We are privileged to bring The Old Bakehouse at Flintham to the market. As the name of the property infers, The Old Bakehouse is one of the most characteristic and historic buildings within the unspoilt linear village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire.
The Old Bakehouse, a Grade II Listed Georgian family home with outbuildings set in 0.5 acres. The Old Bakehouse was last seen on the market over 50 years ago with the house, garage and substantial outbuildings offering a rare opportunity to create a magnificent family home within one of Nottinghamshire's most picturesque villages.
It is obvious when you walk around this historic Grade II Listed gem the love and care that has been invested in to the magnificent and colourful gardens over the past 50 years. The gardens have been created and maintained very much as a cottage garden from the beautiful manicured small front garden with its feature topiary, to the well managed Victorian ivy and rambling roses which climb the walls of both the house and outbuildings.
The Yorkstone patio and pebbled driveway access the double garage, being very much in keeping with the period nature of the property.
The 18th century water pump and trough, outbuildings and the mature balanced perimeter planting provide unique privacy for the showpiece rear family garden.
A pathway meanders from the rear garden through the fields to the rear to the 7 acre wildflower paddock which can be purchased via separate negotiation.
Very little has changed in Flintham, the village looks very much how it looked in the Georgian era with the Main Street showcasing unspoilt, traditional red brick pan tiled architecture throughout the area.
The village retains its primary school, has a vibrant and community facing cricket club with the recently refurbished Boot and Shoe Inn (said to be frequented by many of the dam busters while stationed at the local RAF Syerston during World War 2) being at the heart of the community.
Flintham Primary school was rated Outstanding by Ofsted in their last assessment. Toot Hill school in Bingham was rated Outstanding by Ofsted in their last assessment.
