Located down a country lane, set on high ground with superb views across undulating countryside, is this very beautiful country house. Ninnage Lodge is believed to date from c.1820 and features a mixture of Queen Anne style and Georgian architecture.
The handsome, south westerly façade is particularly beautiful with its mellow red brick and pillared entrance porch. It faces a pretty lawn framed by low brick walls, metal railings and well stocked flowerbeds. The fenestrations are noticeably impressive: large sash windows provide an abundance of natural light as well as lovely views across the gardens and surrounding countryside.
The interior is typical of this elegant period with well-proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights throughout, along with elaborate cornicing, plasterwork and impressive fireplaces in the three main reception rooms.
The accommodation flows exceptionally well and is well-suited to modern day living. There is a large reception hall with the principle reception rooms leading off. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a good size and has a useful utility and pantry beyond. On the first floor there are five bedrooms which are served by a bathroom and a shower room.
Of particular note is the beautiful clock tower with working movement.
Adjacent to the main house is a large office building with its own kitchen and cloakroom as well as an impressive games room.
This is a pretty former coach house which has been converted into a cottage comprising a kitchen and sitting room on the ground floor, with three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. There is an integral double garage.
The adjacent outbuildings provide a tool store, mower store, stable/wood store and a coal store. Above are three useful loft spaces which would present an opportunity to convert, given the necessary permissions.
Wooden gates open onto a wide gravelled driveway with plenty of space for parking. The house sits well within its own land, with the gardens and grounds wrapping around the property.The garden to the north of the house is laid to lawn and enjoys spectacular far-reaching views across the Severn Vale to Gloucester Cathedral.
The gardens and lawns surrounding the house are interspersed with a variety of trees, rose beds and shrubs as well as an array of wild flowers.
