Property Summary

A substantial and individual home including a delightful, country-style kitchen, a large games room, a conservatory, a utility room, an extended garage and extensive gardens with timber summer house. In our opinion the property would easily adapt itself to a private annexe with the relevant consents.

While enjoying views over open fields to the front, the property is just a kilometre from the station in the centre of Kirkby-in-Ashfield and within easy reach of the M1, making it ideal for commuting to Mansfield or Nottingham.

Location
Diamond Avenue is a predominantly residential street mostly comprising large, individual detached homes set back from the road. Overlooking allotments and open fields, the property is within easy reach of bus stops offering services into Kirkby-in-Ashfield and Blidworth, with East Midlands trains from the former connecting regularly with Nottingham, Mansfield and Worksop.

Amenities in the partially-pedestrianised centre of Kirkby-in-Ashfield no more than 1km away include an Aldi and a Morrison’s supermarket, a good selection of small independent retailers, cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants, branches of some of the high street banks, a pharmacy, hairdressers and a number of smaller convenience stores.

The town’s Festival Hall includes a gym, sports hall and fitness studio while the Ashfield Health and Wellbeing Centre is located a little to the north of the town centre. Schools closest to the house include the Bracken Hill Special School and Abbey Hill Primary - both assessed as “good” at the last Ofsted inspections - while the Kirkby College secondary school is a located within the town centre off Hodgkinson Road.

The proximity of the M1 makes travel further afield by car relatively simple while the larger centres of Mansfield and Nottingham are approximately four and ten miles away respectively as the crow flies.

Exterior
Reminiscent of a Dutch design, the distinctive property sits back from the road, with a degree of privacy offered by hedges to three sides. Wrought-iron double gates allow access to the circular drive with an ornamental fountain at the centre of a round lawn. Some established shrubs, flowers and trees allow shade and colour in the summer months with a second set of decorative wrought-iron gates allowing access to the rear of the house.

A concrete drive leads to an extended, flat-roofed, detached single garage with up-and-over door and adjoining extension, ideal for use as a small hobby room or a plant nursery. The rear garden includes an old-fashioned, decorative street lamp, is laid mostly to lawn and enclosed by head-high evergreen hedges, with established conifer trees offering shade and additional privacy. It also boasts a timber summer house with decking to the front - allowing space for al fresco dining or relaxing.
Interior

There are two external doors to the front of the property - one leading directly into a room currently used as an office and the other into a porch with another door ahead opening onto the reception hall. Internal doors from the latter lead on into the lounge, the dining room – currently used as a downstairs bedroom – and the large kitchen/diner.

Fitted with carpets and with plenty of light flooding the room through windows on two sides, the lounge includes a traditional cast-iron fire, with a black-tiled hearth and surrounded by heat-resistant, decorative tiles and a polished oak mantle with an inset mirror above. Oak skirting boards and dado rails also complement the understated décor while the room is equipped with a TV point as well as brass-effect, candelabra-style light fittings.

However, perhaps one of the property’s most outstanding features is the eye-catching kitchen/diner fitted with a tiled floor with decorative accents, wall-mounted wooden shelving, solid pine cupboards and drawers and a delightful, brick-built inglenook fireplace incorporating a double Aga-style range with oven, grill and six-ring hob. The design also incorporates tiled preparation areas and a large Belfast-style sink with brass mixer tap beneath a window overlooking the rear garden - all illuminated by ceiling-mounted, recessed LED spotlights.

A carpeted dining area leads to double doors which open onto the comfortable, heated conservatory; an archway also leads through to the utility room, which is equipped with a separate Belfast-style sink with brass mixer tap, some shelving, storage and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier.

A separate internal door also opens on the downstairs loo, equipped with a WC and hand basin, while another internal door from the utility room leads to the sizeable games room, large enough to accommodate a full-size snooker table which will be included within the house sale.

Carpeted stairs rising to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto three further bedrooms, including a master with integral wardrobes and an en suite including a shower, WC, hand basin and under-eaves storage. Both of the other bedrooms share access to a Jack & Jill en suite bathroom, equipped with shower, a separate bath, WC, hand basin and also including some under-eaves storage space.

The property is double glazed and includes a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with a separate room thermostat.
