A beautifully presented five bedroom house in a secluded position on the edge of Whiteparish.
Originally constructed in the 1970s, Ash Lodge retains much of its original style and quality and has been well maintained throughout. The current owners have undertaken a comprehensive refurbishment programme, to provide a modern day family house in very good order. Works include reconfiguring the kitchen and connecting it with the dining room, replacing the boiler and heating system, upgrading all bathrooms and the conservatory, which now also provides an excellent home office space.
Ash Lodge represents a classical design and stylish finish, with an excellent flow between the rooms on the ground and first floor, with just over 2,800sqft of accommodation. The reception hall leads to all main rooms on the ground floor. The kitchen is fitted with shaker-style units, a central island with breakfast bar, and space for a range cooker. It has French windows leading on to the south facing terrace and gardens. Interlinking doors open to the dining room, with panelled walls and a further set of doors on to the terrace. The family room has an attractive bay with French windows to the terrace and an open fireplace. The dual aspect sitting room also has an open fire and spans the width of the house, leading further to the conservatory, which is currently fitted out and used as a home office. An external door provides separate access from the side of the house.
Upstairs, the sumptuous principal bedroom has been cleverly laid out to provide a dressing area to one end, with an en suite bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. Four further double bedrooms share the family bathroom, recently upgraded.
Ash Lodge is approached via Dean Lane and is set well back, with a driveway leading down to the double garage and parking area. There is a swathe of lawn to the front of the house, interspersed with some magnificent specimen trees including a Copper Beech. Access to the rear garden is on both sides of the house, with a side gate leading to the stone-flagged terrace, which spans the back of the house and garage, providing a lovely place to enjoy the south-facing views of the garden. There is a greenhouse with kitchen garden. Steps lead down from the terrace to the main gardens which are lawned, with areas of orchard and interspersed with mature trees, including a block of woodland at the lower end of the property.

Ash Lodge is a brilliant family house which you can move straight into and enjoy. The garden feels huge and runs away from the house to the woodland at the bottom which is great fun and offers lots of space to enjoy.James McKillopProperty agent
