Park House is a charming detached Victorian property offering a surprisingly generous level of accommodation. The property is constructed with soft red brick elevations under a pretty tiled roof and benefits from a range of out-buildings. The property is set discreetly back from the road, with off-road parking, and affords views across the entrance of Kentwell Hall and the attractive street scene. The gardens are a fine attribute of the property and offer an abundance of plantings and lawned areas. We believe that the property may benefit from some updating and remedial works but nether the less this is a rare chance to acquire such a delightful home and a viewing of the property is highly recommended and is strictly by appointment only.

Accommodation
The accommodation, in brief, comprises tiled covered porch leading to wooden front door; this in turn gives access to the property. The sitting room (13'8" x 12'1"), a pleasant room with windows to both front and side aspect, features a brick fireplace with brick hearth and inset stove. A stripped wooden door gives access to the inner-hallway. The dining room (12'1" x 10'4") is also positioned to the front of the property with the exposed wooden floorboards and multi-fuel burner enhancing the character of the room even further. A door leads to the attractive side patio terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of lightly coloured floor and wall units finished with a wood effect work-surface and complimented by tiled flooring and a butlers sink. The oven and gas hob is built into the brick fireplace with a useful storage cupboard to one side. Doors off to both inner hall and to the wonderful garden room. The garden room (23'9" x 7'8") affords beautiful views across the rear garden and with French doors leading to this. The utility room is positioned discreetly off from this and provides plumbing for washing machine, a useful sink and drainer and houses the wall mounted gas boiler. To complete the ground floor accommodation is the cloakroom fitted with low level wc and wash hand basin.

The turning staircase gives access to the first floor landing with rooms off from this and to the large walk-in airing cupboard. The study (5'4" x 4'11") is a light and bright room to the rear of the property and benefits from a fitted shelf. The master bedroom (12'4" x 12'1") enjoys a large window to the front aspect and a part vaulted ceiling. A personal door leads to the generous and versatile dressing room, which could also be used as a nursery or an additional study. A further cupboard in the dressing room provides additional storage space. The second bedroom (10'6" x 8'10") overlooks the rear garden. The bathroom is an attractive room with a part vaulted ceiling and fitted with a white suite comprising panelled bath with shower attachment, low level wc and wash hand basin. A second door is conveniently positioned to give access to the master bedroom.


Outside
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway which provides off road parking. A hedge screens the property from the road and a wooden gate gives access to the rear garden. The rear cottage garden is a pure delight and is well-designed with feature flower beds and lawned areas. A central path leads down the garden and to the garden shed. A excellent range of outbuildings can be found to one side of the garden. These offer an ideal opportunity to be converted into a studio, annex etc. (subject to any necessary planning or building regulations). The private side terrace is an ideal area for outdoor eating and entertaining. The garden is fully enclosed with a mixture of attractive brick walls and fencing.
