Property Description

Full description

Thorngrove Lodge is a charming detached former Victorian lodge house built of stone and rendered elevations under a tile roof. The house has been cleverly adapted and extended in the last two years to provide comfortable and practical accommodation. The recent extensions include the oak timbered Dormer bathroom, the oak framed porch and the oak windows and French window kitchen extension.

On the ground floor there is a spacious living room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room is well finished and is a superb space offering ample room for cooking, eating and relaxing with oak French doors leading onto the gardens. In addition there is a utility room and downstairs loo.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom all with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Thorngrove Lodge occupies a peaceful position on the edge of Gillingham and enjoys the benefit of both a delightful rural setting and convenient access to the town.

Gillingham town centre is located just under a mile away and offers a wide range of shops and supermarkets including Waitrose, Asda and Lidl. There is a direct train service to London Waterloo which takes about two hours and there are also superb road links with the A303 lying just 5 miles to the north.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools which include a well reputed mixed comprehensive and sixth form college in Gillingham. Private schools in the area include Port Regis, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Sandroyd, Clayesmore, Bryanston and Millfield.

Thorngrove Lodge is approached via a driveway with a parking space adjacent to a single garage with power. The property is surrounded by mature trees including a fir and oak trees, and lies adjacent to the sycamore lined alley leading to Thorngrove Hall and the Thorngrove garden Centre.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are surrounded by open fields providing a lovely backdrop to the property
