Full description

Tenure: Freehold

'Big, warm and friendly', that's how the current owner describes Lilyholt Lodge, a magnificent family home just outside Benwick. When the owners first laid eyes upon the expansive plot of land, they had to have it. It was just what they were looking for. A huge plot that would allow them to build their dream family home in the village they already loved. As soon as they secured the plot, grand plans began. Working with an expert architect, the owners have created a spacious home that's bright, airy and perfectly designed for family life.

From the outset, it's clear the house is impressive. Despite being tucked away down a quiet country lane, it's electric black metal gates, with Lilyholt Lodge sculpted across the middle, are an immediate clue of its magnitude. Once the gates have opened for you, a long drive takes you straight up to the house where there's plenty of space to make numerous cars. Built in red brick and with a wide central porch, framed by two columns, the house has a classic exterior that seems almost period, despite having been built only 14 years ago. It's also surrounded by expanses of open fields, which make it stand out and look even more tall and impressive.

As you would expect in a home of this size, it has a central open hallway that leads to all the rooms, and a classic symmetrical staircase. Beyond the entrance, there are a whole host of rooms to keep all the family happy. A large kitchen with a central island and plenty of room for a dining table is ideal for big family meals and hosting dinner parties with friends. There's also a formal dining room for those special occasions. The great sitting room has particularly large windows that are perfectly positioned to provide gorgeous views across the grounds and open fields from the comfort of a cosy sofa or armchair. There's also a separate annex with a games room and office, which could be transformed into a manner of different rooms to generously suit a family. Upstairs, there are six double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a big family bathroom. Despite its size and grandeur, it has a peaceful and almost quaint setting, making it a welcoming and pleasant place to call home. It has panoramic views across the countryside and you can literally see for miles across the open fields. But it's also sheltered by behind large trees providing privacy from the lane. The grounds and gardens themselves are a much loved by the current owners. There's a one-acre garden with elm trees, fruit trees and a marvellous oak tree, and a five acres of surrounding fields, all belonging to the property.
