We recommend a viewing of The Old Stables to truly appreciate the size and nature of this most versatile property. It is a two storey barn conversion which successfully combines charming cottage attributes with a high calibre modern specification.

The accommodation commences with a rustic entrance porch leading to the sitting room which is a bright living room with triple aspect and contemporary oak fireplace and multi-fuel stove. Patio doors open to a super conservatory offering access to and views over the rear garden. There is an excellent open plan living dining kitchen arrangement suitable for flexible family living and surely the hub of the home. The kitchen is luxuriously appointed with a range of buttermilk country units and integrated appliances. A utility room supports the kitchen.

There are two bedrooms at ground floor level together with house bathroom, refitted and luxuriously appointed with contemporary accents. At first floor level is a bright galleried landing, two further bedrooms and a well appointed shower room.

Outside there is an electric gated driveway and an excellent garage cum amenity block featuring generous garage with workshop/storage area to one side and a substantial garden room suitable for a variety of purposes. The gardens are particularly well presented and landscaped with mood enhancing accent lighting.

The Old Stables is situated in the hamlet of Morton lying to the western periphery of the North Nottinghamshire market town of Retford. Town centre amenities are a short car journey away. The property is ideally situated for those wishing to commute on the A1(M) or access the wider motorway network. Both Retford and Doncaster to the north have mainline railway stations giving access to London King's Cross. Nearby is Clumber Park, an excellent National Trust facility.

Leisure amenities and educational facilities (both state and independent) are well catered for.

Leave Retford westbound on the A620, after the second mini-roundabout leaving the wooded town boundary take the next left and follow the road round to the right into the hamlet of Morton and The Old Stables will be found on the right hand side.
