Mountwood road as the name implies, the wood on the mount essentially portrays the very nature of the area, and is something which enhances the appeal of the substantial residence.

In 1976 Vicky's parents aquired Pinewood Lodge and the family enjoyed many years in a home that holds many treasured memories of times spent together, so much so in Vicky's case that she and Mike, her husband decided that they would like to move back in when her parents retired and moved on.
Although her parents had adapted the property over the years to suit their growing family there is still obvious potential to extend and enhance this fine residence.

Rising up Mountwood Road, an impressive tree lined approach to the ridge, Pinewood Lodge will be found nestling on the southerly slope within extensive gardens and the circular drive and twin gated entrances leave nothing wanting.
