Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Wickham Court is a historically important, early 17th century former court. Grade II* listed, it displays a plethora of period charm typical of both this building period and houses of historic note. It is believed that Oliver Cromwell and General Fairfax held council in the rooms in 1645 before their march to Bristol. The property boasts generous entertaining spaces as well as cellars and utilities. The house is beheld only to its own spectacular grounds of about 0.44 acres which is a rare find for a city house. The grounds are walled and split into a number of sections, they enjoy peaceful surroundings backing on to maintained woodlands to the rear of the house. The accommodation is diverse with large open rooms all enjoying a plethora of period features, from wide wooden boards, to open fires and deep window seats with working shutters. There are a range of reception rooms, ideal for the growing family as well as a large home office on the top floor – crucial for home working. All of the bedrooms are well proportioned and utilise one of the two bathrooms. All principal rooms enjoy fine views over both the large private gardens as well as the surrounding woodland and valley, which opens out behind the house.

Accessed at the end of a private cul-de-sac, Wickham Court offers peace and tranquillity close to the thriving centre of Bristol. The substantial gardens are split into two sections incorporating a patio terrace with excellent access from the main house. This in turn leads on to the rear garden, banked with a large period wall providing increased security and privacy. There is a large grassed area with a number of well stocked borders providing year round colour and foliage as well as a vegetable garden, pond and further mature trees.


The property is surrounded by open woodland. The owners enjoy the surrounding area greatly and many woodland walks can be found as part of the Frome Valley walkway close to the main house. The River Frome is also close by and meandering woodland river walks are enjoyed by many residences. Stapleton itself has a petrol station and community shop as well as the well regarded Colston’s Independent School. Stapleton is also popular with the commuter as it provides excellent access to Junction 2 of the M32 and in turn Bristol to the south and the M4 to the north. Bristol Parkway Station is nearby and provides high speed train links to London Paddington within 90 minutes.
