Listed for its architectural and historical importance, this mansion is for sale through Strutt and Parker
Grade II listed for its architectural and historical importance, The Wyck in the village of St Ippolyts near Hitchin is for sale through Strutt and Parker for £2.5m. It was originally built as a hall house in Elizabeth I’s reign. By the time it was featured in Country Life in 1905 it was a mansion.
The house (above) has recently been refurbished to incorporate the best of ancient and modern. There are four double bedrooms, four bathrooms and a 22ft sitting room with two fireplaces. The kitchen with Miele appliances was designed by Edwin Loxley – and leads to the separate breakfast room and dining room that opens on to the south facing garden.
The three and a quarter acre grounds include a guest lodge, heated swimming pool, tennis court, a new Hartley greenhouse and room to park nine cars in the drive.
All-in-all, a small corner of England to treasure.
