Property SummaryAn opportunity to acquire a delightful country cottage with features including a stylish kitchen, private gardens, a small outbuilding and off-road parking in a village setting close to local amenities.
Within comparatively easy reach of Doncaster, Sheffield and Lincoln, the property combines all the advantages of country living with the benefits of three cities and an international airport all within a half-hour drive.
The traditional cottage is on the southern edge of the north Nottinghamshire village of Ranskill with open farmland to the rear. Amenities nearby include the village shop and off-licence and a fish-and-chips shop, which are both just around the corner, as well as the Blue Bell Inn , which has won favourable reviews from CAMRA since its recent refurbishment. The village also benefits from its own primary school, rated good by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2016. Buses from stops on the Great North Road offer regular services to Retford and Doncaster while a service from nearby Blyth Road runs as far as Bawtry. Doncaster, with its shopping centres, restaurants, banks, cinema and East Coast Mainline railway station is just over ten miles away as the crow flies while, for those looking to travel further afield, Doncaster Sheffield Airport is around nine miles by car and offers connections to Europe and the United States as well as some of the UKs regional airports.
Climbing plants on the white-painted front elevation lend the property an authentic cottage feel, along with the small courtyard garden surrounded by a low, stone wall and accessed by a wrought-iron gate which leads to the front door.
To the rear is an old stable yard, now enclosed and laid to concrete and offered privacy by head-high timber fencing. A sloping roof has been erected over one area ideal for alfresco dining in the summer months, there is an outside tap and lighting, some storage and a small outbuilding fitted with a stout, lockable timber door and off street parking.
The front door opens onto a small porch with a second door leading into the carpeted living room with a window overlooking the front of the house allowing in plenty of light. The eye is drawn to an authentic cast-iron fireplace surrounded by a stone frame, marble hearth and a solid-wood oak mantle with additional warmth in winter provided by a wall-mounted radiator. Fitted with a smoke alarm, the room also includes fitted under-stairs cabinets, coving, both ceiling- and wall-mounted lighting, bronze-effect plates around power points and light switches with carpeted stairs with open spindles and wood bannisters leading to the first floor.
An open arch leads through to the propertys authentic rustic style kitchen/diner. Cleverly-designed, wooden base and wall units make the most of the available space and have been fitted above and below worktops, with light blue ceramic splashback tiles above the cooking and preparation areas. The design also incorporates down lighters, plinth heater, space for both a fridge and freezer, a white ceramic composite sink with chrome mixer tap beneath the window overlooking the rear garden, a dual oven and grill beneath a four-ring induction hob and extractor, and space and plumbing for a washer/drier. A solid-wood, latched door also opens onto a large, walk-in pantry with space for fridge / freezer combo.
The stairs to the first floor rise to a landing with the house bathroom ahead, fitted with a bath, hand basin and WC. Both tastefully-decorated double bedrooms include wall-mounted radiators, carpets and some integral storage.
The property is double glazed, with warmth and hot water provided by a recently fitted gas-fired central heating system with time and temperature controls.
