Turning into the gated driveway from Badminton Road, Old Park, dating back to 1642 when it was part of the Smyth Estate, sits comfortably in it’s plot with the generous parking to the side and the beautiful garden to the rear. The front elevation has some lovely features such as stone mullions around the leaded windows and these form part of the grade II listing.
As you enter through the door to the side of the house you are greeted by a welcoming hallway and immediately the exposed beams and features of this home are evident. On the ground floor there are two sitting rooms which are beautifully presented and both have inglenook fireplaces that were actually found and revealed by the current owners. The beams and stone features follow into almost every room and the kitchen is no different, although the cupboards and worktops have been modernised to give a wonderful working kitchen with range cooker and double doors opening onto the al fresco dining/patio area with the lawned garden beyond. Completing the ground floor internally is a bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and also a well-proportioned study with utility room beyond. The utility room has an outside door which is the perfect place to come in from country walks with dirty boots or muddy paws.
The first floor is reached via the spiral staircase from the hallway at the centre of which is a timber beam thought to be from a ship’s mast, although no proof has been sought. From the landing on the first floor there are four bedrooms, three of which are wonderful size double bedrooms and the fourth a single. The master suite has room enough for a dressing area and en suite shower room, whilst still boasting the period features that flow through the house. The remaining two double bedrooms have the features expected but also the guest room has a balcony overlooking the garden. From the single bedroom a staircase rises to the loft space where, cleverly, two large rooms await. The first has been used as a bedroom by the current owners and then a step up through to a gym. A door from the gym area opens onto a vast expanse which could be used for storage as required.
Outside, there are several sets of gates to the front and a small front garden area, however to the rear is where this property really offers something for the green fingered. A patio area laid to flagstones has been a superb entertaining/dining space and a well-stocked pond sits adjacent. The garden has been expertly maintained over the years and has matured with trees, shrubs and bushes shaping the perimeter. To the rear of the garden is another seating area which allows avid wildlife fans to sit and watch what the fields beyond have to offer.
