Forest Lodge Farm is an impressive family home occupying a delightful setting with mature grounds extending around 3.5 acres. An additional 4 acres of paddock and woodland may be available to rent, and additional land with outbuildings may be available by separate treaty. The property was originally constructed in the 1970's and has over the years been tastefully extended to provide generously proportioned accommodation throughout. The rear of the home is south facing and therefore enjoys a sunny aspect the majority of the day.OVERVIEW

On entering the home you are greeted with a generous reception hall with turn staircase to the first floor, Cloakroom, understairs cloaks cupboard, and doors to all principle rooms. The extremely spacious lounge enjoys fantastic views over the gardens, the focal point of the room being the wood burning stove. Additionally there is a formal dining room, snug and 20' kitchen/breakfast room. Off the kitchen is a utility room which in turn gives access to a useful home office with store room off this. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a pleasant conservatory which can take advantage of the lovely garden and lake outlook.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms with four enjoying wonderful views. The master suite has a dressing room and en-suite and there is a family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms.

The private, mature grounds surrounding the home are arranged to include formal lawn, patio, lake, paddock etc. The approach is via wrought iron gate with remote control which gives way a large sweeping driveway which provides parking for many vehicles and leads to the triple garage.

To the rear of the property is a large lawn area circa one acre in size with a good size patio area, perfect for entertaining. A particular feature of the garden is the main lake with varying depths of water (reducing around the edges to allow for safety), water lillies are abundant throughout the late spring/summer and the pond is stocked with Carp, Trench and Rudd, and is also suitable for wild swimming. There are also smaller ponds beyond, and a full length hardwood greenhouse.

There is access to a stream frontage via a fenced and gated area. The stream runs from Delph Woods and enters the River Stour at Canford Weir.
