The property occupies a central location within this idyllic Trent Valley village, formerly two separate cottages knocked into, to create one larger dwelling which occupies a substantial plot with mature gardens totalling in the region of a 1/3rd of an acre.

The cottage sides on to the entrance from Manor Lane and has a set of timber five bar gates opening onto a tarmac driveway providing ample car standing and turning space.

The gardens then continue round to the side which was traditionally the front elevation of the two cottages being predominantly laid to lawn, containing mature shrubs and trees with boundaries enclosed by hedgerows and fencing. Further areas of garden continue to the rear where there is the oil storage tank and greenhouse.

It is worth noting that due to the size of the plot the property acquires and an extensive road frontage it may well be possible to redevelop the site subject to the necessary planning constraints. This may also be aided by the ownership of the driveway to the rear of the plot providing secondary access off Manor Lane which is owned by Holly Cottage in part and provides shared access to a number of neighbouring properties.

We are led to believe by Rushcliffe Borough Council the property falls into Council Tax Band E.
