4 Bedroom detached house Bramcote Lane, Nottingham £750,000




Believed to be one of the first houses to be built in the area in the 1930s, the four-bedroom property was subsequently extended and renovated to provide currently a very spacious accommodation. "When I first came here I was struck by its size and number of windows," she recalls. "The whole house felt very light and spacious." Over the years they have been here, they have carried out substantial work on it: internally, rooms have been redecorated in cream and pastel shades; wooden floors have been laid and an Aqualisa shower has been added. "We have also remodelled a fireplace and had the en suite bathroom refitted," she says. Externally, solar panels have been installed, areas of roof have been refurbished and retiled and the chimneys have been capped.


The house has been an inviting place all year round. "In winter time, the family room is the perfect place to gather together and watch television - but it is good to have the choice of two reception rooms," she admits. "We love having friends and family with us at Christmas, when we relax in the drawing room and dining room, but whatever the season, the drawing room is always filled with sunshine." All the bedrooms are also bright and welcoming. "Our bedroom is very nice, especially with its cream and gold d?cor, and the children love their rooms because they are such good sizes. We also have a double guest bedroom, making it very easy to have people to stay."


The property, which has two entrances, has been a magnificent place to entertain. "We have had lots of lovely barbecues, with other families coming here with their children and pets, and I have hosted charity events, with up to 80 people coming for canap?s and cocktails," she says. "This is a fantastic house for social events but also for enjoying your privacy as a family when you choose." The Wollaton location of the property has made it easy for guests to visit. There is a good bus service into Nottingham and there are mainline stations at Beeston and Nottingham, with regular trains in to London.


The house also enjoys close proximity to the M1, as well as the A52, M42 and A50. East Midlands Airport is just a short drive from the house. "This is a wonderful place to live because everything is so near," she says. "We have good shops and supermarkets close by, including lots of little independent shops which are especially nice at Christmas time. There is a wide choice of restaurants and cafes in this area too, and we are well positioned for good schools."


At weekends, the owners have enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. Beautiful Wollaton Park is one of their favourite places to spend time. This features five hundred acres of spectacular grounds and includes both parkland and gardens. It is the scenic setting of a house designed by Robert Smythson and built by Sir Francis Willoughby between 1580 and 1588 for his family. Today the house is a prominent Grade I listed building that encompasses Nottingham's Natural History Museum. Herds of red and fallow deer still roam freely throughout the grounds and the formal gardens feature The Camellia House, which is said to be the oldest cast iron glasshouse in Europe. "We are only moving now because we are relocating but we have been very happy here," she says. "This has been a perfect family home to us and this area has a great deal to offer."
