We purchased West Lodge which from the carvings on the beams in the loft was constructed in 1878. Lodge house to the nearby Warmwell House. We fully renovated it, installed mains gas central heating and a Rayburn. An extension and hard wood conservatory were built in 2008. There is a fireplace yet to be opened up in the second bedroom. There is a capped ancient stone, chalk well in the garden which would make a stunning feature which is untouched.
Proximity to main line/ train station for London is excellent, 3 miles at Moreton Railway Station. The property is within the catchment for Broadmayne first school, Puddletown/St Osmunds, and Thomas Hardye School.
Kids likes: no neighbours, huge garden for running and practising golf etc,watching wildlife, (doe and her fawn visited regularly twice a day to eat the windfalls), nature lovers paradise with night jars.woodpeckers, partridges, pheasants, deer, bats, frequent residents. Very little light pollution so star and moon gazing is incredible, building dens in the garden.
