An important and historic Grade II listed country house with excellent accommodation and extensive grounds totalling 6.5 acres.
Sandridge Lodge is a substantial Grade II listed family house, dating from C17th and formerly
the property of Marquis of Anglesey and said to have been a hunting lodge. The house has been subsequently refurbished and updated over the years, and now presents as a spacious and impressive living space, whilst retaining a wealth of period features and interesting detailing. Brick built with a steeply pitched double Roman tiled roof, the house extends over three storeys, with diamond leaded casements and brick chimney stacks. Internally the house is thoughtfully laid out, with a well equipped kitchen/breakfast leading to a traditional dining room and on to a sitting room, both with fi replaces. There is a gracious drawing room and an exceptional additional reception space with a mezzanine floor currently used as a games room. On the first floor are 6 bedrooms, accessed by separate staircases, with a master suite, and four bathrooms, all beautifully appointed and generously proportioned. The second floor has two more bedrooms and a playroom. The majority of rooms benefit from wonderful southerly views, which are also enjoyed by the bedrooms. The property is beautifully presented as a family home, and has a warm and welcoming feel.
Sandridge Lodge is located about a mile out of the village of Bromham, a thriving village to the west of Devizes, with various amenities including a social centre, convenience store, a butchers, Public House and a Church. There is a local primary school and the popular schools of John Bentley, Calne and Devizes Comprehensive, as well as several very good independent schools. The historic market town of Devizes is approximately 4 miles away
with a variety of shops, restaurants, coffee houses and a weekly traditional food and produce market. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside close to the Roundway Downs, there are ample walks, footpaths and bridleways as well as three supermarkets and a leisure centre.
The property is approached via a sweeping gravel drive bordered by hedging, with mature trees and expansive lawned areas. There are well stocked herbaceous borders, as well as a productive walled garden and an orchard. The southerly paddock is stock fenced and with a mains water supply. To the East of the property are outbuildings comprising a double garage, workshop and three stables with a yard
area. Permission has been granted (E05/01507/FUL) for an additional triple garage and garden store.
