About this property

  • Situated in a lovely semi rural setting, Park House Farm is a light and well presented unlisted family home, the original part of which, with its exposed timbers and beams, is believed to date from the 18th century with later 20th century additions. The property occupies an enviable position with far reaching views over its own land and neighbouring land. Also included in the sale is an area of extensive ancient woodland and adjoining paddock extending to approximately 67 acres.

    Internal accommodation includes light and airy south facing reception rooms with high ceilings, period fireplaces and wood burning stoves, a farmhouse-style kitchen, situated in the older part of the house, has an oil fired four oven Aga with back boiler for central heating and water, there is space for various freestanding appliances. Off the rear hall there is a WC and a utility room with space for white goods.

    Situated on the first floor are four well proportioned bedrooms, the majority which enjoy the lovely views. They are served by a Jack and Jill shower room, a separate bathroom and an en suite shower cubicle to the main bedroom.

    The property is approached via a long shared drive. A gravel drive sweeps around to the side of the property where there is ample parking. An excellent detached and very well proportioned barn currently incorporates a gym, WCs and showers, garaging/tractor/mower store and workshop/store room. This substantial barn offers excellent further potential subject to planning permission.

    The level gardens and the immediate land amount to about 5.5 acres with the paddocks being unfenced to the boundary. The extensive ancient woodland is located to the south west and is a haven for wildlife. There is a 2.7 acre triangular field down to pasture linking the woodland to the drive.
