The opportunity to acquire a home in the historical surroundings of Forest Row, steeped in centuries of history, was formally marked earlier this month when Countryside Residential (South Thames) Ltd. officially opened its Sales Centre at Kidbrooke Lodge, Forest Row. Potential buyers were invited to view the Lodge House, which is an important listed property, in addition to the plans for the two new homes that are being constructed in the grounds of the Lodge.
The new residences, which occupy prominent positions in the grounds of the Lodge House, offer exceptionally versatile accommodation throughout, in addition to large and secluded plots of approximately one third of an acre each. The properties have five good size bedrooms with the principal suite offering en-suite facilities and a dressing area with fitted wardrobes, large drawing rooms, separate dining rooms, kitchen/breakfast rooms and laundry rooms. Varying considerably in their bespoke design one of the properties includes a study whilst the other includes a garden room, plus a further storage room on the second floor.
The special finishing touches, which are the hallmark of the Company's adherence to using top of the range products, are obvious in the detail of the fittings which include; Victorian style Vernon & Tutbury bathroom suites, luxuriously appointed kitchens and a superb range of ceramic floor and wall tilling direct from Porcelanosa.
Richard Rawson, Sales & Marketing Director, highlighting Countryside Residential's reputation for building properties that are sympathetic with their setting remarks, "We take pride in our appreciation of a sense of continuity, both for the environment and the people who live there. At the same time, we also recognise the demands of today's customers and are acclaimed for our ability to combine these considerations to produce some of the most stunning new homes which fully deserve their award winning status".
The original house, Kidbrooke Lodge, can be traced back to the 16th century and incorporates a number of features particular to a building that has evolved over a significant length of time. Possessing two bedrooms, one of which has a small study, it also has a drawing room, dining room, kitchen with adjoining scullery, a family bathroom and double garage. Intriguingly the bathroom is so large that a section could be adapted to create a third bedroom if required. A delightful summerhouse provides extra charm and period details within the lodge include its exposed beams, the Inglenook and the cast iron fireplaces in the bedrooms.
Kidbrooke Lodge is very conveniently located and has easy access for the M23 and M25. The Lodge house is available circa £365,000 and the new homes are priced at £475,000 and £525,000 respectively.
