A fine Georgian property with three formal reception rooms leading to wonderful landscaped grounds of about 1.5 acres.
Woodcote Lodge is an impressive country house, boasting character and elegant proportions. The house has been in the same family for over 30 years and has the warm and welcoming ambience of a well-loved home, with living space equally suited to informal family life or more formal entertaining.
Believed to date back prior to 1840, with Victorian additions, Woodcote Lodge retains the wonderful character features of its heritage including open fireplaces, high ceilings, sash windows, window shutters, decorative cornicing, tall skirting boards and panelled doors.
The spacious principal reception rooms overlook and access the glorious gardens whilst the conservatory opens to the herb garden. There is a formal drawing room, dining room and separate sitting room, each with fireplaces and glazed doors leading to the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room and adjacent utility room are bright, spacious and with a range of fitted units. There is a useful store room and an attractive stud.
There is a magnificent reception hall ideal for entertaining with attractive glazed doors either end, a stone fireplace and leads to all reception rooms.
The elegant staircase rises with half landings rise to the first floor where all seven bedrooms and four bathrooms are located.
The principal bedroom suite comprises a dressing room with an en suite bathroom and enjoys dual aspect over the gardens. There is a guest suite, a two bedroom suite and three further double bedrooms served by the family bathroom.
There is a small staircase behind a door on the first landing that leads to the attic rooms (formerly the staff accommodation) which are in need of modernisation.
The mature grounds envelope the house and have been designed for low maintenance and includes specimen trees, creating year-round interest. This is a well-established and beautifully garden with stunning rhododendrons, numerous flowering trees and shrubs. To the rear of the garden, behind tall firs is the well maintained tennis court.
Woodcote Lodge is approached via a large gravelled driveway with parking and turning circle and a detached double garage provides secure parking and tractor store.
