Believed originally to have been an early 19th Century toll house, Grove Lodge has been extended and extensively renovated by the current owner. Great care has been taken to preserve the original character of the house whilst bringing it in line with 21st Century living; the result is an impressive thoughtfully-planned characterful property with sympathetic additions, enjoying the most stunning setting and location.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and is light and well-planned. There is a well-proportioned living room with French doors to both the front and rear in addition to two large picture windows to the sides taking full advantage of the fabulous open countryside views. The lovely dining room, with focal fireplace and French doors onto the rear terrace is open to the adjoining kitchen which has a range of hand built base and wall units. There are quality fitted appliances under a granite work surface and an oil fired two oven Aga, as well as a two oven built-in electric cooker. To the rear of the house is a further well-proportioned reception room which has an attractive fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors leading to the enclosed rear terrace. The first floor accommodation can be found leading from the welcoming hallway and comprises a beautifully-appointed master bedroom with en-suite and double doors with Juliet balcony opening onto the spectacular elevated views. There is a further en-suite bedroom also with Juliet balcony and two further bedrooms, one currently used as a study. A stylish family bathroom completes the accommodation.


Grove Lodge is set back from the road and accessed via a long private driveway flanked either side by open farmland. The house occupies an enviable rural position surrounded by open countryside and enjoys magnificent far reaching views towards the Cotswolds. The beautifully landscaped garden is predominantly laid to lawn and benefits from mature trees and thoughtfully planted borders. There is a sizable paved entertaining terrace at the rear of the house enclosed by a stone wall and an exquisite timber summer house at the far end of the garden in an elevated position. There is a good sized gravel parking area as you approach the house and double garage with workshop which has the potential to be converted to ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
