‘A little piece of history in the heart of Mansfield Woodhouse’
The Old Sweet Shop is a Grade II listed detached stone cottage full of charm and charater, having been lovingly renovated by its current owners. Originally built around 1850, the property was originally two separate cottages therefore today offers the opportunity to purchase a very spacious home. It boasts a wealth of original features including stable door, majority sash windows, log burner, original beams, windows seats and Belfast sink. The property has been decorated neutrally throughout providing a warm and cosy aesthetic. The Old Sweet Shop is situated in a conservation area and within walking distance to shops and amenities on Mansfield Woodhouse High Street.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall / boot room, downstairs W.C., kitchen, study / fourth bedroom, dining room with log burner and a substantial 23ft triple aspect lounge. The first-floor landing leads to three double bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a separate shower room.

It is well screened from the road and stands behind a tall stone wall boundary with gated access onto a gravel driveway providing plentiful parking for several vehicles.
