A delightful Grade II listed lodge house at the foot of The Cherkley Court Estate with outstanding views. Lower Lodge is an absolutely charming property dating from 1830. The property originally formed part of the The Cherkley Court estate owned by the Beaverbrook family. It is understood to have been sold out of the family estate in the early 1960's. Since then, there have been several important and sympathetic extensions, creating a comfortable and adaptable home. The accommodation broadly consists of entrance hall providing access to the sitting room - this is a lovely triple aspect room with wood stripped flooring and open fire. The dining room is positioned behind the sitting room and also enjoys a wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms adjacent and a luxurious family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle, roll top white traditional bath and thought to be the original WC. The impressive kitchen/breakfast room has a range of high quality furniture complemented by granite work surfaces, a central island and an Aga. The far reaching views toward Norbury Park are superb. Beyond the kitchen there is a secondary luxurious bathroom with stairs leading down to the master bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and a door directly out to a patio. The gardens are an absolute delight and a prime feature of Lower Lodge, with many interesting aspects. There are many excellent seating areas where one can take advantage of the wonderful views and in particular, the roof terrace affords a westerly aspect. The gardens offer a superb degree of privacy and seclusion and as a whole are an outstanding feature.
