A RARE OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE MISSED! A very impressive period cottage tucked away at the end of a private lane in the heart of Calverton, with the village shopping precinct and amenities literally across the road. The current owners have modernised and extended the cottage to a very high standard and is immaculate throughout. Side entrance hall with downstairs toilet, three reception rooms (two with wood burners) and a large farmhouse style breakfast kitchen which leads out to extensive landscaped gardens. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and small study
ursery. Ample courtyard parking, garage and adjoining fully converted and heated outbuilding, ideal if you work from home!
Calverton village lies to the north of Arnold, with close links to Woodborough and a regular bus service into Arnold town centre and the city. The centre of the village has a shopping precinct including a Sainsbury's Local, as well as various take-aways, pub restaurants and other local amenities and has a good mix of modern and period properties.
The Avenue is virtually opposite the shopping precinct, with the property situated at the top end of the lane on a surprisingly large plot, with ample block paved courtyard parking for several vehicles, in addition to the 6.6m x 3m garage. The gardens are quite impressive and very well cared for, with the addition of an adjoining fully insulated and heated 3.2m x 2.75m outbuilding which is perfect if you work from home. It has its own power/RCD board, ceiling downlights and telephone point.
The cottage itself has a great blend of modern and period features, including beamed ceilings, log burners, traditional style cloakroom and bathroom and bespoke double glazing. Amtico flooring also features in the breakfast kitchen, hall and downstairs toilet. From the kitchen, access can be gained to all three reception rooms, with both the dining room and snug having feature log burning stoves. The lounge is the largest of the three, with double doors leading out to the patio.
A split-level staircase leads you upstairs to the bedrooms and bathroom as well as the small third room currently used as a study, but could easily be a nursery as an alternative. The bathroom is lovely, with a traditional style suite with chrome furniture and pipework, claw & ball roll top bath and separate shower cubicle with fixed head rain shower. Both bedrooms are comfortable doubles with the main bedroom overlooking the gardens and St Wilfred's church in the background.
