Full description

Punch Bowl Cottage is locally listed in a conservation area and is a four double bedroomed detached property formerly a pub called the Punch Bowl Inn. It was originally built in 1756 on the site of the Framework Knitters' Cottage and situated within a short walking distance of the city centre. This delightful brick-built vernacular cottage boasts a wealth of character and charm throughout, arranged over three floors and is offered for sale with immediate vacant possession. The generous size living accommodation has the benefit of double glazing, gas central heating and consists of side entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, handmade fitted kitchen with a curved wall and with a Range style cooker included within the sale.

There is a full width front sitting room with a cast iron multi-burner, inner lobby off from the main entrance hall with a latch door and steps leading down to the cellar and a delightful garden room located to the rear of the property which enjoys a high degree of privacy and views of the extremely well established and private garden.

To the first floor split level landing leads to the generous size master bedroom measuring 18'9" in length which we feel could be split into two bedrooms subject to building regulations. There is a further double size bedroom, a spacious family period style four piece bathroom suite and to the second floor landing there are two further double bedrooms.

The property is tucked away within this secluded location yet being conveniently positioned for the city centre and the A52, which provides swift access onto the M1 motorway and the city of Nottingham.
