THREE WORDS - Character. Country. Space
Crofts enjoys a super plot with generous south facing gardens set in the heart of the picturesque village of Carlton Husthwaite. It is a charming blend of character and country style.
The property dates back to 1850 and is a wonderful family home. The accommodation is just over 3000 sq. ft, downstairs is a mix of large spaces with intimate quiet rooms. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom.
The attic has been converted to create two rooms, ideal for a home office or magical playroom!! A large double garage is attached to the kitchen, incorporating the utility and for those buyers looking to make a home their own there is scope for conversion (subject to relevant planning permission).
Off here is a lovely garden room with garden views. There is plenty of private off-street parking. What’s not to love!
As you drive through the double timber gates you immediately feel a sense of space & privacy. Head into the breakfast kitchen, there is a country farmhouse vibe with beamed ceiling and tiled flooring. The focal point is the obligatory AGA, perfect for the chief cook to rustle up hearty suppers. There is a range of floor mounted cupboards along with a built-in dresser for displaying the best china. There is space for a table and chairs making it a sociable space to catch up on the days events whilst waiting for dinner.
Head through to the dining hall, bathed in natural light from the windows and fully glazed door to the side. The ceiling is beamed and there is a tiled floor. This leads to the first sitting room with plenty of space for comfy sofas and additional furniture.
The log burning stove makes it cosy, we can imagine watching a family movie on a wintery night.
The second sitting room is a generous size, ideal for entertaining and with open fire perfect for hanging Christmas stockings! There is a garden room off the garage with lovely garden views.
Take the turnaround staircase to the first floor, the window overlooking the rear makes it wonderfully light and airy. Upstairs has a feel of a north and west wing! To the north there are three double bedrooms, all with plenty of space for additional furniture.
Another passageway leads to the Master with garden views, a door leads to a second staircase (to breakfast kitchen) and there is space here for further storage.
The shower room has shower cubicle, built in sink, wc and bidet. The family bathroom is smart with neutral tiles, bath with shower over and wc, ideal for the morning rush or a leisurely soak after a busy day!
A further staircase leads to the converted attic, with two rooms this space would make a quiet home office or magical playroom! There are oodles of additional storage in the eaves.
Crofts is set within beautiful private grounds, the south facing gardens have been well maintained and are perfect for little ones to play and a haven for green fingered lovers!! The paved terrace is ideal for alfresco dining, entertaining or simply enjoying the sunset with a chilled G & T.
The gardens are predominantly lawned with shaped borders housing a plethora of flowering plants, shrubs and trees.
Continue along the steppingstone path and here you will find a secret garden with apple trees. There are two stables and a tack room which would make a fantastic workshop/man cave!
The front garden is lawned with mature shrubs and perennials. Wrought iron gates lead to a gravelled driveway with further timber gates leading to the rear.
There is a large double garage with two sets of timber doors, with access from the kitchen and leads into the garden room.
