A charming and beautifully presented detached Grade II Listed 18th Century lodge house situated on the edge of the grounds of Midford Castle which is approximately ¼ mile away down a private drive. The village of Midford is situated about three miles south of Bath city centre.
Midford Tower Lodge is attached to the ornate gate leading to Midford Castle off the Midford Road. The property sits in extensive grounds approaching a quarter of an acre and comprises two main structures - the Lodge itself and a detached annexe with double garage under. There is a small two floor outbuilding and log store between the two main buildings. The gardens surround the property on three sides and are divided into formal areas, orchard and wildflower meadow. At the bottom of the meadow, there is access to private woodland. The Lodge, annex and gardens enjoy superb views to the north and east over to Tucking Mill and Combe Down.
The double garage with studio and shower room above has planning permission to be further converted into living accommodation. The ensuite studio is already being used for occasional AirB&B but the whole building would make an excellent one/two bedroom annex for income generation or a dependent relative. Alternatively, it would be a perfect space for running a business from home.
