Are you looking for a totally unique and stylishly quirky home surrounded by stunning country-cottage gardens, far reaching views and set in the peaceful countryside? Then this property could well be your dream home!
West Lodge was originally built for Lord Cable, the owner of Lindridge House in Circa 1920's and is simply beautifully elegant and would sit perfectly in a feature of The Country Living magazine. The current owners have poured their heart and soul into the place adding a huge amount of character and charm along the way. Think sash windows, high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and decorative ceiling cornices. Not to mention the plentiful amounts of stained glass detail and arched doors and windows.
The property is perfectly positioned on the 1/3 acre plot with far reaching farmland views and is full of beautifully stocked flowerbeds, meandering paths that lead to hidden away areas like the chicken run and even has a large studio/home office in the grounds. The garden looks lovely all year round but really does come into its own in the summer! It is a gardeners paradise.
Internally the property offers three beautifully laid out bedrooms. The very grand Bedroom one has a very plush en suit bathroom and an additional room perfect for a dressing area (currently used as a second kitchen area but can easily changed). Bedroom two also has an en suit shower room. Bedroom three is just as stylish and light. The reception rooms lead perfectly from one to the other. The Drawing room has a most fantastic eye-catching fireplace and plenty of light from the large sash windows. The Orangery/Kitchen is a stunning room overlooking the terrace, gardens and fields beyond. The area has been set up with a kitchen area one end and a dining area the other. Externally, lets not forget that there is a substantial cellar, a double garage and plenty of private parking.
The whole property offers a great deal of versatility and can offer the new owners something very unique in the peaceful South Devon countryside. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere yet you are walking distance to the village amenities and a few minutes drive away from bustling towns, the M5 and the mainline railway.
