create a tremendous impression of space and light drawing the eye to some wonderful garden views.

An endearing open porch invites you into a welcoming reception hall with an elegant fireplace and wood burner. From here the splendid ground floor accommodation flows out, including a handsome double aspect drawing room and a comfortable sitting room, both with log burners. There is also a family room opening up into a conservatory which enjoys fabulous double aspect views over the gardens.

The family kitchen features exposed beams and elegant fitted bespoke cabinetry. With space for everyday dining and a breakfast bar kitchen island this is brilliant space and ultimately the hub of the home. Adjoining the kitchen is a walk in pantry, with a door down to the cellar.

On the first floor the wonderful principal bedroom is double aspect and features a decorative fireplace, walk in dressing room and en suite bathroom.

There is also a guest suite with dressing room and en suite shower room, overlooking the garden. There are three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom on this level.

In addition to the traditional bedroom accommodation, there is an integral independent one bedroom annexe. This is made up of a reception space, kitchen and shower room on the ground floor and a double bedroom upstairs.

Outside there are two driveways. The lower drive leads into the gardens and the main drive provides parking and leading to a period stone barn which has been converted to a triple carport and workshop.

The gardens have been lovingly laid out to provide considerable perennial interest with well stocked borders, attractive wisteria, rose arbours, sun terraces and a kitchen garden.

Within the garden there is a traditional brick building providing further parking and there is also a detached garden/studio, gym or office.

In addition to the garden are pastures and woodland lying to the south and east. There are a number of entry points to this land from local byways and lanes.
