North Fields, Bickerton, Wetherby, LS22
An impressive and spacious four bedroom village home revealing tastefully appointed family accommodation in a quiet courtyard setting with delightful landscaped gardens, stabling and paddocks, in all amounting to just over two acres.
This substantial and impressive family home enjoys a quiet courtyard position in this convenient and highly regarded village a short distance to the east of Wetherby and within close proximity of excellent road links to major commercial centres. The property benefits from delightful landscaped gardens, stables and paddocks amounting to 2.019 acres (0.817 Ha) or thereabouts, making this an excellent opportunity for the family with equestrian interests.
"The West Wing" was originally constructed in the mid-1990s on the footprint of a former barn and archway, part of the original North Farm Estate at the centre of the village. The property was designed in accordance with strict planning requirements to replicate the previous farm buildings whilst at the same time providing a spacious and flexible layout of accommodation of a high specification. This was achieved using traditional construction techniques and materials including attractive hand clamped bricks, timber double glazed sash windows, gas fired heating and attractive clay pantile roofing with clay tiled tabling. Our clients acquired the property in 1997 and carried out their own programme of high quality improvements including the creation of a dressing room in what was formerly a fifth bedroom, the provision of fitted furniture to the principal bedrooms and the construction of a bespoke stable block.
An impressive central hallway with guest cloakroom and galleried landing leads to an elegant drawing room, study and garden room, a formal dining room, well-appointed breakfast kitchen and separate utility room.
The master bedroom has a cleverly designed dressing room, which also could serve as a nursery bedroom, and its own en-suite shower room, and three further double family bedrooms are served by a luxury house bathroom.
"The West Wing" forms part of an attractive courtyard comprising homes of a similar high standard with visitor parking adjacent to the main entrance and the ownership of the distinctive archway and clock tower. There is gated access to fully enclosed landscaped gardens and excellent visitor car parking to the front of a detached double garage with a useful studio/playroom/office above. Finally, a gated green lane leads to a fully enclosed paddock and bespoke stable block, in all amounting to 1.7 acres or thereabouts, thus satisfying the requirements of the equestrian enthusiasts.
Bickerton is a popular choice amongst family purchasers as a direct result of its ease of access to the nearby market town of Wetherby with its excellent choice of shops and leisure amenities.

The village is situated within the catchment for Tockwith Primary School, King James School in Knaresborough and Tadcater Grammar School.
