Full description

A Particularly Fine, Deceptively Large Detached Cottage. Comprehensively Extended & Improved, but Retaining Period Charm & Character. Truly delightful setting on a quiet "no through road" Beautiful "feature" rear garden approx 110ft in length. Four Bedrooms, Det. Garage. Viewing Essential.

This enviable detached cottage is an absolute delight. Viewed from the front the property exudes all the charm and character one might hope for from a period cottage. The lovely village, the setting and particular street scene of Keepers Cottage enhance this to make it a most desirable property. The front elevation does not however give any hint to the true extent of the accommodation and size of plot on offer and therefore viewing is a must in order to appreciate exactly what is available.

The property provides very attractively presented four bedroom accommodation. The property also has the benefits of both double glazing and central heating. Externally there is a driveway with generous off street parking along with a larger than average, detached single garage. The rear garden is wonderful with sheltered patio, expansive lawn and well stocked borders.

Caunton has always been much sought after due in no small part to being surrounded by gently rolling farmland and yet at the same time its proximity to the towns of Newark and Southwell. Newark offers a rail service running to London Kings Cross in under an hour and twenty minutes.
