Property Description

Parsons Paddock is an impressive single-storey bright and airy detached home that was constructed some 45 years ago by our current owners’ father, and then further extended to include a magnificent large kitchen and sun-room/conservatory with stunning views over the rolling countryside and Butcombe Parish Church.

The property is set behind a traditional five-bar gate and stone wall, and to the front of the property there is a generous driveway which is flanked by a 2-storey stone coach house to one side and a double garage and office to the other, both offering huge potential (subject to the necessary consents). 

Entering the hallway you will find a smart teak parquet floor, a feature that continues through a number of rooms. To the left of the hallway a door leads you into a light-filled dual aspect sitting room which features an impressive stone fireplace with a cast iron wood burner. To the side of the room, sliding patio doors lead out to a wonderfully positioned sun terrace. Internal double doors with pretty stained glass windows above lead through to a separate dining room, which in turn continues into a beautifully positioned sun room/conservatory, which looks out over the rear and side gardens, with glimpses of stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The kitchen/breakfast room is central to the rear of the house and measures an impressive 25'0 in length with a superb dual aspect and interconnecting door to the sun room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of beautiful hand-crafted and bespoke teak and mahogany farmhouse-style units and four-oven Raeburn cooker, a separate integrated electric cooker and induction hob and provision for further white goods. There are feature beams to the ceiling, tiled splashbacks, and a practical tiled floor. As with the sun room, the outlook from the kitchen is simply stunning, and from the dual aspect windows you can enjoy the beautiful flower-filled garden and rural scenery beyond. 

Alongside the kitchen is a versatile and good sized room that could either be utilised as a second living/sitting room or a fourth bedroom, the three remaining bedrooms are all generous double rooms with all three benefitting from fitted wardrobe and views into the gardens. The main bedroom also features an en-suite shower room, whilst the other bedrooms share use of a large family bathroom with a four piece suite and potential to modernise.

Completing the internal accommodation is a handy study which is perfect for a home office/craft room or an occasional single bedroom if desired. There is a large loft with plenty of space for storage, and a cloak room and store cupboard off the hallway.

Outside, the property truly comes into its own, with a plethora of trees, flowers and herbaceous borders that fully surround the property. Matured and nurtured over recent decades, you will find many established trees including walnut, horse chestnut, apricot, cherry, tulip, eucalyptus and oak, to name just a few, along with an section of orchard including bramley, russet and cox's apple trees, greengage, damson, mulberry and pear. There are several productive fruit and vegetable beds, two magnificent spring-fed natural ponds, and many vibrant flower, herb and prairie plant beds disbursed throughout the garden.

Within the garden you will also find a number of thoughtfully positioned and calming seating areas from which to enjoy the incredible outlook. A large stone terrace with huge ornamental pond and statues sits to the rear of the house and provides the perfect space for alfresco dining and hosting visiting guests and a second terrace to the side of the house links through to the sitting room with a path leading to the front garden, and a shaded area populated with acers and expansive flower-filled borders. Located at the rear of the garden you will discover a large wooden summer house sitting in the shade of a weeping willow tree by the little stream.

To the front of the property, the two spacious outbuildings offer huge potential for a separate dwelling (subject to the necessary consents) for a dependent relative, Air B & B or even work-from-home business premises. The double garage has a spacious wood-panelled office to one side, whilst the coach house is two stories and currently houses the property’s oil tank and logs for the fireplace.

WE HAVE NOTICED. Properties like Parsons Paddock really don't come to the market that often, and built by our own sellers’ father some 45 years ago to an exact specification, it is spacious, individual and versatile, with the most incredible garden and breathtaking setting with ample opportunity to create your own unique footprint.
