Town and country in perfect harmony.
Positioned as town meets country, this impressive Grade II Listed Victorian home certainly enjoys the best of both worlds, with picturesque walks quite literally on your doorstep, while the town centre and train station are just up the road when you need them.
Once the gatehouse to Pendley Manor, later extended and remodelled, Pendley Manor Lodge today offers luxurious, versatile living spaces of incredibly generous proportions, creating a seamless sense of flow between indoors and out.
Dating to around 1875, this exceptional and substantial property very much retains a sense of dramatic Victorian opulence, with its large sash windows, high ceilings and wonderful, original fireplaces. Together with its large plot and sublime views, it offers the perfect balance between town and country.
In all, the property extends to over 4,000 sq ft, with the main house measuring almost 3,000 sq ft of it.
In addition to its wide reception hall, there are three principal reception rooms, each with its own charming and distinctive character. The kitchen is well-equipped and leads into a large conservatory, while a good size utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. Down below in the basement, a good size cellar provides excellent storage.
Upstairs, the property has four large double bedrooms. The main bedroom in particular enjoys spectacular views over the garden and features a, recently completed, luxurious en suite bathroom. A similarly stylish shower room serves the remaining rooms.
Outside, the stunning gardens are established and interesting, with extensive areas of lawn, rose-lined terraces, and even a ‘secret garden’ hidden amongst the trees; perfect for children to explore. Countryside views can be enjoyed from almost every vantage point.
Located to the east of the plot, the detached garage block is also perhaps larger than you might expect. Totalling more than 1,100 sq ft, it comes complete with a useful living space above, offering excellent flexibility as guest or nanny accommodation, or could easily be adapted to suit those looking to work from home. Alternatively, planning permission was granted in March 2022 to convert the entire block into a separate dwelling altogether, if preferred (planning ref: 21/04487/FUL).
An attractive five bar gate, creates a secure, private environment and the elegant sweeping driveway provides car parking that is ample to accommodate several vehicles.
