A two double bedroom apartment in a sought-after Grade II* listed country house.
Situated in a convenient setting just off the A40 is Sandywell Park, a stunning Grade II* listed residence built in 1704 and now converted to just 10 apartments. The house was built by Henry Brett and in 1712 was sold to Lord Conway, who added the north and south wings, the sweeping staircase and the gateways. It was later sold by his son to the MP for Gloucestershire, Thomas Tracy. The house has been recognised by English Heritage for its historical interest, including the Baroque-style five-bar front with outsizes Doric pilasters and large windows crowned by a balustraded parapet with urn finials. More impressive still is the main doorway, with its fluted Corinthian columns. Internally there is 18th-century panelling and pediment door frames, while externally there is a striking avenue of limes. The present entrance to the north has an imposing gateway.
Apartment 6 is situated on the ground floor of the house and has magnificent views over the surrounding gardens and parkland. The property is of generous proportions, extending to more than 1250 sq. ft., and retains a wealth of period character including the characteristic high ceilings, sash windows and decorative plasterwork. The tall windows throughout provide excellent natural light and also serve to frame the lovely views.
Accessed from the main communal hall, your private door leads to an entrance hallway with storage cupboard and fitted shelving. To the left is the very grand 24 ft long sitting room with two sash windows, beautiful open fireplace and access to the well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room, with secondary access to the communal hall. There is a principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, a further double bedroom and a separate shower room.
Sandywell Park is set within approximately 5.8 acres of beautifully maintained landscaped gardens and park-like grounds. There is also an outdoor heated swimming pool and a tennis court. In addition to off-road parking, the apartment also has a garage en bloc.
