Windsor Lodge is the last remaining cottage out off the four that have been converted to a high standard throughout. In purchasing this beautiful Grade II listed cottage you will not just be acquiring a new home but part of our national heritage. his unique development is the separation, into four single dwellings, of the Old Hall at Clifton on Dunsmore, Warwickshire. The Old Hall was originally two individual cottages and a large attached barn set in a substantial holding on the outskirts of the small village close to the historic village green. The cluster of buildings forming a small terrace was eventually gentrified in the Nineteenth Century to form one large residence with paddocks, stables and substantial gardens. Further development and the construction of a large brick and timber attached pavilion to the western extremity of the property, at the start of the 20th Century, further extended the Old Hall to provide in excess of 7000 sq ft of living space for family and staff and has been owned by a number of well to do families over the past 150 years. With its core dating back to the 17th Century the original gentrification appears to have been undertaken in a manner that has caused minimal structural compromise and consequently there is minimal alteration required to separate the whole structure back into its original individual cottages. Windsor Lodge is now ready for occupation.
