We have pleasure in offering to the market this interesting detached character cottage which offers a versatile and deceptive level of accommodation, thoughtfully renovated over the years and sympathetically extended to create a fantastic well proportioned individual home.
The property offers a great deal of character and individuality, occupying a deceptive landscaped plot at the heart of this pretty Vale of Belvoir hamlet, overlooking the village green to the front and a beautifully maintained garden at the rear, as well as a considerable driveway and two double garages.
Internally the accommodation offers four bedrooms and four receptions, three bath/shower rooms, ground floor cloakroom and utility. The kitchen is appointed with a generous range of bespoke units and integrated appliances and the focal point of the house is a stunning single storey addition at the rear which has created a superb reception with high vaulted ceiling with skylights, windows to two elevations, bi-fold doors and air conditioning. This area leads out to a terrace at the side with oak framed open sided gazebo with heating and light providing a fantastic living/entertaining space.
The property occupies a delightful plot offering a high degree of privacy with enclosed mainly lawned garden at the front with well stocked perimeter borders and to the rear a generous lawned garden tucked away behind two substantial double garages.
Overall the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer is by internal inspection.
There is a public house/restaurant in Muston and further facilities are available in the adjacent village of Bottesford including primary and secondary schools, several public houses and restaurants, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham from where there is a fast rail link to London's Kings Cross in just over an hour.

The village is a stone's throw away from Belvoir Castle which holds events and shows throughout the year.
