Full description

The property was originally one house, built in the late 1700s, which had been converted into three cottages later on. In the 1970s the cottagtes had been incorporated into one property with an impressive Georgian façade.

The front of Park Cottage is extremely pretty with its terracotta pantile roof and dormer windows facing south onto a quiet rural road, with views over an orchard, it sits behind beautifully sculpted mature topiary and black iron railings. The gravel drive sweeps down the side of the property flanked by more immaculately-trimmed evergreen hedging to the generous parking area beside the old coach house now accommodating three garages with a vast space for an office or games room, as it once was, above. Adjacent to the coach house are two sizable dog runs leading to brick built kennels within the garage space.

The beautifully tended, extensive garden of circa 1.6 acres (stms) is mainly laid to lawn with a paddock behind, all enclosed by mature hedging and trees. To the back of the house in a very sunny spot, the owners have transformed the foundations of former garaging into an elegant terrace of York stone bordered by low sheltering walls and illuminated by spherical lights atop pillars, and featuring a fountain on a circular dais. An attractive, roofed, brick-built barbeque at one end makes it the perfect area for al fresco entertaining or, indeed, just for relaxing in the sun.

Inside the house it is everything you would expect from a Queen Anne style property and immaculately presented, like the garden. The rooms are all of good proportions, nice and square and the large Georgian windows shed plenty of light inside. There are period fireplaces in most rooms. The sitting room, dining room and study have traditional cornicing, and every bedroom has a wash hand basin. Within the landings and passages you note the elegant Georgian archways, some, like the front door, with pretty glass panes above. Two of the seven bedrooms are accessed by a second staircase which is very convenient when having visitors to stay.

The location of the property is ideal if you are looking for a quiet and rural position yet in the centre of a small village with the amenities of a market town only three miles away. The village of Frampton is situated on the edge of the vast marine creek levees created during the Bronze Age and a short distance away is the RSPB nature reserve at Frampton Marsh which is a heavenly, tranquil place with over two miles of footpaths to explore whilst admiring the birdlife.
