Beautifully presented and carefully crafted home with superb attention to detail set in idyllic surroundings.....
Polshot Manor Lodge is an excellently presented and carefully crafted home with superb attention to detail. The property has been extended over time and has been thoughtfully designed.
The exterior features tile hung elevations, exposed timber frames and herringbone brickwork which are harmoniously paired with expanses of glass creating a stunning sense of light within a contemporarily presented yet characterful space.
An attractive open porch and detailed pine front door arrive into the heart of the home where all the ground floor accommodation radiates from. You immediately get the sense that this is a fabulously sociable home. Each of the rooms are wonderfully versatile and all enjoy views out to the surrounding gardens.
The kitchen is located in the centre of home and is beautifully appointed with handle-less cabinets with a grey stained rough sawn oak veneered and satin glass finish which house first class integrated appliances and wood grain cabinets topped with sleek granite countertops. The kitchen is open plan to a breakfast room/dining area with access to the garden and with an inset multi-fuel fireplace.
Double doors lead into a remarkable oak framed sitting room beneath an abundance of exposed beams and a wide rotating door opening to the garden terrace.
To the rear of the kitchen is a wonderful additional reception room completing the excellent interplay of living spaces, with a vaulted ceiling and wide double doors out on to the patio and bar making it equally ideal for entertaining family and friends.
The abundant use of glass throughout the ground floor immerses you within the greenery of the garden, it seamlessly connects you with the landscaped terrace and garden patio at every opportunity.
A discreet utility area keeps laundry appliances hidden from view and a contemporary cloakroom/shower room completes the ground floor.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms supplying an ideal degree of flexible family accommodation and are served by a family bathroom which has a timber framed bath and walk-in shower. The high these is the impressive triple aspect principal suite under a spectacular vaulted ceiling. The full height windows on either side of the room frame glazed doors, one of which opens onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and there is a luxury en suite wet room with twin countertop basins.
A spiral staircase leads to the second floor where there is home office or fifth double bedroom which is complimented by a shower room.
Outside to the front the property is approached via a gravel driveway and area of hard standing provides space for turning and parking.
A spacious landscaped terrace encompasses the house presenting a perfect alfresco entertaining space and vantage point to admire the symmetry and height of the striking banks of glazing that reaches to the roof within the timber framing and the herringbone design of the facade's brickwork.
A decked terrace provides an alternative choice of spots for alfresco dining. The considerable lawns with glorious borders invite you to take a stroll in the sunshine and discover the raised timber beds of a vegetable garden with timber sheds and flowerbeds.
The garden continues onward from the formal lawns to an established area of more natural woodland garden with a abundance of azaleas, rhododendrons, ferns and attractive trees which provide an enchanting outlook and back drop and also create a coveted measure of privacy.
Within the plot which measures about 0.75 of an acre, is planning permission for the existing dilapidated outbuilding to be replaced by a garden studio/hobbies room, with the foundations already prepared. There is also scope, subject to planning permission, for a double garage to be built on an area of hard standing parking within the drive.

Possibly the most tranquil setting of all our houses on the market right now. I was very impressed with the interiors and in particular the principal bedroom are stunning. Plus there is opportunity to create more. Perfect location with a rural walk in to the active village of Elstead.Max RhodesProperty agent
