Situation

Park Lodge is situated in a wonderfully quiet and private position with no close neighbours in the rural hamlet of Rowlestone. It has some lovely rural views over the surrounding countryside and is within a short drive of the beautiful Black Mountains.

Park Lodge

Dating originally from around 1728, the cottage was subject to a significant extension in the 1960’s. The old part of the cottage retains a good degree of character including exposed stone walls and beams.
The versatile accommodation offers a generous kitchen/breakfast room with pantry, a good sized dining area with electric Aga opening to the sitting room with a wood-burning stove and a double glazed, hardwood conservatory with under floor heating overlooking the garden.
Off the kitchen, a utility/store room gives access to a double bedroom and en-suite shower room.
On the first floor are 3 further bedrooms, 2 doubles and a single with its own W.C and there is a family shower room.

The Outside

The double entrance gates lead to a long stone driveway towards the house and as you enter there is a small copse on the right and small paddock on the left.
Adjacent to the house is a period stone barn (approx. 11m x 5m externally) currently used for storage but offers a huge amount of scope for other uses.
There are a number of other useful greenhouses and timber storage sheds and extensive gently sloping gardens containing some mature trees.
A small brook runs down the eastern and southern edge of the property and creates a lovely small pond at the bottom of the garden
The cottage would benefit from some updating but offers a huge amount of potential
