Property Snapshot

The Lodge is a wonderful country bungalow that is turnkey ready. The current owners have completely transformed this once dilapidated building. Unlike many other homes in the forest, this property is freehold, making it potentially mortgageable despite the largely timber construction.

The property is externally clad in log lap and is fully insulated inside, making for a very homely and welcoming interior. There is also excellent scope for extension, subject to relevant planning permissions.

In addition to the main property there is a very useful cabin. This would be ideal as a studio, home office or potentially an ancillary annexe for guests or relatives, subject to any relevant permissions. The cabin even has the possibility for Air B&B, which is likely to be very popular amongst visitors with so many local attractions on the doorstep, resulting in excellent revenue potential.

Description
The property is approached from Dowles Road, Button Oak via a woodland track, maintained by the Forestry Commission. The track leads you on a wonderful journey through the heart of the Wyre Forest and culminates at the cattle grid, on your right is a private gated entrance to The Lodge. A long block-paved driveway from here sweeps up to a large flat parking area which can cater for multiple vehicles. A gate from the driveway leads directly into the forest and wooden-decked steps lead to the bungalow. [** please note the property can’t be seen in its entirety from the lane so early on site viewing is essential].

A double-glazed front door opens into the entrance hall with useful space for coats and boots. At the heart of the property is a fantastic open-plan living, dining and kitchen space which is incredibly light and airy and enjoys wonderful views of the valley and forest.
