Vine Lodge is a stunning period house built out of beautiful Kentish ragstone in the early 1800s. It was formerly a school before being converted into apartments in the 1980s.
This top floor apartment has been recently renovated by the current owners to a high standard and offers a lovely bright and contemporary space that still retains plenty of character.
To access the apartment you must enter through the grand main entrance and take the main stairs up to the first floor. The apartment is entered via a private door with your own internal hallway and staircase. The top of the stairs opens out into a huge open plan living/dining room with character beams and a feature round window, a great space for entertaining.
To the right hand side is a large double bedroom and a wonderful bathroom fitted with a white suite with a shower above the bath. Chamfered white wall tiles, grey floor tiles and contrasting wooden panelling provides a perfect mix of contemporary and traditional styling. Over to the far side of the flat you will find a 2nd bedroom large enough for a double bed with a handy 2nd WC opposite.
The kitchen is a good-size and is fitted with modern white units and contemporary steel handles including an integrated dishwasher. There is a wooden floor and a matching wooden worktop and the walls are finished with chic blue tiles. A breakfast bar has been incorporated in front of the window providing a handy space for informal dining or a place to work from home and offers stunning views out to Knole Park and across the North Downs.
The whole apartment is immaculately presented and there are numerous eaves cupboards together with large cupboard behind the stairs providing plenty of storage space.
Vine Lodge is approached via an impressive pillared entrance which leads to a herringbone brick drive providing off road parking. Flat K has one designated parking space and a further informal guest space which is shared with another apartment.
To the rear of the building are attractive communal grounds featuring an area of lawn interspersed with trees including Cherry and Silver Birch and beds stocked with a variety of shrubs and flowers.
