Originally a workers cottage for the historic Clifton Lodge, Vessington Lodge is estimated to be over 300 years old. In 1969 a large south facing two-storey construction was added to the cottage. Extending to c. 1 acre of majestic mature grounds, there are two entrances to this truly unique property. The original gates are still nestled under a magnificent copper beech tree making this entrance a fairy-tale like experience.
The ground floor consists of a very large sitting room with dual aspect, dining room, stairs, storage closet, kitchen, utility room with wc, outside boiler house, a further reception room, kitchen, full bathroom and two bedrooms. Upstairs there is a very large master with dual aspect, office, full bathroom, another double bedroom and wc.
The current owners have recently upgraded to a zoned heating system incorporating a Grant oil condensing boiler and a triple input water cylinder. A beautiful Henley back boiler stove housed in an Inglenook type fireplace is fitted in the main living room. All that with recently added attic insulation make for a cosy home.
The possibilities are endless with this property. It could be used as one large family home; perfect for families with extended family members who want to have their own private space in the cottage, it could be used as a live/work unit or indeed as a live/rent opportunity. The house has fibre broadband which will give anyone working from home fast seamless internet service.
Outside there is a large carport with mezzanine floor, garden shed, children’s sandpit and two stables. A large lawn with playhouse, a side garden lined with beech trees and a small garden at the front of the cottage. There is a picket fenced area with raised beds perfect for home grown vegetables in addition to a cooking apple tree.
Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the potential of this property.
