Farmhouse with countryside views, equestrian facilities and a two bedroom annexe. In excess of 12 acres in all.
Lodge Hill Farm is a detached period house of character and believed to date back to about 1740. The property is a charming and spacious family home which retains period features throughout including exposed timbers and brickwork. The house occupies a lovely rural country lane setting with stunning far reaching countryside views and sits in its own grounds in excess of 12 acres, with the added benefit of a spacious two bedroom annexe, stabling and an outdoor manège. The property also benefits from a generator.
A covered porch opens into the reception hall with flagstone flooring, a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. The pretty sitting rooms extends the depth of the house and features an attractive inglenook fireplace with a multi-fuel burner. French doors open on to the garden and the room has built in storage cupboards and shelving. On the other side of the hall is a study/family room with a fireplace and views to the front. The dining room lies to the rear, with ceiling beams, a decorative fireplace, built in storage and display cabinets. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a good range of country style units. Integrated appliances include a Rayburn, five ring gas hob, extractor, double oven, microwave and a dishwasher. The room is dual aspect and has plenty of room for a table. Just off the kitchen lies a cloakroom and door giving access to the garden, together with a good sized utility room with storage and space for appliances.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, all with decorative fireplaces. The principal bedroom lies to the front with wonderful far reaching views. There is a fully fitted dressing room and a well appointed en suite bathroom with a separate shower. There are four further bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and served by two family bath/shower rooms.
Lodge Hill Farm is approached off a country lane through an electric five bar gate onto a long driveway with parking at the front of the house for several vehicles, together with a detached garage with a store room/wine cellar to the rear. Adjacent to the main house is a stable, currently used for storage, and a spacious semi-detached annexe, open plan on the ground floor with a kitchen area and shower room. On the first floor are two bedrooms, both with generous eaves storage.
The garden and grounds are superb and in excess of 12 acres. The rear garden is arranged over two levels, predominately laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and well stocked mature flower beds. A raised terrace area provides wonderful rural views and a perfect space for outside entertaining. The remainder of the land comprises fenced paddocks, woodland and a copse, together with a stable yard with three stables, a feed store and tack room with water, light and power. Adjacent to the stable block is a 20m x 40m outdoor manège.
