Situated in the quiet and close community of semi-rural Hammerwich, this magnificent property is surrounded by shrubbery and accessed via its own entrance gate.
Built in 1925, it is steeped in character. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (including a downstairs bathroom), it would make a stunning family home with almost endless opportunities to turn it into the property of your dreams.
On the market for £750,000, the current owner is only the third owner of the property which was extended further in 1976.
If you love the thought of entertaining family and friends in stunning surroundings then this would be the perfect home for you, as we are told that the current owners have held many BBQs, pool parties, dinners, celebrations due to the extensive amount of outside space and the large kitchen/diner.
Another attractive factor of this property is the potential to really make it your own, based on your personal preferences. For example, you could open up the kitchen/diner/utility room, modernise the en-suite and also convert the garage into a granny annexe for an elderly relative or teenager or incorporate a gym or large office too. The choice really is yours!
To the outside of the property you’ll find a swimming pool, useful double garage with conversion potential and 1/3 of an acre of land. If you have green fingers then this fantastic space really is a gardener’s dream with plenty of potential to adapt the landscape to suit you, as well as add decking/seating areas.
In addition, the potential to keep horses is also possible as stables are located around the corner in Gartmore
The name Hammerwich means a place on a hill from the Anglo-Saxon words ‘wic’ meaning place and ‘hammer’ meaning hill. And that description couldn’t be any more fitting to the surroundings.
Less than 700 people live in this quiet and peaceful village, making it the perfect base to bring up a family within a friendly community where people say hello while walking their dogs in the local farmer’s fields. It really is idyllic!
