The property
Sequoia Lodge offers exceptional internal space over 3 levels and boasts over 7,000 sq ft, including an indoor swimming pool and sauna.

Set behind substantial doors, sheltered under a large porch, the welcoming and expansive hallway is dominated by a handsome oak staircase, which splits halfway up to lead to each side of a galleried landing.

The kitchen/breakfast room, with the large conservatory and outside terrace, is certainly one of the key areas of the house and considered the 'hub', where family and friends can gather.

The sitting room is set slightly below the dining room, which gives the room a higher ceiling height and thus, a real feeling of volume to the room, as well as space.

Other reception rooms include a good sized family room and study, whilst on the lower floor, a party lounge and bar, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool and sauna can be found.

There is a large storage room too, which could be converted into a games room or cinema room, if required.

On the first floor, 5 bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom enjoys fabulous views through the valley, as does bedroom 3 and 4. The master bedroom has an en suite, whilst bedroom 2 enjoys a 'Jack & Jill' arrangement with the family bathroom.

Outside
The house is approached over a carriage driveway, which offers parking for numerous cars.

The rear garden wraps around the large raised decked terrace and flanked by mature hedgerows. Access to the front, on both sides, can be gained via wooden gates and access to the large storage room, once used for garaging, can also be gained.

Square Footage: 7,167 sq ft
