Park House is a truly exceptional family property, and was originally part of the Pythouse Estate in Wiltshire, which still owns much of the surrounding land. Dating from the 17th century and listed Grade II the house is built of handsome limestone under a Cedar tile roof, with mullioned windows.

Internal period features are outstanding and include a carved stone fireplace, exposed elm floorboards and solid oak doors. A fine oak staircase leads to the first floor, which has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, and lots of further potential accommodation in the attic, subject to relevant permissions.

Accommodation in total comprises: dining hall, drawing room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, five bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus attic space.

Outside the coach house has potential for a variety of uses and currently comprises three loose boxes, a garage and a log store. The gardens have been much-loved over the years: extensive lawns stretch from the terrace to a brilliantly well-stocked garden with a wide variety of plants and shrubs while the grounds are peppered with mature trees including cedar, oak, beech ash and willow. To the west is an ornamental pond and to the east a paddock with apple and cherry trees.

Park House sits in a secluded position in the hamlet of West Hatch on the edge of the Upper Nadder Valley, with views towards Wardour and the Donheads. Tisbury is just three miles, has excellent amenities and a mainline station to London Waterloo.

The guide price is £1,750,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01722 426 880 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
