This attractive semi-detached character property forms part of a desirable conversion of former farm buildings completed by Messrs Laing homes circa 2003, enjoying a private rural position with the benefit of landscaped lawned gardens and an adjacent private paddock enclosure extending to approximately two thirds of an acre. The pleasant rural outlook enjoys a great degree of privacy without being directly overlooked.

The property has been comprehensively upgraded in the last few years by the present owners and is presented to an excellent standard throughout. Recent improvements in 2017/2018 include a superb 'Aristocraft' contemporary fitted kitchen with integral appliances; replacement doors and windows (except one); refitted en-suite shower room and replacement gas fired central heating combination boiler.

The ground floor space is arranged in a well designed open-plan style to provide a most impressive combined living/dining/kitchen space. The dining hall and lounge both feature Amtico quality wood effect vinyl flooring, with the dining area and kitchen both having arched double doors opening out to the rear patio garden.

Also off the dining area is a guest cloakroom with Amtico wood effect vinyl floor, wall tiling to half height, pedestal hand basin and low level wc.

The lounge has a full height arched picture window to the rear plus double doors opening out to the landscaped front lawns, with views of the paddock beyond. The room also features a superb 'Chesneys' gas-fired replica log-burning stove set on granite hearth in recess with lighting above.

The splendid kitchen area measures almost 19' in length and is fitted with a comprehensive range of contemporary graphite wall and base cabinets complemented by white quartz work surfaces including an integral sink and drainer with Franke hot tap for instant boiling water. Integrated AEG appliances include an electric oven, microwave/ grill, dishwasher, refridgerator and freezer. There is also a matching large central peninsula unit with quartz breakfast bar and integrated AEG induction hob plus concealed vertical rising extractor hood.

To the first floor the light and airy landing gives way to four bedrooms plus the principal family bathroom.

The master bedroom features a recently updated en-suite shower room with stylish 'Roper Rhodes' vanity unit featuring hand basin and low level wc, plus cubicle with digital thermostatically-controlled mixer shower. The second and third bedrooms both have 'Sharps' fitted twin double wardrobes, whilst the fourth bedroom measures a generous 11'6 x 6'8 .

The bathroom suite includes a panelled bath with glass screen and mixer shower above, plus pedestal hand basin, low level wc and chrome heated towel rail.

Outside, to the rear of the property is a fully enclosed hard landscaped patio garden enjoying the afternoon and evening sunshine with a West facing aspect and gateway to the courtyard drive. The larger front gardens are landscaped with a neat level lawn, shrubbery planting and a paved pathway with gate out to the garage and car-parking area.

The communal parking area is shared between four properties, each having a single garage and either one or two private spaces for each property. There is also one additional parking space for visitors.

Hampton Lodge has a designated parking space for one vehicle in front of its garage. Adjoining the garage is a sizeable brick-built store, both outbuildings having electric power & lighting.

Bordering the garden is a private paddock enclosure with gateway between the two, additionally with a right of access to the paddock via a private shared footpath accessible from the track leading to Castle Barns from Castle Road.

The paddock is screened to the rear by a line of well established conifers.

The approach to Castle Barns is particularly pleasant, following a lengthy private driveway which passes through the grounds of Lea Castle Farm with delightful countryside views stretching ahead of you before reaching the private courtyard.

Surrounded by open countryside and with country walks almost on the doorstep, the location also has the advantage of being within walking distance of Cookley village which offers a good range of amenities including primary school, post office, late night convenient store, takeaways, village inns, church, doctors surgery and an excellent modern sports and social club with playing fields bordering the Staffs-Worcs canal.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are all connected. Tenure is freehold though a service charge of £40 per calendar month is payable to the residents management company, Castle Barns Limited. The purchaser of Hampton Lodge will become a shareholder of the management company.

The location is highly convenient for those wishing to commute to the West Midlands conurbation whilst enjoying a private rural setting and the benefits of village life. Viewing is highly recommended.

Council Tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, the property being rated as Band 'F'.
