THE STORY

It has been just over 10 years now since the owners of Cherry Tree Cottage first stepped inside their beautiful barn-style home and fell in love with its unique charm and calm ambience. "We wanted something with character but which also offered a modern standard of living," one of them recalls. "As soon as we walked in through the door we felt this place was right for us. It was made from reclaimed bricks and tiles, which is why the walls are Grade II Listed, and has some exposed beams and brickwork inside and yet it is also extremely comfortable. It is also in such a quiet setting and has open views."

CHARACTER AND CONTEMPORARY

Dating back to the late 1990s, Cherry Tree Cottage is one of 21 exclusive properties at Stragglethorpe Manor, mid-way between Cotgrave and Radcliffe-on-Trent. Once part of a country estate, it is today nestled in the grounds of the Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club, where some of the buildings are conversions while others, like Cherry Tree Cottage, were built very carefully to blend in. "It was in good condition when we bought it but we have made a few changes to suit our own lifestyle," he explains. "We converted the garage into an office and laundry room, and updated the upstairs too." Solid oak floors were laid in some rooms, oak doors were hung and the hall, stairs and landing were decorated with a marble effect. He adds: "Most of the house has been kept quite neutral in colour - the main drawing room has white walls, for example, while the kitchen is pale yellow."

A RELAXING HOME

The property is entered via a hall, which gives on to the kitchen breakfast room to the right. This room, which was refitted in a shaker style about 10 years ago, is dual aspect, with French windows on to the garden. It includes a Rangemaster double oven and is designed around a US-style fridge-freezer. To the left is the capacious drawing room, which is also extremely light and has French windows on two sides. From here there is access to the study and utility room. "I love the drawing room, which has a television area and a little nook where we keep our wine." Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a family shower room. Two of the bedrooms enjoy en suite bathrooms. "These are mirror images of each other, with vaulted ceilings and beams, and views straight out over the golf course," he says.

WALLED GARDEN

Communal gardens surround the gated, courtyard development. This ensures the setting is tranquil and creates the air of living in a hamlet. "We also have our own private garden, which my wife just loves - it is a walled, English country garden, which is mature and offers wonderful places for sitting out in the sunshine and enjoying the tranquillity and the wonderful views of the sunset of an evening." he says. "In fine weather she likes to spend as much time as possible outside."

OUT AND ABOUT

With such superb proximity to the 36-hole golf course, the location is ideal for golf enthusiasts but also could suit those with other outdoor interests, he suggests. "There are lots of walks around here: you can stroll down to the Grantham Canal, which is very nice, and there are lots of country footpaths." The property is within easy reach of the Peak District for those who enjoy hiking, climbing and horse-riding, and there are country pubs and charming villages within the surrounding countryside.

AN EXCELLENT LOCATION

Cotgrave is just five minutes' drive from West Bridgford and five miles from the centre of Nottingham, with its high street shops and leisure amenities. Nearby West Bridgford is also a vibrant hub, with a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars. "I am a great football fan and love being able to get to the Nottingham Forest home games very easily," the owner observes. "It is also well located for Trent Bridge cricket ground." Cotgrave is within easy reach of Newark, Leicester, Loughborough, Derby and Lincoln, as well as the A46, M1 and A1 for those who need to travel further afield. "We love this peaceful yet convenient area and do not want to move too far away," he admits. "I do think we will miss this house, however, and its very peaceful setting, not to mention the wonderful neighbours we have within the courtyard."

SETTING THE SCENE

Cherrytree Cottage enjoys good outside space, with off-street parking for several cars and views over the golf course. To the rear there are private landscaped gardens, with a south-westerly aspect. The gardens are enclosed, and include a sitting area and water feature. French windows from the back of the house open on to garden, providing easy access.

WITHIN EASY REACH

There are a variety of schools including Nottingham High Schools for Boys and Girls, West Bridgford Secondary, Trent College and The Elms Preparatory and Hollygirt, to name but a few. Nottingham City is only a short drive and offers a comprehensive range of school, shopping and recreational facilities along with a main line station to London King Cross and St Pancras. The A46, A52 and M1 are all major link roads nearby and East Midlands Airport is some 25 minutes drive away.

DIRECTIONS:

Leaving West Bridgford proceed in an easterly direction along the A52 towards Bingham. Take the first exit on the roundabout onto thedual carriageway and at the first set of traffic lights turn right and then take the first right, towards Cotgrave, after approximately 300metres turn right into Nottinghamshire Golf Course and take the right fork where the property can be found.
