About this property

  • Built in 1994 of local Chilmark stone with a clay tiled roof, Auvinya Lodge sits in a peaceful and elevated position, with exceptional far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Entrance from the drive is into a hall with parquet flooring. The large drawing room has glass sliding doors on to a raised terrace, taking in the expansive views, and a stone fireplace with a woodburning stove. The sitting room, currently used as a home office, leads through to a conservatory, again taking in the scenery. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of wall and floor units to one end and a partial dividing wall, which could potentially be reduced/removed, separating it from the breakfast room, with a large bay window. The utility room is adjacent to the kitchen. It has plumbing for a washing machine, storage cupboards, a sink and also a door into the garden. A dining room, study and cloakroom/lavatory complete the ground floor.

    Upstairs is the dual-aspect principal bedroom, with dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The property is approached from the village lane, via a five-bar gate, on to a gravel drive with parking for several cars in front of the double garages. The stand-out feature of this property is the stunning outlook over the surrounding landscape and this can be enjoyed from the split level terraces and the garden, with a lawn that runs down to a ha-ha, giving the impression that the garden stretches on without interruption.
