White lodge is a remarkable, eye catching four bedroom detached art moderne home, an architectural style that developed out of the 1930's Art Deco period but more streamlined and less opulent which was considered quite avant-garde in its day. This fabulous property sits in a substantial plot in an elevated location in deganwy with sensational panoramic views along the Conwy Estuary showcasing the famous historic conwy castle.
Commissioned in 1936 and designed by architect Ernest Stokes, the brief was to create a modern home for a retired couple from Abergavenny and so this beautiful house with its interesting curves and balconies was born. Owned for twenty seven years, the sellers are now moving on to pastures new and looking for the next custodians to enjoy their lovely home.
What stands out about white lodge is the amazing amount of light and space throughout. The stunning views are everywhere from the ground and first floor levels and if you really want to catch the vista then there's access from the landing to the roof, evocative of the design of its day.
The property is surrounded by landscaped gardens with a long drive and parking for four to five cars to the side of the house along with the advantage of having a triple garage. There are ornamental trees, feature patio areas, rockeries and ornamental fish pond and a good sized lawned area for children to play - all well maintained. Inside is fabulous and ready to move into. Original features have been retained where possible but the property has been brought forward for 21st century comforts. There is double glazing throughout, cavity wall insulation and a modern gas central heating system. Many original features do remain including beautiful oak flooring to the lounge and dining room and the doors throughout are original too.
You are welcomed into a beautiful reception hall off which is the open plan lounge and dining room with bifold dividing doors to separate when required. An open fireplace features a stone surround whilst wall-to-wall windows with electric blinds frame the breathtaking views. Across from the lounge is another lovely room currently used an office/sitting room with floor to ceiling built-in storage with display shelving the room having a curved wall and windows overlooking the castle.
The quality kitchen which overlooks the rear garden doesn't disappoint with the choice of design in keeping with the curved theme of the house. There are plenty of storage cupboards in cream and Zebrano gloss offset with black gloss ceramic floor tiles. A superb bank of storage cupboards and appliances including two AEG ovens plus an AEG microwave and coffee machine feature on one wall whilst a central island in a complimentary gloss wood effect finish provides additional storage. A further wall of storage provides a built-in Siemans dishwasher. All work surfaces are black granite including the central island where there is also a breakfast bar seating area. Here also is an AEG induction hob and a rather special built in induction wok. The extractor is built into the ceiling. On to the utility room which is off the kitchen where there is a fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer along with the Vaillant wall mounted central heating boiler. Again storage with granite tops over and lots of natural light. An external door leads into the garden and garages. There is a cloakroom and a further external door to the side elevation off the entrance hall.
A turned staircase with glass balustrades and views of the Vardre Hill on the half landing lead on to a spacious first-floor landing with a range of floor to ceiling storage cupboards and drawers to two walls. The loft hatch is here with a pull-down ladder and this is where the access to the flat roof is. A great place to catch the sunset.
Four fabulous bedrooms are on this floor but none more so than the master bedroom which featured as a makeover a few years ago on Lawrence Llewelyn- Bowens design programme for bbc Wales. Inspired by the Art Moderne movement the bedroom is both luxurious and stylish but still can't compete with those magnificent views. There are fitted mirrored wardrobes and a door leading on to a curved balcony A fully tiled modern ensuite compliments the bedroom with a double shower, w.c. And contemporary style sink.
Three further spacious double bedrooms provide light, comfort and views, one of which has an ensuite shower room whilst one has its own balcony. A stunning four piece modern bathroom serves the two remaining bedrooms.
Outside is a triple garage with a double and single remote-controlled doors plus storage cupboard with electricity.
The property has been maintained to an exceptional standard and is beautifully decorated throughout.
This is an incredible house which has to be viewed to appreciate its quality and fabulous location !
