An exceptional 15th century farmhouse on the edge of the village with far reaching views
Dating from the 15th century, New Park House is finished in a cream render under a pitched clay peg tile roof. Internally, the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with six comfortable bedrooms on the first floor.
The house has clearly evolved over the years and has been comprehensively modernised by the current owners whilst retaining many of the features that make a house of this age so special. Of particular note is the drawing room with wonderful high ceilings and centred on an attractive open fireplace. French doors open onto the south-west facing terrace and provide remarkable views over The Great Wood. The kitchen has been extensively remodelled by Devol and Sebastian Cox with a range of base units under a granite work surface and a twin oven Aga.
The gardens and grounds create a mature and secluded setting, laid mostly to lawn with a selection of specimen trees including a magnificent wellingtonia, oak, lime and scots pine.
There is an extensive range of outbuildings including the home office, pool house and games room a stable and a garage.
This property has 1.63 acres of land.
