Discretely sited at the end of an extensive tree-lined driveway, Naseby Lodge is surrounded by grassland, and enjoying wide open vistas from the majority of the primary accommodation. With a sweeping copper roof, the rendered exterior and curving oak beams inside create a most striking profile.
Internally, the property is finished to a high specification, with large picture windows framing stunning views of the surrounding landscape, folding glazed walls to the rear elevation with underfloor heating throughout from a ‘ground source’ heat pump, integrated Sonos system, programmable lighting, and interiors finished with a considerable flair.

Light is a particular feature, with large picture windows on the front elevation, and the reception rooms to the rear having glazed sliding doors, from where the open plan kitchen, breakfast room and sitting room all enjoy a South and Easterly view over the extensive gardens beyond. Fitted to a high standard, the bespoke kitchen includes all of the appliances expected in a house of this stature, including an Everhot Range, separate oven and induction hob, both an integrated and ‘walk in’ fridge, extensive central island, range of larder cupboards and further storage. The kitchen adjoins the breakfasting area, which in turn is separated from the sitting room by a double-sided fireplace. The dining room adjoins the kitchen, with a ’jib’ door. The drawing room to the front of the house has a traditional feel, with a large open fireplace to one wall, and sliding doors to two elevations that open out onto the terrace and formal gardens beyond. The garden room has a double height vaulted ceiling with fully glazed walls, separated by sliding glazed doors from the reception hall. A generous study is off the hall, and sits next to an excellent walk in china cupboard with its own basin. There is a cloakroom next door. In addition the ground floor has a utility wing includes a 400kg lift, laundry, utility/boot room, downstairs showering facilities, wine ‘cellar’ and a plant room.
