About this property

  • North Lodge is a picturesque double fronted detached Victorian home nestled within a Conservation area which has been the subject of an extensive renovation project in recent years. Formerly one of the gate lodges to Milton Hall, it had sadly fallen into considerable disrepair (despite its Grade II listed status) and has been carefully restored by the vendors whilst retaining many of the delightful period features. These include the intricate brick detailing, created with a mix of Cambridge gault and red bricks, ornate bargeboards, ridge tiles, patterned roof slates and more generally various arched/pointed arched detailing.

    Due to the poor state of the property, we understand that the Heritage Planners were sympathetic with the requirements of the necessary upgrade and the vendors were therefore able to add double glazing, a new staircase and underfloor heating during the course of the upgrade which took place between 2015 and 2018. Other works included damp proofing, timber treatment, re-wiring, re-plumbing, gas fired underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and a new glass link to the impressive single storey extension to the rear.

    The layout of the house offers versatile accommodation over two floors, as you enter the house, the main double aspect bedroom is situated to the left on the ground floor and incorporates an en suite bathroom fitted with both bath and shower. Opposite is the double aspect sitting room with bay window and shelving. To the rear of the stairs is a useful study/potential library together with a cloakroom and store. The glass link provides sliding door access to a courtyard on either side and into the stunning contemporary kitchen/living/dining space. The kitchen area is fitted with an oversized island, store cupboards and a range of fittings and appliances include a Quooker tap, wine cooler, two electric fan ovens, a warming drawer, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a remote ceiling extractor. Velfac windows and sliding doors to the rear overlook the garden and directly connect this space to the rear terrace.

This house is full of character, the kitchen/dining/living area really has the WOW factor. I love that a previously derelict Grade II listed building has been brought back to life.
