Offering well-proportioned rooms, and plenty of period character, The Lodge is a unique opportunity. The property requires updating but boasts plenty of potential. An interior porch area leads into a large reception hall which features the staircase, and a door to the garden at the rear of the property. Another door leads into the dining room which features a large window, original wooden flooring and space for a
fireplace to be reinstated. The dining room leads through to the sitting room located at the end of the property, which features the other side of the chimney breast ready for a further fireplace to be reinstated, and double doors leading to the garden. The good-sized kitchen at the other end of the property requires modernisation, but displays appealing existing features such as the original windows, and a large fireplace with potential to fit a range cooker. There is also a small pantry, an adjacent cloakroom with outside access, and a cellar reached via stairs from the reception hall.
Upstairs, all three bedrooms are of a generous size and benefit from pleasant views, while the family bathroom is spacious and has potential to be an impressive space after modernisation.
