The Story

MAGIC MOMENTS
The old buildings had been carefully converted to present high vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Everywhere was very neutral in décor, making the most of the sense of space and height, and the natural light that came streaming through the windows.
“We liked the way it had been decorated and so we have maintained that style,” she says.
The ground floor of the house features rooms such as the breath-taking, three-storey high drawing room, with its high vaulted ceiling and beautiful galleried landing above.
“This room really comes into its own at Christmas, when we have a twelve-foot high tree and put lights all around the balustrades above. It is just magical.”

SUMPTUOUS BEDROOMS
The ground floor of the house also features the stylish kitchen breakfast room, utility room and the leisure area.
“The swimming pool is on the ground floor and has its own fabulous seating area, where we like to sit,” she says. “We call it the conservatory because there is so much glass. It is a brilliant place to relax and look out into the garden or to read.”
The two upper areas at Cauldwell House are home to the sumptuous bedrooms and bathrooms. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom also has a dressing room and access to a family room, which overlooks the swimming pool. Two more bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the floor above.

SEPARATE LIVING SPACE
Incorporated into Cauldwell House is the self-contained annexe: this comprises a kitchen breakfast room and cloakroom, together with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a sitting room.
“Our son and his wife lived in the annexe for a while and it was ideal for them,” Carol says. “The reason we are moving on now is that there are only two of us living here. It has been useful having the annexe as extra space, however. I have enjoyed the luxury of having a sewing and craft room and we use the kitchen when we are entertaining as it keeps the mess away from the main house!”

PLACE FOR PARTIES
There have been so many great celebrations at Cauldwell House, with family members, friends and neighbours.
“We had a Queen’s Golden Jubilee party out on the front lawn – the marquee went up on our side and people parked at our neighbour’s house. We also had a ‘party in the paddock’ for my daughter-in-law’s 30th birthday. All her friends and family camped and they had a mini marquee and disco,” she recalls.
“We have had a number of murder mystery evenings here and tea parties, with vintage china. We have recently had a James Bond party for my husbands 60th, where everyone had to come ‘dressed to kill’ and the pool area was all lit up and looked incredible.”

OUT AND ABOUT
It has been such a fun place to live – and it has also been a convenient place to live. It only takes 10 minutes to reach the M1 and it is easy to travel into Nottingham from the local station, and then to go on to London.
“We are hikers and we are about half an hour from the Peak District, where we go walking most weekends,” she explains. “There are closer places to walk too: Clumber Park is really good for families and my husband likes to cycle in Clumber Park. Sherwood Pine where there is Go Ape, which our grandchildren love. Hardwick Hall is just five miles away – we like to walk there and enjoy the beautiful views.”
Carol adds: “We have enjoyed being here greatly but what we will miss when we leave is the spectacular house – it has been an amazing experience, the likes of which we will never have again.”

Setting The Scene

The grounds at Cauldwell House are beautifully maintained and have a parkland style. They have given the owners wonderful outside space to enjoy on a daily basis and for entertaining.
The garden is secluded, with lawns and a variety of trees. There is a generous terrace for outside dining, entertaining and taking in the glorious views.
The grounds also include an area, where a marquee has been erected in the past and friends and family have camped. Outbuildings include a double garage, with loft storage space, a garden shed and an outdoor heated kennel.
