The kitchen has timber fronted units and windows overlooking the front courtyard and there is a useful utility room which has recently been refurbished.
On the first floor, the principal suite is especially spacious with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and bathroom.
The property is approached from the road via a shared driveway which leads to the property's private driveway and double garage beyond. Further parking is available to the rear of the garage. On passing through the magnificent entrance gates, there is a small paved courtyard on the left which leads to the front door. The paving continues around the house to the rear where it opens out to a wide terrace, ideal for al fresco dining.
The gardens lie within parklands which are Listed Grade I, and form a large expanse of lawn, flanked by some mature trees and clipped hedges. To one side of the garden is a small woodland shaw. There is approximately 30 acres of communal gardens and grounds including the use of two tennis courts.
The gardens and grounds at North Park Lodge provide a picturesque setting for this substantial family home.
