A FINE EXAMPLE OF THE ARTS & CRAFTS STYLE OF ARCHITECTURE OFFERING AN EXQUISITE FAMILY HOME IN A WONDERFUL VILLAGE EDGE SETTING
This fine and substantial country property has been in the safe and responsible hands of the present owners for some 17 years or so during which time, they have extended and modernised the house on a comprehensive scale, whilst having a sensitivity and high regard for the original character and architecture of the house.
The result is something rather special, a unique home in a wonderful setting with a fabulous range of spacious and versatile family accommodation complemented by gardens and grounds of great beauty, useful grassland offering an excellent equestrian dimension comprising a large stable block and yard with a separate vehicular access.
For the serious country house purchaser, Altham Lodge is, in our view, something rather special, constructed in mellow brickwork beneath a heavy clay tiled roof surmounting stylish elevations with leaded light glazing, the house is a fine example of period architecture.
Agents Note: A creative extension of the house was completed by renowned Conservation builders Messrs C R Crane and commissioned by the present owners with the brief of enhancing and preserving the integrity of the original house, in our view, this was commendably achieved.
In all 3.32 acres / 1.34 hectares (or thereabouts)
