An excellent opportunity to acquire a substantial individual detached three storey home, occupying a secluded established plot which extends to approximately quarter of an acre, situated on the edge of this highly regarded and much sought after village.
The initial inconspicuous facade of Appletree Cottage hides a superb spacious family orientated home which approaches 2600 sq ft, originally completed in the 1980s but subsequently significantly extended and reconfigured to create an interesting and versatile home perfect for growing or extended families requiring additional space for offices, guest suite or teenager's annexe. In its current orientation the property offers four well proportioned double bedrooms split over two floors with the master suite affording wonderful panoramic views to the front across Nottinghamshire countryside with the Vale of Belvoir escarpment on the horizon, contemporary bathroom and separate shower room.
The main living accommodation is situated at ground level with three main rooms flowing out into a generous established garden creating a superb entertaining space. The heart of the home is a stunning contemporary kitchen, beautifully appointed with a generous range of fitted units and integrated appliances, linking through into a formal dining room and fantastic family room with glass addition to the rear looking into the garden, plus access through into a cinema room and study.
Overall due to the nature of the property viewing is an absolute must to appreciate the vast amount of accommodation on offer but also its interesting and deceptive plot, located on the perimeter of the village with open views to the front, large gravel driveway and integral single garage.
Due to the different elevations and the way the garden has been established this has created varying atmospheres within this wonderful outdoor space and as with much of this property it is difficult to appreciate the delightful plot without personal inspection.
East Bridgford is a much sought after village with facilities including a well-regarded primary school, local shops, public house and village hall with further amenities available in the nearby market town of Bingham. The village is ideally placed for commuting via the A52 and A46.
