A VERY ATTRACTIVE BRICK AND PANTILED DETACHED COUNTRY COTTAGE SET ON A PRETTY LANE IN THE OLD PART OF WHATTON IN THE VALE OVERLOOKING A GRASS PADDOCK. THE GAS FIRED CENTRALLY HEATED ACCOMMODATION FEATURES CHARACTER BEAMED ROOMS WITH STRIPPED PINE DOORS AND OTHER PERIOD FEATURES. DECEPTIVE GARDENS AND DOUBLE GARAGE.

A very attractive brick and pantiled detached country cottage set on a pretty lane in the old part of Whatton in the Vale overlooking a grass paddock. The gas fired centrally heated accommodation features character beamed rooms with stripped pine doors and other period features. Former outbuildings at the rear have been converted to create a large living breakfast kitchen over 20ft in length, incorporating hand made pine units, island and range oven. Welsh slate flooring features in the breakfast kitchen and entrance hall and this blends well with some original stripped pine flooring elsewhere.

The versatile layout will no doubt appeal to a wide cross section of buyers with the property featuring a large garden at the rear divided into two distinctive areas, one designed with gravel and ornamental grasses and mature herbaceous borders and the other a large lawned area with mature trees. The property has off street car parking, gravel drive and detached double garage. The property has a security system installed and all carpets and floor coverings are included in the sale.

The old village of Whatton is unspoilt featuring a mixture of interesting period property and more modern homes and lies just off the A52 providing good road access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester, the A1 and M1. Whatton has its own village hall and other amenities are available in the adjacent village of Aslockton including public house, local shop and post office, primary school and railway station with links to Grantham and Nottingham. The Vale of Belvoir is particularly picturesque with country walks and undulating countryside.
