Full Details

Park House is a substantial, Grade 2 listed, country house that stands proudly in the centre of Addington. It is full of period features and boasts grand proportions akin to a large manor house
and front and rear gardens amounting to three quarters of an acre.

Addington Manor was mentioned in the Domesday Book and, although not as it is today, we know that there was a small manor on this site. During the late nineteenth century, a new house was built nearby named Addington Manor and the then manor was renamed The Dower House.

Since divided, the current accommodation is the middle part of the original house and has nearly 3500 sq ft arranged over two floors as well as two cellars and the benefit of a single garage.

It is approached by a sweeping gravel drive and front lawn and there is space for several cars to park very close to the entrance.

Stone steps lead up to a double door opening on to a grand entrance hallway which gives an immediate sense of grandeur with high ceilings and framed archway with the staircase to the left and view of the drawing room beyond. This full width living room has palatial proportions with Tudor panelling surrounding the fireplace to one end and windows and doors leading on to the garden. It is a perfect room for entertaining on a large scale or for family living.

To the front of the house there is a separate dining room leading on to a kitchen breakfast room.

There is a utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor off the hallway.

The stairs from the hallway lead up to a spacious first floor landing and off this there are five double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a dressing room and its own bathroom and there is a further family shower room.

The living accommodation would benefit from some modernisation to create a fine home combining updated fittings and layout with historic splendour.

Going outside from the drawing room there are steps down onto a paved area which leads to the large lawned garden which is L-shaped and backs onto fields. There are steps leading down to two cellars which are good for storage with generous head height or a possible workshop.

The small but beautiful hamlet of Addington itself has a very private feel and is approached by a sweeping road past an equestrian centre that is hedged on either side and has an air of exclusivity.

There is a view of the St Mary The Virgin Church as you drive in and from the front of the house.

A viewing is essential to appreciate the scale and setting of this charming house.
