Glen Auldyn Lodge, Glen Auldyn, Lezayre, IM7 2AH

Property Description

Agent's Comments:- Dating from around 1860 this Victorian Country House occupies an impressive position within mature well stocked grounds of around 1.3 acres or thereabouts which includes a small paddock. It is approached over its own bridge, through electrically operated, remote controlled, security double gates onto a generous shingled driveway which leads to the detached garage and the main entrance forecourt area. The property has had the benefit of extensions during the last 25 years or so which has produced spacious and elegant accommodation which includes reception hall, cloakroom off, morning room, formal dining room, drawing room, bespoke fitted dining kitchen, 5 bedrooms in all, each with its own character and with the master bedroom having a generous en suite bathroom. There is also an attractively fitted family bathroom. Oil fired central heating is installed.
The present owners have, at considerable expense, renovated, refurbished and sympathetically restored the property with special attention to fine detailing and the use of special finishes which include wallpapers from Zoffany, Nina Campbell, Colefax and Fowler and Alexander Beaucham. Internal paint finishes have been sourced from Farrow and Ball who are manufactures of traditional papers and paint. The fine décor and finish is complemented with hand made light switches and sockets from Bromleighs of Kent.
Glen Auldyn Lodge occupies a private and sheltered position at the head of this scenic glen has lovely views and there are delightful hill and woodland walks close by.
It is extremely rare for a property such as Glen Auldyn Lodge with its restored period finishes and attention to detail to come to the market and therefore a viewing is strongly recommended as any discerning house buyer will not fail to appreciate this fine property.
The price is to include quality fitted carpets.
As previously mentioned the property is approached over its own private bridge through electrically operated wrought iron double gates (with security entry system) onto an extensive shingled driveway which leads to the garaging and also to the forecourt parking at the main entrance.
The property sits impressively within grounds that are established and very well tended. There is a large lawned front garden containing established specimen trees and shrubs. Two lawned side garden areas flank the driveway approach to the garaging. Banked rear garden with established shrubs and a lawned area with a flower bed. Small detached stone built store. Rear attached boiler house containing the Camray Quartet oil fired central heating boiler. To the rear of the double garage is a gated access to a small paddock which leads up to the mountain grazing at the rear of the property. The total area including this portion and the gardens is approximately 1.3 acres.
