Ferndale House is one of Habitat Escapes’ premier properties and a fine example of Lower Mill Estate architecture at its best. Found along Nightingale Walk, where at least 19 pairs of these songbirds nest each year, the house faces south towards Swillbrook Lake and Nature Reserve with exceptional views over Swillbrook. This property is a substantial six bedroom, three storey property with vast living areas both inside and out and offers beautifully decorated interiors.
Inside you will find three double bedrooms, one twin, one bunk and child’s 2’6″ bed (with pull out trundle on request suitable for small child). Every room is a very good size and benefits from two en-suites and two family bathrooms. The kitchen and bathrooms are finished to a very high standard. The living area is the perfect space for large groups of families and friends wishing to spend quality time together or celebrate special occasions.
The front door opens into a specious entrance hall with direct access to the large ground floor rear deck facing south over Swillbrook where you will find a children’s playhouse. There is an under stairs cupboard housing tumble dryer and internet hub.
