Full Details

Very rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such an impressive home; Monckton Lodge is truly unique with both the exterior elevations and interior structure being quite striking. My clients have resided at the property for over 20 years and during their period of ownership have meticulously maintained the property. The property has origins dating back to 1895 and exudes charm throughout its 5 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms, with an abundance of character features such as fireplaces, high skirtings and ceilings, cornicing and stripped wooden flooring. As soon as you enter you are aware this is no ordinary home; the original stained-glass door opens to a substantial reception hall where the original staircase rises to the generous first floor landing and a stunning 3 stepped stained-glass window. The three reception rooms are all generous in size and flooded with light. The kitchen/breakfast room was refitted approximately 8 years ago to an exacting specification, with a range of high-end appliances, extensive cupboards, quartz work tops and a substantial island unit. A bank of bifold doors open to the glorious gardens. Upstairs are five bedrooms, all of which are doubles. In addition, there is a Jack and Jill bathroom and a further shower room.

Outside, the front is walled with an 'in out' driveway providing extensive driveway parking and leading in turn to the double garage with electric up and over door, further double doors to the rear of the garage lead to the garden. A wide side gate gives access to the rear garden. The garden is a particular selling feature, sunny and private, mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and trees and benefits from a heated pool surrounded by a large Indian Sandstone terrace. There are also several outbuildings, one of which is some 29 ft in length, housing the pool boiler room at one end and at the other is a w.c and space to create a changing room for the pool.

Alverstoke is a beautiful conservation area with Stokes Bay and The Solent within walking distance offering coastal walks and water activities. Alverstoke Village centre is half a mile away and has a range of amenities including a church, schools, local shops, pubs and restaurants. Access to the M27 is under eight miles away and a passenger ferry exists to mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
