A unique four bedroom family home with equestrian facilities, set in an equally unique location at the heart of the beautiful, unspoilt conservation village of Letwell.
Set in an acre of secluded stone walled gardens, bordered on two sides by open countryside, this four bedroom stone property oozes character and historic charm in equal measure and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
The house occupies the site of the original Letwell Manor House dating back to c.1615 and the village history notes that the huge oak timbers inside are reputed to have come from an ancient medieval galleon.
The property has been home to the same family for over fifty years and is only now for sale as the owners are reluctantly downsizing.
The property can be utilised as an equestrian property, having its own stabling, plus an adjoining three acres of land with a manège that the vendors have rented for the past 50 years and which will continue to be available to the purchaser.
Letwell is an attractive and particularly sought after rural village, within South Yorkshire and on the border of Nottinghamshire, which lies between Dinnington and Langold, just off the B6463. The nearby market town of Worksop provides a wide range of facilities, shops and services.
The property is located within the Conservation Area, but is not subject to any Listed Building classification. The vendors inform us that it is likely that the property is in need of a new roof, and it is in need of some general up-grading.
