Full description

Coton Lodge is a beautifully presented detached period property situated in the picturesque and rural Hamlet from which it takes its name. The original property has been tastefully and considerably extended and this, together with a robust programme of renovation and improvements over recent years, has created a most desirable and impressive family home.

The Property - The original Lodge sat in formal grounds of around one acre, however the present owners have added two further considerable additions quite recently in the form of adjoining cottage and coach house with garage, car ports and accommodation within, which has now created a very spacious and adaptable family home, and with the addition of a further paddock, this fine period residence now occupies a plot of just over two acres, or thereabouts.
The property is now accessed via a fully double glazed reception hall, which gives a light entrance and seating area, and from here you can access the main house and the new wing, thus giving the flexibility of having a single residence, or a family home with a good size two storey adjoining cottage.
The main family accommodation affords; reception hall, three reception rooms, being a sitting room, a dining room, and a study/playroom, the study being the former entrance hall, complete with period door which has the original lock and key. There is a spacious and well appointed kitchen/family breakfast room, with access to the outside covered area, which in turn gives access to a single garage.
To the first floor there is a landing, a master bedroom with dressing room and balcony, there are two further double bedrooms, all having views over countryside, and there is the main family bathroom.
The adjoining cottage has an entrance lobby, a lounge, a kitchen, a utility/study, a shower/cloakroom, first floor landing, and two double bedrooms served by one additional first floor bathroom.
To the side of the property is a recently constructed coach house creating a further garage and two car ports, and also incorporates living accommodation in the form of a kitchen with a lobby, a cloakroom, and a first floor cinema room, although this could be converted to other uses or additional bedrooms if required.
Outside there are formal gardens and a paddock extending to just over two acres.

The lodge has been renovated to a high standard and has retained much charm and character. The property is fully double glazed and has oil fired radiator heating.
We strongly advise early internal inspection to fully appreciate what is on offer here.
