FULL ADDRESS The Lodge, Sandiway Park, Hartford, CW8 2AS

***See Ian's Video Tour*** The Lodge at Sandiway Park in Hartford is a superb and unique property which was originally the lodge to Sandiway Bank (now called Sandiway House), one of mid-Cheshire's many fine historical buildings. Sandiway Bank was owned by John Bolton in 1881, a wealthy Cheshire businessman, then subsequently by Sir John Brunner, a prominent local businessman and politician. It's important to note that despite its character and history The Lodge is not listed and has lapsed planning approval for a further two storey extension to provide additional reception room, bedroom and bathroom.

The property is now a charming and characterful house which has undergone an extensive programme of sympathetic works. It has been transformed into a 21st Century home yet retains many attractive original restored features including stone mullion leaded windows, cast iron fireplaces, tiled and wooden floors. The property is accessed via a private road and is adjacent to mature managed woodland.

The current custodians of this splendid property have extended to the rear creating a large and open plan Living Dining Kitchen space with a large central island with seating. This room provides excellent living and entertaining space and is flooded with natural light via a large central ceiling roof 'lantern'. The room opens into a private walled courtyard through full width bi-fold doors. The courtyard is laid with Indian Sandstone and has gates into two of the spacious lawned gardens. The extension also incorporates two original outbuildings providing a utility room and store/boot room, essential for modern living.

To the original front section of The Lodge is a Dining Room with dual aspect windows and a Living Room complete with a superb period fireplace and real working fire - perfect for cosy winter nights. The gardens wrap around the whole property so both of these reception rooms enjoy landscaped garden views with mature trees and shrubs.

Recently the current owners have also built a sympathetically designed two storey extension to the front which internally has created a Study / Entrance Hall and a Master En Suite.

There is a central Hallway, ground floor WC and landing area with many original features and windows overlooking the courtyard and gardens.

To the first floor are 3 double bedrooms together with a family Bathroom with large roof window and a recently built and installed Master Bedroom En Suite.

The grounds and gardens at The Lodge are larger than one might think, extending to nearly 0.2 of an acre. They comprise of mature landscaped gardens with Pond to the front and side and two separate lawned gardens to the rear divided by a feature brick wall. One half of this houses a greenhouse and the other, large area is lawned and is bordered by mature trees. There is a large Garden Storage Shed and a Wood Store.
There is off road parking for three cars together with a detached Garage.
