    About this property

    • This handsome family home was built in 1827 and offers a wealth of original character in a sought-after setting, with many footpaths locally for walks, a nature reserve nearby and Theddlethorpe Beach just seven miles away. The whitewashed property sits within a good-size plot and offers fantastic scope for personalisation by the new owner, with potential to extend or improve subject to individual tastes (and according to the necessary consents). The owners have beautifully cared for this home and its array of period features, including original fireplaces, sash windows, picture rails and a panelled ceiling in the drawing room. There are lovely views from the house across the gardens to the rear.

      Spread out across two floors in a convenient layout that makes the most of the available space, the accommodation is generously proportioned throughout and extends to a total of about 2618 sq ft. A grand entrance hall provides a welcoming first impression and leads to the four well-sized reception rooms: a formal dining room, sitting room and drawing room, with a separate breakfast room adjoining the farmhouse style kitchen. There is also a very useful walk-in pantry, a utility room, study and cloakroom with WC. Upstairs there are four sizeable double bedrooms, one benefitting from its own en suite bathroom while the remaining three share access to a family shower room.

      Woodland House is set within about three acres of land, including a gravel driveway with plenty of space for parking, an attractive rockery filled with pretty bedding plants, an expansive rear lawn bordered by established trees and an attached paddock enclosed by post and rail fencing which would be suitable for livestock. Though set in the middle of town, this feels very much like a countryside setting.
