About this property

  • A very attractive Victorian lodge house which has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to provide a wonderful family home over two floors.

    West Lodge is nestled in a quiet and private location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and set within landscaped gardens with formal lawns, mature borders, an orchard, a swimming pool and woodland. There is also a lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside.

    Attractive internal features include three fireplaces with wood burning stoves, ceiling coving to the main rooms and a fine open-plan kitchen/dining room with painted units, quart worktops, ceiling down lighters, limestone tiled flooring and double doors out to the rear garden terrace. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and the principal bedroom enjoys a double aspect to the front and side, overlooking the surrounding countryside. The three bathrooms are all well appointed.

    There is a detached double garage next to the house, the first floor of which has been converted to provide a guest/nanny double bedroom with its own en suite shower room.

    The gardens lie predominantly to the south-east of the house and are fenced to the wood. The swimming pool area is terraced and landscaped and gated to the garden with a pool house housing the air source heating system and other equipment. In addition to the gardens, there is about 1.3 acres of woodland.

For me, this is a lovely family home, beautifully presented and very special because of the convenient, yet rural-like setting, away from neighbours.
