This substantial and impressive family home enjoys a quiet
courtyard position in this convenient and highly regarded
village a short distance to the east of Wetherby and within
close proximity of excellent road links to major commercial
centres. The property benefits from delightful landscaped
gardens, stables and paddocks amounting to 2.019 acres
(0.817 Ha) or thereabouts, making this an excellent
opportunity for the family with equestrian interests.
"The West Wing" was originally constructed in the mid1990s on the footprint of a former barn and archway, part
of the original North Farm Estate at the centre of the
village. The property was designed in accordance with
strict planning requirements to replicate the previous farm
buildings whilst at the same time providing a spacious and
flexible layout of accommodation of a high specification.
This was achieved using traditional construction
techniques and materials including attractive hand
clamped bricks, timber double glazed sash windows, gas
fired heating and attractive clay pantile roofing with clay
tiled tabling. Our clients acquired the property in 1997 and
carried out their own programme of high quality
improvements including the creation of a dressing room in
what was formerly a fifth bedroom, the provision of fitted
furniture to the principal bedrooms and the construction of
a bespoke stable block.
An impressive central hallway with guest cloakroom and
galleried landing leads to an elegant drawing room, study
and garden room, a formal dining room, well-appointed
breakfast kitchen and separate utility room.
The master bedroom has a cleverly designed dressing
room, which also could serve as a nursery bedroom, and its
own en-suite shower room, and three further double
family bedrooms are served by a luxury house bathroom.
"The West Wing" forms part of an attractive courtyard
comprising homes of a similar high standard with visitor
parking adjacent to the main entrance and the ownership
of the distinctive archway and clock tower. There is gated
access to fully enclosed landscaped gardens and excellent
visitor car parking to the front of a detached double garage
with a useful studio/playroom/office above. Finally, a
gated green lane leads to a fully enclosed paddock and
bespoke stable block in all amounting to 1.7 acres or
thereabouts, thus satisfying the requirements of the
equestrian enthusiasts.
Bickerton is a popular choice amongst family purchasers as a
direct result of its ease of access to the nearby market town
of Wetherby with its excellent choice of shops and leisure
amenities. The commercial centres of Leeds, York and
further afield can be reached with ease via an excellent road
and motorway network. The village is situated within the
catchment for Tockwith Primary School, King James School
in Knaresborough and Tadcaster Grammar School.
