Katrine Lodge dates from around the turn of the century and has subsequently been extended by the current owners by local architect Michael Conoley, to create an impressive family home with versatile reception rooms. The use of oak and glass blends with mellow brick elevations and the principal reception rooms feature French doors onto the south-facing terrace and gardens. The main accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to over 4300 sq ft. The large porch opens into the vaulted reception hall with flagstone floor and oak staircase, with all the main rooms leading off the spacious hall. The modern, well-equipped kitchen features integrated Miele appliances and granite work surfaces, and opens onto the conservatory/ breakfast room. The sitting room has classic proportions, a modern inset fireplace, large bay window, and doors onto the terrace. A family room also has doors onto the south-facing terrace and the dining room and study are both light and airy. The double aspect principal bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling, free-standing bath, generous en suite shower room and dressing room. A second bedroom suite features an en suite shower room and fitted cupboards and wardrobes. Two further double bedrooms, bedroom five and a family bathroom with fireplace and roll-top bath completes the accommodation. Please note that there is planning permission (Reference WA2014/0709) for a sympathetic two storey extension at Katrine Lodge. This has been designed by Michael Conoley, to create an additional bedroom suite, drawing room and study. EPC Rating D.
This property has 1.4 acres of land.
Katrine Lodge is approached through an electric five bar gate along a gravel driveway leading to a turning area with ample parking. There are beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the property with several areas of level lawn, bordered by mature shrubs, laurel hedging, old brick walls and established trees, offering excellent privacy. A large stone south-facing terrace runs along the rear of the house and is ideal for entertaining, with the garden accessed via doors from the family room, sitting room and conservatory. The double garage has electric up and over doors and a generous storage area above. Potential exists, subject to planning permission, to convert this space into additional accommodation or a games room/gymnasium. A single garage/garden store provides extra storage. A fully fenced, well-maintained tennis court is tucked into one sheltered corner of the plot. A side gate allows pedestrian access onto Old Frensham Lane. The fully level garden extends in all to just under 1.4 acres.
Katrine Lodge is located in a desirable no-through road on the edge of Lower Bourne. An entrance to the Bourne Woods at the end of Clumps Road, provides scope for walking, running and dog walks, practically on the doorstep. Local facilities at The Bourne, less than a mile away, include: South Farnham School, a general store, post office, pharmacy, doctors surgery, veterinary clinic, three good local pubs, nursery school, church, village green with football and cricket clubs, tennis courts and playground. Within about 1 ½ miles there is a butcher, bakery, tennis and squash club with gym, Weydon School, Farnham Sixth Form College, and recreation/playground. The Georgian town of Farnham offers a great choice of pubs, bars and restaurants including Bills, Côte, Pizza Express & Zizzi, along with an extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. There are excellent local private schools including Edgeborough, about 0.5 mile away and Frensham Heights School, under 2 miles away. There is easy access to the surrounding countryside with walking, cycling, fishing with riding at Alice Holt Forest and Frensham Ponds, and sailing at the Great Pond. Communications are excellent with the nearby M3 and A3 linking to London and the south coast.
Leaving Farnham on the A287 towards Frensham and Hindhead, continue into Lower Bourne, bearing left just after the local store into Old Frensham Road. Continue along this lane with the Bourne Green on the left hand side. Follow the road up to the top of the hill, and just after the right turn for Gong Hill Drive, turn immediately left into Clumps Road. Katrine Lodge is the first driveway on the left.Read all
