Hear wellies crunch along the pebbled driveway as you make your way to the front door, greeted with the warm glow of the lights inside beaming through the stunning archway window of the lounge diner. Welcome home to South Lodge. Let’s explore and see what this six bedroom period property has to offer.
Crossing through the wood panelled hallway it’s time to hang up your coat and boots as we take a trip to the kitchen. Worked up an appetite from your brisk dog walk in Alfreton park? This stunning family kitchen is the perfect spot to whip up a tasty Club sandwich. Warm and welcoming, the wooden units provide tons of space to hold all your cooking essentials. Expertly crafted this quintessential classic kitchen with utility room beyond, meets all your modern needs but styled in a rustic way you’re in no doubt you’re in rural surroundings in this dream of a kitchen. Stick the kettle on you’ll need a steaming cup of coffee to take through to the sitting room.
We’re travelling through the opulent wood-panelled inner hallway and onto the cosy sitting room which oozes relaxed country living, to put your feet up and soak up the glorious garden views from the patio doors. The alluring open fireplace just begs to be admired over a warming glass of red wine on chilly winter evenings. Or if you’re looking for somewhere a little more bright and airy the living room is beautifully illuminated with natural light from the spectacular arched windows. This room is the perfect spot to enjoy a feast with family and friends, let’s just hope your culinary skills can match up to the striking views you can enjoy from the dual aspect windows.
If you can tear yourself away from this most magical of settings on the ground floor, it’s time to explore the rest of this lovely Lodge. Up the staircase you can’t help but cling on to the wonderful oak bannisters that add a certain grandeur to this lordly house. As you reach the first floor you’re greeted with a wonderful elevated view of Alfreton Park from the landing window along with four delightful rooms – you lucky thing!
Slip along the hallway into the master retreat. With no less than four windows this bedroom is beautifully bright and you’ll be spoilt for views to wake up to on crisp mornings. The ensuite off this bedroom is the place to wash away the stresses of the day as you enjoy a steaming shower in the walk in cubicle. But if you’re in the mood for a bit more of a pamper session then a trip back down the hallway to the family bathroom is needed. Grab your best bath salts, kick back and relax in the sumptuous roll-top bath. Three further rooms fill the first floor providing endless possibilities of use for this capacious sleeping accommodation.
So that’s your tour of the Lodge house over, but what’s that next door? A complimentary two bedroom Coach house perfect for an elderly parent or to use as a holiday let. Lovingly built it was modelled on the original stables to Alfreton Hall. The arch, the detailing and even the stones it was built with are a match made in heaven. On the ground level you’re greeted with a generously sized contemporary fitted kitchen, open plan living space having an abundance of natural light through the coach house doors and ground floor shower room. The two bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor offer the same high specification with all the cosy comfort this smaller accommodation offers.
Out and about A large and pretty rear garden can be found tucked away behind the property offering all the privacy you could dream of to enjoy summer BBQs, sunbathing when the sun decides to make an appearance or to simply sit back and relax with a glass of Pimms.
Alfreton Park is a hop, skip and a jump away so no excuse not to get out and explore what this 28-acre beautiful, historic parkland has to offer on your doorstep. Centrally located you have all the convenience of the road network so you can be in Nottingham, Derby or Derbyshire Dales in 15 minutes, and Sheffield in about 25 minutes. South Lodge is the perfect spot if you want to be easily connected to bustling towns but in a country environment.
