Elm Lodge, Binfield
6 bedroom detached house for sale
Period Country Home with Detached Annex
WITH ANNEX. Quite possibly the epitome of the ‘dream’ English Country Home - with gorgeous views, generous grounds, and classic Georgian architecture.
Elm Lodge has been beautifully preserved and modernised over recent years, and now provides a welcoming and versatile family home.
The main house has an excellent layout of reception rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms, and there’s a separate two-bedroom annex with its own garden (screened by mature hedging).
The kitchen and orangery create a spacious and homely hub for the family, and finishing touches include bifold doors, hand-painted cabinetry and underfloor heating. The views from the kitchen island are, in our opinion, the best way to start the day!
Its rich history is still alive with open fireplaces, a former brick bread oven, a 'wishing well', and a wet cellar. The warmth of natural elm floor timbers, exposed brickwork, window shutters and sash windows give this home a unique and timeless feel.
The large gravel driveway offers parking for several cars, and new automated timber entrance gates are to be fitted prior to sale. Please note, the front photo shows a CGI impression of the new driveway (which is under construction). The large plot sits alongside farmland, and the patio and barbecue area catch the best of the sun and views.
Set near the Binfield / Shurlock Row border, and in a plot of just over one acre, Elm Lodge enjoys far-reaching views and countryside walks. It’s also easy to pick up the nearby motorway network, it’s just a 35 minute drive to Heathrow, and 8 minutes drive to Twyford station (with fast trains to Paddington, and Crossrail once it opens)

A Few Words from Quarters Residential
“Some homes just have that ‘special something’ which is hard to put into words. We think it’s the tranquil setting, beautiful finish, and the substantial feel of a grand period property.
We particularly love the classic period features of Elm Lodge and, as a Grade II Listed Building, these have been beautifully maintained over the years.
Despite its elegance, Elm Lodge is hugely practical for all family sizes, and the annex offers scope for older teens, occasional guests or an income stream. Guests can have fun with the outside privvy (likely to be Victorian), and the ‘wishing well’.
Quite aptly, for a country home, there's a large boot room we should not forget to mention - perfect for after dog-walking or kids sports and adventures.
The current owners enjoy a walk to the Shurlock Inn which, we’re told, takes around 20 minutes. You will need a good torch and wellies, though!”
