This appealing stone built, Grade II listed former lodge house is understood to date back to around 1792 and was originally part of the Heathfield Park Estate. The Lodge, which shows many fine architectural features, was designed by well-known architect of the time John Crunden, who worked with Humphrey Repton on the landscaping of Heathfield Park and has a later extension in keeping, in addition to a sympathetically designed detached double garage which has a large studio room over, with the benefit of planning permission granted to extend further to create an annexe.
An imposing entrance has wide steps leading up to an arched portico with bench seats. A triple aspect sitting room has a marble fireplace and double doors to the dining room. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall cabinets, whilst the utility room has direct access to the terrace and garden. The bedroom accommodation comprises a double aspect master bedroom with access to the terrace, together with an en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two of which also benefit from doors to the garden and a family bathroom.
Set in a desirable location within park like grounds and gardens of approximately 4.75 acres, the Lodge is accessed over a sweeping rhododendron flanked private driveway leading to the magnificent original Grade II listed gates. To one side is the double garage, which has electric up-and-over door, power and light, WC and a separate side door leads to a staircase to the first floor studio, which has planning consent to extend at first floor level to add a kitchen and bathroom to create ancillary accommodation. The property sits within attractive mature park-like grounds of around 4.75 acres, with extensive grassed areas, numerous trees, firs and wooded groves. To the south and east sides of the building there is an extensive stone paved terrace, parts of which have low balustrade stone walls with gravel pathways around the house.
