61 Hampton Park is a superb family home arranged over four floors with wonderfully versatile accommodation, retained period features and access from two floors to the delightful southerly facing rear garden.

To the front, there is a useful off-street parking space, with two shallow steps leading up to the formal front door and a flight of steps leading down to the lower ground floor kitchen entrance.
From the hall floor entrance, there is a lovely welcoming entrance hall with an arch leading through to the stairwell with a period wooden staircase leading to the upper floors, and a door with steps leading down into to the kitchen.

The room further benefits from a period marble fireplace with an open hearth and beautiful retained ceiling plasterwork.
To the front of the house is a versatile family room / home office or bedroom five if required. These two rooms are linked by a lovely old butlers pantry, complete with a stripped pine dresser.
Over the lower ground floor is a fabulous full-depth open plan family kitchen, dining room and family room. There is independent access from the front (with a small courtyard flanked by two useful storerooms) into an inner porch, opening up into the kitchen area. A hard-wearing terracotta tiled floor covers the floor area, with the kitchen providing plenty of floor and wall mounted storage, as well as 4-ring gas hob and wall mounted oven and grill. In addition there is an integrate dishwasher and a generous peninsular island / breakfast bar.
