Park House was originally home to the esteemed local Symmington family, renowned for their whale bone corsets (the factory now being the council offices in the centre of town), and in 1980 the property was converted into apartments. The imposing façade leads to a spacious communal entrance hall, with immaculately presented and newly decorated Apartment 6 accessed to the right. The apartment provides a neutral scheme throughout and with the tall ceilings gives a superb sense of character and space.
The entrance leads into a hallway area to the fantastic open plan design of the ground floor. The sitting room area boasts a beautiful fireplace and further leads to an ample dining space. There is a seating area to the rear bay which also features French doors leading out the south facing private rear garden. The modern and contemporary kitchen has been partitioned from the other reception areas and includes fitted appliances and granite worktops. There is also a utility room and useful understairs storage cupboard.
Stairs rise to the first floor which provides the main bathroom and two double bedrooms. The principal bedroom also benefits from a concealed ensuite shower room and access to a balcony which captures stunning views over the town and beyond.
Externally the property features two allocated parking spaces and a single garage. The landscaped rear garden has been designed with low maintenance in mind and can be found predominantly paved offering an ideal area for entertaining.
Park House benefits from an elevated position on the north fringes of Market Harborough. This bustling market town providing a wide range of amenities including independent and high street shops and supermarkets, a large number of public houses and restaurants, professional services and sports/leisure facilities.
The property is ideally placed for local state and public schooling, road and rail access to many business centres, and yet within moments of beautiful open countryside. The A14 is close at hand providing fast access east and west and to Junction 19 of the M1, which opens out onto the extensive Midlands motorway network including the M69, M6, M42 and M45, and there is an excellent train service from Market Harborough to London St Pancras International; in under an hour. Outdoor leisure pursuits can be found with walks along the nearby Grand Union Canal.
