About this property
Lower Lodge is a wonderful family house- once a lodge to the neighbouring Alderbury House, it has been entirely rebuilt and extended by the current owners. They have made use of the highest quality materials and exceptional interior design to create a very comfortable home which has the character of a period property with the convenience and efficiency of a modern house.
The Barn and Annexe
The Barn provides a flexible live/work space. It is centred around a magnificent, double height living space with a mezzanine and French door opening out to a walled garden. In addition there is a kitchen and shower room with a store room, or bedroom on the first floor. To the far side is a superb office space.
An adjoining outbuilding has been converted to provide an annexe with a kitchen/sitting room on the ground floor with two bedrooms including a bunkroom for visiting children and a shower room on the first floor.
Gardens and Outbuildings
Lower Lodge is approached through double gates which open onto a gravel driveway. There is a parking and turning area to the front of the house and the drive continues round to access the barn and adjacent garaging and stores..
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and are predominantly laid to lawn. To the south west and south east of the house there are extensive terraces, framed by box hedges and well designed borders. Beyond the barn is a part-walled garden, which could provide a private space for an annexe or a would be the ideal location for a swimming pool. Further on, is a kitchen garden with well-stocked raised beds.
