Surrounded by greenbelt countryside and close to convenient transport is this four bedroom detached Victorian Lodge. Dating back to 1895 when it was constructed as the lodge house for a neighbouring estate, the property has been remodelled in recent years to a high standard including double glazed timber framed windows throughout. Many of the ground floor rooms have attractive solid oak parquet wooden floors and the interiors are mostly decorated in light, neutral colours to further enhance the feeling of light and space. The triple-aspect sitting room is of an excellent size with bi-fold doors overlooking the garden and fields beyond, a marble fireplace with wood burning stove and fitted storage. The well-proportioned kitchen features a bay window with window seat, French doors opening to the garden and a good range of wall and base units in traditional painted cabinetry with solid oak worktops, providing extensive preparation space. There are a number of integrated appliances including an instant boiling water tap, a Hive remote energy system as well as space for a range oven. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a family room adjacent that could equally be used as a fourth bedroom. There is also a shower room on the ground floor. The two further bedrooms are situated on the first floor and have use of a family bathroom; the master bedroom is particularly attractive with a vaulted ceiling. The upstairs landing is of a good size and provides additional space for a study area if required
