About this property

  • Park Farm is an imposing farmhouse, perfectly positioned amongst its own mature grounds of about 3.5 acres. With peaceful surroundings, and a good degree of privacy, the property is a brilliant lifestyle opportunity.

    The potential of the property as a whole is tremendous. The house is at a stage of needing complete modernization and renovation, affording the next custodian the opportunity to create their style within an attractive period house which enjoys some fine original detail such as fire places, Norfolk pamment floors and a lovely green 4 oven Aga in the kitchen. The accommodation spans about 3600 sq ft, over three floors, with the five bedrooms and two bathrooms, together with a great layout on the ground floor with formal and informal rooms, together with country house additions such as cellar and pantry.

    Linked to the house is an indoor pool, again in need of refurbishment, with the room measuring 14.8m x 6.8m presenting the option of multiple uses.

    The farm is set well back from a small country lane, with a gravelled driveway passing over a small beck, leading to a parking and turning area adjoining the house, which in turn leads through to a walled courtyard with further parking for many cars.

    The grounds have a fine maturity to them, with expanses of lawn, hedged boundaries, specimen trees including willow, beech and oak. There are herbaceous beds, paved south facing terraced area, large pond, meadow and polytunnel, providing a great foundation for further landscaping if required.

    A range of outbuildings including stabling and former calf sheds allows the imagination to dream up different uses such as an area to work from home, art studio, gym or perhaps an annexe.

I could easily imagine my children running around the gardens, boating on the pond, or adding to the chicken collection, it would be a wonderful lifestyle.
