The words are often written but not always as worthy, but in this case this truly is an unbelievable and rare opportunity to acquire this utterly fantastic four/five bedroom large semi detached property located in the heart of Newstead Abbey's grounds which is one of the most exclusive places to live within the whole of Nottinghamshire with a real countryside and rural feel. The house itself was built in approx 1905 as an estate workers' house on an area bounded by dry stone walls and marked on old maps as a plant nursery. With the original abbey boundary wall forming the rear wall of the garden. The previous owners bought the house in 1956 and stayed for 25 years and the current vendors have then gone on to love and enjoy this charming property for over forty years and the time has now come to offer this extremely impressive home with the plot to match to the open market.
As previously touched on above the property itself is located in the heart of Newstead Abbey in an ultra-private and charming location with surrounding woodland and sweeping country approach roads before eventually being greeted by this large family residence which stands proudly on its very own ultra private large plot of close to a quarter of an acre and truly is a perfect place you would be immensely proud to call your home, also benefiting from a private pathway opposite connecting with the Public Right of Way heading south to Papplewick through the Abbey Grounds and north to Thieves Wood. Easy access to National Cycle Network 6 heading north to Clumber and beyond and south to Nottingham and Derby.
The internal layout is already incredibly spacious but also offers unlimited scope and potential for extensions subject to relevant planning should it be required. The current accommodation spans two well balanced spacious floors and offers an excellent amount of living space just under 1,500 sqft consisting of an initial entrance hall with access into the two spacious reception rooms which are seamlessly adjoined, 14ft breakfast kitchen, utility/boot room, downstairs shower room, a further separate WC and a versatile room which could be either utilised as bedroom five or a well-placed home office. To the first floor landing there are a further four generous double bedrooms all with as you can imagine stunning garden or tree lined views.
Moving through the surrounding impressive Newstead Abbey grounds that are ever present on your approach to the wonderful Hagg Nook Cottages particularly mentioning as you pass the abbey itself and the lake view that just continues to set the tone for what you are about to see when you eventually arrive at the private and peaceful plot that the property sits on. As you approach the property you will initially enjoy a brick walled frontage with farm style wide opening gate onto a substantial frontage which is pleasantly split between a pebbled driveway providing off road parking for multiple cars, front lawned area and a spacious opening to the side which provides open access onto the magnificent stunning ultra private rear garden where there is just a beautiful outlook over open fields, tree lined forest views and the natural beauty of the established garden itself which is stocked full of mature planting, shrubs and trees around its large central lawn that runs the length of the whole garden. You will also find well placed patio sitting areas, log store and multiple garden stores/shed that will all be included within the sale. The current vendors will also be offering within the sale an additional 400 sq meters of land opposite from the property itself.
