Full description


Steeple View is a fascinating individual and deceptive detached home occupying an attractive established plot within walking distance of the heart of this highly regarded and well served Vale of Belvoir village.

The property was commissioned in 1998 by the current vendors to create a spacious bespoke home extending to approximately 2200 sq ft excluding the large attached double garage. In the main the accommodation lies to the ground floor but there is a further bedroom situated in the eaves to the rear benefitting from ensuite facilities. This would be perfect either as a master suite or alternatively would make an excellent guest or teenage bedroom.

The property was originally designed with a great deal of thought and attention to detail, constructed of brick elevations beneath a pantiled roof , with a generous ceiling height to accommodate Long Case Clocks. The architect, Julien Owen Associates Nottingham, supervised the project throughout the build ensuring a high standard at the time with maximum insulation to the property. A further feature is the attractive handmade Pope & Parr double glazed hardwood timber casement windows, many of which have individually designed leaded and stained glass features. All internal doors are by Vicaima, 3 fully glazed with bevelled glass panels by Pope & Parr, 4 half glazed, one fire door leading to the garage and the remainder are full doors for privacy.

Internally there is a co-ordinated level of accommodation which is likely to appeal to a wide audience, large enough to accommodate families but alternatively, particularly because of its mainly single storey layout, could well appeal to those downsizing from considerably larger dwellings still looking for a generous level of space but located on a more manageable plot within a delightful village setting.

The accommodation comprises two main receptions with additional conservatory, four bedrooms, Jack & Jill ensuite shower room, separate family bathroom and separate wc, with additional ensuite to the first floor. As well as this, leading off a spacious entrance vestibule there is a useful study, and a well proportioned dining kitchen and utility room.

The property is set back from High Street behind an established frontage with large open gateway leading onto a substantial driveway and attached double garage. Cleverly designed round the centre of the home is an open roofed courtyard with two outside power points, which links back into the main dining room and inner hallway creating an interesting feature of the property. The main garden lies to the rear and has been lovingly established over the years, enclosed to all sides and containing two established yew trees, lawn and well stocked perimeter borders.

The property has neutral decoration throughout, benefits from a fitted alarm system as well as electric heating throughout and modern pressurised hot water system, and an ample supply of raised height double points strategically placed for flexible room usage.

Overall the only way to truly appreciate this fascinating and deceptive home is by internal inspection.

The village of Bottesford is well equipped with local amenities including primary and secondary schools, a range of local shops, doctors and dentist, 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.
