Handsome four bedroom family house with self contained one bedroom annexe in much sought after market town.
Elm Lodge sits back from the road enjoying an elevated position protected by mature trees on this sought after road.
This handsome detached family home was built in the 1970's but has a characterful appearance thanks to clever use of weatherboarding, steeply pitched roof lines and dormer windows. The house has been significantly updated over the years with the addition of a ground floor annexe room and bedroom as well as a lovely garden room to the rear which has both tall windows and a roof light to offer excellent natural light. Internally the neutral décor is beautifully presented with bright, airy rooms adding to the sense of space throughout. The floor plan is very versatile, with the aforementioned annexe providing a flexible space for multi-generational living such as grandparents or older children. It could be used as a full self-contained space, with adjoining shower room and bathroom or as a generous home office with its own kitchen, or even as an income generator. With a door connecting to the rest of the house, there are many possibilities.
The generous accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to over 3100 sq ft. On the ground floor, an entrance hall with porcelain tiled floor with cloakroom/WC provides a welcoming first impression and access to the 21ft sitting room with oak floor and gas fire, dining room/kitchen and garden room, all of which interconnect via archways or double doors to create one large space that's perfect for entertaining. The kitchen has a good range of bespoke wall and base units with integrated appliances including a Kitchen Aid pull out fridge, electric Aga and a central island with quartz worktops. In addition there is a separate utility room with good storage and door to garden. The annexe is accessed via the sitting room and includes a hallway, double bedroom, shower room and main room with gas stove which could function as a kitchen/living room or a full studio space. On the first floor the bedrooms are arranged around a central landing and include a principal bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en suite, guest bedroom with en suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside Elm Lodge is set back from the road within a generous plot with gardens to the front and rear. To the front a tarmac drive leads up through lawns to a parking area and a detached double garage. There is additional parking directly in front of the house on a block-paved area which serves as access to both the main house and the annexe. The rear garden is mostly level and laid to lawn, with mature trees and hedges providing a high degree of privacy. There are block-paved patios on either side of the garden room with space for furniture.

I like everything about this house, stunning kitchen breakfast room and garden room which are made for entertaining and an immaculate single storey annexe, all next door to a beautiful and challenging golf courseRoo Fisher
