Welcome to Paddock Lodge, an attractive home with five beautiful bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Built by Hogg the Builder, renowned for exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail. It has all of the benefits of a modern home with the glorious design features of a period property. The front door opens up to reveal the central hallway, where if the doors are open just right, you can sneak a peek all the way through the kitchen to the orangery and gardens beyond.
Sit Down and Relax
The layout and use of this home is very flexible.
There are two rooms at the front of the property: a formal dining room and a family lounge. However, they could be used for any purpose your family requires such as a playroom or music room. The lounge has a multi-fuel stove within a feature brick fireplace adding character to this otherwise contemporary room which is oozing with natural light from the large bay window. You’ll be snuggling up on the sofa to watch a film with the whole family in here.
The second reception room is a formal dining space perfect for hosting dinner parties and serving a roast dinner or Christmas feast. This is a lovely entertaining area featuring detailed coving and decorative wall-panelling.
Heart of the home
The heart of the home has to be the kitchen. Oak units fitted against the walls with granite worktops ensure there is no shortage of storage or workspace for when the household chef is in their element preparing a meal. The window looks out into the garden at the rear and toward the paddock beyond. Despite the great amount of space, the washer and dryer are hidden away in the additional utility room with oak units painted in a pale grey, and access to the downstairs W/C. Light floods in from the orangery, a real extension to the kitchen, and where most people gather when they visit.
A lovely space with bi-fold doors out to the patio area, bringing the outside in. There is even a log burner in here so that the room is cosy throughout the winter, too.
This property has five bedrooms, so there is enough room for the whole family.
The master bedroom has a feature panelled wall in an emerald green jewel tone for a rich, decadent style. With space for seating as well as storage space you’ll find this a much loved area of the home. As you’d expect from a room of this calibre, there is an en-suite which features ‘Jack & Jill’ wash basins mounted over Oak units with a concealed shower enclosure.
Bedrooms two and four can be found just along the hallway. Bedroom two is a practical guest room and offers a generously sized sleeping area with the addition of an en-suite shower room. The floorspace allows for a variety of furniture, perfect to create a dressing area or to add built-in storage.
The simplistic decor in both rooms make them attractive to every member of the household.
Second Floor Surprises
Climb the staircase to the second floor, and you will find a delightful nook, the perfect spot to hide away and read beneath the Velux window.
You’ll find a four piece bathroom with a lovely free-standing roll-top bath up here along with bedrooms three and five. Each of the bedrooms is spacious, with exposed oak beams and slightly sloping ceilings. This floor would make an impressive suite, with bedroom three being a generous size ideal for a master bedroom, and potential to use bedroom five as a sizeable personal dressing room.
The gardens are fantastic, with a large lawn area to the rear for children to run and play freely.
The patio directly from the Orangery offers the perfect spot for al fresco dining. Across the gravel, another area currently houses a hot tub and seating for enjoying those long summer evenings. In front of the property is a secret sun trap, quiet and tucked away, private behind the hedges; it is the perfect place for a quiet sit and perhaps a coffee in peace if busy family life will ever allow.
There is certainly no shortage of parking here, from the spacious driveway to the abundance of gravelled area behind the gates, ideal if you have a motorhome or caravan for safe storage.
The double garage is great if you like to park inside with an EV charging point and has plenty of storage space, plus above the garage is a fabulous office. Velux windows ensure natural light for working in, and being separate from the property means that if you work from home, you still feel like you are leaving the house and are not distracted by family or chores when you are busy. The enclosed, flat paddock measures just less than a third of an acre, with vehicle access, ideal for a small horse or pony. There is also a timber-stable building with lighting conveniently next to the paddock gate.
