A handsome, detached 5-bedroom lodge in the most enchanting setting amidst the beautiful Farway Valley, surrounded by grounds of approximately 2 acres.
Netherton Lodge is a detached former gate house to Netherton Hall, a Jacobean country mansion which is a third of a mile distant, and has origins dating back possibly to the late Victorian era. The property has a particularly handsome front facade with high gables and ornate barge boards with traditional local flintstone elevations under a tiled roof.
In recent years it has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of enlargement and improvement, all of which has aided in creating the roomy home of character we find today. These works have included the addition of a wing to the southerly side of the property which offers a ground floor guest suite which could easily be converted into a self-contained wing, perfect for a large family, extended family or those with limited mobility. There is also a generous sun room to the rear giving the property four reception rooms and therefore a high degree of flexibility to the arrangement of the living and dining spaces.
The accommodation is presented in beautiful order, having been the subject of a considerable programme of work which included, in addition to the South wing, the installation of a beautiful country kitchen with granite work surfaces and Aga, as well as redecoration throughout. Worthy of particular mention is the sitting room which has a bay window to the front as well as French doors on to a terrace, and all the rooms take advantage of wonderful views over the beautiful gardens.
To the first floor is a generous landing area with feature exposed timbers, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom including the master bedroom which is sizeable with a dual aspect offering views across the grounds. A further set of stairs then rise to the second floor bedroom with dressing area and bathroom, and this has wonderful views over the neighbouring countryside.
