Character cottage with many original features
Somerset House, 222 High Street
Littleworth Cross Lodge is believed to date from 1872, built to house the coachman, groom and their families on the Littleworth Estate. Originally two cottages, this pretty ironstone Lodge has been renovated over the years, most recently by the current owners, to create a wonderful family home, while still retaining many of the original features. The spacious entrance hall leads to the heart of the home, with an open-plan kitchen/dining room with AGA which overlooks the sitting room with wood burner and garden beyond. The dual aspect playroom/study features an open fireplace and the downstairs bedroom with adjacent shower room is a flexible space for use as a guest/occasional bedroom or an additional reception room. Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. EPC Rating E.

Approached by five-bar gates, Littleworth Cross Lodge is bordered by mature trees, garden walls and hedging. The wonderful level walled rear garden garden is mostly laid to lawn and sheltered by a stunning original red brick wall, creating a magical garden setting, the perfect backdrop for the numerous climbing roses, clematis and wisteria that bloom from spring to autumn. Feature borders are planted to create seasonal interest, with fruit trees, the established vegetable garden and greenhouse positioned to the rear of the garden. An attractive terrace across the side and rear of the property is accessed from the sitting room. A double glazed garage has the potential to be insulated and become a great place from which to work whilst enjoying views of the garden. There is a greenhouse and timber shed for storage. A covered stone-paved area adjacent to the garage is perfect for entertaining. A wrought iron gate leads to the side courtyard and is an ideal area for log storage and allows access to the house.
