OLD FARM COTTAGE, 26 TOWN STREET, LOUND, RETFORD, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, DN22 8RJ

DESCRIPTION
Old Farm Cottage is a stunning combination of detached cottage of quality specification and character, generous mature family gardens and versatile outbuildings.

Lovingly refurbished by the present vendors the living space flows particularly well and is geared towards family occupation though it would equally suit professional couples and those wishing to enjoy the indoor / outdoor life.

The accommodation commences with an entrance porch to the side of which is a sizeable lounge, dual aspect having two chimney breasts, one hosting log burner. A versatile playroom lies to the side, this is equally suitable for a dining room, snug or study. Without doubt a particular feature of the property is its superb garden room of quality specification greatly enlarging the ground floor living space and directly linking to the garden. Adjacent is the kitchen which is of character having heritage style fitments, cooking range and pantry. A rear hall with utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

At first floor level the four bedrooms radiate around the central landing. The house bathroom is well appointed and of generous proportions, a further luxuriously appointed shower room is also provided.

Externally the gardens are fabulous, mature in nature with an expanse of lawn, mature shrubbery, vine clad arbour ideal for sitting out and veg plot. A summer house nestles within one corner.

There is a gated parking court, bordered on one side by the rear elevation of the property and on the other by the barn / outbuilding block which in our opinion is well worthy of further enhancement, perhaps suitable for workshop, studio, gym, home office, annexe etc (subject to all statutory approvals).
