Main Description
The original part of this charming home is believed to date back to 1692, and it is understood the house had a rear extension in the mid 1800's. The first reference to The Park (Park House) appears in a manor court record of 1735 when William Lutwyche of Lutwyche Hall acquired a large amount of property in Church Stretton. In 1861, by which time it was known as Park House, it had become a girls' boarding school and by 1885 the house was occupied by A E Demetre de Stourdza Zrinyi who was an Austrian army officer, tradition has it that he was exiled from Austria for taking part in a dual and came to England where he eventually became naturalised. The property provides a wealth of history and has been well cared for and enjoyed by the current owners during their occupation, having not been on the open market for almost a quarter of a century. The house provides well-presented, character accommodation which briefly comprises; porch, sitting room, living room, kitchen, rear hall, cloakroom, cellar, four bedrooms (master bedroom with en-suite) and a family bathroom. The house is complemented by particularly attractive walled gardens, which have been thoughtfully planned and maintained by the current owners creating a marvellous space to enjoy the outside including lawns, well-stocked beds, paved areas ideal for al fresco dining and a vegetable garden. There are a range of useful timber outbuildings including a summer house and garden store as well as the detached single garage with an electrically operated door. Properties like this don't come to the market often and buyers are encouraged to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
