A beautiful and unlisted house in a striking setting within almost three acres of gardens, and additional use of Burley on the Hill's circa 60 acres of wider grounds.
Despite its setting and appearance, this beautifully appointed house is not listed. Constructed in 1996, it was further modernised in 2013. Its grounds lie within the mansion house's overall conservation landscape, with the benefit of the additional use of the estate's wider parkland and woodland.
Double doors from the stone flagged entrance hall open into the dining room, allowing you to combine the two spaces for large scale dining.
The entrance hallway leads through to the sitting room, which boasts a huge inglenook with a wood burning stove, a trussed ceiling and French doors to the rear walled courtyard garden.
The fabulous kitchen is highly convivial, with separate preparatory, eating and seating sections. The bespoke suite, designed by Hill Farm, incorporates an island, integrated appliances and double oven Aga, with separate oven and hob, whilst a snug area, with wood burner, is separated by a stable stall.
A utility room and larder adjoins, with a marvellous and versatile south-facing garden room, with doors to the property's well-maintained courtyard garden, ideal for al-fresco inside-outside' dining.
Three of the four bedrooms are ground floor. Bedroom one and four, with its fabulous bathroom, would combine to form one suite. Bedroom three, with its shower room, is situated in the western wing of the property, allowing complete privacy. A staircase off the entrance hall rises to the master suite complete with beautifully crafted in-built wardrobes, staggering easterly views and a full suite bathroom, which occupies the property's entire first floor.
Under floor heated throughout, with stone flagged and solid wood flooring, trussed and vaulted ceilings, attractive windows, with shutters, and well-appointed kitchen, bath and shower rooms, East Lodge exudes charm and has an abiding feel of light and space. It also has a fabulous layout for couples, families and entertaining alike.
The property is accessed through an electric gate and over a cattle grid, with wrought iron parkland fencing. There is a second access, from East Court, to the large walled rear courtyard garden.
The tree lined drive leads through part of the lawned gardens, framing fabulous views over farmland and to the estate's woodland, leading to the house. There is generous space for parking and a detached garage block, which is currently used as a garage/store and gym. Burley residents have the right to walk north to south across part of the garden to reach the estate woods.
Residents are together responsible for maintenance of the common parts of the Estate. As owner you will have one share in the management company Burley Gardens Ltd and pay an annual management charge, currently set at £3330.
