About this property

  • The Lodge is an attractive conversion of former traditional farm buildings, enjoying a rural position and set in about 1.5 acres of mature gardens and grounds at the end of a long farm track, creating a peaceful and private setting.

    The accommodation is arranged in an L-shape, with a high brick wall and four bay cart lodge adjoining, forming a delightful enclosed courtyard garden at the centre with a south to south-west aspect, perfect for outside dining. The courtyard can be accessed from various points in the house, with many tall glass windows and doors looking onto the area.

    The rooms of the house are light and airy, with vaulted ceilings in the principal living rooms. Of particular note are the sitting room, dual aspect and predominantly glazed out on the west elevation to the courtyard and complete with wood burner, the spacious kitchen/breakfast room and the part open plan dining room into billiard room measuring approximately 39” x 14” in total. All the bedrooms are gathered at one end of the house and include a master bedroom with dressing area and en suite shower room, with door out to the courtyard. There are five bedrooms in all. It would be fair to say the house would benefit from updating, but offers great potential given the setting and orientation.

    The Lodge is approached over a long drive sweeping round to the gravelled parking and turning area for the property. There is parking for many cars with the drive continuing to the south of the house and the four bay cart lodge.

    The gardens are lawned in the main, with the main expanse to the east continuing round to the south. The gardens are interspersed with shrubs and trees including some wonderful oak trees. Further features include a pond, and the boundary is marked by mature hedging and woodland with views of countryside beyond. The courtyard garden comprises an entirely enclosed area, with veranda, gravelled and lawned areas with roses, herbaceous beds, small pond and a pergola clad with mature wisteria.
