The Property
Hemingford Lodge is a beautifully-presented, timber-framed Potton home that was completed in 2001. The property, which is constructed from handmade bricks and has clay roof tiles, sits in well-maintained landscaped gardens in a private setting. Hemingford Lodge offers bright, spacious and flexible accommodation that benefits from underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, characterful exposed exposed Douglas Fir posts and beams and views of the gardens from the main reception rooms and bedrooms.

The front door, which has ornate coloured glass detail, opens into a generous reception hall which has attractive tiled flooring and gives access to the main reception on the ground floor. The drawing room and dining room both offer fabulous formal, interconnecting entertaining spaces with wonderful views over the gardens. The triple-aspect drawing room has a stunning brick inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove, while the dining room is located to the rear and has an open fireplace and French doors that lead out to the decked terrace and garden. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room, which also enjoys views of the rear garden, is fitted with a comprehensive range of oak units with granite work surfaces, 1½ bowl under-mounted sink, dual fuel range-style cooker, integrated dishwasher and microwave together with ample space for an American-style fridge/freezer. There is a charming informal dining area and a door leads to a useful utility room with under-mounted sink, fitted units, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and a door to the rear garden. There is a further everyday sitting room which has views to the front and rear, a feature fireplace with attractive herringbone brickwork and a gas stove, and an alcove which could be used as a study area. Double doors from the sitting room open into a delightful garden room which offers the opportunity to enjoy the garden and woodland backdrop at all times of the year. Also off the hall is a shower room which has recently been updated with walk-in shower, wash hand basin in a vanity unit and WC; there is also a useful storage cupboard and boiler room.

A wooden staircase leads up to an impressive galleried landing which is flooded with natural light and has a delightful reading area. The impressive master bedroom has a striking vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and enjoys elevated southerly views over the garden. The en-suite bathroom is fitted with a freestanding ball and claw foot bath, separate shower cubicle, twin wash hand basins set in a vanity unit and WC. There are four further double bedrooms, all of which enjoy views of the rear garden and two have generous fitted cupboards; there is also further eaves storage in some bedrooms. These bedrooms are served by a bathroom with bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC.


Hemingford Lodge is approached through a gated entrance and along a private drive that leads to a generous turning and parking area with ample space for several cars. The parking area is paved with hand-made bricks with a decorative mosaic insert. The detached Heritage garage block comprises a double and a single garage, workshop and attached log store. The garage block benefits from light, power and water.

The gardens are a feature of this property and extend to around an acre with open lawns, an extensive sun terrace and picturesque woodland backdrop. To the front there is a deep herbaceous border to the side of the steps that lead up to the front door and a generous sun terrace. To the rear there is a further lawned area and a small copse with Birch trees. An extensive raised deck, accessed from the dining room, wraps around the side of the house and provides a delightful area to sit and enjoy the landscaped, secluded garden.
