Detached Georgian listed townhouse with striking frontage, extensive parking and about half an acre of private gardens, situated in the pretty town of Market Deeping.

About this property

  • An attractive double-fronted Grade II listed townhouse, The Cedars is deceptively spacious with a versatile flow to the accommodation's layout. The property's Collyweston slate roof was partially renewed in 2014, whilst the house was also electrically rewired and replumbed, in part, in 2006.

    The front door with an attractive fanlight above, opens into a Victorian tiled entrance hallway which is flanked by the dual-aspect drawing room with marble fireplace and garden views, and the dining room, which has a cast iron fireplace. Both rooms have solid wooden floors.

    Past the main staircase and cloaks/WC, the family room has a wood burning stove and adjoins the quarry tiled floored kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a bespoke handmade wooden suite with granite worktops and a central island unit with breakfast bar, together with a modern gas triple oven Aga, with four-ring hob and warming plate, and a pantry. The kitchen is open to an adjoining stone flagged, vaulted garden room, a versatile room for living or dining, from which double doors open to a covered cobbled cart house for garaging, or which would be ideal for summer entertaining.

    The first floor has two staircases with the principal bedroom suite occupying a wing accessed by the secondary staircase, with a landing dressing room, en suite bathroom and double bedroom. Accessed from the main staircase's landing, bedroom two is a double with bedrooms three and four created within what was a spacious dual-aspect double bedroom, with the family shower room close by. There are two further second floor attic bedrooms.

    A gated driveway adjoins the house to the south, with a tarmac driveway that passes the dwelling and the double carport garaging to an extensive gravelled turning sweep to the rear of the house.

    The gardens are a delight and are surprisingly spacious for a central town setting, at over half an acre. Largely laid to lawn and partially walled, a central pathway leads through the gardens between the lawns with mixed fruit, yew and deciduous trees that offer a vibrant backdrop, together with screening and privacy.

I love the privacy and the mature gardens at The Cedars, coupled with the elegant and spacious accommodation. With parking and garaging for several vehicles within the gated grounds, and Market Deeping's shops and services on the doorstep, this is a fabulous family home.
