Full description


A rare opportunity to acquire an individual detached single storey home located within this highly regarded and much sought after village. The property provides an ideal downsize opportunity, requiring general upgrading but a fantastic blank canvas for somebody to place their own mark on a home. However subject to any necessary consents, the property may offer considerable scope for the creation of an individual home which may open its market up to families and professional couples looking for an interesting project to create the home of their dreams.

Although the property is likely to require a certain level of cosmetic upgrading including kitchen and bathroom as well as general decoration and floor coverings throughout, it has benefitted from double glazing as well as UPVC soffits, fascias and downpipes and upgraded central heating with replacement radiators and Worcester Bosch boiler.

The plot has been landscaped for low maintenance but again offers a considerable level of potential for the keen gardener and occupies a delightful position looking down Launder Street to the front, set back behind wall and wrought iron railing frontage with considerable off road parking and scope, subject to consent, for a garage should this be required. The rear garden offers a good degree of privacy, is enclosed to all sides and benefits from a westerly aspect.

Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and potential on offer.

The village of Orston has a highly regarded primary school and pub and is located just off the A52 between the market town of Bingham and the village of Bottesford where there are further amenities including secondary schooling, shops and restaurants, doctors and dentists. The village is convenient for the A52 and A46 providing good access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester. There is a railway station just outside the village linking to Grantham and Nottingham and from Grantham there is a high speed train to King's Cross in just over an hour.
