  • Bedrooms: 2
Positioned in a truly rural location at the end of a leafy country lane and offering excellent potential for those looking to develop and extend a period property to their own requirements, this two storey, two bedroomed, 18th century lodge is built of honeyed Cotswold stone and stands at the forefront of a 0.85 acre plot which includes 1/2 acre of paddock.

The property is so discreetly positioned that, unless you were told, you would not know the property existed and is approached by a third of a mile private driveway with the property itself being screened in a cloak of mature foliage with a private atmospheric garden to the rear and a paddock with separate access.

Occupied by the same family for the last 30 years the lodge is now ready for a programme of modernisation and suitable for an substantial extension subject to the usual planning consent.

Despite its modest proportions the property does have a real charm and character that could only be experienced first hand.

Geographically the property is located close to the Four Shires Stone on the Great Wolford road from the A44. Approximately 2 miles east of Moreton-in-Marsh where there are many shops, hostelries, supermarkets, garden centres, community hospital and the all important railway station with links to Oxford and London Paddington.
