Butterfield Lane is a charming period property that has been carefully restored to preserve many original and attractive features throughout. It is a surprise to find this peaceful haven with such easy access to the town centre, barely a mile away. Minutes from Sopwell House Spa, and the Verulum Golf course, it enjoys peaceful, rural views across fields and the beautiful nature trails along the protected river Ver. A pleasant base for working from home, it is conveniently close to several parks, shopping facilities and schools, as well as being just a short bike ride to both stations, and with excellent motorway and travel links.
As you arrive at Butterfield Lane, you are greeted by a mature and colourful cottage garden, complete with a paved driveway offering off-road parking and an electric car charging point. Stepping through the porch and original front door, you are welcomed by a bright and spacious hallway where there is a downstairs cloakroom and coat cupboard. In addition, an attractive ground floor, fourth bedroom is perfect for flexible use as a guest bedroom, office, playroom or additional reception room. This airy room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, skylight and a useful basin. With oak wood flooring and plantation shutters, the spacious dual aspect lounge and dining room have good ceiling height, like the rest of the house, and are bathed in light, with a feature fireplace and French doors opening onto a patio and the rear garden. A useful study also shares views of the patio.
The adjoining, eat-in kitchen offers ample storage, and is filled with light from windows, a skylight, and the large sliding doors adjacent to the breakfast area that looks out onto the patio and garden.
As you make your way to the first floor, the wall of built in storage lining the turned stairwell complements the ample storage in the three bright and good-sized bedrooms, which have lovely views and two original feature fireplaces. Bedroom three is currently used as an office, again with far-reaching views towards the river Ver. The updated bathroom includes a fully tiled four-piece bathroom suite, dual aspect windows, storage and a utility cupboard housing hookups for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The outdoor space behind the property has been thoughtfully designed and offers a haven of peace, divided into several areas. A large patio area, surrounded by mature plants and a well-established herb garden, is conveniently next to the BBQ. To the rear of the garden, an extensive, raised decked area is surrounded by mature trees and a variety of plants; there are also flexible seating locations for entertaining or just to enjoy the tranquil setting.
In addition, there is ample scope to further develop and extend the property, after reactivating lapsed planning consents. Ref: 5/2005/1854
