Stone built house with private gardens in prime residential location
Grattan Lodge is a stone-built house with a private, enclosed, south facing garden and a garage and off street parking.
The property was originally a single storey wing on the side of the neighbouring Victorian building. In the 1960s a second floor was added to create the house which exists today. It has a flat, felt roof.
The property has been upgraded with a south facing orangery being added onto the sitting room in 2014 which means that light floods through all the main living space. There is solid oak wood flooring throughout the ground level. The windows have been upgraded with double glazed modern sash and case windows.
There may be potential to extend the accommodation subject to obtaining all necessary local authority consents.
The house is approached by a gravel drive with a low stone wall in front. (Cast iron railings will be installed shortly). A gate leads through to the front garden and steps up to the entrance vestibule which has a roof light and bi-fold doors into the orangery.
The kitchen has a three oven gas fired AGA, Whirlpool single induction ring, oak units, laminate worktops, Hotpoint American style fridge/freezer, Bosch dishwasher and washing machine. There is a Kingfisher boiler and pressurised hot water cylinder.
The large drawing room has an open fire with sandstone surround and hearth. Steps lead down to the south facing orangery which has a mainly glazed roof with windows and French doors along the front. There is a multi-fuel Charnwood stove with slate hearth in the corner.
Off the hall is the original front door which opens into the garden. There is a cloakroom with WC, wash basin and original butler's sink. The cellar has steps down to a cupboard which houses the electricity meter.
Stairs up to first floor landing.
The principal bedroom has a sitting area opposite the bed. Bathroom with Porcelanosa tiles, Duravit sanitary ware, bath & heated towel rail.
Bedroom 2 has exposed beams and fitted wardrobe with a door through the wardrobe to an en suite shower room with Mira electric pressure shower. The third bedroom is currently used as a study.
To the south of the house, in front of the orangery, is an enclosed garden with a wall on one side and high fences on two sides. It has a lawn, mature borders and flower beds. There is a greenhouse and a sheltered patio outside the main entrance.
To the side of the house is a single garage with manual up and over door. It has a roof light.
To the north of the house is a gravel driveway with space to park four or five cars.
