This Grade II listed building dates to the 17th Century and yet having been adapted over the years, it is equally relevant to todays home buyer.
Built around 1660, the building actually began life as a row of brick and stone built cottages. They were later joined and converted into what is now named The Old Manor House.
Todays historic period residence retains gabled dormers and gothic windows, heavily beamed ceilings, latch interior doors and quarry tiled flooring among its features, all of which combine to create an instant feeling of style and character in the house.
Family house buyers will love the space that this house provides with two sitting rooms, a dining room, snug and office as well as a large breakfast kitchen, utility, boiler room, and a useful barn.
Of course, there is more to a house than an accommodation list, its individual features and layout are key and as you entering The Old Manor House through a vestibule, boot and cloakroom you will discover the heart of the house a large kitchen/breakfast area with slate tiled flooring and beamed ceiling as well as an array of units and space for a table and chairs.
The utility room joins a large barn with exposed trusses and an oak sprung floor a lovely space in which to entertain especially as it leads out the front and rear gardens.
A secondary utility room stands off the kitchen and this has access to a sitting room and a wash room with WC.
The flexibility of the houses interior continues in the first of the two sitting rooms, which is split-level and has French doors leading to the rear patio and garden. The room also has a decorative fireplace with wood burner, tiled flooring and beamed ceiling.
Another fireplace of note is in the dining room where a lovely Inglenook creates a focal point.
Upstairs, you will find six bedrooms on the first floor and an office, two storage rooms and a sauna on the second floor (these three rooms have period designed gothic windows and could be used as a self-contained flat).
The master bedroom has a balcony overlooking the manicured garden and inner courtyard, plus there is a family bathroom with bath and shower, and an additional separate shower room.
Pretty gardens add to the houses character a formal walled garden with yew and box hedges, lawns and a fountain stand at the front of the house, while the rear walled garden is mainly lawn but also has several fruit trees and a vegetable garden.
Approaching through a private gated entrance into a gravelled courtyard, the half-acre upon which the house stands creates a lovely setting and all so close to the city.
Head out of Nottingham on Derby Road until you reach the traffic light junction with Gregory Street, turn left and at this point you will find yourself in Old Lenton.
The Old Manor House is located within the Old Lenton conservation area with the River Leen running through the area and on the edge of the Queens Medical Centre campus.
Its a location which therefore appeals to medics and hospital workers, as well as University students the University of Nottingham is also less than a mile away.
Another benefit of the location is it proximity to Nottingham city centre. Just a mile and half away it is walkable if you are feeling energetic but there are also regular buses running along Derby Road while the new tram route will eventually run from Beeston, through to the University and QMC to a tram stop on Gregory Street.
