PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: Life in the country with 12 acres of land

Grantham House, North Somercotes
Grantham House, North Somercotes

Grantham’s Cottage - £300,000

This property represents an exciting opportunity to create a unique country life, surrounded by fields about half a mile from North Somercotes with no close neighbours yet only a few seconds drive, or a healthy walk, from the facilities in this larger than average village, which includes two pubs, primary and secondary schools, post office, various shops, takeaways, fishing lakes with café and playing fields.

The property has been built in recent years on the site of a former cottage and has principal walls faced with quality brickwork all set beneath a pitched clay pan-tiled roof, while windows are traditional sashes with double glazed panes.

At present the house has a partial solid fuel central heating system.

On the first floor there are two very good sized bedrooms and a wash-room with WC together with access from the latter to two rear roof spaces.

On the ground floor there is a third bedroom and bathroom, together with two good sized reception rooms and a breakfast-kitchen with pantry. Due to the generous formal and kitchen gardens, there is ample space to extend the house and construct outbuildings if required subject to obtaining planning and building regulation consent.

Presently there is a brick built garage/workshop, some smaller timber buildings and the original cottage earth closet stands at the end of the garden as testimony to the old house.

On the south side of the driveway and garage is a small paddock/orchard with fruit trees and the remaining land comprises gardens, pasture and arable land forming an ideal opportunity to create a productive smallholding or equestrian establishment (stp). In total the land extends to 11.82 acres (sts)
