Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A six-bedroom, three-bathroom Georgian residence with a disguised history, Tong Lodge is a lovely ‘blue plaque’ home in the heart of the Burbage Conservation Area. The property once belonged to Edward H Crump (OBE), an engineer who provided Burbage with a clean water supply over a century ago. Charles Chamberlain Hurst – a notable geneticist who rubbed shoulders with the intellectual contemporaries of his day – was also born in the property.

Extending 3300sq ft over three floors, this wonderful family home has been remodelled and refurbished over the last 20 years by the current owners. It boasts a stunning handmade kitchen with integrated appliances, two beautiful reception rooms and luxurious bathrooms, and charming character features. Outside, you’ll discover a fully walled rear garden with a heated home office, and off-road parking.

Georgian Elegance

Arriving at the property, you’ll find a parking space on the paved driveway to the side, screened from the rear garden by a gate. A brick wall with wrought-iron railings frames the pebbles skirting the handsome, white-painted exterior, which features a new slate roof and double-glazed sash windows.

Step through the solid panelled front door framed by lantern lights into a bright and welcoming hallway with access to the cellar, which has power and lighting. White wall panels to dado rail height and subtle wallpaper blend effortlessly with the solid oak flooring that flows into the adjoining reception rooms and the kitchen.

Family Living

To the right of the carpeted staircase, a wide walkthrough guides you through into a panelled dining area with bold red accents and a high, corniced ceiling. The atmosphere changes with the time of day and the seasons thanks to an open fireplace with Minster stone surround, multi-coloured remote phone-controlled LED strip lighting above the picture rail, and a large sash window overlooking the war memorial.

From here, a door leads to a downstairs cloakroom with a vanity basin unit and loo, plus two Worcester boilers.

A beautiful, part-panelled and corniced sitting room lies left of the hallway. It offers a Minster stone fire surround incorporating a fully remote gas-effect log fire, and remote-controlled LED lighting above the picture rail.

Wine & Dine

An impressive dining kitchen occupies the rear of the home and comes with a huge array of bespoke hand-painted cabinets, include a big central island, incorporating soft-close drawers and cupboards, granite worktops and plinth lighting. The granite breakfast bar can comfortably seat five adults.

Integrated appliances include a fantastic gas/electric/halogen Rangemaster cooker and extractor, two integrated fridges and freezers, a wine cooler, dishwasher and washing machine.

Railed steps with a large in-built wine rack lead to French doors, which open onto a raised deck and the garden beyond – ideal for parties or enjoying a quiet morning coffee listening to birdsong.

Retreat Upstairs

Coming to the first-floor landing, head to the front and turn left into a large bedroom with coved ceiling, a sash window to the front elevation, and a three-piece en suite shower room.

Opposite is another Double bedroom with coving, picture rail, power and light, and large sash window overlooking the war memorial.

The Master Bedroom at the rear of the property overlooks the garden and benefits from having ornate coving, large private walk-in wardrobe and sash window.

Also to the rear, you’ll discover a palatial family bathroom with a sash window, gorgeous ceiling cornicing and chandelier light fitting, and glossy chequered floor tiles. The suite includes double vanity basins, a double-ended ball- and claw-foot bath with Victorian handheld shower attachment set within an arched alcove, a large corner shower and a close-coupled loo.

Second Floor Seclusion

A second carpeted landing with exposed beams connects to the remaining three carefully decorated doubles and a bathroom. Bedroom four contains integrated wardrobes and eves storage, two skylights and exposed beams.

The fifth bedroom comes with built-in display shelving, exposed beams and a side window, while bedroom six is another carpeted double with exposed beams, a feature fireplace, skylight and side window.

A bathroom serves the accommodation to this floor with a traditional-style three-piece suite, including a claw-foot roll-top bath with a Victorian handheld shower attachment.

Step Outside

From the kitchen, French doors open to a raised decked seating area with steps down onto a mature, fully walled garden. Here, raised brick-edged flower and shrub borders and trees surround a sizeable paved patio ending in another decked area, which houses a stunning 5m X 4m log-style cabin/home office with heating, power and lights, and an independent internet connection.
