West Lodge is an outstanding, much-improved and beautifully extended detached house of brick-and-flint construction dating back to approximately the early 19th century, originally being one of the gate houses to Barton Hall owned by Lord Bunbury. In more recent years the house was beautifully transformed and doubled in size with a stunning two storey extension forming an exceptional mirror image of the original cottage incorporating fine details such as stone and brick moulding, flint work and bespoke joinery. Along with the period charm and character one would expect and hope for in a such a delightful home, other features include a fireplace with wood burning stove, tiled and wooden flooring, bespoke double glazed timber windows with brick moulding above, splendid oak "Gothic style" arched entrance door and of particular note, the magnificent "barley twist" chimneys associated with the Barton Hall estate.

Benefitting from a wonderfully luxurious family bathroom (newly installed/remodelled September 2016) and oil fired central heating, the beautifully arranged accommodation possesses a most homely atmosphere and currently in brief comprises: superb entrance door opening to an entrance porch and door to entrance hall with stairs off to first floor and door opening to a ground floor cloakroom with WC and wash basin. The sitting room is a charming reception, a particular focal point being the fireplace with wood burning stove and windows to both front and side. A separate family room makes an ideal play room with window to front and built in corner cupboard. The kitchen dining room is a light and airy space fitted with a range of built in cupboards with space for range oven and other appliances. There are windows to the rear and side and quarry tiled and wooden flooring. A door leads to a utility room with sink and door to garden.

First Floor Accommodation
Stairs lead from the entrance hall to a first floor landing with built in cupboard and airing cupboard. There are three comfortable, double bedrooms, the largest of which is complemented by an en-suite shower. The luxurious family bathroom has been newly re-fitted and remodelled (September 2016) and creates a superb space with a stylish suite comprising free standing bath, shower, wc and wash basin. A walk in dressing room situated off the landing and between the bathroom and bedroom could offer further potential and completes the first floor accommodation.

West Lodge is approached through a pair of timber gates leading to a gravel driveway providing vehicle parking and access to a detached garage with electrically operated door. The gardens are a charming feature situated to the front, side and rear, providing the occupants with a pleasant degree of privacy. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and stocked with numerous flowering plants, shrubs and a verity of mature trees (including fruit trees).

The property occupies a prominent setting on the edge of the village Enjoying open views to the front. Great Barton is a very sought after village with a thriving local community and provides an excellent range of local facilities including a well-regarded primary school, church, shop and village hall. The village is situated within only a few miles from Bury St Edmunds and the excellent range of everyday facilities this historic market town has to offer.
