About this property

  • Haroldstone Lodge is a charming detached house, principally built in Cotswold stone under a slate tiled roof, thought to be around 120 years old. The property has been in the same family for nearly 70 years and would now benefit from modernisation and upgrading but has great scope for extension (subject to the necessary consents) or developing further. Outside there is a detached stone double garage and behind the house is a block of former timber stables. There is a large level area of garden here, with further level lawns to the front of the house. There are a couple of small paddocks alongside the driveway, with the remainder of the land made up of steep hillside running up to Crickley Hill Country Park.

    Approached along a long private driveway, the house sits off the lane on a small plateau offering lovely southerly views.

    The accommodation is over two floors, with a large sitting room with working fireplace to the front, and a dining room leading on to the kitchen at the rear. Also at the front is an old boot room or possible breakfast room. There is a room most recently used as a ground floor bedroom, with a cloakroom off, and an easy access shower within the bedroom. A second doorway comes off this room into the inner hallway with the staircase to the first floor. In addition, at the rear is a sun room. On the first floor are four bedrooms with some beautiful countryside views and a family bathroom. There are some lovely high ceilings, original floorboards, and fireplaces within the house. The property is offered with no onward chain.

A little private oasis which does require some imagination, but offering great privacy and I've been on some wonderful walks around here.
