Main House Ground Floor
A shelter canopy running along part of the front elevation providing a small veranda covers the front entrance. This opens into the large welcoming reception hall with doors leading off to the principal reception rooms, while a useful ground floor shower room with WC and cupboard lie off the hall. Double doors lead off to the right to the sitting room. This is a delightful room full of character having a beamed ceiling, a double aspect with a window to the rear and patio doors to the fore that open onto the front patio to take full advantage of the fantastic views. A focal point is the feature stone fireplace with an inset wood burner on a slate hearth within a stone surround. The room is completed with a fitted bar with wine rack to the rear. We understand that the bar and indeed the wine rack have been made from wood off the farm. French doors lead off to the conservatory that is again a perfect place to relax in and enjoy the views.
An inner hall leads off to the left of the reception hall to the remainder of the ground floor and with access to outside at the rear. On the immediate right is a useful study with fitted desks and shelving. On the left is the formal dining room with views across the front. The impressive kitchen dining room sits at the end of the property. This is a modern contemporary kitchen that is still in keeping with the character of the property and being well lit with plenty of natural daylight having double aspect windows. There is a Brazilian slate tiled floor and a well equipped kitchen area that includes an extensive range of fitted base units with work surfaces over with plinth lighting and incorporating a butlers sink. Integrated appliances include a microwave and grill oven, Zanussi fridge/freezer and 5 ring Rangemaster dual fuel electric oven with gas hob and extractor hood over, fitted Bosch dishwasher and 7 bottle wine cooler. Further storage includes matching wall mounted units that include a dresser style display. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with cloakroom off.
Stairs rise from the reception hall to the first floor accommodation. The master bedroom suite lies at one end of the property featuring a dormer style window to the fore that again has fantastic rural views. There is a good range of built in wardrobes and fitted cupboards that provide ample storage. This bedroom enjoys a dressing area and an en suite with Jacuzzi bath and a separate shower. Three further double bedrooms lie on the first floor, two facing the front and one to the rear. These share the use of a family bathroom. A useful walk-in laundry room completes the floor.
Park House Farm Cottage Ground Floor
This is a charming detached cottage that lies across the courtyard from the main house. We understand that it has the benefit of full planning consent for residential use although in the past has been successfully used as a holiday letting cottage and ancillary accommodation.
The front door leads into the main reception sitting room. This room features a beamed ceiling together with the warm focal point of an inglenook fireplace with stone surround and a wood burner on a slate hearth. Open plan to this room on the right is the dining room that leads through to the fitted kitchen. A rear hallway leads through to the bathroom with separate shower and access to outside at the rear.
Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor accommodation that includes 2 bedrooms overlooking the front with one featuring exposed A frames.
Park House enjoys a fantastic aspect with views of open countryside to the fore down to the superb lake. It sits within its own post and rail fenced and lawned grounds with mature shrubs and bushes together with a block paved drive to the fore with circular central shrub bed. A large courtyard lies to the side and rear of the main house providing ample parking. The cottage also enjoys its own garden with patio area to the rear.
An attractive stable block and double garage with clock tower lie across the courtyard. The stables include 3 loose boxes (one currently being used as a workshop) and an enclosed outside area. The double garage features remote controlled electric up and over doors. Below the stables are a large workshop/ implement shed and a cubicle shed (both approx. 75' x 40' (22.86m x 12.19m). The stable block roof has been fitted with solar panel (PV) cells for electricity generation.
Park House sits almost centrally within about 69 acres (stms) of its own land including a delightful private drive that bisects some neighbouring land until it reaches the farmstead. The land is predominantly south-facing, level or gently sloping being within a stockproof boundary ring fence with a series of interconnecting gates that include many traditional timber gates which enhance the character of the land. The land itself comprises a mix of pasture, mature broad leaf woodland and an area of wetter lying land and natural habitat that is ideal for Snipe and Woodcock. Indeed there are several areas that are suited for conservation projects to encourage wildlife, etc.
A superb private fishing lake completes the property. This sits below the farmstead within delightful surroundings that have matured to provide a very nice amenity with specimen trees alongside established natural growth creating a very pleasant environment. A timber summer house on the edge of the lake provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the setting. The lake is stocked with trout and attracts plenty of wildfowl throughout the year.
