Set within grounds extending to approximately 1.85 acres and commanding panoramic views towards three counties, Millfield Cottage is a simply stunning detached family residence.

Architect owned and remodelled, the accommodation flows particularly well, the living space is capable of occupancy in a number of different ways and original cottage attributes have been successfully combined with contemporary accents and a quality specification.

With a hill top location and principal garden lying to the south, the orientation captures fine views over immediately surrounding and undulating countryside.

In our opinion the property will appeal to a variety of purchasers, particularly family buyers and professional couples, allowing space for formal entertaining and alfresco enjoyment; natural light is captured beautifully.

The accommodation commences with an atmospheric reception hall open to two storey height with vaulted ceiling and galleried landing over, accessed via a dividing elegant staircase. The principal reception rooms of drawing room and dining room have been created in more recent times, are inter-linked to create great living space and capture the panoramic views with immediate access to the domestic gardens. The third reception room of parlour is of cottage character. The triple aspect kitchen is luxuriously appointed with a comprehensive range of bespoke cupboards, including a peninsula divide and hand crafted breakfast seating area. Here double doors open directly onto the rear grounds. Ancillary accommodation of shower room and utility room complete the ground floor. At first floor level the bedroom accommodation leads off the central hub of the galleried landing. The master bedroom suite is on the south side with fine dressing hallway, generous bedroom and stunning en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is ideally suited for guests, having an immediately adjacent bathroom and second staircase returning to the ground floor. Two further good bedrooms are provided, together with the third and luxuriously appointed house bathroom.

Without doubt particular features of this property include its outside grounds, circulation space and location. There are driveway accesses to either side, one leading to the comprehensive garage block with double garage and workshop area. The other features gravelled off road parking adjacent to a rustic well. The domestic gardens sweep to the south, being laid to lawn. On the western side is an excellent paddock, being enclosed with natural pond in one corner and separate gateway onto Old Gainsborough Road.

Viewing is encouraged to appreciate the layout, specification and location of this property. Oil fired central heating, comprehensive intruder alarm system are installed and extensive external lighting.

The property enjoys the aforementioned hill top location, with panoramic views towards three counties and enjoying frontage to Old Gainsborough Road which lies on the south side of the main A631. It is close to the Chesterfield canal basin at Drakeholes.

Millfield Cottage is situated beyond the principal village of Everton which is a much desired village within this area, benefitting from a number of local amenities, including public houses and primary school. The fashionable town of Bawtry is a few minutes' car drive away. Retford is accessible to the south and commuting to Doncaster and the South Yorkshire area in general is feasible. With the A631 nearby the property is ideally located for accessing the areas' excellent communication links by road, rail and air. The A1M lies to the west and both Retford and Doncaster have main line railway stations upon the London to Edinburgh intercity link. Air travel is accessible via Doncaster, Sheffield and Nottingham East Midlands International Airports. Leisure amenities and educational facilities (both state and independent) are well catered for.
