The Property
Park farmhouse is believed to date from the 17th century with later additions. Formerly part of the Gayhurst estate the farmhouse borders Gayhurst Park with views across to Gayhurst House.

The period stone farmhouse is constructed of stone and brick under an award winning thatched roof, with the annexe having a slated roof. Whilst in the ownership of the current vendors the property has undergone an extensive and sympathetic programme of refurbishment and is presented in excellent condition. The accommodation is generous, flexible and many period features remain, including leaded light windows, exposed beams and moulded ceilings to some rooms.

Attached to the east side of the farmhouse and benefitting from its own independent access is the self-contained annexe which also enjoys a link through to the first floor if one required additional main accommodation.

Lying across the tarmac courtyard is the former village reading room which has been converted into two home offices, along with a separate workshop/ machinery store.

The mature landscaped grounds are a pure delight and divided into rooms. Lying close to the rear of the house are tiered dining and seating areas. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate all that Park Farmhouse has to offer.

Accommodation
Stone steps lead up to the part glazed front door opening into the reception/dining hall with staircase rising to the part galleried first floor landing. A glazed door opens into the sitting room enjoying a dual aspect with cast iron fireplace and recessed cupboard to one side. The impressive drawing room lies beyond with leaded light windows overlooking the main formal lawn. The fireplace is the focal point and recessed display and storage cupboards are located in the internal walls.

The inner hall runs through the middle of the house providing access to the vaulted cellar, cloakrooms, boot room and kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fully tiled and features a bespoke fitted kitchen with matching central island and dresser. The work surfaces are granite and appliances include cream three oven Aga, Bosch combi oven/microwave and dishwasher. Hotpoint double drawer fridge and Bosch freezer. Within the kitchen is an integral Beko washing machine. French doors open onto the rear garden. The breakfast room is accessed through an archway and enjoys a dual aspect with corner fireplace and connecting door to the drawing room.

First Floor
The galleried landing enjoys views across to Tyringham Hall. The fully tiled family bathroom and cloakroom lie off the landing and serve three well-proportioned double bedrooms with part vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom suite lies at the rear of the farmhouse with views across the rear garden and adjoining parkland, with Gayhurst House in the distance. Steps lead down to the fitted dressing room. The en suite shower room is fully tiled with door to the rear landing providing access to a rear staircase and annexe at first floor level.

Annexe
Accessed independently or from the farmhouse at first floor level and providing fitted kitchen and shower room on the ground floor. Steps lead up to the sitting room with stable door opening onto an outdoor seating area. Stairs rise again to a generous landing with access to double bedroom currently used as a gym.

Garage
The double garage lies to the east of the house and accessed via double doors with power and light connected.

Outbuildings
The detached outbuildings are constructed of brick and stone under a red tile and grey slated roof. The current layout provides a single garage and two offices.

Garden and Grounds
Wooden electric gates open onto a tarmac drive, which leads to the courtyard providing an abundance of parking and access to the garaging. The main grounds lie to the south and west of the house. Tiered seating areas lie close to the rear of the house with steps up to the rear lawns which border Gayhurst Park. In the southern corner is a decked seating area.
