About this property

  • Sitting at the top of the village, at the foot of Wass bank, Virginia Lodge is an outstanding stone built house set in around an acre of picturesque grounds. Originally two cottages dating back to the 18th century, the property has been much improved and extended by its current owner and is now presented in excellent condition with an abundance of character.

    The layout is well balanced and extremely flexible, with the ground floor accommodation designed for family living and entertaining. The dining room/snug forms part of the extension with utilities in place to allow the creation of a sizeable kitchen-dining room. There are two further reception rooms; a drawing room with open fireplace and a sitting room with gas fire. Continuing through the ground floor there is a separate kitchen with adjoining utility room and door leading to the garden room.

    Ascending the beautiful oak, Mouseman staircase to the first floor there are three generous bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms. Bedroom three is served by a house bathroom.

    Externally the property sits in a beautifully landscaped plot of around an acre, with a formal well-planted garden to the front and lawned garden to the rear leading to the woodland beyond. The garden has a number of well-placed mature trees and shrubs and an idyllic stream running along the side of the plot.

    There is off-street parking on the gravelled driveway for several cars and a car port with space for two cars.

    A one bedroom annexe sits just beyond the house providing excellent ancillary accommodation. There are also a number of stone outbuildings and a timber shed.

Backing onto the woodland, offering commanding views of the surrounding countryside and with a stream running down the side of the garden you couldn't wish to find a more tranquil setting.
