Tylney Lodge, the former entrance to the
Tylney Hall Estate and House, hidden behind
imposing gates, is now a fine combination of a
beautifully restored Grade II listed property and a
well-designed significant extended wing.
The original architect of the Lodge, R Selden
Wornum was fascinated by the features and
crenulations of the Hall and has miniaturised the
design particularly on the tall brick chimneys.
The main single storey residence is divided
almost equally in two halves. The late 19th
century section retains many period features
including quarry tiled floors, a octagonal
bay window with pierced ironwork window
handles and feature fireplaces, but it has been
comprehensively modernised and enhanced.
The extensive modern wing of the lodge was
completed recently by the present vendors.
In the new wing is a first floor area with velux
windows to provide either a sixth bedroom,
games room or office.
There are fine views from the accommodation
to the rear over the stone terrace to the garden
and extensive grounds beyond.
The property is entered through electronically
controlled gates hung from the Grade II listed
pillars with finials and opening onto the gravel
drive with parking and turning giving access to
the brick double garage.
The part glazed oak front door opens to the
reception hall, with a part quarry tiled floor and
wood burner housed within a period fireplace.
Doors lead to two double bedrooms, one with
a blue and white tiled fireplace surround and
en-suite. Also off the hall is the charming sitting
room with an open fireplace housing a log
basket. The five window bay with seating would
have been the original gate-keepers 'look-out'.
To the rear is the superb kitchen/breakfast
room with computer controlled glazed ceiling
windows and oak bi-fold doors and windows
opening onto the stone flagged terrace allowing
spectacular views over the gardens. Apart
from the space for a large table, the surfaces in
kitchen area with its central island are granite.
This is fully fitted with amongst other features
- Wine cooler
- Two full height refrigerators
- Double oven
- Steamer oven
- Warming drawer
- Electric hob
- Pull-out larder cupboard
- Sink with colander drainer
Another feature of this property is the unusually
large utility room (12'11" x 12'9") ideal for
accommodating the family laundry.
Two more reception rooms face the garden with
doors opening onto the terrace, the drawing
room with along one wall a beautifully carved
oak dresser/bookshelf and the family room,
contrasting with the rest of the property with
open rafters and a raised brick fireplace housing
a log basket.
It is from here that the new bedroom wing
is accessed comprising two similar double
bedrooms with Vilroy Boch ensuites and beyond
the master bedroom suite, the main bedroom
being exceptionally light with floor to ceiling
windows, dressing room and ensuite Vilroy Boch
bathroom. These three rooms enjoy unrestricted
views to the garden and through French
windows in each room access onto the terrace.
Stairs lead up to Bedroom 6/Games Room.
