The Chestnuts is a rich Grade II listed property with many original period features ranging from the 15th to the 19th Century, and situated in the heart of Newark town centre. We believe the house incorporates sandstone taken from the castle, and the blue stone from the castle wharf following the end of the civil war. The accommodation is exceptionally spacious and versatile and located across three floors, including up to six bedrooms, four reception rooms and two bathrooms. There is secure off road parking and a large garage/workshop. The property retains an exceptional wealth of original character, charm and features and early viewing is highly recommended for those clients seeking to purchase a rare property.
