DESCRIPTION

Whitmore Lodge offers a wonderful opportunity to improve, extend or redevelop the property. The house has a typical 1930 s double front façade and is situated in the centre of a substantial plot and offers scope for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents. The house has accommodation arranged over two floors and includes an entrance hallway, cloakroom / WC, two reception rooms, kitchen and garden room. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.

Externally there is a private driveway with extensive lawns to the side and rear of the property.

There are a further range of timber sheds and the gardens around the property have been well maintained and are predominately laid to lawn with planted herbaceous borders with trees and shrubs.
