Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Built circa 1862 by the Squire Charlton probably as a worker's cottage. Since this time the property has been used in the 1920s up until the 1960s as the local police house. In the 1970s the property was sympathetically extended. The current owner has resided at the property since the early 1990s and has paid particular attention to retaining as much character as possible by re-instating traditional joinery to the front elevation with sealed unit double glazed windows from Patchett Joinery, other features include many original beamed ceilings and internal wooden doors with latches and traditional ironmongery. The rear elevation windows are of UPVC construction and the property is centrally heated throughout. The current owner has also introduced an attractive side porch/garden room which links the kitchen to the garage.

Located in the centre of Chilwell village and within a Conservation area, the property stands proud on its plot on a slightly elevated position with double-width driveway leading to Detached Brick Built Double Garage with electric up and over door and pitched tiled roof, picket fence and gate leading to front door with pathway running along the side of the property with further gate to gardens. The front garden has a well tended hedgerow, retaining wall and pathway leading to a gate beyond which can be found is the main garden which is particularly private, laid to lawn with patio area and flanked by mature trees and shrubs. The rear garden has raised pathway and raised bedding. The property is conveniently situated on a bus route with a regular service to the west to Long Eaton and Derby and to the east to Beeston, Queens Medical Centre and Nottingham City Centre.

The property has THREE Reception Rooms which can be used in a variety of ways, the larger currently used as the Lounge with partial vaulted ceiling and french doors enjoying an aspect over the gardens. To the ground floor also is a useful Wet Room/WC and the Breakfast Kitchen can be found to the rear. To the first floor the landing provides access to TWO Double Bedrooms, one with En Suite Bathroom.

A great opportunity to purchase a piece of local history as indeed the property appears in publications relating to the history of the area.
