Property Description

Full description

A Grade II listed Georgian cottage with five bedrooms and three reception rooms. Sympathetically modernised by the current owners, retaining charm and character, complemented by modern living, approximately 4.5 acres of land with views of Dale Abbey.


Originally constructed circa 1784 from brick and some stonework which we believe to originate from the ancient monument of Dale Abbey, a prominent view of which is enjoyed from the garden and some of the windows of the property.

Sympathetically modernised and improved by the current owners, the property comes to the market in ready to move into condition with many original features which are complemented by modern living which of course includes central heating, fully fitted impressive dining kitchen with an array of built-in appliances, contemporary four piece family bathroom and en suite to the master bedroom. The generous study has an up to the minute network and comms system in place.

This property sits on a generous plot which we understand extends to some 4.5 acres which comprises a gated courtyard providing parking for several vehicles, leading to triple garaging and formal attractively landscaped rear gardens, enjoying views over the surrounding area. There is an enclosed orchard and large field which is currently used for grazing.

Dale Abbey is an historical village with a highly regarded traditional public house, tea rooms and church and offers good commuter access to the surrounding towns and cities of Nottingham, Derby and Junction 25 of the M1 Motorway.

Offering versatile accommodation in ready to move into condition, this property will suit growing families and those looking for country living and only when viewing the property and its grounds can it be fully appreciated.
