We have pleasure in offering to the market this elegant double fronted mid Victorian home, built in 1870 and having been sympathetically renovated and maintained over the years retaining much of its inherent character and features with high corniced ceilings, period fireplaces, sash windows, deep skirting and stripped pine internal doors.
The main accommodation extends to just in excess of 1700 sq ft and was increased by the addition of a versatile single storey annexe to the rear providing an additional 600 sq ft of floor space, purposefully converted from the original coach house/stables for use as a home office with its own heating and cloakroom facilities as well as small courtyard garden at the rear. This area, subject to necessary planning consents, would make a perfect annexe ideal for extended families with dependent relative, or continued use as a home office, workshop or studio space.
The accommodation to the main house extends to three main reception rooms with the sitting room having a beautiful slate fireplace with open grate. The kitchen has a generous range of hand painted units and links through into a utility area/garden room at the rear.
To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master benefitting from ensuite facilities with a sauna and shower area, there is a separate main bathroom.
The property occupies a deceptive plot close to the heart of this highly regarded and much sought after Conservation village, having gated driveway providing ample off road parking for at least three vehicles and gardens which run to the side and rear, lovingly established over the years with mature Bramley apple and established hedging and many varieties of English roses.
Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
The Conservation village of Orston has a highly regarded primary school and public house and there is high speed Broadband to the village. It is located just off the A52 between the market town of Bingham and the village of Bottesford where there are further amenities including secondary schooling, shops and restaurants, doctors and dentists. The village is convenient for the A52 and A46 providing good access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester. There is a railway station just outside the village linking to Grantham and Nottingham and from Grantham there is a high speed train to King's Cross in just over an hour.
