Charming family home in immaculate condition
With origins thought to date back to the 1700s, Elston Lodge is not listed and offers a wonderful family home of about 2,750 sq ft, presented in very good order. The house is of brick construction, rendered, under a tiled roof. The property is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Elston, just north of Shrewton.
The house itself is stylishly presented with a good flow of rooms on both the ground and first floors.
The entrance hall lies at the heart of the house, with a large kitchen/breakfast room to one side. The kitchen is dual aspect, with fitted units, a large central island, range cooker and integrated dishwasher. There is ample space for a breakfast table, whilst a glazed door opens out to the rear terrace and garden, with a further door through to the utility room.
The drawing room is a lovely room, with open fire place and French windows out to the east facing gardens, ideal for morning sunshine. The dual aspect dining room is also off the entrance hall, with a further door leading through to the family room, quietly positioned at the end of the house.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom enjoys lovely views over the rear garden, with ample built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further guest bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom and the other with an en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms share the family bathroom, with separate walk-in shower.
Elston Lodge is approached off Elston Lane, opening onto a gravelled turning circle with access to the garaging and ample parking to the front and side of the house.
A detached triple garage block has been partially converted, retaining one secure garage, with a home office and attached store room.
The gardens are private, largely enclosed by a band of mature trees and hedges. They are mainly down to lawn, with a pond in the western part of the garden and a stone flagged terrace with a BBQ built in to the Purbeck Stone wall for outdoor dining to the east.

Elston itself is such a lovely little hamlet and this house offers some great space, both inside and out. Importantly, the home office gives it some separate space for home working.James McKillopProperty agent
