Full description

Having 18th Century origins as a former huntsman's lodge, this flexible and characterful detached family home has since been substantially extended and re-modelled to afford family accommodation. Being situated within an exceptionally convenient location, within easy reach of neighbouring centres, communication links, Warwick University and Westwood Heath Business Park, the four bedroomed centrally heated accommodation has been enhanced by the present owners by the addition of a garden room, along with a double detached garage having a useful annexe over and adjoining. The house is set well back from Westwood Heath Road itself, accessed via a lengthy shared single track serving a small number of properties and occupies generous lawned gardens.

Location - Westwood Heath is strategically placed on the south-western fringes of Coventry within easy reach of the exceptional campus at Warwick University, along with Warwick University Business School and Westwood Heath Business Park. Although positioned in a semi-rural location, Old Lodge Farm is also superbly placed for access to the Midland motorway network, communication links and neighbouring towns including the A45 for Birmingham and the M42, commuter rail links and access to Coventry, Kenilworth, Solihull, Leamington Spa and Warwick. Nearby Tile Hill Station provides regular commuter rail links into Birmingham.
