**Landmark house on exceptional plot extending to 0.73 acres** Beautiful country setting**Wolvey Parish** Planning for Substantial Annexe **Amazing potential for extended family
General - Bayton Lodge is very much a landmark house designed with considerable imagination and flair in the style of a French chateau with a turret as the principal feature. The property is on a superb plot extending to approximately 0.73 acres in a beautiful country setting. The Lodge was built with meticulous attention to detail with mellow brick elevations, stone detailing, inglenooks and beamed ceilings. There is considerable potential to further extend the property creating a magnificent country residence suitable for an extended family. The accommodation revolves around the stunning open plan living area on the ground floor. There is also a sitting room, living kitchen and conservatory. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with fabulous contemporary en-suite, two further large double bedrooms one of which accesses a balcony and massive family bathroom. There is a fourth bedroom in the adjoining annexe.
Location - Bayton Lodge is located in the Parish of Wolvey. In Wolvey itself, there is a vibrant community with an unusually extensive range of amenities including a doctor's surgery, a general post office, three pubs and a primary school. The villagers take great pride of their home and in the recent past Wolvey has won the Gold Award in the Bloom Awards for the Environment every year between 2012 and 2018. On the edge of the village there is a Wetland Nature Reserve which is owned by the Parish Council. There are some lovely walks in the area with footpaths running off Wolds Lane. Sporting facilities include a bowling club, a cricket club, a golf course and 11driving range. There is a considerable amount of information about Wolvey on the village's own website www.wolvey.org.
