Unique Opportunity to Purchase a Five Bedroom Lodge Standing in Approximately 2 Acres of Landscaped Gardens close to the Village of Timsbury. Set in Stunning Grounds and Presented in Excellent Order Benefiting from Detached Double Garage with Office and an Abundance of Additional Parking.
Entry to The Lodge is via a safe widely splayed gated entrance off Hayeswood Road. The gates are believed to be original serving the grounds of Kingwell Hall. The access road splits in two directions; to the right is The Lodge only and to the left three other properties. The gates and tarmac access road are owned by The Lodge.
"The Lodge" served as the lodge to the original Kingwell Hall built by the locally prominent Scobell family. The property has been extended over the years to create the 5 bedroom 2 reception room property we have today.
The gardens are predominantly west facing enjoying afternoon and evening sun. The "Little Walled Garden" adjacent to "The Folly" has been created by the present owners to maximise entertaining alfresco.
Parking is well served by a detached garage with additional office both including power and lighting plus a significant amount of parking for 8 to 12 vehicles.
For those people wishing to work from home, we understand from the vendor that their broadband connection is provided by Talk Talk and is called "Simply Broadband with Super Powered Fibre".
