The Dell is a fascinating individual detached substantial home originally completed in the 1970s by a developer for his own occupation, located in the former walled gardens of the nearby Grange. The property was constructed to quite a unique design which offers great scope and affords a considerable level of accommodation in excess of 4000 sq ft, all of which is located on an attractive established and generous plot which approaches half an acre, at the heart of this highly regarded Conservation Village.

The property is set well back from the road in a particularly private setting and offers an excellent level of accommodation which in the main is likely to appeal to families, but would be ideal for those with dependent relatives as there is potential for an annexe style suite to the ground floor. This comprises a large reception, bedroom and study area leading off an initial hallway, linking through to a utility which could potentially provide a kitchen area making this initial part of the house almost a self-sufficient space, particularly as there is scope, subject to consent, to convert part or all of the integral garaging.

The majority of the accommodation lies to the first floor and is particularly versatile in its layout, leading off a large central hallway with feature stairwell, comprising a spacious open plan dining kitchen appointed with a generous range of modern units and integrated appliances, the main reception located to the rear of the property, leads out onto a balcony area and affords fantastic views into the garden and paddock land beyond. Adjacent to this is a formal dining room which could be utilised as an additional bedroom.

The property offers five double bedrooms in addition to the versatile receptions with the master suite having a large ensuite bathroom, separate family bathroom and additional secondary shower room. Three of the main bedrooms lead out onto a substantial balcony to the front creating an interesting and unique feature.

The property occupies a delightful generous plot approaching half an acre and located close to the heart of this highly regarded and well placed village, within a private setting and offering a substantial level of off road parking and integral triple garage with workshop. The rear garden offers a great degree of privacy and is well stocked with established trees and shrubs, overlooking adjacent paddock at the rear.

Overall in its current guise, The Dell is a truly interesting substantial detached family home but with some general cosmetic upgrading could also be turned into a stunning contemporary dwelling with its level of accommodation and delightful plot, therefore a home that could be acquired for its current accommodation but also its future potential and viewing is highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.

Whatton lies on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir and has its own village hall. Further amenities can be found in the adjacent village of Aslockton including well regarded primary school, public house, tea room, post office/shop and railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham. Additional amenities can be found in the nearby market town of Bingham and the village is bypassed by the A52 which provides good road access to the A46, A1 and M1.
