    About this property

    • The sale of Thorner Lodge offers a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and spectacular family home. The property sits within beautiful private formal gardens bounded by a small stream together with an orchard all enjoying views over open greenbelt countryside. There is also a separate stone built garage block with first floor rooms suitable for conversion to residential accommodation or a home office, subject to the necessary consents.

      The property occupies an established position in the small agricultural hamlet of Sandhills on the southern fringe of the sought after village of Thorner. The principal dwelling extends to almost 4,400 square feet, and has a wealth of original character features. The ground floor accommodation comprises a suite of reception rooms, two of the rooms, one with open fire, are connected by double doors and offer a generous and inviting entertainment space, facing south with French doors opening into the garden and views across the lawn to two spectacular Copper Beeches and open countryside beyond. The third spacious reception room on the north side also enjoys an open fire and attractive views over the lawns and flower beds towards the orchard. The hallway leads to these reception rooms, a cloakroom and WC, kitchen and utility room as well to the storage cellars. The fitted kitchen and equally well-proportioned utility room could readily be combined to form a large open plan living kitchen if required.

      At first floor level the principal bedroom has an en-suite dressing room and bath/shower room and there are then 5 further spacious double bedrooms and a house bathroom.

      The property is approached through electric wrought iron entrance gates, down a sweeping gravel driveway into a rear courtyard providing ample parking for numerous vehicles in turn giving access to a stone built detached garage block, providing garaging for up to 5 cars and an internal staircase giving access to first floor accommodation ideally suited for a home office suite. The garage block was a textile mill, dating from the mid-18th century, around which the hamlet of Sandhills was established.

      An outstanding feature of Thorner Lodge are the beautiful established and private formal gardens with extensive lawns, borders, stone terracing, vegetable, and soft fruit walled garden, in all extending to just under an acre. The front lawn continues to the north into an arboretum, dotted with specimen trees, bordered by a stone wall to the west and open countryside to the east. The property is bounded to the southeast and northeast by a meandering stream and greenbelt open countryside which is home to a great variety of wildlife, including kingfisher, woodpecker, deer and heron.
