A large scale period barn conversion, originally converted in the 1980s offering a wonderful home of appreciable character in a sheltered courtyard garden setting in the popular small village settlement of Goverton situated between the larger adjoining villages of Thurgarton and Bleasby.
The extremely spacious flexibly planned interior affords scope for a small self contained annex arrangement on the ground floor, if required, and on this basis the property lends itself to a blended family with room to comfortably accommodate dependent parents or more independently minded teenagers.
Goverton is a small settlement set in unspoilt Trent Valley countryside, on the north side of the Trent some 13 miles or so from Nottingham, with a range of village amenities close to hand in the larger settlement of Bleasby.
Bleasby is a thriving village set in unspoilt Trent Valley countryside between the regional centres of Nottingham and Newark on Trent and some 4 miles to the south of Southwell.
The village has a useful range of amenities with a highly rated Church of England Primary School, the award winning Waggon and Horses Inn and an ‘active’ church community - the essential ingredients of a traditional village life.
Thurgarton offers many of the essentials of ‘village life’ – a village inn, a cricket pitch within the grounds of Thurgarton Priory, St Peters Church and excellent local walks. There is a direct road-rail access along the Trent Valley into Nottingham centre and bus collection points for the Nottingham High Schools.
The thriving Minster town of Southwell offers a wider range of retail amenities, professional services and sports centre, and Southwell schooling is of a renowned standard across the age ranges.
