About this property

    Caunton Lodge Farm occupies a delightful position, set within mature grounds of 3.5 acres, offering magnificent 360 degree countryside views. The accommodation is split across two dwellings, the main farm house, holding three double bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms and a large, very well equipped detached annexe with two bedrooms and generous ground floor space.

    Caunton Lodge Farm offers a rare opportunity to own a self-sufficient property. A wind turbine produces electricity which charges storage batteries with a backup generator, there is an oil tank for the heating system, a bore hole for the water supply and septic tank drainage.

    To the front of the property, an oak framed storm porch leads into the dual aspect entrance hall, laid with engineered oak flooring, leading through to the inner hallway via glazed double doors. Off the hallway to the west elevation there is a fine, 40ft lounge / dining room with a floor to ceiling window to the front, French doors out to the rear, solid oak flooring, a triple aspect view and an attractive, brick built fireplace with an inset Clear View log burner.

    The well-appointed, two storey annexe is detached from the main house and offers over 2000sqft of accommodation, making this dwelling ideal for multi-generational living. To the ground floor there is an impressive, triple aspect sitting room which is fully vaulted, displaying exposed beams, engineered oak flooring and an Italian Gruppo Piazzetta log burner. Off the main entrance hall sits a WC, a ground floor double bedroom with en suite wet room and a small, fitted kitchen which is semi open plan to a dining area, leading through to a fully glazed garden room via bi-fold doors. The garden room offers a pleasant seating area, with views across the garden and is also accessible via the ground floor bedroom.

    The entirety of the first floor level is occupied by the wonderful, 30ft, triple aspect principal bedroom suite, displaying oak beams, with French doors out to a Juliette balcony, fitted wardrobes, a seating area and an en suite shower room.

    A sweeping drive leads to the front of the property where there is ample parking space and attractive box hedging with central, recently planted Cyprus trees. A fenced pond sits to the east aspect with a central island and duck housing, adjacent to a small orchard area. The formal gardens are positioned to the rear of the house with a walled boundary, holding a full width flagstone patio, a lawned area and general shrubbery and planting to the borders. An area of paddock land sits behind the formal garden and is fenced with a post and rail boundary. The large Outbuilding to the north aspect is split into a workshop area and tank storage, although could be used / converted for many other uses subject to planning permission.

    Caunton Lodge Farm is completely self-sufficient. A wind turbine produces electricity which charges storage batteries with a backup generator, there is an oil tank for the heating
    system, a bore hole for the water supply and septic tank
