A beautifully renovated country house in a private rural setting with gardens and paddock

The property

Hardwick Lodge, which is unlisted, is approached via a long drive culminating in wrought iron electric gates with brick gate piers opening onto a generous gravelled parking area to the front of the house. Built of mellow red brick with a slate roof, the house spans three storeys and has undergone an extended period of sympathetic renovation.

The front door opens into a hall, which divides the formal and family sides of the house. To the left, is a library, which is adjacent to the sitting room which, in turn, leads through to a spacious drawing room with panoramic views of the gardens and grounds. To the right of the hall there is a through room, which could double as a formal dining room or snug and this leads through to a 32 foot long breakfast kitchen, with a central island, granite work surfaces, a twin Belfast sink and a range cooker. Running from the kitchen is a sunroom with French doors, a utility room and a boot room, which has a staircase leading to an office above.

Stairs rising from the kitchen lead to a family room with a WC and shower room as well as a connecting door to the office.

Two staircases service the bedroom accommodation. One, rising from the dining room, accesses bedrooms 3 and 4, both of which have en suites. The main staircase rises opposite the sitting room and leads to the principal bedroom with en suite and bedroom 2, which doubles as a dressing room and has a separate bathroom. On the second floor, there are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and storeroom.

Outside

The gravel parking area to the front of the house is flanked by lawn and an orchard in which there is a dilapidated brick outbuilding.

The rear garden is laid to lawn with a paved terrace running along the rear elevation with post and rail fencing separating the paddock beyond which is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). A 3 bay oak framed garage and double car port has recently been erected. (WP/19/00071/FUL).
