THE PROPERTY

A unique detached lodge with double garage, set in a delightful location on Aspley Heath by St. Michael's Church and offered with no chain. Charlewood Lodge enjoys a private position on Aspley Heath which became known in the 1850's as a favoured residential location due to its warm climate. The sale of the Lodge offers potential purchasers the opportunity of acquiring a well-proportioned property with high ceilings and presented to a very high standard. The vendor would be prepared to negotiate a sale which includes some fixtures and fittings which complement the property. The accommodation is on one level and whilst originally designed as a two bedroom lodge, the guest bedroom is currently used as a dining room/study. The property is enclosed behind a combination of mature hedgerows and close boarded fencing providing a high degree of privacy. The property includes a detached double garage which lies to the bottom on the rear garden. It is a property that will appeal to a cross section of purchasers and is particularly suited to professionals and people downsizing looking for a base in the UK that can be left when on foreign travels. A viewing is essential to appreciate its qualities and the lifestyle opportunities it provides. Recent improvements include a new and stunning raised lantern roof window to the dining room / study which allows lots of extra light into the room and new upvc double glazed windows and French doors that lead into the rear garden. A unique feature as a member of the Charlewood Residents Association you can enjoy five acres of garden set around Charlewood House and The Lodge and also benefit from the secure gated entrance that leads to the garage and private parking. THE ACCOMMODATION The part glazed front door opens into the entrance hall with a door to the inner hallway with Amtico flooring and providing access to all rooms. The light and airy sitting room lies to the left with the central feature being a character fireplace with inset electric fire. French doors with glazed sidelights open onto the rear terrace. Across from the sitting room is the well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room with fitted base and eye level units including granite work surfaces, inset 11/2 bowl stainless steel sink with waste disposal unit below. Cooking facilities are provided by Bosch and include 5 ring gas hob, oven and grill. Also integral Bosch fridge freezer, Bosch dishwasher and washing machine. The dining/study provides an excellent entertaining room with the super lantern roof window and new French doors that open onto the sun patio and rear garden. This room can also be used as bedroom two as in the original design. The bathroom comprises a white suite including bath, low level wc and pedestal wash basin. The room is half tiled with heated towel rail and shaver socket. The airing cupboard provides good storage for linen and towels with slatted shelving. The master bedroom benefits from a bay window and is served by an en suite shower room with a stylish suite and attractive tiling. A gas combination boiler has been installed to serve the central heating to radiators. OUTSIDE Lying to the front of the lodge is a good size area of lawn edged by Holly and Yew hedging. A path leads past the front door and allows access to the slightly raised outdoor dining terrace. Beyond is the main lawn again enclosed by holly hedging with additional close boarded fencing. A paved path leads down one side and a personal door provides access to the brick built detached double garage with electric door. There is parking for two vehicles to the front of it.
