Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Loddon Acres is an impressive Edwaradian house set centrally within its stunning and meticulously maintained gardens, a little over an acre, on the banks of the River Loddon. The property stands elevated and was designed in this way by the Edwardians so that the house would never flood and provide attractive views from within over the gardens and river. Arriving at the property, steps lead onto a raised terrace where the front door opens into a delightful reception hall, with room enough to house a Grand Piano. The principal reception rooms are easily accessible from here as too is access to the rear terrace and gardens. A consistent feature at Loddon Acres is the wonderful light that filters throughout the house and this is apparent in the drawing room with triple aspect windows to the front, side and rear gardens. An attractive working fireplace provides a focal point to this inviting room. The study, with bay window and views to the river, lies across the hall and next to the dining room which is an elegant and partially panelled room. There are French doors providing a further access to the rear terrace and a large bay window. From the dining room a door opens into the kitchen/breakfast room which lies at the heart of this house. A fabulous bay window offers panoramic views of the front garden and is the ideal position for informal dining. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base store units and integrated appliances and at its far end is a utility area and the back door. From the kitchen the reception hall can be re-entered where there is a cloakroom and stairs leading to the first floor.
The bedrooms are arranged off a central landing that runs the length of the house with the master suite at its end. With two sets of windows providing attractive views, there is a dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Four of the bedrooms, are served by a family bathroom and the fifth has an ensuite. Two of the bedrooms have access onto a balcony where views of the rustling willows and the river can be enjoyed. A noteworthy feature of this house are the attic rooms which over the years have been used as a hobby room and office.

Loddon Acres is approached through wrought iron gates from Loddon Drive, a private residential lane, which open onto a sweeping driveway encapsulating a well-stocked garden island. Walking through the landscaped gardens it is here that you begin to understand how special a position Loddon Acres really holds. The front garden, near perfectly flat, provides the ideal position for Croquet, with mature flower boarders, trees and hedging providing a colourful back drop as well as privacy and the elevated terrace is an ideal position from which spectators can look on.

A charming wooden dry boathouse with slipway onto the Loddon is positioned to the boundary of the garden and there is a double garage serving the property.
