This delightful mid terrace character cottage was constructed in the late Victorian period within a terrace known as Palings Cottages. The property is situated upon the fringe of this sought after Trent Valley village in walking distance of the central shops, school and amenities, situated upon a large plot with the house being set well back from the road with a frontage laid to lawn and a block paved driveway for two cars. The rear garden is a great feature to the property approximately 175 feet in length with various areas laid to lawn, paving, decked seating, vegetable plot and a lovely open aspect beyond the rear boundary over the neighbouring paddock.

The house itself offers a wealth of charm and character and deceptively spacious accommodation including an entrance lobby, two separate reception rooms, fitted kitchen and a rear lean-to/boot room. On the first floor a landing with balustrade leads to two bedrooms and a good sized bathroom at the rear, further stairway leads up to the loft room providing additional versatile space and an occasional extra bedroom.

A multi paned timber panelled front door opens into an entrance lobby.

ENTRANCE LOBBY (1.35m x 1.12m (4'5" x 3'8"))
With coat hooks, window to side and a further obscure glazed and timber door to the lounge.

LOUNGE (3.96m x 3.35m (13'0" x 11'0"))
With a feature wood burning stove inset to a exposed brick chimney breast, a fireplace with a tiled hearth, window to front, exposed floorboards, tv and phone points and door through to the dining room.

DINING ROOM (3.35m x 3.07m (11'0" x 10'1"))
A second reception room with a feature cast iron fireplace, exposed and stripped back pine panelling with a door and turning staircase rising to the first floor and storage cupboard beneath with light and shelving, sash window to rear and door with stained glass opening into the kitchen.

KITCHEN (3.45m x 2.44m (11'4" x 8'0"))
The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of cream Shaker style cabinets and drawers finished with timber effect work surfaces extending into a small breakfast far and having a tiled surround and stainless steel sink, built-in appliances include a double eye level oven and grill with combination microwave to the side, gas hob and canopy extractor above, large window affording a lovely outlook down the rear garden, tiled floor, ceiling spotlights and sliding door through to the rear boot room.

REAR BOOT ROOM (2.77m x 1.30m (9'1" x 4'3"))
Branching off the kitchen and having an external obscure glazed and timber panelled door out to the rear garden, this rear lean-to acts as a boot room from the garden with a timber framed and poly-carbonate roof, tiled flooring, electric meter and fuse board.

A turning staircase rises up to a return landing with balustrade, a secondary staircase rising up to the loft room, ceiling spotlights, access to two bedrooms and the bathroom.

BEDROOM ONE (3.96m x 3.35m (13'0" x 11'0"))
A lovely sized double master bedroom with a window to front, recesses to either side of the chimney breast ideal for wardrobes.

BEDROOM TWO (3.35m x 2.26m max (11'0" x 7'5" max))
A single bedroom with a feature cast iron fireplace and a window to rear.

BATHROOM (3.53m x 2.46m (11'7" x 8'1"))
A large bathroom with a traditional four piece white suite including a wc, wash hand basin, enamelled bath with tiled surround and a separate shower with hinged glazed screen and an electric shower fitment, heated towel rail, obscure window to rear and airing cupboard with slatted shelving and housing the Worcester gas central heating condensing and combination boiler. Access to a boarded loft area via a retractable, hinged, Fakro ladder.

A solid timber step ladder style staircase rises up to the loft room which provides additional space for a variety of uses including occasional bedroom if required having exposed brickwork and timbers to the pitch of the roof, ceiling downlights, storage cupboards built into the eaves, balustrade around the staircase with skylight window to rear.

The property is situated within walking distance of the centre of the village with shops and amenities.

The house is set well back from the road with a large front garden approx. 70 feet, including a block paved driveway for up to two cars and a paved pathway continues alongside the lawned frontage edged with flowerbeds and up to the front door with cobbled steps and borders. To the side and rear of the neighbouring properties there is a pedestrian right of way and access to the rear garden with a timber gate providing access to the rear garden.

A fantastic feature to the property having an initial block paved terrace outside the kitchen with outside tap and light and fenced bin store. The garden then continues for 175 feet laid to shaped lawn areas edged with well stocked borders and flowerbeds, a lovely raised timber decked seating area half way down the garden is screened with trellis and a pergola with over hanging mature grape vines. A further area of garden with raised beds retained by timber sleepers, bench seats and arch continuing leading through to the bottom of the garden which has been laid out to a vegetable plot with timber shed and composting in the far corner and an open aspect over the neighbouring paddocks.

BRICK BUILT OUTHOUSE (2.44m x 2.13m (8'0" x 7'0"))
The property also affords a brick built outhouse located to the rear of the neighbouring property but with a right of access to gain entry to it. The outhouse is brick built with a pantile roof and a timber latch door ideal as a garden store.

The village of Lowdham is well equipped with local amenities including a primary school and nursery, local shops and several public houses. Further amenities can be found in Bingham and Southwell as well as the cities of Nottingham and Leicester. Lowdham is ideally situated for road communications via the A46 and A52 and also has excellent rail and bus links.

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