SOLD BY JACKSON-STOPS........ MAGNIFICENT PERIOD FAMILY HOME ONLY 4 MILES FROM REIGATE AND SET IN PRIVATE GROUNDS OF JUST OVER 5 ACRES ..... North Lodge is a delightful period family home, dating we understand from the mid-19th century and latterly extended during the turn of the 20th century and again more recently in the last 30 years in a highly sophisticated and sympathetic manner. North Lodge served originally as the lodge house for the Mynthurst Estate, which is an impressive country mansion located at the top of the hill. There is a great sense of style and character throughout that one would expect during this celebrated period of architecture with many noteworthy original features internally and externally including the magnificent original wrought iron gates, stone mullion windows, some moulded panelled doors and fireplaces. The current owners who have owned North Lodge for about 15 years have renovated the property tastefully throughout and extended, including the addition of a superb orangery in 2012 and a first floor extension in 2009, all very much in keeping with the charm of the property. The accommodation as can be identified by the floorplan is well-proportioned, bright and flexible to suit ones needs. There is the added benefit of a detached barn/studio, which could be used for a variety of purposes including home office, for relatives to stay, au pair or games room. There are fine views either over the delightful gardens, the surrounding countryside or to the north toward the North Downs. The grounds, compliment the property perfectly and are a prime feature of North Lodge, principally extended to the rear enjoying a southerly orientation and do afford a great degree of privacy and seclusion. The gardens have been well-maintained over many years and are perfect for entertaining, there is an attractive patio directly outside of the orangery making for an excellent seating area designed to capture the sun. There is a driveway that leads to the detached double garage and parking. In total the grounds extend to just over 5 acres which comprise the formal gardens and woodland of about 2.8 acres and the remainder being a paddock located to the south and abutting the main curtilage of North Lodge equating to about 2.3 acres.
