An elegant Regency country house situated within beautiful gardens and grounds including a swimming pool, lake and equestrian facilities.
Alscot Lodge is an attractive Grade II listed regency house, situated within a conservation area with attractive gardens and grounds extending to just over five acres including a double garage, swimming pool, lake and equestrian facilities.
The house has been sympathetically refurbished retaining the original character and charm with elegant, well-proportioned rooms offering high ceilings and plenty of natural light with many of the period features remaining including handsome fireplaces and sash windows with shutters. There is a contemporary extension boasting an impressive garden room, utility room and boot room with underfloor heating providing modern day, family living. The accommodation flows effortlessly across two floors.
The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with a solid chestnut wood floor. The drawing room enjoys views out over the rolling garden at the back of the house down to the lake, whilst the dining room looks out over the formal garden. Both have French doors outside. The morning room, currently utilised as a study, has bespoke fitted cupboards and a dual aspect. The kitchen is a bespoke design with two central islands, an electric Aga with a companion, French doors opening to an east facing courtyard and a utility room off, with further fitted cupboards and units, a boot room and informal access outside. From the kitchen, steps lead down into the contemporary garden/ family room with floor to ceiling glass doors giving panoramic views of the gardens. These open to the terrace making it a wonderful entertaining space.
The staircase rises to the first floor from which the four bedrooms flow. The principal bedroom suite boasts fine views over the garden, lake and woodland beyond with a spacious dressing room off and an en suite bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath and a separate shower. There are three further bedrooms including two double rooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom four has been reconfigured to provide a versatile living space with original oak floorboards, an en suite shower room, a walk in dressing room and can be accessed by a secondary staircase which descends to the utility room.
Alscot Lodge has cellarage, comprising a wine store and plant room.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Alscot Lodge is approached through electric gates over a gravel driveway which sweeps through mature woodland to reveal the handsome house which has a turning circle in front. The gardens and grounds provide an idyllic setting for Alscot Lodge.
To the south west of the house is a formal garden surrounded by mixed borders and yew hedging, with box bordered rose beds to the centre. The principal garden is to the north west and is predominantly laid to lawn with a magnificent lake fed by the Crowbrook Stream attracting a variety of wildlife. There is mature woodland beyond providing a sheltered boundary.
The heated swimming pool is situated within a private, walled garden with well stocked, herbaceous borders and an array of fruit trees including quince, apple and medlar. To the east of the house is a wonderful and established kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds and a good selection of fruit bushes and trees. There is also a large greenhouse.
The spacious terrace can be accessed via stone steps from the drawing room, or from the garden room, and provides a versatile entertaining and alfresco dining space with fine views across the grounds under the canopy of a mature magnolia grandiflora.
