Full property description
A completely bespoke and utterly unique Canadian lodge-style property, offering over 5000 sq. ft of accommodation including a self-contained one bedroom annexe, set within gated grounds of approx. 0.33 acres in a spectacular setting with panoramic views over open countryside.
Syndale Park Lodge is a solid wood property, constructed in 2007 using highly sustainable Canadian White Cedar. It was built on the site of a much older, period property, incorporating reclaimed materials from the original house, alongside an extensive use of natural materials to create a distinctly rustic home, at one with the nature which surrounds it. These include features such as reclaimed brickwork, bespoke sash windows and American oak flooring, which combine with vast open plan spaces and vaulted ceilings to create an incredible sense of light and space.
The front door opens into an entrance hall, with a built-in coats cupboard and terracotta floor tiles. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a large double bedroom with American oak flooring, built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. To the left of the entrance hall, there is another double bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling, American oak flooring, a built-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room.
A set of double doors open into a huge open plan kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and a terracotta tiled floor. The kitchen has been fitted with a bespoke range of traditionally styled units, set around beautiful slate work surfaces, a large island/breakfast bar, an Aga with an electric Aga companion and a lovely reclaimed dresser. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into a clearly defined sitting area, with an exposed brick wall and a wood burning stove. From here, steps lead down to a vast open plan, triple aspect living space, with a part-vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and an exposed brick fireplace. To the left of the kitchen/breakfast room, an inner hallway leads to two further bedrooms and a luxuriously appointed bathroom, with a double ended bath, twin sinks and a walk-in shower enclosure, finished with rich marble tiling. One of the bedrooms has French doors which open onto the veranda and a staircase which rises to a mezzanine study area. The extensive ground floor accommodation is completed by a utility/laundry room, a cloakroom and a rustic garden room with fine views and access to the veranda.
The staircase rises to a galleried landing on the first floor, which overlooks the living space below. This leads to a splendid double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, an en-suite bathroom and French doors which open onto a balcony. Another door leads through a wardrobe to the Narnia Bedroom. This enchanting room features a decorative fireplace, a well-appointed en-suite and French doors which open onto a balcony. This affords outstanding views over open countryside and has an external staircase allowing independent access to this bedroom suite from the rear garden.
In addition to the main house, there is a self-contained annexe which can be accessed from the main house but also has its own independent access. This consists of an entrance hall, an open plan living room and kitchen with a dual aspect and a vaulted ceiling, a double bedroom and a beautifully appointed wet room.
Syndale Park Lodge is set within a secluded plot of approx. 0.33 acres and is approached via a set of electric double gates. These open onto a gravelled driveway which provides parking for numerous cars and leads to a timber garage/workshop. The gardens completely surround the house and are mainly laid to lawn and beautifully planted with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. To the rear of the property, there is a large, decked veranda and an additional area of raised decking, both of which afford magnificent views over the rolling fields and countryside which the property backs directly onto.
