An enchanting grade II Listed 1920s lodge house set in grounds and paddocks of over 6.5 acres

The Little Lodge is a striking grade II Listed rural retreat situated off The Avenue, Bucklebury, a popular local address. The house sits in an enviable plot of over 6 acres and has delightful rural views to the rear of the property. The Little Lodge is dates back to the 1920's and is a wooden clad 'Hansel & Gretel' style cottage under a glazed clay tile roof.

In addition to the main house there is a one bedroom studio annexe and in the garage complex there is a playroom/gym.

A large, level lawn surrounds the house, interspersed with mature specimen trees and shrubs. There are spectacular far reaching views from the garden across the surrounding countryside. Beyond the garden is almost 5 acres of paddock land with separate access from the lane.
