David James have the pleasure of offering this exclusive extended Grade II listed split level detached house which was originally the gatehouse to Royal Hunting Lodge of King Charles II and Nell Gwynn. The Old Lodge is set within the former Royal hunting estate of 700 acres of beautiful parkland, yet only four miles north of Nottingham city centre. The Lodge has been cleverly converted and extended to provide family accommodation with idyllic views across the adjacent farmland.

The main entrance is situated at the front of the property with leaded panelled door providing access to an entrance hall which is tastefully decorated with coving to the ceiling and black and white chequered tiled floor. Panelled doors provide access to bedrooms two, three and kitchen with open access to the adjoining dining room.

Bedroom two is a double bedroom with two secondary double glazed windows overlooking both the front and side elevations. There is a useful in-built double wardrobe with mirrored doors and is well decorated with coving to the ceiling. Panelled door provides access to a fully tiled en-suite bathroom/Wc with modern white suite and double ended panelled spa bath. A very bright and pleasant room with two secondary double glazed windows to the side and rear elevation and additional light provided by a feature skylight window.

Bedroom three also a double bedroom, with dual aspect secondary glazed windows to the front and side elevations, again well decorated with coving to the ceiling and panelled door providing access to an en-suite shower room/Wc. The ensuite is again fully tiled with a modern white suite with shower cubicle with glazed shower door and plumbed in mains pressure shower. Natural light provided by secondary double glazed window to the side elevation.

The kitchen has been refitted with a traditional range of base and eye level units in keeping with The Lodge and complimented by white ceramic tiled splashbacks and natural slate tiled floor. A beamed ceiling and white ceramic sink continues with the traditional theme and the modern touches are provided by under cupboard halogen downlighting and a range of integrated stainless steel appliances to include four ring gas hob, canopy with extractor and electric fan assisted oven and grill. There is open access to the adjoining dining area with a step providing a natural divide and panelled door leading to a utility room with wall units and work surfaces with space and provision and plumbing for an automatic washing machine.

The dining room is the start of the new extension and is a very impressive introduction with a feature vaulted ceiling, part glazed, providing a tremendous amount of natural light and exposed roof trusses. A natural slate tiled floor continues through from the kitchen and external windows and doors provide access to both side elevations.

French doors provide access to the lounge which is extremely spacious with four windows and French doors with windows to both sides provide access to a balcony with wrought iron railings which are positioned to take full advantage of the open aspect views across the adjacent fields The focal point of the room is an open, recessed livin flame burning stone effect gas fire set within a stainless steel fireplace with raised black marble hearth and panel. The room is well decorated with coving to the ceiling and rustic Oak laminate floor.

Open balustrade and staircase leads down to the lower ground floor accommodation which solely consists of the master bedroom suite incorporating a bedroom, walk in-wardrobe and fully tiled en-suite shower room/Wc with modern white suite with mains pressure shower and heated towel rail. The master bedroom extends the full width of the extension with two windows and French doors overlooking and leading to the rear garden. The property benefits from gas central heating with combination gas boiler providing instant domestic hot water. There is a combination of sealed and secondary unit double glazing and the added security of a burglar alarm system.

Outside, an electric remote controlled double wooden gates gives access to a pebbled drive which provides additional off street parking. There is also an impressive larger than average, single detached garage which has been constructed to be kept in keeping with The Lodge with rendered walls, pitched slate roof, double timber doors and both power and lighting. The main garden is situated at the right hand side of The Lodge with a good size lawn with borders, shrubs and established trees. The left hand side consists of the drive and garage with further lawn and vegetable plot. The main focal point of the garden is situated at the rear of the property which consists of a walled patio/sun terrace with paviers and slate chippings incorporating a raised water feature with wall mounted lion head fountain and seating.

To summarise, The Lodge is extremely deceptive from the front elevation and it is not only the accommodation but the garden as well that need to be viewed to be fully appreciated. Both myself and the team that have visited the property while preparing the marketing information for this property, have all been more than impressed with the character and the accommodation this property has to offer.
