A highly impressive six-bedroom detached period property, with stunning modern additions with a detached office in a central village position.

Elim Lodge is a stunning detached property, combining period elegance with striking contemporary style, that dates originally from the 18th century. Additions were made in recent years to create a beautiful and spacious family home, extending to more than 4,000 square feet of luxury accommodation. Upon entering, you are greeted immediately by the eclectic combination of the old and new. At your feet is the original well access which has been completely restored and now features lighting and a modern glass top. The open-plan sitting and dining area features to one side a large bay sash window, with the sitting area also including a woodburning stove, while to the other side there is a magnificent light and airy dining area and kitchen, with full-height windows and sliding glass doors opening onto the gardens. The kitchen includes attractive shaker-style units, with a central island and integrated appliances. The juxtaposition of original and contemporary continues into the hallway, with its ornate carved oak staircase leading to a dramatic galleried landing and large double-height windows welcoming plenty of natural light. There is also a comfortable drawing room with an open fireplace, and a cosy family room with a woodburning stove. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, including the well-proportioned principal bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom with chic contemporary fittings. There is a family bathroom on the first floor, while the second floor has two further double bedrooms as well as a shower room. Also on the second floor is an additional sitting room, usefully equipped with a kitchenette. EPC rating C.

The south-facing gardens at the rear of the house include an area of paved terracing and a level lawn, as well as border flowerbeds, established shrubs and mature trees.
