Built circa 1855, this spacious Victorian property is well situated in the heart of Eastwood town, an historic mining area with busy high street, plenty of local amenities and schools, parks and walks within easy reach. While there is no parking at the property, there are a selection of carparks which may offer annual permit parking, and a number of regular bus routes connect Eastwood with larger townships such as Kimberley, Nottingham, Heanor and Alfreton.
Occupied by the current owners for approximately fifty years, the property has been a happy family home with many memories made. While many of the original Victorian features were removed by the previous owners, the charm and character are still evident in high ceilings, spacious rooms and the stunning second-floor dormer window. The property has undergone some modernisation over recent years, including sympathetically styled double glazed windows, combi boiler and fitted kitchen.
