We have pleasure in offering to the market this fascinating individual double fronted character home which offers a deceptive and versatile level of accommodation, requiring a general programme of modernisation and refurbishment and providing a blank canvas for those looking to place their own mark on a home.

This interesting one off property lies close to the heart of this highly regarded and much sought after Vale of Belvoir village providing considerable scope to create an individual home which currently comprises an initial entrance hall, two main receptions, kitchen and utility room with additional potential reception located off a rear entrance hall. Two separate staircases rise to a first floor split level landing and lead to three bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities and separate main bathroom.

In addition to the main accommodation a superb range of brick and pantiled outbuildings lie to the rear of the property and subject to consent, offer further scope for conversion into additional accommodation or possible annexe space providing ancillary rooms for extended family.

The property occupies an interesting plot which in total approaches two thirds of an acre with vehicular access to the side leading down into an established orchard at the rear providing fantastic outdoor space, generous by modern standards.

The village of Bottesford is well equipped with local amenities including primary and secondary schools, a range of local shops, doctors and dentists, several public houses and restaurants, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham which gives a fast rail link to London's Kings Cross in just over an hour. The A52 and A1 are also close by providing excellent road access.
