Park Corner House is Grade II listed with elements dating back earlier than the 1700s; it has been altered over the centuries, including some Victorian additions, to become the house as it stands today. The property is accessed via a side gate on Park Street. There are two partly glazed traditional doors leading between the patio and kitchen, one of which is used as the main entrance to the house. The kitchen has been finished to a high standard with oak worktops, painted wooden units, a Belfast style sink, space for a range cooker and a tiled terracotta floor which continues through to the vaulted dining area. Plenty of natural light floods the room through wooden framed windows. The kitchen also houses a large utility cupboard with electricity and a laddered ceiling hatch leads to a boarded loft area.
A solid wooden door with feature hinges leads through from the kitchen/diner to a sitting room with oak flooring and an open fire place finished with a Bath stone surround. The stairs at the back of the room lead up to a galleried landing and window with deep sill which could create a lovely window seat.
The first floor of Park Corner House provides flexible living accommodation. The current owners have these rooms set up to provide a second reception room/study, two double bedrooms, and a large family bathroom which has been recently refitted and finished to a very high standard. All of the bedrooms at Park Corner House are doubles, and feature exposed beams, some of which also show original ironwork detailing. There are a number of quirky alcoves and recesses throughout the property creating useful additional storage.
As the stairs curve around to the top floor there is a boarded loft area, accessed via a hatch in the wall. The top floor provides two particularly spacious double bedrooms, both with dual aspect views, and a shower room to service them. One of these bedrooms has a large reception room which, subject to planning permission, could house an en-suite bathroom.
The dining area has a door opening on to a courtyard patio area, ideal for alfresco dining. Beyond this patio there are steps up to a raised area of grass with shrub borders. The whole garden is enclosed by a Cotswold dry stone wall making it both very private and sheltered. At the back of the grassed area there is a useful garden shed.
