East Burnham Park was built in the Gothic style in the Victorian era, and divided into numerous dwellings in the 1980's. Bishops Lodge is situated in one wing and offers a wonderful combination of original features and modern finishes throughout. Set behind electronically operated wrought iron gates, there is allocated parking for two cars in the courtyard to the front, with single garage and oak-framed carport just beyond.
The entrance hall is a generous size, with flagstone floor, and stairs rising to the first floor. There is a window overlooking the courtyard to the front, with fitted plantation shutters. The sitting room was extended in recent years, with bi-folding doors opening onto the rear garden. These have integrated mini Venetian blinds. The study was previously a separate room but has now been opened up, and is to the side of this room. It has it's own door and could be used as a playroom if required.
The kitchen has been refitted in recent years, with high gloss units, granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances. A separate boot/utility room is to the side, with it's own entrance. A particular highlight of the property is the fantastic dining/family room which was created by the previous owners, with flagstone floor, vaulted ceiling, electrically operated velux windows and bi-folding doors onto the garden. This is the ideal space for formal dining or as a more informal sitting room during the day. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
There are three bedrooms to the first floor, with a beautiful en-suite shower room and dressing room for the principal bedroom and family bathroom serving the remaining two. The present owners have converted the loft in the period of their ownership, to provide a lovely bedroom overlooking the garden. There is ample space for one to create another en-suite bathroom or a dressing room should you wish to.
The rear garden has been professionally landscaped and is a haven for the keen gardener or energetic children. It is predominantly laid to lawn, with mature beds and detached home studio to the rear (with power). It is wonderfully private, being well screened from neighbouring properties and enjoys plenty of sun throughout the day.
Located well for the local amenities and transport links, Farnham Royal is next to Farnham Common which has a good variety of shops including Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s Express, Costa Coffee, Lloyds Chemist, a Post Office and a selection of excellent restaurants and pubs. It is also ideally situated for numerous leisure facilities including the 500 acres of historic woodland at Burnham Beeches, an area of natural beauty and conservation, providing attractive country walks, cycling paths and a relaxing café. Stoke Park, the popular Golf and Country Club is close by with its famous golf course, Spa and Gym. Farnham Royal is also well served by road and rail links with the larger neighbouring towns of both Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield providing direct rail access into London Marylebone in around 20 minutes. In 2021 Crossrail at nearby Burnham will provide commuters with easy access across central London to Canary Wharf. The motorway network of the M40, M25 and M4 are all also within easy reach. Burnham/Gerrards Cross and Slough Stations are all approximately 3 miles away.
