Built in 1807, Chertsey Lodge is one of a pair and was originally designed by the renowned architect James Wyatt in a Grecian style. Both gate houses flanked the coach road that ran to the mansion itself once through the wrought iron gates. The houses were subsequently enlarged by Eckstein circa 1910 and again by later owners in the 1960s and survive in fine condition today.
This striking property has now undergone an extensive program of architectural design, refurbishment and extension and offers contemporary and stylish living accommodation yet still in keeping with the original features such as bas-relief figures and pillars on the outside of the property as well as sash windows.
You approach the property through the wrought iron gates to the lane and on your left is the paved driveway which leads to the double garage providing additional parking.
The gardens wrap around the property and have been cleverly landscaped and offer different levelled areas to relax and unwind. There is also access to a roof terrace with an outdoor fireplace, ideal for summer entertaining.
Accommodation is arranged over two floors offering practicality and versatility. Once through the front door the corridor leads off to the principle rooms, with the dining room to one side with the original fireplace providing the focal point.
Through to the rear of the house is the true hub of this home, the open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room. This multi aspect space allows natural light to flood in. The kitchen/breakfast room is designed by the award winning Sebastian Cox , who creates his kitchens from sustainable hardwoods. His designs sail straight through the waves of fashion and last a lifetime, physically and aesthetically. Clever design of the tiled flooring in the kitchen and courtyard join the indoor living space with outdoors. There is a pantry/utility room off the kitchen and side access to the garden.
The breakfast area opens up to the generous family room with skylights and doors either side, opening up to create a unique living space. The bespoke storage unit runs the width of the back wall and is cleverly designed in a way that it blends into the ceiling.
In addition there is a triple aspect bedroom with a modern en suite shower room, guest cloakroom and coat cupboard on this floor.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a separate family bathroom.
Total living space is 2270 sq ft cleverly concealed by its decorative elevations which quash any misconceptions that gate houses are diminutive in size.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
