“It’s the perfect waterside retreat”, says Watsons Estate Agents, the firm marketing this property in Nuthall, and just who wouldn’t love a house set in 1.7 acres and with its own fishing lake.
In grounds that once formed part of the Nuthall Temple Estate, the selling agent declares this to be a “detached family home like no other”, and indeed, it is something special.
Look out over the lawns at the back of the house and you’ll discover what has been described as a pond or a lake. Regardless of the terminology used to describe it, this is a stunning feature.
Surrounded by woodland and measuring just under an acre, this body of water was fully dredged in 2008 to a depth of up to 5 feet. It is fed by water from a natural spring as well as the overflow from Temple Lake via a stream.
Fishing platforms have been erected and we understand that it is extensively stocked with carp, roach and bream as well as Tench, Perch and Pike. There’s even a boathouse should you fancy a lazy day messing about on the water.
All this creates an idyllic location, and then there is the south-facing garden that has been thoughtfully designed and landscaped to allow you to soak in the view.
The property itself is 1950s in exterior design but with a modern interior.
This is a three-bedroom property but has the potential to extend, subject to planning.
Much of the accommodation takes advantage of the view, for instance, two of the three bedrooms have balconies. There is a modern open-plan living space, perfect for entertaining and for busy family life, with a lounge diner and a breakfast kitchen. A further ground floor room provides a study but this has the flexibility for alternative uses.
As well as a detached garage and driveway, there are formal gardens, a small wood and outbuildings including a greenhouse and a shed.
The house in Nuthall, Nottingham, is priced at offers over £725,000.
