Bickerton House is an exceptional country home. Built in 2006, it is filled with state-of-the-art technology, including underfloor heating and LED lighting throughout, a C-Bus computerised lighting system, and a LexCom Home Network.
The reception hall with impressive split marble staircase sets the scene and the outstanding quality of this home is apparent throughout with Ted Todd engineered light oak flooring on the ground floor, apart from in the fully fitted Mowlem kitchen, which has a porcelain tiled floor. This is an excellent working space and has many integrated appliances. Double doors lead out to the main courtyard with wonderful space for al fresco dining and entertaining.
The family room, just off the kitchen, is stylishly separated from the orangery by a double-faced fireplace. The drawing room is well-proportioned with a feature fireplace and doors out to the courtyard. The library and office both have fitted shelving behind sliding panel doors. The second kitchen/laundry room also has a cloakroom and a back door.
The principal bedroom has a Juliette balcony with views out to the rear garden, and a fabulous en suite bathroom, featuring an Antonio Lupi bath, a walk-in rainfall shower and dressing areas. The landing has fitted storage and a balcony with snug area with views out over the Cheshire countryside. The four guest suites are each well-proportioned with en suite facilities and built-in wardrobes.
The lower ground floor is accessed from the sunken courtyard and the reception hall. It provides further entertaining space including a fully fitted media room (currently split via a stud wall), games room and wine store.
The Annexe provides excellent ancillary accommodation. On the ground floor is an open plan sitting room, fully equipped kitchen, guest cloakroom, and a carved ash spiral staircase with wide tread to the first floor. The landing leads to the guest bedroom, shower room and sitting room/bedroom 3. The master bedroom
with en suite bathroom and built-in wardrobe is found off the sitting room. The Annexe has its own private courtyard.
The property is approached from the lane via an imposing entrance with electric gates. There is a sweeping, hornbeam tree lined, chipping driveway leading to the main house, annexe and double garage. The spacious driveway provides parking for multiple vehicles, with the double garage, which has remote operated electric doors, offering further parking, storage and workspace.
The extensive grounds amount to approximately 8 acres of formal gardens, paddocks and woodland. The stunning landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn and include a delightful thatched summerhouse (with electricity supply) and ornamental lily pond.
The 3 stall stables and tack block stand beside the manège to the south of the main house. The paddocks are all fenced, and the double field shelter is located on the woodland boundary.
