A substantial double fronted period detached home boasting a wealth of character and features, situated in a prominent position within walking distance of the wealth of local amenities.
The property is understood to date back to the 17th Century and is recorded on the Bingham Heritage Website as being in existence in 1663. It is understood that in the 1800s the dwelling used to house knitting machines and hence the more robust beams in one quarter of the property. It is likely that the double fronted facade was added to create a more grand aesthetic appearance, altering what was more likely to be a more typical cottage on the site.
The current vendors have lived in the property for over 40 years and have painstakingly renovated and extended it, retaining and reinstating much of the original character. The property now boasts beamed ceilings to many rooms, live fireplaces to four rooms with the study having a particularly attractive fossilised stone period fire surround, with a wood burning stove to the family room and to the kitchen a beautiful gas fired Aga which provides both cooking and hot water facilities. In addition there is also a modern gas central heating system.
The property now boasts five bedrooms and main family bathroom to the first floor whilst to the ground floor there are four receptions and kitchen. The family room is a particularly attractive part of the house having windows to two elevations overlooking the garden.
Beneath the property lies additional space by way of three barrel vaulted cellars which provide further flexible space and excellent storage, they could even be converted into additional accommodation subject to any necessary consents.
The property fronts Long Acre and has double timber gates providing both security and privacy leading onto a walled private rear garden with large sweeping gravel driveway providing turning facility and leading to an open fronted garage/workshop to the foot. The gardens have been lovingly established over the years with central lawn area and well stocked borders.
