Wyke House is a substantial, detached, six bedroom Grade II* Listed farmhouse constructed of dressed stone under a claytile roof. It dates back to 1650, with evidence of 17th and 20th century additions on the western wing. Having been a much loved family home for three generations, the house is in need of sympathetic renovation and modernisation in order to restore its potential as a wonderful country home. The house has retained a wealth of character and period features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, flagstone flooring and stone eaves and gables. The layout of the ground floor is well organised with generous accommodation comprising a large entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, dining room, drawing room, office, pantry, garden room and downstairs cloakroom. An impressive oak staircase leads to the first floor comprising a master bedroom suite, 5 further double bedrooms, all of which enjoy unspoilt views across the farm and a family bathroom. There are further attic rooms accessed via a secondary staircase.
Garden and Grounds
To the north of the farmhouse is a walled courtyard providing
parking and to the south is the former route of a moat, now part of the garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn and slopes down to farmland and the River Yeo valley beyond.
The south facing garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees. To the west is a vegetable garden whilst to the north are a number of traditional outhouses currently used for storage, some of these are listed including a detached cottage.
The house is approached from the north east, a no-through road leads through farmland and past the attractive farm cottages and farm buildings which are detailed later in this brochure. The road runs under the railway and is then lined with mature oak trees and wide mown verges and stone walls behind. To the south of the house is an attractive paddock laid to permanent pasture which has been grazed by cattle and would be ideally suited to horses or livestock, it extends to 6.99 acres.

The ground floor comprises of 2 reception rooms and a kitchen whilst the first floor includes 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. Like the farmhouse, Moat Cottage has
