Oak Lodge is an attractive modern bungalow, set within beautifully planted gardens with extensive outbuildings and situated at the end of a private track in a highly secluded setting in Yorkletts. The property was built during the 1990s, but has undergone a comprehensive programme of renovation in recent years, including rewiring, a new boiler and central heating system, new UPVC windows and doors, a new kitchen, a new bathroom and numerous other improvements.
A UPVC double glazed front door opens into a spacious central entrance hall. To the left of the entrance hall, there is a well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and floor units, set around black granite work surfaces and integrated appliances.
To the rear of the property, there is a huge, dual aspect sitting room, with a herringbone brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and wide, double glazed sliding doors, which afford lovely views over the garden.
An inner hallway leads to three, generously proportioned bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a contemporary suite, including a jacuzzi bath and a separate shower enclosure. The main bedroom is a particularly good size double room, with a range of fitted wardrobes and bedroom furniture and attractive views over the gardens. In addition to the extensive accommodation on offer, the property also has a large, boarded loft area.
Oak Lodge is set back from Dargate Road, accessed via a long, private track which leads to a block paved driveway. This provides parking for at least three vehicles and leads to a double garage, with two up and over doors and power connected. To the front of the property, there is a sandstone patio area, an artificial lawn, raised decking and a huge log cabin style summerhouse with power connected to it.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a permeable composite resin patio and beautifully planted beds and borders. An area of raised decking overlooks the adjoining woodland, whilst a paved pathway leads to a large detached outbuilding with power connected to it. This is currently used for storage, along with four further storage sheds & workshops (each of which have power connected).
