A beautifully presented and sympathetically extended 5 bedroom detached house thoughtfully renovated to a very high standard providing contemporary living whilst retaining a wealth of period charm. Occupying a lovely position in the centre of Halford the property offers privacy and space both inside and out, a separate home office, garage and parking.
Originally dating back to the 1830's having been restored and extended more recently by the current owners, with the help of many local trades people, Folly Lodge is a stunning example of mixing old and new, with the 2 storey extension added in 2019 the property now provides a spacious kitchen/ dining room with bi-fold doors out on to a large patio area which in the warmer months creates a real feeling of alfresco living, off the kitchen is a boot room, utility room and wc. In the middle of the house the main entrance hall with original flag stones leads to the sitting room which has an open fire and exposed beams, the family room is next to the sitting room and from here the handmade oak staircase leads to the first floor.
On the first floor the main bedroom is a generous size and has the addition of the stylishly added ensuite with freestanding bath and shower which forms the 2nd storey of the extension below, there are 3 other bedrooms (one currently used as a study) and a family bathroom. The second floor leads to an attic guest suite with a cleverly designed ensuite shower room.
Outside there is the raised patio terrace and an attractive private walled garden, a useful brick-built outbuilding with light and power, currently used as a gym, at the end of the garden there is access into the garage with storage area and of particular note a purposely converted home office offering a quiet place to work from. There is additional parking outside the garage for several vehicles.
