Full description

This property is the epitome of the phrase 'location, location, location' and offers a wonderful lifestyle with its stylish accommodation and tasteful appointments. But it is ambience that makes a home, and The Lodge certainly has that. You will find it easy to fall in love with this outstanding property. Tucked away down a private driveway the property stands proudly in its own grounds of approximately 0.2 acres in a slightly elevated position offering glorious views over rolling countryside and the fishing lodges off Oakmere Avenue and beyond. The generous and inspirational living spaces are beautifully presented and impressively appointed with a flowing floorplan. Believed to date back in parts to circa 1775 the property has been tastefully upgraded and extended over more recent times, whilst retaining a plethora of character features, giving this home a real sense of history and personality, providing an eclectic mixture of the different eras. Internally comprises a spacious reception hall, large living room, dining room, sitting room/study, rear porch, ground floor shower room and a fabulous, bespoke living kitchen which provides a great social space. To the first floor are four bedrooms and a luxurious Jack and Jill bathroom. Surrounding the house are beautifully landscaped gardens, mainly lawned with an array of established trees and shrubs. A large driveway provides off road parking and leads to the attached double garage. This particular area of Withnell enjoys a delightful rural position, known for its luxury homes and settings, yet within easy reach of amenities as well as excellent transport links via rail and road - the M65 and M61 motorways are just a short drive away, allowing trips to Manchester in as little as 35 minutes or Windermere in approximately 45 minutes. With a property of such size and quality it would be an almost impossible task to isolate one feature as to what makes this home so special; for this reason I cannot encourage you enough to view this beautiful home.
