King’s Lodge is an historic residence occupied by Charles II during his retreat from the Battle of Worcester and offers 4,240 square feet of accommodation with a wealth of retained character features including exposed beams and original fireplaces.
A cruck-framed porch leads into a spacious dual aspect sitting room with flagstone floor, stone mullion windows, and leads to a wellproportioned drawing room with window seats to both aspects and a superb stone fireplace with woodburning stove, which in turn leads to a good-sized study with quarry tiled floor, exposed stone chimney breast and stable door to the grounds. A second door from the sitting room enters a stunning dining room which lies at the heart of the home and features Victorian oak parquet flooring, a window seat and the open Inglenook fireplace at which it is believed King Charles operated the spit during his stay. A door off the dining room leads to a rear hallway with cloakroom, laundry room and garden access from which flows the generous triple aspect kitchen/family/dining room with painted base cupboard and drawer units, a large Welsh dresser, two separate ceramic sinks and a range of modern integrated appliances including a range cooker and with space for a sizeable breakfast table.
Staircases from both the sitting room and rear hallway lead to the first floor accommodation. The generous master bedroom suite can be accessed via either staircase and features a spacious bedroom with fireplace, dressing room and en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath. The galleried landing accessible from the sitting room leads to a spacious guest bedroom with a dressing room and en-suite shower room and to a front of the house a third bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The two remaining bedrooms are accessed from the rear staircase and comprise a beautiful bedroom with vaulted ceiling, exposed brick fireplace, stone hearth and window seats and a good-sized bedroom with built-in storage, both serviced by a generous family shower room.
Queen’s Cottage is a self-contained cottage currently used as a successful holiday rental and benefits from kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and shower room.
Set well back within its 4.5 acres of grounds, approached via a sweeping Lime treelined private driveway, King’s Lodge lies in landscaped gardens incorporating a wealth of level lawned areas bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds and mature shrubs and trees. The gardens enjoy a good degree of privacy and include a natural pond, rose garden, herb garden, a covered outdoor dining area, ideal for entertaining, and an extensive garage/workshop building with two garages and four additional rooms, with two paddocks to west and south sides.
