2 Inchcape Hall is one of a pair of semi-detached cottages constructed of brick, timber clad & tile hung elevations. The cottages were converted in the late 1980’s from the old village hall, which was bought and converted in 1932 in memory of the 1st Earl Inchcape by his daughter and son in law. The property now provides comfortable accommodation and is situated within the quiet and picturesque village of Lake in the Woodford Valley. It also benefits from a walled front garden and a rear garden backing onto the village green.
Lake is an intimate, quiet and well regarded village in the ever popular Woodford Valley. Approximately 2 miles from Amesbury and 7 miles from the Cathedral City of Salisbury with its excellent range of amenities – shopping, cultural, educational and leisure as well as a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). There is a taxi- buzz service through the village that runs to both Amesbury and Salisbury.

2 Inchcape Hall has a long driveway that leads from the road to the parking and turning area, providing spaces for two cars (NB: the owners of the neighbouring property have a pedestrian access only across the driveway). There is an access hatch into the “cellar” (which has restricted head height – approximately 4’), which provides an excellent storage area under the house and also houses the oil fired boiler. The front garden is a very private and fully decked courtyard which provides an excellent outside sitting and dining space, with a gate that leads out onto the driveway. The rear garden is very cleverly designed to give privacy with plentiful flower beds filled with mature shrubs and trees whilst maintaining a good sized area of lawn. There is a good sized wooden shed and a gate that leads onto the village green, which we understand can be used for local meets, games and parties.
