About this property

  • Believed to date from the 17th Century, Frenches Lodge is an attractive Grade II Listed home, with later additions. Unusually for a property of its age, the rooms are well proportioned with generous ceiling heights and large windows. The accommodation is laid out over two floors and comprises an entrance hall, from which a step up leads into a most impressive sitting room with an open fire place with an attractive brick surround. From here there are double doors out into the garden. There is a good size dining room with a parquet floor, and which leads into the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a range of shaker style units, along with a two oven Aga and a pantry. From here there is access into a utility room and also into the conservatory. A further snug, along with a cloakroom complete the ground floor
    accommodation. Upstairs there is a generous landing from which there are five bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom.

    To the front of the house is a gravel driveway with access to the garage and garden stores. To the rear of the house the attractive garden gently slopes behind the house. It has been mainly laid to lawn with a range of mature shrub and herbaceous borders. In addition there is a separate outbuilding which was formally two stables and a tack room.

This lovely cottage has all the things you don't expect from a thatched cottage - good ceiling heights and generous room proportions. It has a really lovely feel to it.
