Four bedroom Regency style family home offering a fantastic opportunity for improvement with a workshop/studio and pony paddock.
Wincote Lodge is a charming family home which does require updating, offering a fantastic potential. The house is believed to date back to the 1870's having once been the home of John Douglas, the 9th Marquess of Queensberry. The house offers versatile family accommodation, set over two floors with many original features and is mostly surrounded by mature gardens, fruit trees and a kitchen garden offering a wide range of vegetables and produce.
On entering Wincote Lodge, the reception hall has high ceilings and an attractive tiled floor, off which is the drawing room with dual aspect windows, offering in plenty of light which overlooks the wonderful grounds. There is also a large inglenook fireplace with a Clearview Stove. The dining room has a bay window overlooking the gardens and is well suited for entertaining. The farmhouse style kitchen is situated in the older part of the house with beams which add to the character. The kitchen enjoys views across the Staffordshire countryside and has an adjoining conservatory and utility room with a useful cloakroom. Off the kitchen is access to the dry cellar which can be used as a wine cellar and useful food store.
On the first floor there are four good sized double bedrooms, the master bedroom with duel aspect windows and built in wardrobes, a dressing room which could either be a study or provide an en suite. The family bathroom is split into two with the toilet separate; the main bathroom area has a large double shower enclosure as well as a free standing bath and a wash hand basin.
Gardens and Grounds:
Wincote Lodge sits in beautifully established gardens, lawn areas, and a productive kitchen garden overlooking open countryside to the rear. There is an additional paddock which could be useful for a pony. The gravel driveway provides ample parking for a number of cars and provides access past the kitchen garden and conservatory. From here the main lawn area may be accessed.
The property benefits from a large workshop and studio with two floors, electricity to the workshop and the studio. There is no mains water, there is a tank in the workshop which is filled with a hosepipe periodically so the tap works. With the correct planning permission, this could lend itself to be additional accommodation/annexe.
