An outstanding family home offering stylish accommodation, set in an acre plot in a convenient semi-rural location with far-reaching South Downs views.
Cuerden Lodge is a substantial five bedroom family home which was the subject of extensive refurbishment and extension in 2015, attractively characterised in the New England style with part-weatherboarded elevations and wood framed double glazed windows. The accommodation, which totals over 3,200 sq ft, is well arranged providing versatile reception space ideal for entertaining and enjoying exceptional natural light.
The floor plans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the house; of particular note is the bespoke handmade cabinetry throughout the house and the well appointed bathrooms with classic-style contemporary suites. Features of note include two working fireplaces and a wood burner in the entrance hall; the flooring is a mix of slate, oak, limestone and carpet.
There are two formal reception rooms lying off the reception hall. The drawing room is particularly elegant, with an arched stone fire surround and double doors opening to the garden.
The superb vaulted kitchen and dining room provides a bright and appealing family space with limestone tiled floors, two-zone under floor heating and handmade bespoke painted and oak units complemented by a central island, polished granite worktops and range of integrated appliances; it is served by a well-fitted utility room.
Lying beyond the kitchen is a dual aspect guest bedroom/playroom with oak floor and en suite shower room.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including an impressive master suite with dressing area and bathroom. The three remaining bedrooms all have views to the South Downs and are served by a family bathroom. The accommodation is completed by a versatile second floor attic room/office.
Cuerden Lodge enjoys an enviable semi-rural location, approached over a private lane with open countryside to the front. The house is accessed from the lane via a wooden five bar gate which opens to a gravelled drive with ample parking, in turn leading to a timber framed car port. To the front is an area of garden laid mainly to lawn and bordered by hedging.
To the rear is a sheltered stone courtyard terrace with outside lighting offering a wonderful area for al fresco dining. There is a useful outbuilding used as a workshop/garden store, and beyond here a large children's climbing frame. The main garden is laid to lawn, securely enclosed by dog fencing, bordered by mature hedgerows and with a number of trees including oak. It provides a blank canvas to create an impressive garden with space for a tennis court or swimming pool; in all about one acre.
