GROUND FLOOR 1
The property is accessed via an entrance vestibule which leads to an impressive entrance hall with parquet flooring and a traditional oak stairway with feature handrails, plus a main cloakroom with a w/c. There are three reception spaces: a large dual-aspect lounge with a recently-fitted flame-effect fireplace; a sitting room with a bay window and marble hearth; and a separate dining room with moulded coving to the ceiling. There is also a large breakfast-kitchen with stone-effect work surfaces, an eight-ring gas range cooker; and high-specification tile-effect vinyl flooring. This leads to an adjoining breakfast area with a sash window.
GROUND FLOOR 2
Elsewhere, the property has an inner lobby (with a second staircase) which leads to a walk-in pantry with antique ceramic flooring; a utility room with space and plumbing for white goods; and a music room with a vaulted wooden panel ceiling. The rear entrance lobby leads to a showerroom with a low-level w/c; a covered storage area with a concrete sluice; a second utility room; a store room and a second cloakroom with a w/c.
Upstairs on the first floor, the space continues with six large bedrooms including a master bedroom with character features, a walk-in dressing room and an ensuite bathroom. There is also a second bedroom suite with a dressing area and an ensuite showerroom, plus a family bathroom with a four-piece suite and garden views.
Finally, on the second floor, there are four more character-filled bedrooms with garden views, plus a bathroom with a recently-fitted three-piece suite. The second-floor landing also has a walk-in storage cupboard.
Outside, there is a large outbuilding which is currently used as an office. It can accommodate between 8 and 10 staff if required and could easily be converted into a games room, annex or equivalent.
Outside, the property continues to excel. The 1.7-acre plot is accessed via a tree-lined driveway which leads to parking for multiple vehicles and a double garage with extensive shelving, power and lighting. The property also benefits from landscaped wrap-around gardens with - among other things - a formal lawn, a summerhouse, a sun terrace and patio, plus ornamental ponds. Must be seen to be appreciated!
The property is located on London Road, one of Retford’s most picturesque and exclusive roads. Retford itself is a thriving market town of c.20,000 people and the property is situated within close proximity of shops and other amenities including The Elizabethan Academy. Retford benefits from excellent transport links with good access to the A1, a regular network of bus services and a direct link to London King's cross via Retford railway station.
