Wicksters was built in 1984 by The Elliott Brother Builders and this impressive home has come back to the market having provided a wonderful family home for many years.

Originally built as a five bedroomed property and converted in recent years to a spacious four bedroomed family home. Wicksters is situated in the heart of the delightful village of Slimbridge, where the property stands in its own surrounding mature gardens with a large driveway approached via a five bar entrance gate leading to a double garage. The accommodation is spacious and arranged over two levels including an entrance hallway, cloakroom, impressive 20ft lounge which over looks the surrounding gardens and the spire of St. John's Church. There is a separate dining room, kitchen and breakfast room, comprehensively fitted, with the benefit of an adjoining utility/laundry room. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room complimented by a family bathroom. With original decor the house has been extremely well maintained benefiting from gas central heating and double glazed windows.

Slimbridge is a sought after village surrounded by scenic Severn Vale countryside with village store, primary school, St John's Parish Church and The Tudor Arms Public House at The Patch adjoining the canal and provides peaceful country walks and cycle paths. Beyond is the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust founded by Sir Peter Scott with its superb collection of birds from all over the world. Though essentially rural in character the village is by no means isolated and only minutes from the A38 and approximately 4 miles from junction 13 of the M5 providing convenient commuter links to the larger centres of Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham. There is a main line train station at Box Road, Cam about one and a half miles away with routes to Bristol and London Paddington via Gloucester. This home is offered with vacant possession and no upward chain.
