About this property

  • Underidge is a handsome Arts and Crafts property believed to date to 1906. The property has been updated and extended by the current owner who has since maintained the property to an exceptionally high standard.

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors and flows effortlessly with four well-proportioned reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room with fine views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

    There are five large bedrooms on the first floor including the spacious principal bedroom suite comprising a bedroom, dressing area, study and bathroom. There are four further bedrooms all served by their own bathroom totalling 4890 sq ft of space in the main house.

    There is further separate accommodation in Underidge Lodge, which is situated next to the main gate into the property. The Lodge comprises a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms, bathroom and a private garden. It extends to about 1,300 sq ft in all. The Lodge has historically been used an income generator but it could also be used as additional guest or staff accommodation.

    Gardens and Grounds The property is set within beautiful grounds of approximately 5 acres which have been landscaped in a park-like style with rolling lawns, mature trees, orchard and attractive features.

    Two electric gated entrances lead through to a sweeping tarmac driveway that winds through the grounds to the main house, where there is a large parking area to the front for several vehicles and access to the attached double garage. The driveway splits to provide separate access to the Lodge, which is set within its own parking area making it feel secluded and detached from the main property. Further outbuildings include a summerhouse and garden shed.

    The gardens surround the property on all sides and are mostly laid to lawn, with a natural boundary of mature trees providing a high degree of privacy though the bordering land which is predominantly farmland and affords lovely views. The gardens include an expansive terrace for outdoor entertaining, as well as a tennis court and a productive apple orchard. The grounds have been purposely designed to provide low maintenance for the owner.

    Set discreetly within the grounds there are solar panels which provide a proportion of electricity for the main house and Underidge Lodge.
