Description

Coney Lodge is a magnificent detached residence situated on a plot of approximately one acre, nestled among picturesque countryside with breathtaking views extending all the way to the sea. Access to the property is via a private farm track that leads to electric gates, opening up to a sprawling gravelled driveway with a striking central pond with a fountain.
The entrance to the house is through a recessed porch with double doors that open to a grand tiled reception hall, providing a warm welcome and granting access to all the main rooms of the house. On the left-hand side, there is a study, a formal dining room, a breakfast room with patio doors that open to the side patio, and a well equipped kitchen with a vaulted ceiling that offers sweeping views of the garden and surrounding fields. Additionally, there is a utility room and a cloakroom for added convenience.
On the right-hand side of the reception hall, there is a stunning living room featuring a brick corner fireplace and doors that open to the garden. Continuing down the hallway, there is a gym, and a self contained annexe which includes a kitchenette, a shower room and large reception room with full-height windows that overlook the garden. A staircase leads up to a mezzanine level, currently utilised as a games room, which would make a lovely bedroom.
At the far end of the house, there is an indoor swimming pool that is heated and features an in-built Jacuzzi, with decking surrounding the pool and French doors that open to the patio, creating an ideal space for relaxation and entertainment.
Returning to the entrance hall, an attractive, central wooden staircase leads up to a galleried landing which presents five superb size bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. The 'Master Suite' includes extensive built-in wardrobes and French doors that open to a balcony overlooking the front of the property and far reaching rural views. The staircase rises to a tower room, currently utilised as a dressing room, offering elevated views of the sea.
Externally, the wrap-around gardens are thoughtfully landscaped and adorned with mature trees, ensuring privacy and tranquility. A huge patio area provides an excellent space for outdoor entertaining and al fresco dining. A glass garden room with a log burner offers 360 degree views of the garden and rural backdrop.
To the far right of the driveway, there is an impressive two-story garage with capacity to house eight cars, spanning over 2000 sq ft (185.80 sq m). The second floor of the garage has been partially converted and is currently used as storage but could potentially serve as a home office or further ancillary accommodation.
