Langford Road, Langford - 6 bedroom detached family home with outbuildings

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
With parts dating back to the 18th century, Park Cottage has been the subject of a careful programme of refurbishment and extension by the current owners, to create a substantial family home over 3 storeys with flexible accommodation to suit a variety of needs. Characterised by sash windows, neutral décor and clean, neat lines throughout, period features combine harmoniously with modern style and convenience.

Park Cottage is believed to have originally been the Langford Estate Manager's cottage, with subsequent extension and reconfiguration (both historical and more recently) into a well proportioned family home.

The house is accessed via an entrance hall running across the front of the house, with a smart wooden floor and a stylish contemporary cloakroom with shower to one side. The living accommodation is arranged off the hallway, to the left is a a spacious dual aspect sitting room/office with views through the 2 sash windows. Part-glazed double doors open into the charming music room, which also has sash windows, a beautiful polished wooden floor and a feature fireplace.

The accommodation becomes more contemporary towards the rear of the house, with glazed double doors opening into the superb family room situated between the dining room and kitchen. The generous proportions of the open plan layout give a great deal of flexibility to suit a variety of needs, and the beautiful warm tones of the stone floor running across this section of the house give a good sense of flow.

The spacious dining room accommodates a large table and enjoys wonderful views through wide wooden bi-fold doors opening onto the superb enclosed walled gardens beyond.

Another highlight of Park Cottage is the superb kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with an extensive range of oak base and wall units (including deep pan and crockery drawers, some carousel units and a pull-out pantry cupboard) topped with granite work surfaces. There is space for an American-style fridge/freezer, 2 dishwashers and a large range gas cooker: the large central island incorporates a sink and 2 fridges and provides a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the surroundings, which can be further enhanced using the remote-controlled lighting effects to suit the mood. There is a useful back door off the kitchen, and a well fitted utility room, also with direct garden access and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The beautifully presented bedroom accommodation is arranged on the first and second floors, with 2 good sized double bedrooms on the top floor flanking a contemporary bathroom. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms to the front of the house, one of which would make a good nursery or perhaps an office for working from home, and a stylish family bathroom with separate shower. The luxurious principal bedroom suite is situated to the rear of the house, with wonderful views over the garden beyond from the Juliet balcony in the large dual aspect bedroom. The generous dressing room off the bedroom has fitted wardrobes to either side and double doors open into the stylish contemporary bathroom with large shower enclosure and bath.

Outside - To the right side of Park Cottage electrically operated wooden gates open onto a large gravelled parking area, beyond which is the garage. There is a large additional outbuilding, currently used as a workshop, which along with the garage, subject to the necessary permissions, provides scope for development if required.

The gardens at Park Cottage are beautifully arranged into various sections and do offer further scope for the keenest gardener. Near the front door, tucked behind a stone boundary wall is an attractive gravelled courtyard garden area with a flagstone path: to the left side of the house, to the rear of the music room, is an enclosed courtyard garden with a greenhouse and a raised vegetable bed. The large, enclosed walled rear garden is another charming highlight of the property, laid mainly to lawn bordered by attractive stone walls, with established borders with shrubs, bushes and trees including beautiful camellias and a superb magnolia. A circular paved and gravelled seating area provides a wonderful place for alfresco dining or to simply sit and enjoy the surroundings, and a metal gate in the wall provides views of (but not access to) the field to the rear.
