Description - Kynsal Lodge is approached via an impressive tree lined drive which leads to a parking and turning circle to the front of the house. The property forms the entire front and original part of house, set in secluded grounds, and in architectural terms has much to commend it being fully deserving of its Grade II listing. Dating from circa 1850 the house was designed by notable architect Thomas Baker. It is constructed of red Flemished bond brick with painted Ashlar dressings, pedimental gables, deep ground floor sash windows and a white painted stone band beneath the first floor windows. Despite forming part of the original house Kynsal Lodge retains the charm and character of a period residence with generous and well proportioned reception rooms, attractive staircase, high ceilings and decorative cornice work.

Whilst requiring a scheme of modernisation Kynsal Lodge offers extremely comfortable accommodation with light airy rooms being ideal for entertaining and family occasions. Indeed subject to the availability of planning permission and listed building consent there may be scope to extend and further improve the layout and accommodation.

There is only one part of another house attached at the rear and therefore Kynsal Lodge is not overlooked, is peaceful and not intruded upon by the neighbouring property.

Ground Floor - To the front of the house is an open fronted porch with white painted columns and half glazed front door leading into the reception hall which sets the tone for this delightful property with stained glass windows and decorative ceiling cornice. The drawing room is accessed directly off the reception hall being a lovely light room with south and west aspects overlooking the surrounding fields with parkland trees. The room has deep windows complete with shutters, feature fireplace and decorative plaster ceiling. On the opposite side of the reception hall is the snug which serves as an everyday sitting room overlooking the front drive and gardens beyond with feature fireplace housing an electric fire and off this room is a separate W.C./Cloakroom. Beyond the snug is an imposing dining room of generous proportions with vaulted ceiling incorporating skylights. The dining room has an open fireplace, serving hatch to the kitchen and deep sash windows with westerly aspect overlooking the front garden. Behind the reception hall a door opens into a elegant staircase hall beneath which access is gained to a useful dry cellar incorporating 3 rooms to include an original wine store. Beyond the staircase hall is the kitchen and utility area which is somewhat dated containing fitted wall and base units with oil fired AGA, Amana microwave, Capri electric oven with 4 ring hob, Miele dishwasher and double sink unit with drainer. The utility area off the kitchen contains a Belfast sink, further units and space for large fridge freezer and washer/dryer.
