Langton Lodge is a fine Grade II Listed Georgian home, thought to have been designed and created by Thomas Billings in 1806 who later went on to develop The Park. Built of brick with rendered and painted elevations under a slate pitched roof, this beautiful house has stunning symmetry and features typified by the Georgian period.
A sweeping carriage drive is accessed via a pair of pillared entrance gates and frames a front lawn, home to a beautiful copper beech tree.
The House The house is entered via a Doric style columned porch which, in turn, opens to the reception hall where the flag stone floors and stone cantilevered staircase with wrought iron balustrade rise to the first floor.
The principal living accommodation is arranged off the reception hall, mostly to the rear of the house, which enjoys stunning southerly views over the gardens via floor to ceiling windows and doors.
The spectacular kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of hand finished cabinets with integrated appliances and marble worktops. This well planned space has a large 'island' unit with circular breakfast bar to one end and ample space for a further table and chairs. The kitchen is open to the formal dining room which has a handsome period fireplace and French doors onto the rear terrace.
The drawing room is adjacent to the dining room and also offers direct access of the rear terrace, this spectacular room has a period fireplace with carved marble surround and open grate.
There is a generously sized study to the front which overlooks the drive.
All of the rooms in the formal part of the house have intricate ceiling mouldings, deep skirting boards and sash hung windows.
In the east wing of the house and formally the 'service' wing, there is a sitting room which opens into the playroom which in turn has doors to glazed garden room. There is also a boot room, hobby room / office and cloakroom.
The first floor is similarly in two parts; from the main landing the principal bedroom has a fitted walk through dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom. There is a guest suite with shower room and a further bedroom served by a separate bathroom. There is also a smaller bedroom which is currently arranged as a second dressing room. On the first floor of the east wing there are 3 further bedrooms with a bathroom, separate shower room and WC. Five of the seven bedrooms are located at the rear of the house and thus enjoy fabulous southerly views over the garden to the hills beyond.
The lower ground floor is arranged primarily as entertaining space. There is a cinema room, bar, games room and gymnasium. There is also a laundry (complete with laundry chute) a further utility room, pantry, wine cellar and shower room.
The Grounds The gardens and grounds of Langton Lodge are a particular feature of the house and are immaculately kept and measure around 1 acre in total. The garden to the rear is tiered, creating natural 'compartments' . There is a substantial terrace for entertaining across the back of the house with stone balustrade and steps down to a lower level terrace. Spanning the full width of the house this sheltered sunny spot has paving interspersed and softened with low box hedging and structural planting. Formal lawns fall away from the house towards to the rear boundary where mature evergreen trees and hedges provide total privacy. Tucked away in the trees at the end of the garden a children's 'forest' play area provides the perfect balance between formal gardens and family fun.
On the west side of the house there is a kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds and a substantial timber framed greenhouse.
To the front of the house there are two garages and an open store with timber workshop.
The Coach House / Annex Adjacent to the garages to the east of the plot there is a small self contained coach house. There is a sitting room with cloakroom / shower off, kitchen/breakfast room, and bedroom suite.
