Unexpectedly back On Market *Quick Sale Required * VIDEO TOUR * PARK FARM COTTAGE, thought to be late Georgian or early Victorian, was originally built as farm workers‘ cottage, situated next to Theobald‘s Manor. It sits on a unique private estate, which was once the hunting ground of King James I. The cottage is full of charm and character and offers easy access to footpaths and bridle ways whilst being close to shops, pubs and transport links.

A true ‘Chocolate Box‘ cottage, the house has been sympathetically restored and extended by the current owners over the last 20+ years. Combining the best of old and new, they have created a lovely family home with spacious and well connected living areas, ideal for both formal and informal entertaining.

Recent extensions sit nicely with the original house being reclaimed stock bricks and roof tiles with part white timber cladding facade and small pane glazed windows. The original roof was replaced c. 12 years ago. At the side of the property there is access via a shingle driveway to a large parking area and TRIPLE GARAGE.

The front door opens into a tiled Entrance Area, which forms part of a light and spacious CONSERVATORY with views over the rear garden and beyond. Built in 2018, this lovely room includes French Doors onto Patio, electric under floor heating, radiators, new air conditioning unit , low energy recessed lighting, USB ports, custom built bookcase/shelving, high spec insulated roofing and double glazed windows. This leads through to a CLOAKROOM with storage and shelving; and a UTILITY AREA with sink and taps, space for washing machine and tumble dryer, large freezer and small freezer under worktop, and Worcester Bosch oil fired central heating boiler with radio (mobile) thermostat. A good-sized KITCHEN which includes room for a breakfast table at one end, the original kitchen was brought bang up-to-date several years ago with new Shaker style units, granite effect worktops, Karndean flooring, recessed LED lighting, waste disposal unit and plumbing for a dishwasher. Modern features in a traditional style which suits the period of the house.

Wooden French Doors lead from the CONSERVATORY through to the LOUNGE with vaulted timber ceiling and exposed beams with double-glazed windows to side elevation. This room, which was built in 1999, has wall mounted brass lamps marked ‘GWR‘ and TV and Satellite dish points. A doorway leads through to the SNUG/DINING ROOM centered around a ‘Villager‘ wood burning stove with water jacket plumbed into central heating system, rustic timber mantel shelf, recently fitted chimney liner, arched recess display alcoves and fitted book shelves. Window to front elevation and Telephone and High-Speed Fiber Optic Broadband connections.

Stairs to the first floor lead to a landing off which are BEDROOMS 2 AND 3 and a delightful FAMILY BATHROOM with Heated Towel Rail. BEDROOM 2 offers views to countryside at the front of property and BEDROOM 3 includes a large walk-in closet/storage cupboard with shelves and hanging rail. A short flight of steps leads into the newly built (2017) MASTER BEDROOM. The vaulted ceilings, small paned double-glazed windows and French Doors with Juliet Balcony, reflect the character of the original cottage whilst incorporating mod cons such as bedside USB ports. The ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM has electric under floor heating , heated towel rail (central heating and electric), waterfall shower and Victorian style basin and taps.


The property occupies a rural site and is not directly overlooked. Access to the property is via a private estate road and is restricted by electronic gates. There is a good sized garden (property itself comprises approximately 1/3 acre), which is mainly laid to lawn with established trees, flower beds and well stocked borders with a gravel garden area adjacent to a large Indian Sandstone patio (recently laid). A shingle driveway to the side of the cottage provides ample parking for several vehicles.
