DESCRIPTION
The Lodge represents a rare opportunity to acquire a fine combination of modern family residence, extensive grounds and multi-functional outbuildings on the edge of this most desirable village.

The sellers commissioned the build of this property, utilising an appealing specification, energy efficient features and a well planned layout to deliver a stunning home. Set within generous grounds extending to approximately 2 acres (0.81 hectares) subject to site measurement.

The property will appeal to those with country based, livestock or equestrian interests. Family buyers will be attracted by the spacious grounds.

Flexibility is greatly enhanced by the modern outbuilding block presently arranged as double garage, pavilion and barn, but also now benefitting from planning permission for conversion to residential annexe. As such, the property would be suitable for those purchasers seeking multi-generational living arrangements. This outbuilding block has a gross internal area in the region of 1,057sqft/98m².

Clayworth and The Lodge itself benefit from the wireless superfast broadband system N3 established by the local authority. This, together with the multi-functional outbuildings make the property suitable for home working.

The living accommodation commences with a generous reception hall off which there is a cloakroom with wc. This opens to an inner hall having staircase to first floor. To one side is the principal reception room of lounge, the focal point of which is a contemporary Stovax multi fuel stove. To the other side of the hallway is a living dining kitchen with an attractive range of free standing units. This is a dual aspect room and is ideally suited for casual family dining and sitting. To the side is the dining room which permits formal entertaining. The utility room completes the ground floor.

At first floor level the accommodation radiates around the landing with four well proportioned bedrooms. The house bathroom features a contemporary suite including roll top bath and walk in showering area. A further separate house shower room is provided.

The specification of the property includes electric under floor heating and 'heat exchangers' to the bathrooms and kitchen.

LOCATION
Nestled upon the periphery of this much desired village the property occupies an enviable position, feeling part of the village yet also commanding fine views over immediately surrounding rolling countryside.

Clayworth is in our experience, a popular village lying between the centres of Retford, Bawtry and Gainsborough, just to the south of the A631. The village is within commuting distance of Doncaster, Lincoln and the South Yorkshire conurbation.

In our opinion this is a lovely village with local hostelries including the well known gastro pub of the Blacksmiths Clayworth. The village lies adjacent to the Chesterfield Canal and there are a number of excellent footpaths, lanes and countryside walks in the vicinity.

The village is ideally placed for accessing the area's excellent communication links, the A1M and M1 lie to the west, both Retford and Doncaster have mainline railway stations on the London to Edinburgh Intercity Iine and air travel is feasible via international airports of Doncaster Sheffield and Nottingham East Midlands.

Leisure amenities and educational facilities (both state and independent) are well catered for.

DIRECTIONS
Leaving Retford on the A620, pass through the village of Welham, into Clarborough and at the bottom of Clarborough Hill turn left proceeding straight on on the B1403 through Hayton. This leads to Clayworth and you will enter the village over the canal bridge, proceed into the village turning right sign posted Gringley on the Hill and The Lodge will be found on the right hand side on the edge of the village.

OUTSIDE
Without doubt particular features of this property are its position within the village and its outdoor space. The property is set within most generous grounds of approximately 2 acres (0.81 hectares) (subject to site survey). The immediate domestic grounds include lawned gardens and a fine walled courtyard directly accessible from the utility room. A block paved driveway leads off Gringley Road secured by sliding gateway and passing by the side of the property. This facilitates off road vehicle parking but also gives access to the semi-detached single garage 16'2" x 8'9" (4.92m x 2.67m), this has light, power and an up and over door.

The grounds extend to the northwest including an area suitable for the cultivation of vegetables, open grassland and the owners have planted a copse at one end.

The grounds host the purpose built modern outbuilding block which has an expansive gravelled driveway and turning area with double gated separate access off Gringley Road. The block presently comprises:-
DOUBLE GARAGE 20'8" x 17'0" (6.29m x 5.19m)
PAVILLION 20'4" x 12'2" (6.19m x 3.70m)
'BARN' 22'8" x 20'4" (6.89m x 6.19m) this building is multi-functional in our opinion, ideal for alfresco entertaining, general storage and home working. A great asset is the current planning permission for conversion to a residential dwelling. The approved drawings show an annexe with entrance hall, lounge, kitchen, bedroom with en suite, separate cloakroom with wc and office together with single garage.
