Description

Park Cottage is an early twentieth century deceptively spacious and light house with taller than expected ceilings and extensive large double glazed windows. The accommodation is well balanced with four reception rooms and areas which are ideal for entertaining both in the Winter and the Summer as well as enabling different hobbies and activities to be enjoyed simultaneously. The layout is further enhanced by two staircases at either end of the house, ideal for guests and children alike.
Originally constructed as two cottages in the 1920’s they were combined and extended into a single house probably in the early 1980’s with many of the original features retained. At the heart of the property is a wonderful central dining room, with the original built-in cooking range, leading onto the other main rooms: a triple aspect kitchen/sun room; main drawing room and office/study.
The modern kitchen has ample oak-fronted cabinets and cupboards, a gas/electric range and stripped timber floor. Steps lead down into the tiled floor sun room with its attractive large bay window with delightful views down a flowered bordered pebbled path to a wonderful rose clad pergola, floor to ceiling double glazed doors with windows above overlooking, and leading onto via a stone terrace, and the glorious gardens. The main drawing room, accessed via glazed double doors, offers generous proportions with a large central fireplace housing a woodburner. A further glazed door accesses the bright and airy study/office overlooking the delightful courtyard and its central water feature. Also on the ground floor is a useful cloakroom and generous utility room.
The first floor accommodation is accessed by two sets of stairs: one from the drawing room and the other just off the dining room. The staircases lead to a long gallery style landing with extensive views over the adjacent countryside. At one end of the landing is the fabulous principal bedroom suite with integral wardrobes and a beautiful, well-

Outside

Set behind a tall beech hedge offering total privacy,
the property is approached via a private, gated gravel drive, which runs alongside the house and leads to a large area of parking with scope to erect garaging subject to the usual consents. This welcoming home stands within generous gardens and grounds which extend to just over half an acre and have been thoughtfully landscaped to make the most of the backdrop and are incredibly private.
Specimen trees along with shrubs and roses accompany seasonal bulbs providing a variety of colour and scent throughout the calendar year. In addition there is a well-designed and planted courtyard with a terraced water feature at its heart. This is a real sun trap and there is ample space for al fresco dining in the warmer months with a brick built veranda, lockable storage area and pergola providing shade. The veranda also has power and water making it an ideal entertaining area.
