About this property

  • The Chestnuts is a stunning Grade II Listed Georgian residence situated in the small and popular market town of Loddon. Maintained and enhanced by its current owner, this wonderful property offers abundant living space suitable for both families and couples, with the added benefit of accommodating multigenerational living.

    Believed to have been constructed in the late 18th century and with a previous incarnation as a doctor's surgery, The Chestnuts is a fine example of the timeless appeal of Georgian architecture whilst seamlessly incorporating modern conveniences.......

    Extending to over 4600 sq ft, the property spans three floors and boasts five impressive reception rooms and six spacious bedrooms. The high ceilings throughout much of the house, a hallmark of Georgian architecture, create an airy and grand ambiance which is felt as soon as you enter the property via the entrance hall with attractive staircase. This leads on to a splendid Drawing Room and spacious Dining Room which offer wonderful opportunities to entertain guests. They feature fireplaces that serve as attractive focal points, while the elegant sash windows allow an abundance of natural light to grace the interiors...

    The ground floor accommodation continues with a versatile kitchen/breakfast room with sitting area that leads through to a further informal dining area offering a wonderful open-plan space for everyday living. This also leads to an exquisite orangery, designed and built by Quayside with underfloor heating, offering a superb place to unwind whilst enjoying views of the garden. The property also has the benefit of a home office with independent access.

    The majority of the bedroom accommodation is located on the first floor comprising five bedrooms, two shower rooms and a luxurious family bathroom. This includes the impressive principal bedroom with modern en suite shower room. The second floor offers a useful sixth bedroom and practical attic space including stores.

    Within the grounds is a detached studio, The Garden House, which provides flexibility as either a guest retreat or potential use as an annexe or an income stream, should the buyer desire. Featuring a contemporary kitchen, shower room, and a versatile open-plan living/bedroom area, this fully-equipped space offers both comfort and convenience, catering to the needs and preferences of those who reside or visit.

    Outside
    Upon entering through the double wrought iron gates, you are greeted by an expansive gravel driveway providing space for numerous vehicles. Sitting within an attractive and largely walled plot of about 0.5 acres, the manicured gardens have been mainly laid to lawn with the inclusion of several beds containing maturing shrubs. The outdoor space also boasts a patio terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining as well as a rear courtyard with access into a useful workshop, completing the exterior offering catering to both leisure and functional needs.

I love the combination at The Chestnuts of being able to walk into the centre of Loddon to access its many amenities and yet have the grandeur of a period country house.
