** WE HAVE THE PLEASURE OF OFFERING TO THE MARKET THIS FIVE BEDROOM DETACHED RESIDENCE (APPROX 2,238 SQ FT), OCCUPYING A WONDERFUL CORNER PLOT EXTENDING TO A THIRD OF AN ACRE IN A CONSERVATION AREA WITH IMMACULATE GARDENS AND A SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED 4 CAR GARAGE **
Chesterfield House is a substantial, double bay fronted, five bedroomed residence designed and constructed by the locally renowned builder Joe Searson as a bespoke commission for a Nottinghamshire businessman in 1926. The quality of the build is testament to the skills and craftsmanship of this local company and of the arts and crafts period.
Chesterfield House has had only three owners in its 95 years which has resulted in the retention of a wealth of superb original features such as the striking coloured leaded lights by Nottingham based firm 'Pope and Parr', oak parquet flooring throughout most of the ground floor, pitch pine panelled doors with bronzed door furniture, plate racks, deep skirting boards and off the kitchen a rare surviving original period tiled pantry. This superb property is now brought to the market for the first time in nearly 55 years and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners.
The house is light and airy, due to its high ceilings and the fact that many rooms have large dual aspect coloured leaded light windows. It sits well in its impressive corner plot, which extends to circa 0.337 of an acre.
Chesterfield House is a traditional 1920s period home with two large formal reception rooms. Its design boasts many features which make it unique such as the impressive staircase and galleried landing with corner stained glass window, two story eight pane corner bay window in the main reception room and principal bedroom and rooms which are all well proportioned.
The accommodation offers in the region of 2,238 sq ft of living space with the following ground floor layout comprising an entrance porch, entrance hall, WC, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/diner, rear entrance porch, snug and a utility. There is a gas fired central heating boiler with radiators to the majority of the rooms, and an alarm system. The first floor galleried landing leads to five bedrooms, including four double rooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The property has been well maintained with potential for further modernisation.
The property occupies a substantial third of an acre plot with stone walled boundaries to all sides, positioned in a Conservation Area on the corner of Church Street and Titchfield Avenue with vehicular access off Church Street behind timber gates. There is a driveway car standing area in front of a substantial brick and tile detached garage, which could accommodate 4 vehicles, with 13'8" high vaulted ceiling and two sets of large timber opening front doors, which offers a fantastic space for anyone who is a car enthusiast or likes a workshop/garage arrangement with lots of room.
In our opinion this area could potentially be developed to create room for an additional dwelling subject to obtaining necessary planning permission. The sale arrangements will include an overage provision to reflect such an eventuality.
The gardens to this property are some of the best we have seen for some time - beautifully maintained on all sides enjoying a most delightful south east facing front aspect. The front lawn is a 1920s tennis court and continues to be immaculately maintained, surrounded by paths leading to all sides of the garden. The original tennis posts are included in the sale and are a rare survival of the period. There are an extensive range of mature plants, shrubs and trees offering some sheltered areas at the end of the plot. A gate gives access onto Titchfield Avenue, and there are further immaculate gardens to the side of the house with lawn, a central rose bed, and ample borders with plants and shrubs. A winding pathway leads to the rear of the house with a large tarmacadam hard standing area and a pedestrian gate leading to Church Street.
This property is situated with close proximity to local amenities.
Overall, viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the size of accommodation and quality of gardens on offer.

However, as our property e-valuation tool provides you with the requested valuation for a property almost immediately after you submit the property details and agree to these terms and conditions, the contract between us for the provision to you of our services ends almost immediately after it has been entered into.

(c) Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
