The Chestnuts is a fascinating individual detached period home which offers a generous and versatile level of internal accommodation, significantly extended and reconfigured over the years to create a well proportioned home in the region of 2300 sq ft.All of which lies within a superb established plot lying just in excess of 0.8 of an acre, including 0.55 of an acre level grass paddock and quarter of an acre formal gardens and including a considerable sweeping driveway and large double garage with stable block to the rear,affording wonderful panoramic views to the front across the River Trent.
At the heart of the property is the original Victorian dwelling which has more recently been extended to enlarge the accommodation which now provides three main reception areas, large farmhouse style kitchen with generous utility off and the addition of a conservatory to the rear which adds a further reception space.There is also a ground floor cloakroom and to the first floor five bedrooms, with ensuite and dressing area to the master and separate family bathroom.
The property has been well maintained over the years and has UPVC woodgrain effect double glazing, in the main there is electric heating and the property has retained a lot of its original character with high ceilings and deep skirting, stripped pine reclaimed internal doors and attractive fireplaces to both the sitting and dining rooms.
Offering a homely atmosphere the property would be perfect for growing or extended families particularly making use of the excellent local school.
One of the main features of the property is its idyllic location tucked away on a no through lane with superb panoramic aspect to the front across the River Trent, with views across the property's own paddock at the rear.
The property is set back from Trentside on a slightly elevated plot with gated access onto a substantial driveway which leads to generous double garage with brick stabling at the rear.
There are formal gardens to the front and rear of the property providing excellent outdoor entertaining areas, plus at the rear a level well maintained grass paddock.
The Chestnuts is a fascinating individual home which could be moved straight into but still offers a considerable level of potential, particularly for those with a slightly higher budget who may look to refurbish and reconfigure the property to their own taste.
Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
