Gate Lodge
The original two storey house, built in the early 1900's, was there before Santosha and is still in existence. Although it is in need of renovation it is a great asset and could be easily modernised. The property is a two storey two bedroom house and is approximately 800 sq ft. It is located just beyond the main entrance gates.

As you approach the main house you will see it is surrounded by lawn and a great variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is a friendly court yard to the rear of the house with plenty of parking. To the front of the property is a large patio area that has the most fantastic southerly views. There is a great selection of fruit trees, including a Victoria plum, cherry, wild crab apple and wild plums. In addition, there are raised beds that have blackcurrants, strawberries and gooseberries and a kitchen garden located just off the kitchen/dining room.

The land has a fabulous walk going around the property and plenty of space to enjoy horse riding or other outdoor activities.
