    About this property

    • Steeped in history, Park House is a major portion of a fine converted country house, backing onto the 'Old Mile' of Ascot Racecourse. This unique landmark property, dating back to the early 1900s, has many wonderful period features including tall arched windows, high ceilings, decorative cornicing and elegant fireplaces.

      Accompanying Park House is Five Furlongs, an attractive three bedroom coach house set away from the main house and also believed to date from around 1900. Both properties have been meticulously restored and modernised by the current owners.

      The front door to Park House opens into the grand reception hall with wine cellar and main staircase. Access to the cleverly concealed underground wine cellar is via a spiral staircase with hydraulic hatch. It features extensive beautiful cabinetry and Gaggenau fridges for wine storage. Approached from the hall are the three principal receptions rooms, the study/ library, drawing and dining rooms, the latter two being adjoined and believed to have formed the ballroom to the original mansion house. All enjoy lovely views over the garden. Beyond is the kitchen/breakfast room comprising a Wolf range cooker with hob cover, Sub Zero fridge freezer, excellent range of cabinets, dishwasher, and space for an informal dining area. The ground floor also features a utility room with ample storage space, plumbing for washing machines and a door to the guest cloakroom.

      Approached via the main staircase, the first floor features a wonderful octagonal landing which provides access to all of the bedrooms on this floor. The principal bedroom suite is of particular note with dual dressing rooms featuring stunning cabinetry designed by Duncan Doig and a luxurious en suite with wash basins, a steam shower and three Juliet balconies which enjoy easterly views over the garden, which in turn allows the room to be flooded with the natural morning sunlight. An additional two spacious double bedrooms, both with wash basins, a family bathroom with skylight and an abundance of storage complete the accommodation on this floor.

      On the top floor is the fourth bedroom, a media room and a shower room. This floor would be the perfect area for a live-in help, or a den area for teenagers. Furthermore, there is excellent loft space accessed from the media room which is ideal for secure storage.

      The stunning manicured gardens were designed by leading landscape designer, Taylor Tripp and are a true feature of this beautiful home. A paved terrace extends along the rear of the property with most of the principal reception rooms having French doors leading onto it. From here there are pretty views over the sunken garden with an ornamental pond. There is a separate patio terrace with loggia providing the perfect spot to enjoy the shade on a sunny day.

      Within the adjacent walled garden there is an outdoor heated swimming pool and pool house with a plant room, shower/ wet room and a cosy sitting room which is perfect for storing summer furniture or, alternatively, could easily be used as a separate study area.

      Overlooking the pool is Five Furlongs, an extremely pretty former coach house. The property has been modernised and designed to maintain a character feel with modern features, with most principal rooms enjoying a south or south westerly outlook. It offers multiple options for the next owners, from separate guest house or multi-generational living to a spacious home office building.

      On the ground floor the triple aspect kitchen has been fitted with modern units and appliances. There is an adjoining dining room and then double aspect sitting room beyond, both of which are flooded with natural light and have French doors leading out to the pool and garden. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom.

      Beside the swimming pool is a lawned area with trained apple trees and a greenhouse. Vehicular access to the properties is on the far side of Five Furlongs with an impressive tree lined approached to the ample parking and garaging which can house approximately 7 cars, two of which can be displayed and enjoyed through large windows overlooking the formal garden. The five car garage has underfloor heating and could alternatively be used as a work space or studio.

      Additionally, there is gym just inside the entrance gate, set slightly away from the accommodation, with beautiful modern Crittall doors and views over the wild flower meadow area. A special feature is the gate providing pedestrian access to the ‘Old Mile.'

      Please note, there is an annual charge through the Residents Association to cover the maintenance and upkeep of the common areas such as the driveway and verges.

      Certain fixtures and fittings such as the fitted carpets, curtains, light fittings, garden equipment, furniture and statuary are expressly excluded from the sale. Certain items (excluding the statuary) may be made available by separate negotiation.
