General Description
Down Park is a substantially built, early 20th century country house, which has been extended and improved, with its showpiece gardens which reflect the maturity of the house. Both inside and out, the house reflects the style of the era with its solid construction, with opening casement windows (mostly with secondary double glazing), period fireplace in the drawing room, parquet flooring, elegant staircase and joinery and exterior detailing. The original house has been extended with single storey additions at each end, currently used as spacious reception rooms, but one of them has a connecting shower room, making it suitable for a downstairs bedroom.
The stone flanked entrance splay leads enticingly up from the lane, to a tarmac parking and turning area beside the house. The drive is flanked by neatly mown lawns, well stocked with flowering shrubs and ornamental trees. There is an area of kitchen garden behind a hedge and pathways round the beautiful grounds show off lawns, herbaceous borders, an abundance of ornamental shrubs, terraces outside the house and lead away to the magnificent spreading oak tree at the bottom of the garden. To one side of the house, leading out from the dining room and drawing room, there is another paved terrace protected by hedges. There is an attached double garage with up and over doors.

Services
Mains electricity, oil central heating, mains water, drainage to septic tank, broadband.
