St John's Lodge is a beautifully crafted Grade II Listed town house of ashlar stone elevations that has recently been meticulously and sympathetically renovated and modernised.
Approached from the front, a sweeping in/out gravelled driveway, through newly installed wrought iron railings and electric gates, leads to a newly built double garage, which extends to over 24' at its widest point. Central stone steps lead up to a wide front door with pillared surrounds into a central hallway, with cantilevered stone staircase and original balustrading. There is solid oak flooring throughout and all original cornicing has been restored.
A stunning front-to-back kitchen/breakfast room is to the left with an ornate marble fireplace surround. Kitchen units are solid oak by Joseph and Kingsley incorporating a central island, Silestone worktops, 5 oven Aga and Aga double fridge-freezer.
Opposite the kitchen is the drawing room, which features a similarly attractive fireplace and marble surround, with hob grate and gas fire, opening into the dining room. Beyond the dining room is the stunning sitting room/library, with a Chesneys wood burning stove within a grey marble surround, a range of fitted bookshelves and doors leading to the wrought iron balcony.
The lower ground floor offers two double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and an additional shower room. In addition is a second Joseph and Kingsley fitted kitchen of white and red lacquered units, black Silestone worktops and Neff appliances. Mandarin Stone flooring.
