8 bedroom detached house for sale

Ampthill, Bedfordshire


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb opportunity to acquire a significant country house listed Grade Two and dating from 1629, making it one of the last properties to be built during the Jacobean period.

Little Park Farm will be ideally suited to a large family who can take advantage of the superb accommodation divided equally between both entertainment space and eight bedrooms all with en suite facilities. There is also what must be an almost unique combination in a private home of a floodlit tennis court, squash court and outdoor swimming pool. A real treat for the sporting enthusiast!

Whilst the accommodation stretches to over 7,500 square feet there is still the opportunity for both spacious and cosy amongst the reception rooms. Overall the accommodation is extremely flexible and offers a self-contained apartment and also a separate guest suite as well as a games room. There are a wide range of outbuildings including garages (with automatic doors), car ports and an open fronted storage barn.

The grounds offer both formal gardens and paddocks extending to in excess of 5.7 acres (2.33 hectares) (subject to survey) providing potential for equestrian pursuits. Little Park Farm is approached from either of two formal driveways both accessed by electronic wrought iron gates set in pillared entrances.

Ampthill is a small town and civil parish in Bedfordshire, between Bedford and Luton, with a population of about 6,000. A regular market has taken place on Thursdays for centuries. The town has several lively Public Houses, a wide variety of restaurants, a Waitrose supermarket and a selection of small independent specialist shops and a number of small businesses such as solicitors, estate agents and financial services. Larger businesses are to be found on the commercial and industrial developments on the outskirts, along the town's bypass. Ampthill has a high concentration of public amenities, including schools (Redborne Upper School), doctor's surgeries, fire and ambulance stations and a police station. Private schools are well catered for by the popular schools of The Harpur Trust and others in Bedford. School buses operate.

Local sporting requirements are particularly well catered for with Ampthill rugby, football and cricket clubs being approximately half a mile from Little Park Farm.
