Full description

Set just below the iconic treeline of May Hill and enjoying stunning southerly views towards the Severn Estuary, a five bedroom lodge house nestled in a magical wooded setting that extends to around 15 acres with a further 35 acres available separately.

Occupying a tranquil and very private spot surrounded by mature stands of chestnut coppice and coniferous woodland, Mayhill Lodge is a charming former lodge house set in an enviable position with distant views to the south.

The current owners have been in occupation since 2005 and the property is not listed.

Arranged over two floors, almost all of the accommodation has the benefit of the view. The aspect combined with large windows makes the property wonderfully light.

The property is a much loved family home, beautifully presented, well-proportioned and spacious. Comprising five bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, study and the kitchen. The property retains some charming features that include exposed wooden beams, stripped wooden floors and open fires however, the property still offers a massive amount of further potential subject to any necessary consents.

Outside, the house is immediately surrounded by lawns which run up the bank behind the house to the wood. The wood line ensures an excellent level of privacy and completely encompasses the property. The ownership of woodland also extends across the lane in front of the house ensuring the owners maintain control of the view.
