Park House is a stunning Georgian country house which is believed to date back to the late 17th century and was home to Lady Eden, mother of the former Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden. With an adjoining cottage annexe, a range of outbuildings and set in around 28 acres of private landscaped gardens and parkland.
The property is extensive and comprises a spacious and comfortable 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom family home; with an adjoining 2 bedroomed cottage; and gym/games rooms; all built around a pretty walled courtyard. There are stunning views from the terrace to the pond and woods, the wooded gardens which surround the property, offer easy-to maintain spaces; with a separate summer house and walled garden. It offers potential as a sizeable home with separate living accommodation for relatives, guests or staff; and/or the opportunity to live and work from home, with the gym/games rooms being easily adaptable to workspaces.
The main house has been beautifully maintained, in a style which effortlessly mixes traditional features such as original fireplaces, with modern additions such as the double-height lounge/entertaining area which boasts a mezzanine study and glass staircase.
A further snug is used currently as a lounge/family room with an adjoining study/library off the entrance hall.
The recently fitted kitchen offers a great room for family/social dining with an impressive 6-seater island, Aga and additional electric cooking appliances. The real gem is the original walk-in pantry with hob, sink, dishwasher, fridge and storage; allowing staff or family cooking to be prepared out-of-sight of the main kitchen.
The utility and downstairs WC are conveniently situated off the kitchen near to the entrance to the courtyard.
The 4 bedrooms are all generous sizes and each has their own bathroom (3 en-suite).
The attached Cottage adjoins the main house but is entirely independent and offers charming accommodation over 2 floors including a reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and ground floor bedroom and a bathroom. To the first floor is a spacious bedroom with wardrobes and a further double bedroom.
The 10 acre woodland included in the sale, provides total privacy, yet the location is less than 4 minutes from the local town of Woodham, which has a popular Golf Club, shops and schools.
