Grand Lodge was originally part of the Beaudesert Estate, owned by the current vendors since 2008 having been carefully restored and enhanced over the years to create the luxury high specification home it is today. It was awarded the High Commendation under the Alan Key Award for Excellent in Architectural Technology in 2014.
A beautiful entrance hallway has a unique feature of the original doors having been retained and sunken into the walls, just one of the many highlights of what is to come! A staircase with glass balustrade leads up to a mezzanine gallery area which leads off to the landing.
The ground floor living space features two excellent reception rooms, one of which doubles up as a cinema room, both with large glass windows offering wonderful views over the surrounding gardens.
A stunning white gloss kitchen has a full range of fitted appliances and a matching island unit that extends into a breakfast table.
There is also a separate office/study, formal dining room and a gym all of which enjoy those wonderful surrounding views.
On the first floor are five double bedrooms, a selection of en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom also has its own dressing room.
Externally the property is approached by a secure gated driveway with extensive lawned gardens either side. For those equestrian enthusiasts, there is a paddock and stables, and outdoor heated kennels.
There is also a potential annex, currently used as storage but could be converted into living space (subject to relevant consents).
The gardens really are a delight and have been landscaped to a high standard. A composite decking area has a sunken hot tub, an ice shower and feature sauna. There is also a bar area, barbeque with fridge and outdoor pizza oven make a great entertaining area for families and children, who will especially enjoy the sunken trampoline!
Some of the trees have Tree Preservation Orders.
The solar panels on the roof are owned by the vendors and will remain at the property.
