Guide price

A unique opportunity to acquire a detached and character four bedroom, two reception room detached lodge house with a detached garage which has full planning permission approval for conversion into a three bedroom chalet bungalow and lawful planning permission to build a detached single storey flat roof building (triple garage, storage, playroom and a personal gym). Occupying a secluded plot measuring 0.83 of an acre, adjoining a green open space with no neighbours and conveniently located for all local amenities.

South Lodge was originally built circa 1885 as The Gatehouse to Holmwood House. The property was substantially enlarged in 1976 but owned by our clients since 1996. South Lodge has managed to retain much of its original charm including open fireplaces, ceiling cornicing and dado rails, however, would benefit from some modernisation and lend itself to further extension (subject to the necessary planning consents).
