Stunning Grade II Georgian country home exquisitely restored and renovated enjoying unspoilt countryside views set in around 3.5 acres of gardens and grounds
East Lodge is a very fine Grade II listed country house originally forming part of the Rolleston Estate.
Since the current owners acquired the property it has been completely transformed with considerable care and attention taken to the fabric of the building including the restoration of the stone ashlar blocks that create the well-proportioned Georgian façade. The house has a number of fine period chimney pieces. The interior has been completely transformed with high quality fittings and finishes throughout and careful re-planning to make best use of the accommodation.
Dating from 1820 the house now offers well-proportioned accommodation with many original restored features with the main entrance from a flat roofed open Tuscan porch with frieze supported by paired columns. High glazed double doors lead to the front reception hall with a restored Hopton Wood stone floor. Two sets of highly polished mahogany double doors lead off to the superb main reception rooms both overlooking the front gardens and open countryside beyond. There is a formal dining room and through a high open arch from the front hall, the glorious Staircase Hall with dog leg stone cantilever staircase sweeping to the first floor with a roof dome light over.
On the main ground floor is a generous hand built bespoke kitchen and separate laundry plus extensive cellars.
The house also enjoys a more modern Lodge currently used as an office and gym with garaging but with further potential.
Gardens lie to the front with open lawns enjoying a wonderful aspect over the adjoining farmland. To the side of the property accessed via double French doors from the drawing room are mature gardens with hedging and deep borders planted with successive flowering perennials. There is an area of mature mixed woodland included with the property. In all some 3.5 acres or thereabouts.
