Description

Pickwick End is a fine example of a detached Georgian country house. Grade II listed and built around the mid-18th century, the home has attractive ashlar stone elevations under a stone-tiled roof.

On arrival at the front of the house, the classic Georgian façade with its attractive symmetrical proportions creates a true sense of grandeur. This grandness continues inside, with a range of fine period features including sculpted fireplaces, corniced ceilings, sash windows with working shutters and exposed wooden floorboards.

The elegantly-proportioned accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, amounting to around 5,277 sq ft. On the ground floor is an impressive entrance hall, with corner staircase to one end and doors leading off to the principal reception rooms. The drawing room offers an impressive fireplace and dual aspect windows allow daylight to flood in; the sitting room to the other side of the hall benefits from a similar but mirrored arrangement. The library has a fine flagstone floor and walls lined with almost floor-to-ceiling book cases. The dining room, also with an attractive stone floor and a handsome open fireplace, leads into the well-equipped kitchen with its range of base, drawer and wall units and useful access to the rear garden. A cellar with built-in wine bins can be accessed by a staircase off the entrance hall.

To the first floor are the principal bedrooms including a master suite with en suite shower room, guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, a walk-in dressing room, cloakroom and family bathroom.

To the second floor are two further double bedrooms. A door on the landing leads into a self contained 1-bedroom apartment with kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and bathroom. This area could be used in conjunction with the main house, or could potentially serve as a self-contained unit for staff or family.

Pickwick End is an impressive family home conveniently positioned for access to the Georgian City of Bath, the M4 junction 17 and Chippenham station with its direct line to London Paddington. The market town of Corsham has a thriving high street and the attractive villages of Lacock and Castle Combe within easy reach.

Outside
Pickwick End sits in the middle of its plot with gardens and grounds extending around all sides, amounting to just over half an acre in all. The property is approached via a tall gated entrance with stone pillars, opening onto a large gravel driveway that in turn leads down to a detached double garage. There are well tended lawns to the front with gravel pathways and a yew tree, as well as a number of shrubs and bushes. The careful landscaping cleverly reflects and amplifies the grandeur of the façade of the home.

To the side of the property there is gated access which also provides leads to the barn. The barn, built with mellow stone elevation and a pretty stone tiled roof, offers around 1,445 sq ft of accommodation, principally on the ground floor. There is also an interesting mezzanine level and large storage void. The accommodation is divided between a workshop, cloakroom and double height main room and offers a degree of flexibility to its use. There is further potential for conversion (subject to the necessary permissions).

The enclosed and secluded rear gardens are carefully structured, offering a large level lawn leading down to a greenhouse and composting area. There is also gated access into a formal garden area with tall hedges, well-stocked flowerbeds, focal points, specimen trees and shrubs as well as a flagstone terrace.

Square Footage: 5,277 sq ft
