We have pleasure in offering to the market this attractive double fronted period home which has been significantly enhanced over the years, extended to create in excess of 3000 sq ft of internal accommodation but more recently tastefully refurbished to a high standard, combining elements of the original traditional architecture with the benefits of contemporary living.

This wonderful home would be ideal for families looking for a well proportioned and versatile level of space, well positioned with excellent road links to local amenities and ease of access to local schools including the highly regarded Gunthorpe primary school within walking distance.

The property offers five spacious double bedrooms with stunning master suite offering initial dressing area opening out into a large double bedroom with Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden with wonderful views beyond. There is a superbly appointed contemporary ensuite shower room plus well proportioned main family bathroom and additional shower room.

To the ground floor there is an excellent level of accommodation with five reception areas as well as a superb refitted kitchen with generous range of contemporary units and high specification integrated appliances, having dual aspect and bi-fold doors leading out onto the rear terrace as well as linking through into a utility room and spacious family room with clear glass roof lantern, creating a wonderful L shaped living/entertaining space which will undoubtedly become the hub of the home.

The property benefits from gas central heating, UPVC double glazing with many of the windows having been replaced, yet retaining the original character particularly to the main facade.

The property occupies an excellent plot, generous by modern standards, with electric gate access onto a substantial driveway providing more than adequate parking and integral double garage. The enclosed rear garden has a large paved terrace, lawn and established borders.

Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the convenience of the location and accommodation on offer.

The village of Gunthorpe is a very pretty Trent-side village having a primary school and thriving local community. Additional facilities are available in the nearby market town of Bingham and in the adjacent village of Lowdham there is a doctor's surgery and train station with links to Nottingham and Newark. The village is ideally placed close to the A6097 which provides links to the A46 and A52 for commuting to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester.
