Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Perfect for stargazing, this pretty, period, 2 bed terrace makes an ideal starter home in this fabulously popular Grantham village. With its aspect over gardens, this house enjoys black night skies that glitter with stars and it seems the International Space Station puts in a regular appearance.

Hugged between similar style period properties, this extended cosy cottage offers a wealth of comforts. The downstairs is floored entirely in "Moduleo" luxury oak effect vinyl and insulated beneath making it a rich, warm surface upon which to walk. There are two good sized reception rooms, the living room benefiting from a modern gas fire, and the kitchen/diner enjoying the belting heat from a multi-fuel stove. Stairs lead off to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, a double with exposed original floorboards and a single, warmly carpeted for the little ones. A family bathroom with white suite and overhead shower completes the internal space. A loft hatch in the landing ceiling beckons the builder's skills, there being a huge space above, which could easily be converted into a sizeable third bedroom accessed via a proper staircase.

To the rear of this deceptively spacious home there are hidden surprises. Entwined with access paths to neighbouring gardens there are three outbuildings, one of which has light and power and is ripe for conversion into an office. There are two separate garden spaces, one an enclosed patio by the back door and the other a lawned area in the rear corner. There is ample space to park vehicles immediately to the front of the house. This much loved home has been very well maintained, has gas central heating and is fully upvc double glazed.

Long Street is close to the centre of the village of Great Gonerby, THE location of choice. Minutes from Grantham, with its main line links to King's Cross and Grammar schools and with easy access to the A1 trunk road, this village offers everything you need. Shops, Pub, Post office, Primary School, Church, Village Hall are all within easy walking distance and it's only minutes by car to the popular Boundary Mills/Downtown Superstore and nearby Petrol Station. Why live anywhere else?

  • Landing

    At the top of the stairs is a landing space with a loft hatch above. The loft space is vast and offers real potential for conversion into a third bedroom accessed via a proper staircase. For those who just want to bung their cases up there, it's insulated and fully boarded. A smoke alarm is also fitted to the ceiling.

  • Bedroom (Double)

    3.51m x 3.43m (12 sqm) - 11' 6" x 11' 3" (129 sqft)

    With a solid pine door this room has exposed floorboards and a window to the front elevation. There is a feature wall behind the bed, ample room for wardrobes and dressing table plus a handy cupboard space which houses the hot water cylinder and has shelving for the linens.

    5.11m x 1.9m (9.7 sqm) - 16' 9" x 6' 2" (104 sqft)

    Accessed via a further solid pine door, this room forms part of the extension and makes a super bedroom for a single or bunk beds. The flue for the woodburner runs up the wall keeping it super cosy in winter and there is ample room for wardrobes, desking and the like. A secret space houses the pump for the boiler.

  • Family Bathroom

    2.45m x 1.42m (3.4 sqm) - 8' x 4' 7" (37 sqft)

    A white suite and exposed original floor boards enhance the character of this lovely home. The full sized bath has an electric Triton shower over and there is a low level wc and wash hand basin. An exceptionally deep window sill is tiled in expensive glass and stone and the pine door is half glazed with feature etching on the panes. Wooden venetians at the window are also included.

  • Rear Garden

    Immediately outside the back door is a paved patio area lined with pots and climbing plants and a picket fence. This is a perfect sun trap in Summer. Step down then onto shared access paths to reach the three outbuildings, firstly a storeroom (perfect for fuel for the multifuel burner), then a sizeable workshop with light and power that currently acts as a utility room but could very easily become a garden office, then down to the lawned area in the corner with a further storeroom that makes a perfect Wendy House for children or can store the garden furniture.
