Full description


A unique opportunity to acquire a fascinating individual detached character conversion which has undergone a significant programme of sympathetic restoration combining the initial aesthetics expected with a traditional home with high ceilings, exposed timbers and a range of natural materials, with the clever addition of a substantial contemporary extension which provides a superb light and airy open plan living/entertaining space with wonderful aspect out into the private rear garden and linking through into the original part of the house.

A great deal of thought and attention to detail has gone into this stunning home which has been tastefully fitted to a very high standard with contemporary fixtures and fittings sympathetic to the original build, with oak internal doors, stunning fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, superb bath and shower rooms and a combination of attractive flooring throughout. Viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the level and versatility of the accommodation.

The original part of the house, as the name suggests, was a former Victorian sawmill and much of its original character has been maintained with high ceilings and exposed beams, and spacious individual rooms which are likely to suit a wide variety of prospective purchasers but we suspect in the main growing or extended families.

The accommodation comprises an attractive entrance hall with contemporary oak and glass staircase rising to the first floor landing and also leading on to a stunning ground floor bedroom suite, which could be utilised as an annexe or alternatively an impressive master bedroom suite and comprising an initial walk-in dressing room, ensuite bathroom and beautiful well-proportioned double bedroom. In addition there is a spacious utility room and ground floor cloakroom. The hallway links into the new extension which is an impressive open plan L-shaped contemporary space with a beautifully appointed kitchen leading into both a main living room with contemporary fireplace and separate entertainment area with access out onto the rear garden.

To the first floor are three further double bedrooms each with their own individual character and one with ensuite facilities. The fourth bedroom offers an incredible feature of a hanging loft within which lives the resident barn owl and the developer has cleverly installed a live CCTV feed which broadcasts to the media area of the kitchen, perfect for the 'Harry Potter' fans. There is also a family bathroom.

The property occupies an attractive semi-rural position still within a short drive of a wealth of amenities in the local market town of Bingham, and is set back from the road behind gated access which leads onto a substantial sweeping driveway which in turn leads to a large double garage. The rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and is relatively generous by modern standards.

Hawksworth is an idyllic village located off the A52 in the triangle between the market towns of Bingham, Newark and Grantham accessible to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester, the A1 and M1. The village has its own church, part of which is used as the village hall and nearby primary schools are available in Aslockton and Orston which also have local public houses. Shopping facilities are located in nearby Bingham which also has a railway station with a Nottingham to Grantham link.

The market town of Bingham is well equipped with local amenities including both primary and secondary schools, leisure centre, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham, range of local shops, doctors and dentists, several pubs and restaurants. Bingham is also conveniently located close to the A46 and A52 with further links to the A1 and M1 providing good road links to Nottingham and Leicester.
