About this property

  • This is an incredibly deceptive home having started life as a single story 1960s property, it has been extended and upgraded over the years culminating in the most recent restoration project undertaken by the vendors in 2018. At this point, the property was modernized with structural improvements made to the front patio, front entrance, kitchen, the master bathroom and sitting room. Cosmetic improvements including plastering, skirting boards and wood floor restoration was also done.

    Most of the accommodation is on a single storey but a previous rear extension resulted in a spacious lower ground floor drawing room with the principal bedroom suite above.

    Approached from the edge of Ashwell via a private road, the property is set back behind mature hedging with an in and out shingle drive, single garage and grassed area. Immediately to the front of the house is a sun terrace and from here the front porch leads into the spacious reception hall with herringbone parquet flooring, glazed doors to the kitchen and dining room, and stairs to the lower ground and upper floors.

    To the left is the kitchen with wide floor tiles, a range of floor and wall cabinets, integrated ovens, fitted dishwasher, electric hob and space for a large freezer fridge freezer. This leads via double doors directly into the dining room creating a wonderfully sociable space with parquet flooring, double doors back to the hall and it overlooks the garden with sliding doors to the decked area.

    Beyond the kitchen are two rooms which have been used as a study, playroom or bedrooms, the first at the front and the second with sliding doors again to the decked area. Between these is the utility room fitted with further units and having space for washing machine and an external side door.

    Returning to the hall there are two double bedrooms to the right each with fitted wardrobes and a further room between them could be used as a playroom, study or indeed a small bedroom.

    To the rear of the hall steps lead down to the spacious triple aspect drawing room with sliding doors to the garden and a fireplace and above is the principal bedroom suite of vaulted bedroom enjoying distant views, a dressing area and bathroom with separate shower.

    The rear gardens have a raised decked area, paved lower terrace and lawns with a variety of mature trees and shrubs.
