Description

Enjoying an elevated position on the very edge of Botcheston, Bufton Lodge stands proudly amidst delightful gardens and open countryside views. This elegant and stylish period property was previously part of larger country house. The property retains many original features such as highly decorative ceilings, panelling, leaded windows, the original door bell, to name a few. In recent years, the property was remodelled and extended, and now seamlessly combines its historic charm with modern family living.

The focal points of the property include the original magnificent reception hall and drawing room, exuding timeless grandeur. There is a superb bespoke fitted breakfast kitchen and an adjoining spacious reception room. Also from the kitchen is access to a large cellar with three store rooms. Set across the first and second floor are four double bedrooms, WC and a four-piece bathroom.

Outside, the property is accessed via electric gates, leading to an impressive shared driveway, jointly owned by 3 Bufton Lodge and a neighbouring cottage. The driveway sweeps into the front and side of the property, accommodating ample parking for numerous vehicles.

Nestled within the generous grounds, the split-level gardens extend towards the south and west of the property. The gardens are thoughtfully landscaped with borders, shrubs, plants, and trees, which give the property a high level of privacy. Completing the outdoor space is a west-facing seating area, which can be accessed directly from the kitchen.

The meticulously restored architectural features and the idyllic setting make this property a must-see to appreciate its full extent and charm.
