*CLOSING DATE - 12 NOON FRIDAY 26TH OF FEBRUARY* A pretty traditional home with land in an accessible location
West Lodge was formerly the school for St Martins. Dating from the early 1800s and with several later extensions it is one of the prettiest houses in the village. West Lodge has been carefully maintained and sympathetically improved over the years and its interior is versatile and characterful. The kitchen with its Redfyre range cooker has been fitted with contemporary units and has space for a family dining table. An exterior door from the kitchen opens to a sheltered terrace at the front of the house. Beside the kitchen is the utility/boot room which is a well-used room with plenty of storage including a gun cabinet, a clothes pulley, access to a larder and plenty of space for boots and coats beside the back door. Both the sitting room and the sun room at West Lodge have fabulous views over the garden, while the office/family room is a cosier informal sitting room. The dining room is one of the loveliest rooms in the house. It is situated beside the kitchen and with space for a large dining table it is ideal for entertaining. There are wood burning stoves in the sitting room, family room/office and also in the dining room.
West Lodge has three double bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the ground floor beside a bathroom. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms. Every bedroom has excellent built in storage.
The garden at West Lodge extends to about 1.5 acres and is largely enclosed by beech hedging and an attractive stone wall. Mature trees and shrubs are dotted around the garden and herbaceous beds are planted nearer the house. There is a choice of sheltered spots to sit out in good weather as well as a vegetable garden with raised beds, a meadow and a chicken run.
West Lodge comes with adjoining land that amounts to approximately 10 acres and consists of a field which is bordered in part by woodland and the St Martin's Burn. The arable field (about 8.4 acres) would be ideal for buyers with horses or hobby livestock. Double gates on the roadside beside the house enable easy vehicular access to the field if required.
