A striking contemporary eco-house with gardens and grounds extending to about four and a half acres, overlooking beautiful open countryside.
Gatherley Lodge is a unique contemporary home and a true statement property, offering versatile accommodation on a grand scale. It occupies a superb position on the outskirts of Brompton on Swale, with open rural views to the front extending as far as the Hambleton Hills and North Yorkshire Moors.
The property has been constructed to an exceptionally high standard and incorporates the best in modern technology, including underfloor heating throughout with individually controlled zones, fed by a ground source heat pump, integrated CAT 5 wiring, supported by solar panels which also boost the hot water supply. There is also a rainwater harvesting system which reduces water usage and provides a useful supply for the garden, WC's and washing machine. All of the fittings are of the highest quality and have been carefully selected to enhance this unique building.
Totalling over 3500 square feet and arranged over two floors, the accommodation is extensive and designed with modern family living in mind. The eye-catching full-height gable framed window to the front of the house enhances the entrance hall and galleried landings, boosting natural light levels on each floor. Sliding doors extend across the rear of the building from the kitchen/ living area, opening out onto a raised terrace area which extends the width of the house providing a perfect venue for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is also a very inviting snug/TV room, a more formal sitting room and a dining room/playroom, off the kitchen is a utility room and there is also a downstairs WC which all combine to form a house ideally suited to active, growing families. There are electric blinds throughout the ground floor, controlled by voice control with either Alexa or Sonos.
All four bedrooms are well proportioned doubles served by two luxurious en suite bathrooms and a sizeable house bathroom. The principal suite benefits from a dressing area and generous bathroom suite, as well as access to two balconies, one to the rear which benefits from the evening sun and one which sits above the front entrance and provides a super vantage point from which to enjoy the views and morning sun.
The house stands at the end of a sweeping gravelled driveway in a large expanse of lawn, bordered by a newly installed fence and tall hedging providing complete privacy. To the rear of the property, at one end of the raised patio is a covered BBQ area and opposite that in one corner of the garden, a covered entertaining area all of which enjoy south westerly aspects and benefit from afternoon sun. There is a large parking area to the front and side of the triple garage, above which is a useful bar and entertainment room, which could also be used as home office or a gym. The bulk of the land lies to the North and East, arranged as two level paddocks with fenced and hedged boundaries.

The house and eco credentials certainly impress but the outlook was something very special.Ed StoyleProperty agent
