A wonderful property forming part of a magnificent country house and providing versatile accommodation including a high ceilinged 32’ reception room and a wealth of period features. Wyke Hall comprises twelve properties in total, a communal parkland setting with tennis court and swimming pool, and is conveniently situated on the edge of Gillingham.
Wyke Hall, which dates from the fourteenth century, is an impressive country house which was skilfully converted and divided into separate houses in 1972. This successful development was achieved by refurbishment to a high standard whilst preserving the best characteristics of the property. West House is part of this fine building and retains many classic period features. There is a large reception room, ‘The Great Room’, with a beautiful plasterwork ceiling, which was copied from Hampton Court, together with an impressive stone mullioned bay window and deep window seats. The previous owner carried out a programme of improvements including fitted cupboards and double doors into the drawing room and installing all radiators with thermostatic valves. All residents of the property have the use of about six acres of grounds including a tennis court, swimming pool, croquet lawn and lake.
West House has a garage with power and light connected, rented from the company at £1.00 per annum. The grounds surrounding Wyke Hall are a particular feature amounting to approximately 6 acres of parkland interspersed with a magnificent selection of mature trees. There are many well stocked flower and shrub borders and the lake adjoins the southern boundary. In addition, there is a hard tennis court and swimming pool (heated in summer).
To the front of the house is a small area of garden which is mainly laid to lawn with flower borders which is maintained by the owner.
Wyke Hall is situated in the small hamlet of Wyke on the edge of Gillingham which has facilities for most everyday needs including a range of shops (Waitrose) and offices, sports centre, library and mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo and the West Country. The A303 which links with the M3 makes London accessible by road and other main towns in the area including Shaftesbury, Sherborne, Salisbury and Bath are within motoring distance. There are a number of excellent schools in the area including Port Regis, St Mary’s, Sherborne, Bruton, Downside, Sandroyd, Bryanston, Milton Abbey, Knighton House, and Clayesmore.
