4 Bedroom Town House For Sale
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
West Lodge and its neighbour East House were created in 2019 through the sub-division of a substantial Grade II* Listed building. This division and restoration by our client has produced an immaculate townhouse with a sympathetic finish, that has been commended by The Hadleigh Society.
Period features such as large sash windows, high ceilings, detailed brickwork and an iron fireplace combine seamlessly with more modern additions such as real oak floors, seagrass matting, a high-specification kitchen, stylish bathroom suites and a new timber porch.
LED lights are used in all of the rooms to assist with the property’s energy efficiency and the house has been fitted with a high-pressure water system.
The property has a substantial open-plan kitchen/living area on the ground floor as well as a separate entrance porch, WC and utility room. The first and second floors are versatile with the flexibility to be arranged with four double bedrooms or with three bedrooms and a first-floor sitting room to complement the reception space on the ground floor.
*As of October 2020 the property is being extended to include an orangery leading from the sitting room in place of the existing patio area. A CGI mock-up of the orangery is included on the photograph scroll (the square footage of the orangery will be approx 418sqft, this is not yet included in the square footage on the current internal floor plan calculation). A new shingled terrace similar to the one already in place will be accessed from the new orangey.
