Ashfield Lodge is an iconic landmark building, which will be known to many locals in the area as it positioned in a privileged spot on the entrance to the historical Ashfield House. Built originally as a lodge to the main house, the property has been in our current owners’ care for many years and has been a much-loved family home. Having been extended under their ownership this superb home, full of character, is now sadly bigger than their needs and they are looking to sell with a heavy heart. The impressive home is secluded, but not isolated, filled with beautiful and interesting features throughout, generous rooms and still offers potential for a client to add their own mark. It is positioned on a surprisingly private and good-sized plot resting on the edge of the park.
The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hallway, with a returning staircase to the first floor, handy storage cupboard and access into the splendid dining room. Featuring a lovely bay window, decorated in warm colours and centred around a lovely cast iron fireplace with detailed surround. The dining room leads through into the kitchen with a further informal dining area, making it ideal for any visiting guests, and the heart of the home. Fitted with an extensive range of traditional units including plate and wine racks, a freestanding cooker and access directly into the side garden, ideal for summer evening entertaining. There is also access from the kitchen into a handy utility room and ground floor w.c. The ground floor then leads into a vast family room. It is large enough to house a full-sized snooker table and has two bay windows offering double aspects, this exceptional room really does provide a perfect spot in which to entertain. Double doors lead into the generous lounge which is cosily fitted with a stunning fireplace housing a large wood burning stove. There are five windows in this spacious room, flooding it with natural light, and has a cosy yet airy feel. The first floor provides five bedrooms (two boasting en-suite facilities) and a further family bathroom. The master bedroom suite is huge and has the luxury touch of its own fireplace, and even enough space to feature fireside armchairs, and is reminiscent of a hotel suite. Four large windows feature in this room with some overlooking Ashfield Park and there is a good sized en-suite offering a bath with overhead shower, wash hand basin, w.c and neutral tiling finish the master facilities. There is a second bedroom, which also comes complete with its own en-suite facilities and attached sitting area making it ideal for teenagers or visiting guests. Three further bedrooms complete this family home, all of which are of a good size, and are serviced by a further family bathroom.
Externally, the property also offers every requirement that a family may need. Set to the front behind a stone wall and with pedestrian access via a green planted walkway to the front of the home. There is a side garden, located just off the kitchen, with a flagged patio, perfect for barbeques, and leading into the rear garden, towards the double detached garage. The rear garden enjoys gravelled beds, lawns and a decked rear patio.
This quite remarkable and landmark home is most certainly one of a kind within the Standish area. The village offers every amenity including superb schools, bars and eateries, leisure facilities and shops. Viewings of this quite extraordinary home are now invited
