Welcome to Welcome Lodge, a stunning family home nestled on half an acre, in the picturesque village of Egleton, near Rutland Water. A handsome home, built in 2009, Welcome Lodge is set alongside a gently flowing stream, with mature hedging and well-maintained wall to the boundaries.

A Warm Welcome

Turning off Church Road, the wide, golden gravel driveway sweeps up alongside the lush green lawn to the front of the home, where there is ample parking alongside a detached garage, with annexe accommodation above. Make your way inside, via the sheltered portico, into the broad and bright entrance hallway with oak flooring underfoot, warmed by underfloor heating flowing throughout the ground floor. Situated away from the main entertaining areas, a study is peacefully nestled to the right of the entrance, with views out to the driveway, trees and front lawn.

Feast Your Eyes

Double doors lead into the open, light and airy kitchen diner. This bountiful room is the heart of the home, with a large, central island breakfast bar serving as a sociable hub when entertaining. Solid wood cabinetry provides plenty of storage for all your culinary essentials, with a Rangemaster cooker with induction hob in the attractive inglenook. Granite worktops reveal their sparkle beneath the inset spotlighting above. Storage is available in the walk-in pantry. Off the kitchen, the laundry room offers plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and features a sink and storage, with access outside to the side of the home, handy for returning from muddy dog walks in the surrounding countryside.

Relax and Unwind

Passing the guest cloakroom in the hallway, another set of double doors open to reveal the main living area, dressed in soft shades of sage green. A capacious room, with space for all the family, warmth emanates from the modern, glass-fronted fire, inset within the wall in the sitting room area. Verdant views feature from windows overlooking the side and rear garden, where the room naturally zones into a dining area. Opening up from here, double doors lead through to a large, light-filled garden room, with views over the garden and countryside to three sides. Doors open to the terrace, inviting you to step outside and enjoy the sunshine, or perhaps a spot of al fresco dining.

And So To Bed

An airy home with an easy flow, take the stairs up from the entrance hallway to the first floor landing, where beautiful countryside views await from the three guest bedrooms, all of which benefit from air conditioning in the summer months, and one of which contains its own private en suite. Refreshment awaits in the large family bathroom, with bathtub, wash basin and lavatory, whilst an abundance of storage can be found in the deep, walk-in linen closet on the landing. Sequestered away along the landing to the left is the principal suite, a spacious bedroom with fantastic views out over the garden and fields. Plenty of storage is available in the built-in wardrobes and eaves. Refresh and unwind in the shower room en suite.

Outdoor Oasis

With lush green lawn wrapping its way around the home from the front, the large terrace offers space beneath the pergola, for wining and dining al fresco in the summer months. Fields extend around, with far reaching, rural views in every direction, adding to the peace and tranquility of this private plot. Grow your own in the vegetable plots, with a glass house ideal for potting and nurturing shoots. Currently used as a gym, the air conditioned annexe above the detached double garage has its own en suite shower room, making the space ideal for hosting visiting family and friends. A fabulous addition, the current owners have created a spiral wine cellar beneath the garage.
