A sweeping drive brings you through the granite stone entrance to reveal a truly wonderful home. Goodwood Lodge is nestled among a mature deciduous woodland with well planted trees and shrub borders, on c. 1 acre of ground. The modest front elevation of this large country dormer home belies the spectacular interior, breathtaking views and the true scale and proportion of this exceptional property.
When you approach the home and open the front door, it reveals a beautiful entrance hall with exceptional proportions, and you begin to appreciate the true elegance and grace of this spectacular home. Upon stepping inside, the property simply seems to expand endlessly to the rear, as glimpses of a sylvan landscape beyond commands your attention. An enormous double height glazed orangery places you in a wooded wonderland. The space really merges nature into the home, yet it has a warm and inviting feel due to the clever use of wood, soft furnishings and a log burning stove to enjoy on those colder days. A feature custom designed staircase cleverly encases the external glass walls and leads up to an ample landing space, complete with seating area to sit and enjoy views of the treetops and the expansive rolling landscape to the rear.
The first-floor hallway has great proportions, as does the whole property. The gracious high ceilings, generous double-glazed windows and exceptional glazed areas maximise the feeling of space and seamlessly merge the living areas with the outdoor space.
Downstairs provides a superb entertainment space with all reception areas interconnecting through to the kitchen and dining areas and directly to the outdoors.
