THE STORY

SITUATED AT THE HEART OF NOTTINGHAM'S SOUGHT-AFTER PARK, CEDAR HOUSE IS A MAGNIFICENT TRIBUTE TO THE AREA'S GRACIOUS PAST BUT HAS ALSO BEEN BEAUTIFULLY MODERNISED

With its imposing exterior, Cedar House makes quite a statement from the outside - and, upon stepping through the door, visitors find its grandeur continues. Dating back to the late 19th century, the impressive, three-storey house has been beautifully and carefully renovated by its current owners and is now ready to be enjoyed in all its
splendour. "We have owned and loved it for over 20 years now," one of them explains. "When our children grew up, however, we chose to have it refurbished. Family circumstances changed and we have decided not to move back in so the next owners will benefit from the fact that everything is new and unused." As the owners had intended to move back in themselves, all the work has been carried out to a high quality and with great attention to detail. "The house has been newly decorated with Farrow & Ball paints; there are five bathrooms, all of which are new with the exception of the Art Deco bathroom, which has been painstakingly restored," he adds.

A PRESTIGIOUS PAST

The Park estate is a 150-acre private residential area to the west of the centre of the city and was built in the former deer park at Nottingham Castle. The first domestic building here was constructed opposite the castle gatehouse in 1809; major development began in the 1820s under the fourth Duke of Newcastle and continued under the fifth Duke. Today, The Park retains much of its original character, including its original gas lighting network, which is believed to be one of the largest in Europe. "By 1887 some 400 houses had been built and from then on it became an exclusive and prestigious place to live," he says. "Nottingham Castle can be seen from some parts of our house."

A PLACE IN HISTORY

Cedar House still retains a sense of its past. "When we first moved in, we found a document in a kitchen cupboard, which is an original indenture, dated 1877 and relates to the land the house is built on. Henry Pelham, the Duke of Newcastle, is mentioned. We have had this framed and will leave it as it is such an important part of its history." The owners were drawn to the ambience in the house. "We liked the fact all the rooms in the house were light and bright, which is unusual for a period property. Even on a grey day, the house feels sunny and bright," he adds.

SPACIOUS LIVING

The ground floor of the bay-fronted property comprises the hallway, dining room study, kitchen breakfast room and capacious drawing room. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor, where there another kitchen and a games room. There are four large bedrooms, four shower rooms, a family bathroom and a cloakroom which can be found on the top floor. "Two bedrooms have been fitted with en suite bathrooms, which include shower cabins that are also steam cubicles, with back massage, radio and telephone etc."

FAMILY HOME

Many original features have been kept, such as coving, but the house incorporates features for modern day living: there is, for example, internet available at each power point throughout the property. Cedar House is very versatile and is ideal for a growing family, he suggests. "The basement floor makes a good place for teenagers to chill out and have their own space. On the other hand, the house could also be perfect for couples who like to entertain: the drawing room is large and opens up on to an outdoor entertaining space; the wine cellar and snooker room make entertaining even more fun."

READY AND WAITING

The property was originally named Cedar Lodge, as there were once cedar trees in this corner of The Park. "Being here is like living in a quiet village in the centre of a city, with the benefits of both," the owner observes. "There is a great community spirit and numerous social events throughout the year. On the other hand the property is close to the centre of Nottingham, with its top quality restaurants, theatres, shops, cinemas and history. We have enjoyed being near the hustle and bustle but also within the relaxing and peaceful environment of The Park." He says there is still scope for new owners to put their own stamp on the property. "Adjoining the house is a room which could be easily converted into a hobby or craft room; gym; cinema room or work space," he points out. "Cedar House is, however, also ready for someone to move into immediately and make it their home without having to worry about anything at all."

SETTING THE SCENE

The garden was landscaped to a very high standard with the emphasis on easy upkeep and outdoor living in mind, says the current owner. “The whole rear garden gets sun from dawn to dusk, which makes the house very light, as well as ensuring that relaxing outside on a summer’s evening is very pleasant. There is a maintenance-free lawn area; barbecue and two substantial seating areas, as well as a water fountain and ornamental trees for privacy. There is a driveway to the side of the property providing off-road parking.

WITHIN EASY REACH

A number of supermarkets, both Waitrose and Sainsbury can be found a short distance from the property.
