The living space delivers an elegant drawing room, which despite sizable proportions maintains a cosy feel with Minster stone style fireplace, quality log burner, garden views and access via porch. A separate dining room permits formal entertaining, further quality multi fuel burner and has immediate garden access for alfresco entertaining. A third reception room is provided, which is equally suited to use as home office or family playroom.

The breakfast kitchen allows more relaxed dining and is luxuriously appointed with a comprehensive range of bespoke units finished in a heritage colour, Silestone worktops and an excellent range of integrated appliances; to one side is a highly useful and generous pantry.

The garden is situated on the south and east side, wrapping around and is superbly landscaped into a number of "garden rooms" with multiple access points from the house to enjoy an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Ashlands enjoys a fine position on the northern approach to East Drayton, which is a highly regarded village, boasting many bridleways, lanes and footpaths on hand to enjoy.

Though essentially rural in nature, the village is ideally located for the area's excellent transport network as it lies just north of the A57 and is convenient for accessing the A1 at Markham Moor. This puts the wider motorway network within comfortable reach. Retford has a direct rail service into London Kings Cross (1hr 30 mins) and less from Newark to the south. Nottingham East Midlands international airport is within comfortable travelling distance. Leisure amenities and educational facilities (both state and independent) are well catered for.
