    About this property

    • Park Lodge dates back to about 1840, having originally served as a gate house to Coker Court, a fine 15th century manor house in the village nearby. The original house has attractive local Hamstone and Staffordshire brick elevations under a decorative tiled roof and the new extension joins the original building seamlessly, with part Ham stone and part oak timber cladding. Having recently been significantly extended, the building now provides spacious, well arranged accommodation over three floors, with a nice mix of period features including fireplaces. Sought after contemporary elements such as new oak flooring, air source heat pump, under floor heating and modern insulation can be found throughout the home. Notable rooms include the fabulous family size kitchen with hand built kitchen and island, electric AGA and bi-fold doors framing the delightful countryside views. A well appointed utility room houses white goods and boot room storage options along with adjoining shower room and WC. The sitting room has an open fireplace and added feature of a 'well' which can be viewed through the bespoke glass and lighting. The water can be drawn from outside to please the gardeners.

      On the first floor is a luxurious principal bedroom with sizeable en suite, a further bedroom bedroom with en suite feature double basin and larger shower. Two further bedrooms share a superbly appointed family shower room.

      The property is approached from the country road through an impressive Hamstone gateway with pillars and gates providing separate vehicular and pedestrian access points. The private drive is laid with gravel and leads to the Heritage style oak framed double garage to the east of the plot which leads to a private area of woodland. Additional land to the north is available to purchase, consisting of an attractive field of about 5.93 acres which slopes gently down to the lane where there is separate access.

      The garden is mostly laid to lawn with an attractive stone wall retaining the upper, south side of the garden which leads up to a larger raised area of lawn bordering the Coker Court parkland. On the eastern flank of the house leading out from the kitchen is a large terrace overlooking farmland and the village below.
