A beautiful and historic residential estate with a Grade II Listed, Georgian mansion at it's core
Horseheath Lodge is an immaculate residential estate built between 1815 and 1825. The Estate is centred around the historic Grade II Listed Georgian house, which has been tastefully updated by the current owner to offer three reception rooms and six bedrooms. There is further potential to add accommodation on the vacant second floor, as well as in the extensive cellars.
Adjacent to the house lies a converted outbuilding with cinema and games room, as well as changing rooms for the outdoor swimming pool.
The Estate also has six cottages let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies and a large number of outbuildings, in particular a modern barn with space for offices, storage or further accommodation subject to planning consent.

The paddocks form part of the 189 acres of land that surrounds the house on all sides offering privacy and protection.
