Delightful Rothschild style house with about six acres.
Drayton Manor Lodge can be found on the very outskirts of Tring, approximately one mile from the High Street whilst enjoying immediate access onto a public bridleway/Byway which facilitates access to some of the best riding and walking the Chilterns has to offer.
Originally built in 1902, Drayton Manor Lodge typifies Rothschild architecture and was sympathetically extended about 18 years ago to create a beautiful family home, enjoying stunning views over its own paddocks and gardens. The sitting room is both light and spacious and features a light oak floor and French doors which open due west onto the gardens, ideal to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. The Farmhouse style kitchen/dining room is perfectly in keeping with the era offering plenty of space for entertaining. Exposed wooden floor boards and black granite work surfaces compliment the hand painted units featuring a traditional oil fired Aga and an attractive log burning stove. A walk though Pantry gives access to the utility room and from the kitchen, a rear lobby leads to a w/c and the lounge. A good size study or snug offers a variety of uses and looks onto the driveway and stables at the front. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms arranged around the landing with a large and well-appointed family bath/shower room. The master bedroom benefits from an en suite shower.
Agents note - The house is being sold on behalf of a Savills (UK) Limited employee.
The property is accessed via a five-bar gate which leads onto a gravelled driveway providing ample parking for numerous cars and gives access to the stable yard and paddock land. There is a large south westerly facing secluded rear garden which is mainly lawn, providing excellent playing space for the children. The paddocks, directly opposite the house and gardens, are enclosed and divided by post and rail fencing totaling approximately six acres. There is a large enclosed chicken pen and vegetable garden behind the stables as well as a further range of storage sheds.
For those seeking an equestrian property, there are three paddocks and a stable yard comprising four loose boxes, connected with power and water, along with a tack room and hay barn.
Detached home office/studio/annexe
Adjacent to the stable block and facing west towards the paddocks is an attractive timber framed building designed in the style of the stable block, with a w/c and kitchen which is currently used as a private studio but is also ideal for working from home' or for when guests stay over.
