A high-end family home set in over half an acre on a sought-after country lane.
Holyrood Lodge sits in a mature plot of half an acre on the outskirts of the town and on a pretty country lane with views over the surrounding countryside. The house was built in the 1980s but has since been enlarged to include a substantial two storey extension and has benefited from a number of significant improvements such as a swimming pool and pool house.
A spacious entrance hall gives on to the principal ground floor rooms, which include a 36' sitting room with feature fireplace, a dining room and a superb 650 sq ft kitchen/breakfast/living room. The latter is fitted in a seamless contemporary style with Neolith work surfaces and integrated appliances such as a Miele induction hob, Miele double oven, microwave oven, Miele dishwasher and Gaggenau fridge, freezer and wine cooler. The ancillary facilities include a fully fitted utility room, a laundry room and ground floor WC, while two rooms currently used as an office (fitted with bespoke Neville Johnson furniture)and a study are versatile spaces providing easy opportunity for alternate use as a playroom and/or snug. All the accommodation has been designed to take advantage of the views over the grounds, with the principal rooms orientated to face down the garden towards the countryside beyond and the 9m of bi-fold doors that extend across the back of the house and lead out on to the terrace providing a direct link with the outside.
All five bedrooms on the first floor enjoy views over the front or the rear of the property and include a master suite with built-in air conditioning and a large bespoke dressing room, a guest bedroom suite, another three bedrooms and there is a family bathroom. The second floor is currently used as a music room, also with built-in air conditioning.
The property is set back from the road and is approached through automated gates and along a gravel drive that provides plenty of off road parking in front of the house, under a two-bay cart lodge to the side and in a detached double garage. The beautiful garden to the rear has extensive lawns (served by an automated irrigation system) and an abundance of evergreen and deciduous specimen trees, while the large terrace along the back of the house has provided an opportunity for more formal planting, a number of seating areas and a Jacuzzi spa. A 5m x 10m metre swimming pool with full LED colour lighting system and automated safety cover lies beyond and a detached pool house at one end extends to approximately 384 sq ft and incorporates a kitchenette, inside and outside showers, a steam room and a plant room.
