Orchid Lodge has been the subject of a comprehensive modernisation, extension and remodelling scheme to now form a home of the highest quality.
Quite literally, no stone has been left unturned, with the Vendor adding large amounts of insulation, solar panels, rewired with LED lighting and each room has TV, internet and phone points, a new boiler and plumbing with convection radiators, modern A-rated double glazed windows, a new roof with handmade clay tiles, Oak framed Porch for the front door and Oak framed entrance to the Garage, plus a new kitchen with integrated appliances, bathroom suites, oak doors throughout, flooring and décor!
The property is approached via a new driveway, complete with automated Oak gates and a tar and chip drive with brick edging and granite sets, Yew hedge to front, lawn and flower bed borders. The electric up and over garage door provides access to a huge garage, also housing a WC and utility space with a large boarded loft for storage.
The evidence of the detail that our Vendor has gone to is that the floor of the garage is tiled in natural slate and is fully insulated and plastered, with services laid on, forming obvious annex potential, subject to the necessary consents, possibly to include the vast loft space above.
A matching Oak façade front porch provides access to the spacious reception hall, complete with coat cupboards and glass display units. Double doors lead to the sitting room, with window to front and sliding doors to rear.
The kitchen/dining room is a beautiful room, with Egyptian Limestone flagstone flooring, oak units painted light grey, with white quartz work surfaces and a matching upstand and stainless steel splash back. There is a Range style cooker, American style fridge/freezer, double sink with three way kettle tap, integrated washer dryer and dishwasher, and a further display cabinet with space for a TV. There is a window and sliding doors to the rear garden.
The rest of the ground floor comprises a good sized double bedroom/additional reception room with window to front and ample fitted wardrobes, stairwell and modern bathroom, complete with bath with overhead shower, WC and basin, with tiled floor, walls, window to side and towel rail.
The newly installed Oak staircase with glass balustrade leads to a large open study area with attractive bespoke fitted shelves and cupboards and a dormer window to rear, and doors to both first floor bedrooms and the fabulous bathroom.
The bathroom on the first floor is stunning, forming a large room, with an enormous walk-in shower, a modern roll-top bath by the window, a WC and basin, Limestone tiled floor and part tiled walls with inset mirrored TV.
The master bedroom is a double aspect room, with large windows to front and rear, plus a good array of fitted Oak fronted wardrobes. This room could provide access to the roof space above the garage for an additional en-suite/bathroom or bedroom or a dressing room, subject to one's needs.
There is a further double bedroom to the front, also with fitted Oak fronted wardrobes and access to eaves storage that also houses the solar panel equipment, water tank and boiler.
Outside, the house has immaculate, landscaped gardens. To the front is a Yew hedge, area of lawn and shingle driveway. To rear is a paved terrace for entertaining, partly raised flower beds and sweeping path to a further circular seating area, lawns with hedge and flowerbed borders.
