A detached Victorian house within about ten acres including paddocks, stabling and workshop.
Highfield is an attractive Victorian country house situated on the southern edge of South Kelsey. The detached house is set well back from the road nestled amongst its own mature park-like grounds of about ten acres which are planted with plenty of mature trees, with excellent equestrian facilities on site making it perfect for an amateur rider or aspiring professional. Alternatively, the outbuildings, which include a commercial kitchen and workshop, offer great potential for redevelopment (subject to necessary consents). The house is beautifully appointed and has many preserved character features including original fireplaces, coving, ceiling roses and picture rails.
The accommodation was extended to the rear in 2004 to include the dining area, utility room and pantry, and a sunroom was added to the south-easterly aspect to capture the natural light and enjoying views of the garden. Within the original part of the house a grand entrance hall welcomes visitors to the home, with formal reception rooms to either side both having impressive fireplaces and bay windows overlooking the front garden. There is also an office, ground floor shower room with WC and a snug, which leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining area with its partly vaulted ceiling and contemporary farmhouse-style cabinetry. On the lower ground floor there are also useful cellars for storage. The bedrooms are arranged over the second and third floors, accessed by an impressive staircase with decorative balustrade. This includes six double bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms (some en suite) and an office.
The property is situated down a long, sweeping driveway within expansive grounds comprising formal gardens with a summerhouse, fruit trees, small vegetable patch, paddocks and stabling. The grounds have been beautifully maintained. Separate to the main house there is also a detached stables, tack room, workshop and commercial kitchen.

This is a wonderful family home set in the middle of its own extensive grounds, I especially like the grand proportions and so many reception rooms make it ideal for entertaining or just losing the family inRoo FisherProperty agent
