The Property
Entering the property via the reception hallway within the Victorian Wing of this family home, the scale and character that run throughout are instantly apparent. Timber floor boards run the length of the hall whilst our first staircase ascends to the first floor. On our right we find the stunning morning room taking in the easterly sun. An open fireplace provides a focal point to the space whilst full height sash windows fill the room with natural light. At the opposite end of the hall we find our library which mirrors the morning room and looks onto the rear gardens. From the reception hall we follow the hallway past one of the doors to our sitting/dining room and pass the utility room and ground floor bathroom. The head of the hall brings us to both the family room and our kitchen breakfast room where the change in era is immediately obvious yet works seamlessly. The family room at over 28 feet boasts views and french doors that open to the rear gardens. A charming red brick fire place gives home to our wood burner whilst exposed timbers line the space with character. Stepping into the kitchen breakfast room our eye is drawn to the stunning brick floor. A range of farmhouse style kitchen units fill the space and provide ample storage and working areas. A range style cooker finds home in the fireplace whilst space is left for a breakfast table. A door opens to the gardens at one end and we step from here into the charming sitting/dining room. The sitting/dining room really feels like the hub of the home, a most impressive inglenook fireplace offers a stunning focal point to the space as the exposed timber beams truly reveal the history of the house. A second staircase rises to the first floor whilst the inglenook stairs climb both floors to the impressive attic space. From the reception hall we climb the stairs to the impressive galleried landing which leads to the first of our two double bedrooms. Again echoing its Victorian history, both rooms enjoy two floor to ceiling sash windows which over look the grounds. The first of our upper floor bathrooms is accessed from the landing as well as the guest bedroom. An opening leads us back to the original house where we find three further double bedrooms all of which lead from the hallway and enjoy the views to the front of the property. A second bathroom sits at the head of the hall where our stairs that rise from the sitting room ascend to. Completing the accommodation, a door opens to the impressive master suite where we step through the dressing room past the en-suite shower room into the master bedroom. This generous double bedroom is again lined with timbers and enjoys a view to the rear over the grounds.

Outside
From the road we approach Park Farm House via the tree lined drive way that leads to the wrought iron railing and walled boundary of the property. An extensive drive way provides ample off road parking and turning whilst wrapping around the rear of the property giving access to the double garage/workshop and the numerous outbuildings sited at the rear of the house. The front gardens are laid to lawn with established flower beds to the frontage of the house. To the rear the formal gardens again are laid to lawn providing numerous areas to enjoy the views and surroundings. An established pond offers a major focal point to the garden whilst a bridge crosses a dyke giving access to the meadow. The meadow can also be accessed from the driveway and offers a variety of uses. Currently a haven for wildlife and the range of established shrubs and trees in place, this well drained land would provide a superb spot for a small equestrian set up if required.
