About this property

  • The historic, Grade II Listed, Earldoms Lodge is of Flemish bond brick construction, under a clay tile roof. It boasts a plethora of original features, and has recently been updated in parts by the current owners. The grounds have been significantly improved. An attractive pitched roof porch leads into the entrance hall. The adjacent sitting room has an original fireplace with a woodburning stove and the 25ft, double aspect drawing room has part-glazed double doors onto the verandah, overlooking the garden. It has a fireplace at one end and original parquet floor.

    The double aspect dining room benefits from a fireplace and access to a boot room which, in turn, has a back door onto the rear verandah. The light-filled kitchen has fitted cupboards, integrated dishwasher and fridge, built-in oven and electric hob and also, ubiquitous in a farmhouse kitchen, an Aga. In addition, the kitchen benefits from a north facing walk-in larder. The adjacent back kitchen, with door to outside, has a walk-in cupboard, a sink and large draining area and access to the back stairs. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. There is a traditional, brick-built Gardener's WC to the rear of the house, accessed from the garden. Upstairs has original elm floorboards throughout and six well proportioned bedrooms, all with fitted cupboards/wardrobes. There is a bathroom, a shower room and a separate WC. An attractive verandah runs along the southern aspect of the house, built in the 1920s, with original wooden posts. The owners have also built a new home office in the grounds which needs the interior completing.


    Outside
    Approached via a sweeping gravel driveway, Earldoms Lodge sits behind well-established beech, yew and holly hedges and is positioned comfortably in the centre of its land, with outer boundaries of mature trees. The garden, mostly laid to lawn, wraps around the house, with a paddock on the south side and mature trees such as Yew, Cedar, Oak, Horse Chestnut, Apple and Sycamore.

    Land
    A gravel drive bears to the right hand side of the house taking you to the garages, hay barn and additional outbuildings. The property backs onto nearly 2,000 acres of woodland and looks out over a lake, belonging to neighbouring Earldoms Farm. The garden wraps around the house and there is a fenced paddock of about 0.7 of an acre. There is also about 1.4 acres of woodland.

    Planning
    In 2021, Benchmark Planning Consultants of Salisbury advised that, with guidance from a Heritage Architect, the house has potential for a kitchen and 1st floor bedroom extension and there is scope for redevelopment of the garages and outbuildings (subject to the required planning consents).
