The Story

Looking out from their open plan living room and kitchen, the new owners of the apartment at Arlington House will take in the leafy views of their exclusive setting. The two bedroom penthouse property overlooks the property’s communal gardens, as well as the highly desirable Park Estate itself.
“This apartment is on the top floor of the former period house,” explains the agent marketing the property. “The whole building would once have been a grand Victorian home for a single owner. In 2003 to 2004, it was very sympathetically converted and extended, and now comprises a number of well designed apartments. This one could be ideal for someone working in central Nottingham, or someone who is keen to have a tranquil home in an outstanding location like this that they can walk home to at the end of their busy day.”

THE HISTORIC PARK
Renowned as one of Nottingham’s most desirable addresses, The Park Estate is a 150 acre private residential area to the west of the centre of the city. It has a tranquil and genteel ambience and yet is just a short distance from the city centre.
The Park was created in what was once Nottingham Castle’s deer park. Its first domestic building in The Park was constructed opposite Nottingham Castle’s gatehouse in 1809 as the vicarage to St Mary’s Church. Major development began in the 1820s under the fourth Duke of Newcastle and continued under the fifth Duke, Henry Pelham Clinton, who appointed Thomas Chambers Hine, the city’s finest architect, to design the great houses.

LIGHT FANASTIC
The Park Estate is often described as a “village within a city” and still known for its great character. In addition to some exquisite examples of architecture, it is also one of the few residential areas in Europe that retains its original gas lighting network.
“It is wonderful to walk through The Park when the lamps are lit and the area is shrouded in a beautiful glow,” he says. “The other properties here are also extremely attractive and add to the general splendour of the area.”

BRIGHT SPACE
The penthouse apartment is situated on the second floor of Arlington House and is accessed via a well maintained and lit staircase. Visitors find themselves entering via a reception hall, and are then guided through into the open plan living dining and kitchen area.
“This is the focal point of the apartment,” he says. “There is a feeling of light and space in here as the apartment faces to the front of Arlington House. The kitchen area is well fitted with light oak units and granite work surfaces and the sash windows take in views across the gardens and surrounding area.”

FLEXIBLE HOME
The kitchen area also includes integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine; built in electric oven and gas hob with extractor hood.
“The layout of this could be ideal for anyone wishing to entertain friends and chat to them as they relax on the comfortable seating while the meal is being prepared,” he says.
With two bedrooms, the new owners will also be able to welcome overnight guests in comfort. Equally they would also enjoy the flexibility or arranging the second bedroom as a study area or second sitting room if they chose.
“In warmer weather the new owners of this apartment will also have the option of relaxing outside in the communal gardens, which are sunny and well maintained.”

LOCATION, LOCATION
The city centre is just a short walk from Arlington House. Here the new owners of the property will enjoy easy access to an array of high street stores, independent shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.
The M1’s Junction 27 is about a 20 minute drive from the house, making most of the East Midlands cities within easy reach and there are also plenty of places to visit in the area, including nearby Newstead Abbey and Sherwood Forest.
“This really is a great location for a home and is favoured by many international sportspeople, as well as others who like to be within reach of the city centre and yet able to travel easily too,” he adds. “Anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits can drive out to the countryside quickly from here and those who regularly spend time abroad will find this is an ideal ‘lock up and leave’ apartment.”

Setting the scene

Arlington House is located within Nottingham’s Park Estate and is set back from the road within its own grounds.
The large house, which now comprises several apartments, has well maintained, communal gardens, which are shared by the residents and where they can sit out in the sunshine and enjoy the tranquillity.
There is electric gated access into the secure allocated parking area.
