About this property

  • Broom Lodge is understood to date from 1705 and stands proudly on the corner of Braggs Lane and the High Street. Listed Grade II* as being of historic and architectural interest, the distinctive gable ends suggest a Dutch influence. The home is set over two storeys with two parallel rear wings with common wall and a later (thought to be Victorian) red brick wing adjacent. The earlier part of the house has brick elevations, an old plain tile roof with shaped parapet gables and end chimney stacks. A range of original hung sash windows dominate the front aspect.

    The ornate front door with bolection moulded panels sets the tone for what lies beyond as it leads you in to the entrance hall which has the kitchen/breakfast room (right) and dining room (left) leading directly off. The sizable kitchen is fitted with wall and floor units, integrated oven, plumbing for a washing machine and pantry storage. The formal dining room is also at the front of the property with a rather impressive open fire place. Offering dual aspect views over the gardens the sitting room is full of natural light with a pair of full length sash windows overlooking the garden, a fireplace provides the room with a focal point and there is access from here into the study/library or potential music room perhaps. Completing the ground floor is a generous split level pantry and an extremely useful cloaks area which incorporates a walk in shower, wash basin and low level WC.

    A particular feature of note is the original closed string pine staircase of three flights with turned balusters, square sectional newel posts and moulded handrail, that leads to the first floor accommodation. There are five bedrooms - four of which are generous double bedrooms with built in storage. The double aspect main bedroom also has the benefit of its own en suite bathroom with a walk in shower, panelled bath, sink with vanity unit and low level WC. The fifth bedroom interconnects with one of the bedrooms but is also independently accessed from the landing and in addition there is a family bathroom.

    The mature gardens and grounds include a private courtyard/parking area behind a pillared brick wall. The extensive outbuildings to the right are thought to originally have been the stabling and cart lodge for the house, evidence remains internally of the halter hooks, hay feeders and in part a herringbone patterned brick floor. The right hand end of this block was converted some years ago into an office, the central area has a ladder up to the vaulted upper floor, sharing the same footprint as the former stable block and in addition there is an interconnecting door to the garage (former Coach House). Beyond and accessed from the garden is a very useful garden store/workshop.

    This range of buildings offers a fantastic opportunity for renovation and conversion, subject to all the relevant planning permissions and Listed Building consents.

    The private rear gardens are laid to lawn with mature trees, including an impressive Beech tree, a variety of box and yew hedging features throughout the garden with two ponds one centrally in the lawned area and the other to the front of the outbuildings. There is an additional kitchen garden area to the rear of the garden with a brick serpentine wall which provides a super location for growing fruit and vegetables or a separate play area for children.

    In all about 0.69 acres.

    Agents Note: The property in in a Conservation area.
