Frazers Lodge was built in the mid 20th Century with the focus on providing large living spaces, bright and airy accommodation, the majority of which takes full advantage of the southerly aspect and beautiful views across its own garden to Queen Camel Church and the Corton Ridge and countryside beyond. A generous hall with a tiled floor gives access to a grand sitting room/dining room with parquet floor, ornamental coving and freeze, fireplace and French casements direct out onto the terrace. As you enter this room you become aware of the spectacular views, in turn you access the kitchen/breakfast/garden room which also takes full advantage of the southerly views and access to the terrace. This area provides wonderful family living space, very much in keeping with 21st Century tastes. The kitchen is very well fitted and equipped and includes a four oven Aga. To the rear of the kitchen is the utility room, a second cloakroom and freezer room. The bedroom accommodation is presently formed of four bedroom suites, each with its own en-suite bathroom or shower room. There is a fifth bedroom which has direct access to the terrace and also a small study. Purchasers might like to be aware that the study is plumbed for services to be converted to an independent kitchen. If bedroom 5 is used as a living room and the study converted back to a kitchen, this section of the house together with bedroom 4 and its bathroom can be used as a self-contained annex. As this area has its own hallway and external door it would be ideal for a dependant relative, as has been the case in the past or for older children who would like to live semi independently.
A five bar gate opens to a tarmac parking and turning area at the front of the property, all with security lighting. There is a garage and machinery store to one side with a woodshed and compost bins beyond. Most of the garden lies on the south side of the residence where a large terrace and entertaining area overlooks a rose garden. Beyond, a sweep of lawn is shaped by well stocked and colourful borders. On either side of the property is a stand of mature trees set with spring bulbs and specimen shrubs. The effect is to provide a lightly wooded setting providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion. Walkways run through the wooded areas, particularly on the eastern boundary where a path meanders amongst some fine oak trees. There is an excellent kitchen garden fenced and enclosed by an established beech hedge, screened storage area with greenhouse and workshop/machinery store.
