Drayton Manor Lodge was originally built in 1902 and typifies Rothschild architecture. The house has, over recent years, been enlarged and built in keeping with the original part of the house. Many changes have taken place to the outside too, not least the construction of the stable block, feed store and outbuilding. The sitting room is both light and spacious and features a light oak floor and French doors opening due west onto the gardens, ideal for enjoying the afternoon and evening sun. More traditional is the country styled kitchen and breakfast/dining room with a rustic exposed wood floor and classic cast iron log burning stove. The hand painted kitchen units are complemented by black granite worksurfaces with the focal point being the reconditioned oil fired Aga. From the kitchen is the rear lobby which has a stable door to the garden and gives access to the cloakroom and sitting room. There is also a study/music room off the entrance hall. On the first floor is the master bedroom with en suite shower room and three additional bedrooms with original Victorian fireplaces. The family bath/shower room is both spacious and well fitted with white suite. The property is accessed via a five- bar gate which leads onto a large gravelled driveway which provides ample parking for numerous cars and gives access to the stable yard and the main section of paddock land. There is a large enclosed chicken pen and a separate vegetable garden to the rear of the stables, as well as a further range of storage sheds. Opposite the house is a further paddock of about 2 acres which is enclosed by a combination of post and rail/wire fencing.
Drayton Manor Lodge can be found on the very outskirts of Tring. This four bedroom detached family home enjoys immediate access onto a public byway which facilitates access to a labyrinth of public bridleways and footpaths which afford some of the best riding and walking the Chiltern Hills have to offer.

The property is situated within a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and within the Metropolitan Green Belt.
