A beautifully presented mid-Victorian house with a self-contained one bedroom annexe and a large garden situated on the edge of a popular village. Built in 1872 as a cottage hospital and gifted to the village by the
local Hambro family, Deer Park House is a handsome family house. EPC: F.

The property has retained many of its original features including fine cut-stone fireplaces, the tiled floor in the hall, ceiling coving, timber floors and an attractive carved oak staircase. There is good ceiling height throughout the house which, along with generously sized windows, gives it a good feeling of light internal space. On the ground floor, there are two well proportioned reception rooms, one either side of the hall and, off the rear hall, are the study and the large sitting room, which has a fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove and opens out into the orangery overlooking the garden. Opposite the sitting room are the kitchen/breakfast room and adjacent pantry. There is also a comprehensive range of additional ground floor rooms providing plenty of utility and storage space. On the first floor is the master bedroom, which has an ensuite bath and shower. The adjacent guest bedroom, which is ensuite to the family bathroom, three further double bedrooms, single bedroom and a separate shower room.
To one side of the house is a gravelled parking area in front of the double garage, which is attached to the main house but also has its own access to the first floor self- contained annexe. The formal garden lies on one side of the house, with a wide terrace running along its south- western elevation alongside a broad lawn bounded on two sides by wisteria and evergreen hedging. In all the garden and grounds extend to just under 3 acres.
