EQUESTRIAN - The Grove Lodge is located at the end of a drive in a discreetlocation off an attractive rural lane. Originally late Georgian/

early Victorian in style, the oldest parts of the house are thought to date back to the middle of the 19th century.

The house and land formed part of the estate belonging to the Earls of Clarendon who used it as the gamekeeper’s lodge. The reception hall and dining room constitute the oldest part of the property and the more recent extensions have been built on both sides of the original rooms. Spanning the width

of the house, the drawing room is dual aspect and features a large bay window as well as a fireplace. The kitchen also has a

large window overlooking the terrace, rose garden, fields and woodland beyond. The utility room adjoins the kitchen and has an external door.

Other rooms opening off the reception hall include the spacious study and dining room with an attractive feature fireplace.

Stairs from the hall lead down to the cellar and up to the first floor where there are four bedrooms including the master which has an en suite bathroom and dressing room which could be used as a fifth bedroom; it has a door to the landing.

The master bedroom is full of light in large part thanks to the bay window complementing the one on the floor below. One of the other bedrooms, currently used as a dressing room, has a Jack and Jill shower room opening onto the landing whilst two further bedrooms make use of the family bathroom. All bedrooms offer views across the bucolic landscape. The fully-boarded loft provides ample storage space and access is gained via two separate entrances.

This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
