Substantial family home in beautiful and well enclosed south-facing gardens.
Situated in a tucked away position in the popular village of Chelwood Gate, Ashdown Lodge is an attractive Tudor-style modern home built by Berkeley Homes in 1985. The house offers well presented, spacious and versatile accommodation extending to over 2,900 square feet, with the potential to create a single or double storey self-contained annexe in the eastern wing of the house.
There are two formal reception rooms, the dining room and the sitting room. The sitting room is an elegant room, with a marble fireplace and sliding doors drawing in the light and opening to the terrace and garden; a cosy snug is an ideal TV or play room. The kitchen has a range of units, ample space for a breakfast table and doors opening to the conservatory: an attractive space with a lovely outlook to the garden. A useful utility room, cloakroom and ground floor bedroom with en suite wet room complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are four bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor in the main part of the house, including a generous principal bedroom with en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms, served by a further bathroom, are accessed via the secondary staircase.
Ashdown Lodge is approached from Beaconsfield Road over a shared private driveway, and is well-screened from the road by a bank of mature trees and shrubs. A timber five-bar gate opens to a private parking area ahead of the house and detached double garage. The garden is of particular note, lying predominantly to the south and east of the house and being beautifully tended, laid to lawn and dotted with colourful, well-stocked borders. There is a large paved terrace adjoining the rear of the house, and a kitchen garden with raised beds; fencing, laurel hedging and mature trees including oak and silver birch give a good degree of privacy. In all, about 0.6 of an acre.
