Guide Price £700,000 to £725,000. A charming former Park Keeper's Lodge, this property has been lovingly kept and updated throughout by its current owners whilst enjoying an idyllic position next to Grosvenor & Hilbert Park, off-road parking and being within a short walk of local amenities and mainline station (with its fast and frequent links to the City and the coast).

This glorious period property is nestled in a unique yet admirable position next to the popular Grosvenor and Hilbert Park with its amenities, green spaces, and lakes. Despite its leafy surroundings the property offers fantastic transport links, schooling, and amenities, all within walking distance.

Set back from the road behind a low wrought iron fence and gravelled driveway sits this remarkable family home. Its crisp mixture of red brick and fresh and recently redecorated exterior certainly makes it stand out from its competition.

The front covered entrance door leads you into a welcoming tiled hallway with underfloor heating, its useful unexpected shower room being an added benefit - especially after those winter walks.

On your right is the living room, cosy from its stone surround gas fire yet light and airy through its dual aspect feature. It certainly is a room to be enjoyed both day and night. The current sellers have really transformed the room, re-instating features such as the picture rails, and through retaining the lovely original windows. Hard wired speaker sockets throughout the room along with fitted ceiling speakers allow for the ultimate cinema experience.

Heading back to the entrance hall and to the rear of the ground floor you enter the dining room. Another delightful room, the dining room has been painted in crisp Farrow and Ball tones, complimenting the lovely room it already is. Windows to both sides floods the room with light whilst another fireplace retains the period charm this house has to offer.

Following on from the dining room you have the kitchen with its abundance of painted cabinets and marble effect worksurfaces. Appliances include an oven with hob/extractor above, dishwasher and space for a washing machine. Windows and a stable door to the rear allow you to enjoy the lovely garden views on offer as you cook.

Back past the shower room in the entrance hall you have the stairs to the first floor with ornate window to the left on the landing. The thickly, carpeted stairs and oak floored landing offers access to the three double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Straight ahead of you at the top of the stairs is the third bedroom. This really is a pleasant room with attention to detail evident throughout - from the engineered oak flooring to the smart wood panelling to the walls. The part-exposed chimney breast creates a focal point to the room and a tall sash window overlooks the immaculate rear garden. The present owners use the room as a home office but it could easily accommodate a double bed along with further bedroom furniture.

Back to the hallway and you have the principle and second bedrooms. The principal bedroom can be found at the front of the house with its exposed chimney breast again adding further character. The theme of engineered oak flooring continues with small additions such as the solid oak skirting boards adding that touch of quality. Inset within the chimney breast is another designer gas fireplace, remote control operated so you can heat the room as you unwind after a long day's work. The principal bedroom enjoys wonderful park views through its sash window and offers space for chunky bedroom furniture.

Bedroom two sits next to the third bedroom and is another respectable sized double room. An original fitted cupboard takes care of storage needs and thick fitted carpets add a touch of warmth.

Completing the first floor is the family bathroom with underfloor heating, bath and shower above, WC, wash basin and chrome heated towel rail.

The outside of the property mirrors the inside when it comes to quality and attention to detail. Its landscaped transformation really is rather special.

From the front driveway with its parking for approx. 3 cars and with electrical vehicle charging point. There is gated access along both sides to the garden behind. The York stone patio offers the perfect spot for evening drinks or dining as you take in the afternoon and evening sun the garden benefits from. Beyond the patio is the immaculate lawn with brick wall running to the left and painted fence to the right, making it a safe and secure place for those with children and/or pets.

Technology:
The present owners have spent a small fortune in ensuring the house meets 21st century needs. From its zoned (individual room) app-controlled heating to electric blinds (Alexa) there really are never ending tech touches throughout this home (which can all be included by separate negotiation). A full spec list of the technology can be provided on request. For home workers there is high speed internet throughout the house and CCTV throughout ensures it's a safe place to live and work from.

All in all, The Lodge is a remarkable home with endless period features entwined with modern and quality touches throughout. A detached family home with parking in such a location is a rarity and viewings are highly recommended to enjoy all it has to offer.
