Just a two minute walk from the Wick Country Park, this attractive, Bovis built, 4 Bedroom Detached House is situated in a pleasant set back mews of two and enjoys a sunny West facing Garden, along with nearly 1,400sq ft of accommodation, which includes a feature wrap-around open plan Lounge - Dining Area - Kitchen, a separate Playroom/Study and two Ensuite Shower Rooms, in addition to a swish refitted Bathroom.

The upvc windows have Georgian glazing bars giving additional character and many have been fitted with elegant, custom made solid wood Plantation shutters. Gorgeous Oak wood flooring flows throughout the open plan areas and a modern Potterton Titanium Boiler sits out of the way in the huge Loft, which offers an obvious and affordable way of adding even more living space.

Its private setting behind a tall hedge giving a high degree of seclusion, provides parking for 5 cars, in addition to the Garage, which being double length, offers the clear potential for conversion to one or two more living rooms.

Just a 3-4 minute stroll away is the local neighbourhood shopping centre on Silva Island Way, which includes a Tesco Express, Chemist, a couple of takeaways and the Robert Frew Medical Centre. Abacus Primary School is just a 5-6 minute dash with the kids, and Wickford Town Centre with its Railway Station adjacent is a short 1.1 mile drive, 20-25 minutes on foot using the network of 'cut throughs'.

The 'Wick' as the area is more commonly known, was once a combination of a large natural park and farmland, with the estate designed to retain as much open space and greenery as possible, hence there are a number of pretty walks throughout the Wick, with several enclosed woodland copses dotted about too. In addition, to the south-east of the estate is the aforementioned Wick Country Park, 50 acres of former agricultural land which has been landscaped to provide over 2km of easy access trails, a 5-acre lake, ponds and woodland.

The Accommodation

Combining style with security, the stylish, contemporary ‘grey on the outside, white on the inside' front door opens through to:


Gorgeous Oak wood flooring extends through into the adjoining open plan Lounge, Dining area and Kitchen.


Smart white tiles and a white two-piece Cloakroom set give a fresh bright look, with patterned floor tiles adding a dash of style.

LOUNGE 18ft 6' x 10ft 4' (5.6m x 3.1m)

Bringing the outside in during the summer months, the almost full width, bi-folding door system floods the room with light and the beautiful Oak wood flooring adds warmth and character.

The smooth plastered ceiling, as found throughout this modern home, has inset downlighting and hidden wiring allows for a neat and uncluttered look for a wall mounted TV.

A smart black contemporary style radiator with its polished chrome thermostat, provides plenty of heat.

DINING AREA 11ft 6' x 8ft 7' (3.5m x 2.6m)

Drenched in sunlight from the light streaming through the bi-folding doors, which also feature integrated slat venetian blinds, encapsulated within the sealed units, ensuring a dust free environment. These slats can be tilted or raised using the magnetic slider handle on one side of each glass unit.

KITCHEN 18ft x 7ft 8' (5.5m x 2.3m)

Streamlined Matt Grey Handleless Kitchen units provide a wealth of storage, are topped with solid wood Worktops and complimented by snazzy mosaic splashback tiling.

A host of built-in and hidden integrated appliances comprise a 5-Ring Gas Hob with a Multifunction Oven below and wide stainless-steel Chimney style Extractor Hood above, an integrated Fridge/Freezer, Dishwasher and Washing Machine.

Finishing specification includes a pull-out corner carousel unit, stainless-steel sockets and light switch, a Peninsula unit giving separation from the kitchen to the dining area and elegant, custom-made Wooden plantation shutters, as found here and all four bedrooms.

A low-level door with a push release mechanism (so no unsightly handle for a sleek look) opens to reveal the under stairs storage cupboard.

PLAYROOM 8ft x 7ft 3' (2.4m x 2.2m)

A versatile room with a soft grey carpet and a front facing window with Georgian glazing bars adding additional character (as found throughout the house).


Stairs from the Hall rise to the spacious 1st floor landing, which sees a swish Glass Balustrade topped with an Oak handrail.

With the Potterton Titanium combination boiler relocated to the loft, the airing cupboard has been freed up to provide great storage.

Speaking of the loft, the one in this home is huge! Peaking up into the loft, one's eyebrows raise at the surprisingly vast space up here.
Converting the loft would be an obvious and affordable way of adding room to this house and in fact the current owner did have plans drawn up for both loft and garage conversions: The plans are held on file as PDFs, and are available to be emailed to you, upon request.

The property is one of two in a private Mews.

We understand from the vendors that in the past, permission was granted for a dropped curb to give direct front access too.

The front drive itself provides parking for 4-5 cars in addition to the attached garage.

GARAGE 31ft 8' x 8ft 6' (9.7m x 2.6m)

A double length garage with up and over door at the front, and a rear courtesy door from the garden.
