    About this property

    • This charming Grade II Listed home forms part of a converted Manor House, converted into individual homes by the current owners in 1972.

      Dating in parts to Elizabethan times and forming the largest part of the house, Woodcock Lodge is set within extensive landscaped grounds with a moat.

      On the ground floor there is a good sized entrance hall which leads to the main reception areas which include a large drawing room with panelled walls and wood burning stove, library and a modern custom built, open plan kitchen/dining room.

      Upstairs, on the first floor are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The main bedroom features a vaulted ceiling, dressing area and en suite bathroom. Many of these rooms enjoy wonderful views over the gardens and surrounding woodland.

      Set in around 8.28 acres the house has the benefit of a private secluded garden which extends to the side of the house.

      The drawing room and library open onto a south facing private patio with two formal rose beds and lawn lined by formal Yew hedges.

      The bluebell woods lead onto a sunken garden with formal walks and former tennis court. Other residents have limited access to the woodland and there is a shared access road leading to three further properties.

      Within the garden is a good sized outbuilding which could be converted (STPP) to suit your own requirements. Historically, planning permission has been granted for a detached double garage. These plans may still be valid as other works within this permission were carried out. Our client has copies of these plans if required.

    I love the position of this house - its tucked away at the end of a country lane and enjoys the most amazing gardens which include a lovely woodland with bluebells carpeting it in Spring. A true oasis outside of London
