    About this property

    • Court Lodge is a superb example of a Grade II* listed hall house dating from the 15th century, with later additions including Arts and Crafts influences by Baillie Scott. The present owners have sympathetically updated and enhanced the property to a high standard complimenting the period features with modern and stylish embellishments. The well-proportioned accommodation provides versatile living for both formal and informal entertaining and the gardens provide an attractive backdrop.

      The principal reception rooms comprise an impressive double height vaulted drawing room with exposed timbers, a magnificent inglenook fireplace and a galleried landing; the dining/sitting room is superbly proportioned with oak paneled walls and an open fireplace.

      The bespoke kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a stylish range of wall and base cupboards and granite work surfaces. There are integral appliances and a four oven Aga. The room is double aspect with direct access to the rear garden.

      A study with fitted office furniture, a cloakroom and a external utility room complete the ground floor.

      The cellar provides a useful store room.

      The first floor accommodation comprises four bedrooms. Two have modern en suite bathrooms and have either an impressive vaulted or part vaulted ceiling. There is a well-appointed bathroom with separate W.C.

      The house is approached over a gated gravel driveway providing parking and leading to the quadruple garage block. There is additional parking to the front of the house where a paved and ironstone path leads to the front door, flanked by lavender.

      The wonderful gardens provide an attractive backdrop to the property with wide swathes of lawn, some majestic trees, well stocked shrub borders and a formal garden with symmetrical beds and an avenue of specimen trees. There is a large flagstone terrace by the wisteria clad veranda on the house, providing an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. Within the garden is a tennis court and the whole area measures about 1.56 acres.
