A unique opportunity to purchase a superb family orientated detached home understood to date back to the 1930s and occupying a wonderful established and generous plot that extends to approximately one acre, located on the edge of this highly regarded and much sought after edge of Vale village.
The property has been in the ownership of the same family since the 1970s so this is the first time it has come to market for around 50 years and during that time has seen a significant programme of alteration with the original home extended to create an additional level of accommodation with triple garage and annexe suite above, which combined with the main house provides approximately 3300 sq ft of living space.
The property retains much of its original character with high ceilings, picture rails, deep skirting and architrave, period doors and furniture as well as leaded light windows.
The main entrance hall is particularly attractive having an Arts & Crafts style dog leg spindle balustrade staircase rising to a galleried landing above, flooded with light from a beautiful leaded stained glass window creating an attractive feature.
This unique home offers up to five bedrooms and four reception areas, as well as a spacious dining kitchen overlooking the rear garden, main bathroom and two cloakrooms.
The accommodation includes a first floor annexe suite which is accessed from the main house and provides a well proportioned L shaped reception area leading out onto a balcony overlooking the rear garden and is also open plan to a fitted kitchen, double bedroom and further bathroom creating a versatile very usable space, perfect for families with dependent relatives, teenagers or even as an office suite.
The property has been well maintained over the years and benefits from upgraded gas central heating boilers, double glazing and modern kitchens. Although there are some elements of updating required this creates a blank canvas for those wishing to place their own mark on a home.
The property occupies a beautiful and lovingly established well proportioned plot lying in the region of 0.97 of an acre with gardens to three sides, well stocked with a range of mature trees and shrubs as well as a great deal of privacy with a south to westerly aspect.
There is a large sweeping block set driveway providing a considerable level of off road parking and leads to an attached triple garage and workshop, which again could offer scope to expand the accommodation further.
Overall the only way to truly appreciate this unique home is by internal inspection.
Whatton lies on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir and has its own village hall. Further amenities can be found in the adjacent village of Aslockton including outstanding primary school, public house and railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham. Additional amenities can be found in the nearby market town of Bingham and the village is bypassed by the A52 which provides good road access to the A46, A1 and M1.
