Park Farm is a barn conversion, likely to have been converted in the 1990s and is Grade II Listed in view of the adjoining Listed farmhouse, which is believed to date circa 1850s.
The property is ideal for those with an equestrian interest, having stabling, two paddocks and a manège, but would equally suit those looking for a spacious and beautifully presented family home, with amenity land and privacy.
The front door opened into a welcoming hall with light engineered oak flooring, which runs throughout much of the ground floor.
The hub of the house is a beautifully presented breakfast kitchen, fitted with a high-quality range of hand-painted shaker style cabinets, along with central island, all under quartz worksurfaces. The focal point of the kitchen is a Rangemaster range oven, within a recess with extractor hood. Further appliances include an integral fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility room with plumbing for laundry appliances and a separate cloakroom with WC.
A spacious and light-filled lounge enjoys exposed king beams and a wood-burning stove within a brick lined recess with oak bressummer. Adjoining the lounge is a well-proportioned dining room with easterly views through French doors to the formal gardens. An additional sitting room features a wood-burning stove within an inglenook fireplace with York stone hearth. Occupying the northern end of the property is a useful luxurious ground floor bedroom with a beautifully re-fitted and contemporary en suite bathroom.
To the first floor is a noteworthy principal bedroom, featuring a lavish en suite bathroom with twin-ended bath, a sit-on-top bowl basin on a contemporary vanity unit, with illuminated mirror above, an enclosed cistern WC and heated towel radiator. There is also a walk-in dressing room with a bespoke range of fitted wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms, all having fitted wardrobes and a luxurious and contemporary family bathroom.
Park Farm is approached through a gated entrance, onto a sweeping Cotswold buff gravel laid driveway, leading to the courtyard to the front of the house. There is an additional tarmacadam driveway and a concrete bay, ideal for a carport or garage, subject to any consents required.
The formal lawned gardens sit to the east of the house, predominantly lawned with well stocked borders, and a path leads down to a substantial garden building, currently being used as a gym, with an adjoining covered patio, featuring a Spa hot tub (available by separate negotiations).
The equestrian facilities include two small paddocks, enclosed by post and rail fencing, one having a water supply. There is also a 31 m x 17 m sand and synthetic fibre manège with floodlighting, a timber-built stable block with two loose boxes and a tack/feed room, and an additional timber-built building ideal as a hay store with adjoining general store. The property extends to approximately 0.92 of an acre, in total. The stables benefit from lighting, power points and a cold-water supply.
