    About this property

    • Park House is a substantial family home in the centre of its plot, set along a gravel drive and behind timber electric gates. Built in circa 1978, the current owners added a two storey extension in 2015 and the accommodation is of a high specification and extremely well balanced with three reception rooms, study, entertaining-sized entrance hall, boot/utility room and a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is a very social space in this house and benefits from Miele electric ovens and induction hob as well as a 4 oven AIMS program electric Aga. A breakfast bar provides room for at least four people to dine and French doors lead outside to a patio dining area.

      In addition to the extension the owners have invested in excellent fitted joinery throughout the bedrooms and study providing important and worthwhile storage. The first floor comprises five generous bedrooms (two with en suite facilities) and a generous family bathroom with separate shower. There is an abundance of natural light throughout the house.

      French doors lead form both the sitting room and drawing room to the south facing pool terrace which has an electric sun awning for shade and is adjacent to the swimming pool. A games pavilion (with power and electric light) makes a good gymnasium and/or teenagers den. There is ample parking and at the back of the plot a three bay garage with plumbed water, electricity and ladder access to a boarded loft. This could make an ideal further home office or annexe accommodation subject to conversion and permissions.
