dens, with games consoles and tellies. It’s ideal for when they have friends round and it means everyone can have their own space.”
Upstairs there are two more substantial bedroom suites and two large double bedrooms, one to the front and one to the rear, all located off a gallery-style landing.
The garden grounds include a double garage, mature trees and shrubs which flower throughout the changing seasons and a pleasant decked area with seating.
The sloping lawn leads up to a small wooded area and the original Victorian summer house, and there is plenty of space for hide and seek.
“The gardens are great – big enough, but not too huge to be unmanageable,” says Linda. “We have loved living here and it’s been great to find out snippets of the house’s history.
“We were out painting the gates one day and a gentleman who lives nearby popped in to tell us the gates were just about the only original ones left in Busby because the rest had been taken for metal during the war. He told us ours had been hidden away and had survived!”
She adds: “It’s great to have those local history connections. We will miss Westwood Lodge – it’s a very easy house to live in.”
The rooms offer space and light, while the windows open out on to beautiful gardens
