THE PROPERTY

A SUBSTANTIAL FAMILY RESIDENCE OFFERING POTENTIAL AND SCOPE FOR UPDATING NESTLED IN WONDERFUL GARDENS AND GROUNDS. A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family home occupying a wonderful semi-rural position to the edge of the highly sought after village of Guilsborough. Believed to date from the 1930s, the property offers spacious and versatile family living accommodation arranged over three floors and has remained in the same family's ownership for the past 41 years. While offering good proportioned living accommodation, the property does now require modernisation and improvement offering a fantastic project and the perfect opportunity to create a dream home set in splendid established gardens and grounds. On the ground floor a main central hallway with staircase rising to the first floor provides access to the principal ground floor living accommodation which comprises sitting room with attractive dual aspect and open fireplace, family room/snug with double doors opening on to an raised outside terrace, a separate dining room and office. Also to the ground floor there is a good proportioned laundry/boot room with cloakroom off which in turn provides access to the kitchen which comprises a range of pine fitted base and eye level units, granite worktop surfaces, Rayburn and integrated Samsung electric oven and hob.

Dripwell House is located at the end of a private drive which in turn affords access to the main house, own drive and an open hard standing area providing off road parking for a number of vehicles.
