We are excited to bring to the market this Grade II gothic property, situated within Newstead Abbey. To the top of its own watchtower, the property enjoys the most breath-taking views which can only be matched by the Abbey itself. The Abbey – which dates back to the 12th century - was the former residence of the famous poet Lord Byron who back in 1749 commissioned the work on the castle to enjoy re-enactments on the garden lake. This tranquil estate has 16 oases gardens along with many enchanting walks and trails making it one of a kind and truly a beautiful place to live. The property benefits from a superb mix of original features and modern fittings with a layout that takes advantage of its unique surroundings as well as benefiting from no service charge associated with living in the Abbey grounds. To the ground floor is a solid oak fitted kitchen with Granite worktops and a range of high end appliances complete with a utility room / WC and a spacious living room benefiting from a central stone fireplace with a log burning stove. The first floor offers the master bedroom serviced by an en-suite and a dressing room and upstairs on the second floor are a further two bedrooms and a Jack & Jill shower room suite. The property fronts onto a courtyard with one off road parking space and a log store.
