Listed Grade II being of architectural and historic importance, The Wyck was originally built as a Hall House under the reign of Elizabeth I; it was then enlarged in the 1800s and featured as a “mansion” in Country Life in 1905. Most recently, The Wyck has been beautifully refurbished and modernised, whilst still maintaining its original period detailing throughout. The property, which is of timber-framed construction, is extremely attractive from both the inside and out, with red brick and timber window frames, plus impressive original fireplaces combining with some contemporary additions. There is a 22ft sitting room with two fireplaces, while the kitchen, designed by Edwin Loxley has granite worktops, twin integrated Miele ovens, two warming draws, a steam oven and coffee machine and a split Belfast sink. This leads on to the breakfast room and dining room, the latter of which benefits from French doors onto the gardens. The garden room is a modern addition, with glass walls overlooking the landscaped grounds to the rear.

Upstairs there are four generous double bedrooms, including the master, which has its own dressing room and en suite bathroom. A further two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms or shower rooms, while there is an additional shower room to the ground floor.
