We are delighted to present to the market this modern and substantial detached residence built in 1997, offering an impressive level of family accommodation extending to a gross internal floor area of 3,196 sq ft. The property stands in a delightful south facing position with self contained home office accommodation, a private lake, and grounds in all extending to circa 1.5 acres.

The house accommodation offers a well proportioned layout across two floors comprising on the ground floor: reception hall, cloakroom, utility room, office, open plan dining room and family room, and a substantial open plan living kitchen with large scale central island and two sets of French doors. The first floor galleried landing leads to a front balcony and four spacious double bedrooms all having a range of bespoke handmade fitted furniture. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and bedroom two has double doors through to a first floor sitting room which leads back downstairs to the family room. Completing the accommodation are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The house is beautifully presented and well maintained throughout and benefits from an alarm system, gas central heating and UPVC double glazing.

The property is approached off Mansfield Road down a long sweeping granite stone driveway which leads to remote controlled electric gates. There is a substantial driveway for multiple cars, turning circle and a double garage with an adjoining store. The self contained home office offers a good sized gross internal floor area of circa 740 sq ft. It is fully insulated, has electric heating, excellent LED lighting, and eight CCTV cameras covering grounds and driveway. On the ground floor there are three separate offices with quality fitted furniture, and stairs leading to a useful first floor area.

The grounds are a particular feature, beautifully maintained and benefiting from south facing aspects and a really lovely countryside style environment. There is a large lake, substantial lawn, a selection of mature trees, and a tree house with LED lighting and a decked balcony. In front of the property a large raised terrace provides ample seating space to enjoy the views across the lake and beyond. The landscaped rear garden features a paved patio, decked patio beneath a pergola, central lawn and further mature planting and trees.

It is not very often a property of this calibre comes to the open market, and is without question one of the finest properties we have offered for sale in recent times.

Skegby is a popular choice for homebuyers because of its thriving village community, modern amenities and excellent transport links. The village has a good selection of shops including a Co-op, a Post Office and a petrol station as well as pubs, cafes and takeaways. There is also a doctor's surgery, pharmacy and a library. In your leisure time, the nearby Lammas Leisure Centre provides excellent facilities for sports enthusiasts while golfers have the benefit of the nearby Coxmoor Golf Club and a local driving range.
