We have pleasure in offering to the market this fascinating individual detached family home which offers a deceptive level of versatile accommodation extending to in excess of 3000 sq ft and occupying a stunning established plot which lies in the region of half an acre,. Situated in one of the village's most highly regarded areas with pretty views from the lane across to the village church and river Devon, positioned within walking distance of the heart of this highly regarded and well served village.

The accommodation would be perfect for growing and extended families offering potential annexe areas ideal for teenagers or elderly relatives, is particularly versatile in its layout with the majority of the accommodation lying to the ground floor but in the eaves is a substantial master suite comprising large double bedroom with a range of bespoke fitted furniture and beautifully appointed contemporary ensuite bathroom. In addition the fourth bedroom is also located in the eaves and makes an ideal child's bedroom, alternatively additional dressing room to the master suite.

The village of Bottesford is well equipped with local amenities including primary and secondary schools, a range of local shops, doctors and dentists, several public houses and restaurants, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham which gives a fast rail link to London's Kings Cross in just over an hour. The A52 and A1 are also close by providing excellent road access.

The sprawling accommodation to the ground floor comprises initial entrance hall, cloakroom, four main receptions including a fantastic games room with access out into the garden and linking back into the family room, overall creating a wonderful living/entertaining space. In addition is a useful study which again could be additional bedroom space, adjacent to which are two further double bedrooms which benefit from ensuite cloakrooms and Jack & Jill bathroom. The kitchen is of an excellent proportion having an open plan living/dining area with aspect out into the rear garden and appointed with a generous range of hand painted units and there is a useful adjacent utility.

As well as the considerable level of accommodation on offer there is no doubt that one of the main selling features is its delightful plot, set back from the lane behind a gated established frontage with large lawn and more than ample off road parking, additional driveway to the side and attractive well stocked garden at the rear with landscaped terrace, which creates almost a Mediterranean atmosphere, leading on to a large lawned area with established trees.
