STAMP DUTY PAID & NO UPWARD CHAIN! A stunning 4 double bedroom converted former school bordering Burntstump Country Park with an abundance of character & original features including tall and arched windows & an antique spiral staircase. The property sits within an established plot & enjoys an in/out drive with double garage. VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE ON REQUEST!


This elegant former school of the Seely Estate has been converted to provide a stunning four bedroom family home, tastefully combining original features with contemporary design.

Situated in a hamlet on the edge of Sherwood Forest to the south of Papplewick, Burnstump Lodge is a walker’s paradise, whilst being conveniently only seven miles from Nottingham and the M1 Junction 27.

The property is accessed to the front elevation via a feature arched front door into the porch which in turn provides access to the entrance hall. From here internal doors open to the sitting/dining room, breakfast kitchen, bedrooms three and four as well as the ground floor bathroom.

The striking, vaulted sitting/dining room boasts a fantastic open space with the original school Sash windows, exposed brick open fireplace and raised dining area. An antique cast iron spiral staircase offers access to the airy mezzanine library and further first floor accommodation. An impressive 14’0 window incorporates a door leading to the rear garden. Additional access leads to a cosy family/garden room which also has a Victorian open fireplace.

The breakfast kitchen is generous in size with a full range of fitted base and eye level units with granite effect work surfaces and integrated appliances including a tall fridge, dishwasher, extractor fan and recess for a microwave.

Beyond the kitchen is a separate utility with provision and plumbing for white goods, a range of fitted storage as well as access to the conservatory which enjoys an east facing aspect making it an ideal breakfast room with views over the garden and French doors to the patio.

Burntstump Lodge boasts four good size bedrooms with two bedrooms being situated on the ground floor with bedroom four currently being utilised as a study and both being complemented by a bathroom fitted with a three piece suite including a corner bath.

Bedrooms one and two are situated on the first floor with the master bedroom suite enjoying a feature arched window to the front elevation as well as a walk-in wardrobe and a modern en-suite shower room fitted with a three piece suite comprising push button WC, washbasin with vanity storage below and a large shower cubicle with power shower. Bedroom two also has a shower room with adjoining WC as well as an east facing balcony accessed via French doors with lovely views across the garden.

The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system as well as an abundance of off street parking provided by an in and out gravelled drive to the front elevation and a double garage with pedestrian access door, power and lighting.

The property sits within a 0.75 acre approximate plot and enjoys beautiful, mature gardens to all sides. The gardens are mainly lawned with a private tree lined aspect and a large patio area, decorative pond, vegetable patch as well as two useful out-buildings with power and lighting.

In conclusion, this is an exceptionally well maintained, characterful detached family home which has retained a wealth of its original charm, ideally situated on the edge of Burntstump Country Park and affording easy access to Nottingham and other regional centres and amenities.
