Attractive former lodge.
East Lodge is a Grade II Listed former lodge, which was tastefully extended, but retaining many of its original Victorian features to create a charming country house with rural views from its windows. The accommodation is immaculately presented and versatile with the option of creating a further bedroom on the ground floor if required. An attractive glazed Entrance Porch opens to the Hall and from there into a charming Sitting Room with an open fireplace. Next to the sitting room is the impressive Dining Room with original wood flooring and Victorian grate with convenient access to the large Kitchen / Breakfast Room with its John Lewis of Hungerford fitted units and Britannia electric / gas range. The Study / Bedroom four, from Dining Room, was originally designed as a bedroom with direct access to the well-equipped, spacious Victorian style Bathroom / Shower Room with its rolltop and claw feet bath, high level w.c. and large, enclosed shower. The Hallway leads through to a lovely drawing room on the south-east side of the house with views out to countryside and the gardens than can be accessed through opening French doors. On the first floor, Principal Bedroom and Bedroom 2 each with fitted wardrobes and views over fields and garden. The adjacent bathroom with bath and shower over also has a large, fitted airing cupboard. Bedroom 3 on the ground floor also has pleasant garden views and a fitted wardrobe.
East Lodge is accessed from the quiet lane (Newbury Hill) over a paved drive, through wrought iron gates with impressive acorn capped pillars. A gravelled parking area is to the right of the double garage, which has boarded loft space and inspection pit. The gardens lie in two principal areas, adjacent to the house and to the east of the Garage and Stable block, which comprises two loose boxes and Tool Store. The gardens are beautifully landscaped into compartments with plenty of seating areas. The lawned areas are shaded by fruit and other trees with herbaceous borders of flowers and shrubs. A raised patio area at the eastern end of the gardens features a Summer House which is positioned to take full advantage of the sunset and outstanding rural views.
