A beautiful detached family home dating back to 1870’s, originally part of the Washford Farm Estate. The property boasts bags of character features including inglenook fireplaces, chunky exposed beams and a bread oven. Accommodation is well proportioned with large bedrooms and 2 en-suites, and is set in a large garden with a double garage. Conveniently located on the outskirts of Ashford, a short drive to Ashford International Train Station.
Glenmore Lodge is arguably one of the most impressive homes in Ashford. Dating back to the early 1870’s, we believe the house to have originally be formed of two properties as part of the Washford Farm Estate. These days the property is offered to the market as a large family home with impressively proportioned rooms throughout. From stepping through the front door the character and charm is abundant. Exposed beams, oak doors, solid stone flooring and inglenook fireplaces are all present within your first few steps.
The large living room boasts an old bread oven to one corner, which these days acts as a wonderfully quaint feature to have. Unlike so many period homes the ceiling heights here, and throughout, are all very respectable and shouldn’t prove problematic for Glenmore’s occupants. The Kitchen is again a well-proportioned room with a bespoke fitted kitchen that incorporates a large fitted island, acting as the focal point. There is a pretty range cooker (gas fired) and then integrated/concealed appliances.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms on the first floor, two of which boast en-suites and the master bedrooms enjoying a walk in wardrobe. Up again, onto the third floor and you have a further guest suite. This room offers sleeping and then separate living accommodation, perfect for more independent living (if required).
Outside, the property is accessed via grand, wrought-iron, double electric gates. These are remote controlled. The long shingled driveway leads to the front of the house and a small turning circle with ample parking provision for several cars and then onto a large garage (dimensions in plan).
The garden itself is split into three main areas. Behind the property is a cottage style patio garden with seating space for BBQ’s and entertaining. This space is the closest to the kitchen and hence used for alfresco dining. To the side of the house there is a productive vegetable /fruit garden. The largest proportion of the garden is laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees a plenty. The lawn provides ample space for children to play and is well enclosed by 6ft fencing.
