Greenhedge Cottage is a fascinating detached period cottage which offers a deceptive level of accommodation and occupies a quiet backwater, tucked away on a small no-through lane in a rural setting close to the villages of Orston and Thoroton.
Understood to have formerly been two cottages the property was altered to create one versatile two storey home, sympathetically extended and reconfigured as well as being tastefully modernised throughout combining both traditional and contemporary elements.
The property now offers four double bedrooms, one with ensuite and separate family bathroom. To the ground floor there are three main reception areas including a superb open plan living/dining kitchen which links through to a conservatory area at the rear overlooking the garden.
The property occupies a delightful landscaped plot affording wonderful open views to all sides with a considerable gated driveway leading to a detached double garage. The main gardens lie to the rear and side of the property where there are hard landscaped terraces and lawned garden.
Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
Thoroton is a small village and amenities are available in the adjacent villages of Orston, Aslockton and Flintham including highly regarded primary schools, there is a railway station at Aslockton which links to Nottingham and Grantham and from Grantham a high speed train to Kings Cross in just over an hour. Further facilities can be found in the nearby market town of Bingham including a range of shops, doctors and dentists, leisure centre and secondary school. The village is convenient for commuting via the A52 and A46 for the cities of Nottingham and Leicester with good road links to the A1 and M1.
