Sandridge Lodge is a Grade II listed property located on the edge of the Bowood Estate a mile outside Bromham. The house was formerly the hunting lodge of the Earls of Anglesey, who sold the property in 1650. The lodge was built in the late 16th century with later additions, and was originally thatched, but now has a tiled roof and is prettily clad in wisteria.
The accommodation comprises a reception hall, drawing room with an open fireplace and French windows onto the terrace, a vaulted games room with French oak floor and galleried study above, a delightful south and west-facing sitting room and a kitchen/breakfast room complete with Aga. Upstairs is the master bedroom suite with dressing room, en suite guest bedroom, four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms and the second floor has two more bedrooms and a playroom.
Outbuildings consist of a former coach house and a yard area which has been granted planning consent for a triple garage with garden storage.

The gardens are a particular feature of the house, comprising a mix of herbaceous borders and flowering shrubs. To the south of the house lies a terraced area and the grounds also contain an orchard which has pear, greengage, plum, apple and black fig trees. There is also a highly productive kitchen garden with a greenhouse, and a Victorian, brick-lined underground rainwater store believed to hold about 10,000 litres as well as a former ice house. Further to this, to the south is a woodland belt adjacent to the paddock – the property stands in total in just over eight acres.
Sandridge Lodge stands in a very secluded position just outside Bromham in Wiltshire, which has a primary school, post office shops and a good local pub. It’s also situated between the market towns of Chippenham, Calne and Devizes while Bath is 14 miles to the west. There is easy access to the M4 and there are many good local schools.
The property is for sale freehold with a guide price of £1,850,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01488 688547 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
