Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with Auction House

SOLD AT AUCTION - £520,000

Former gardeners lodge within approx. three acres (stms) of walled Victorian kitchen gardens, mature woodland and small lake

Owned by the family since the mid 1950s this is a unique opportunity to acquire a former gardeners lodge which was once part of Rackheath Hall.

This tranquil spot offers so much potential. The rambling gardens extend to approximately three acres (stms) with a number of outbuildings scattered within. The lodge offers three bedrooms, two reception rooms, kitchen, scullery, pantry and bathroom and is need of complete renovation, however it may now suit extension or total redevelopment (subject to planning). Lying dormant is the large walled Victorian kitchen garden with the remains of once large greenhouses. Also within the gardens is a small lake which is partially owned with the Hall but includes the Grade II Listed bridge, which has been used as a setting for a number of romantic films. This is a truly spectacular opportunity to acquire something unique with outstanding development potential.

The Lodge

Porch, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, scullery, pantry, three bedrooms, bathroom, sun room
