    About this property

    • Believed to date from the mid-1920s, 122 Copthorne Road – also known as Lambourn Lodge – is an elegant detached home with rose-clad brick elevations, red brick window dressings, twin bay windows and a slate tiled roof. Over the last 15 years the current owners have carefully and sympathetically extended and refurbished the property room by room, resulting in a superbly appointed home finished to the highest standard. Every care has been taken to preserve the original 1920s features, which include the original entrance vestibule with its leaded light windows, the oak staircase, internal doors, high ceilings, deep skirting boards and intricate coving. These period elements are complemented by modern fittings such as a Mobalpa kitchen, stylish modern bathroom suites, partial zoned under floor heating, and finishes including Iroko wood, solid oak and porcelain tiled floors and recessed spot lighting.

      The house offers over 2,100 square feet of accommodation over two floors, the full extent and layout of which can be seen on the floor plans. The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with original oak staircase rising to the first floor, lying off the hall is a formal dining room with limestone feature fireplace, and a cloakroom with bespoke walnut and granite vanity unit. The partially open plan kitchen and sitting room is the real hub of the home, offering a stylish yet comfortable seating area featuring a working fireplace with bespoke Aegan limestone surround and slate hearth, together with a superbly appointed modern kitchen; an expanse of bi-fold doors open to the east terrace, creating a seamless link between the house and garden. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of high gloss and limed oak units and a central island by Mobalpa, complemented by quartz worktops, a range of high-end integrated appliances, a stunning Murano glass splashback and Elica crystal extractor.

      The adjoining utility room leads on to a charming vaulted garden room, cleverly converted by the current owners from an original workshop. The room has bi-fold doors opening to the garden, a feature fireplace and an adjoining wet room and, together with the utility room, has good potential for conversion to a self-contained annexe (subject to the necessary consents).

      There are five beautifully decorated bedrooms on the first floor, served by a stylish fully-tiled family bathroom with walnut detailing; the fifth bedroom has been fitted with a range of bespoke open wardrobes and is currently used as a dressing room.

      Lambourn Lodge is approached from Copthorne Road via a sweeping gravel driveway flanked by rose beds, which leads to a parking area ahead of the detached double garage. To the front of the house is an expanse of well-tended lawn and a bank of mature trees and shrubs screening the house from the road.

      There is gated pedestrian access to the east of the house leading to the well-enclosed rear garden, which has been carefully landscaped to ensure sunny seating areas throughout the day, with two slate terraces adjoining the house, outside lighting and an area of level lawn edged by box hedging. A slate pathway leads to a gate at the rear of the garden, giving direct access to Mill Lane, and in turn Hedgecourt Lake.
