Grade I listed former hunting lodge
£299,950: Grade I listed former hunting lodge in parkland, close to Worcester

Droitwich, Worcestershire


This former hunting lodge in parkland, six miles from Worcester, has views to die for. Great care has gone into the restoration of Grade I listed Falcon Tower, and the result is a home full of 17th century character and 21st century mod cons.

There are lovely oak beams in the kitchen, a generous dining room, spiral stairs to a quadruple-aspect sitting room, a bedroom with an impressive stone fireplace and a spa-inspired bathroom built into the roof space.

Trains from Worcester reach London in about two hours 20 minutes.
