About this property

  • Highwall sits proudly within a sizeable plot close to the historic centre of Lincoln, with excellent road and rail links nearby while being well secluded by the high walls that give the home its name and mature greenery. The modern home is a result of an extensive improvement of a 1960s build, resulting in a total and virtually unrecognisable transformation to create a striking and beautifully appointed home. Using modern materials, in particular glazing to allow excellent natural light, the home has been finished to an exacting standard and offers fabulously appointed interiors. Colourful tiles, wood, glass, leather and steel combine with designer fittings by Buster + Punch to a stylish affect; this is a home designed for entertaining. The kitchen and bathrooms are particular highlights, featuring geometric shapes, handsome cabinetry and premium sanitaryware to create spa-like spaces. The kitchen also benefits from integrated Gaggenau appliances.

    The most impressive space sits on the ground floor at the heart of the house: a triple-height open-plan living room, where expanses of glazing follow the angular lines of the vaulted ceilings, allowing light to stream in. A central staircase clad with slim timber boards provides texture to the interior aesthetic, with crittal glass shuttering cleverly connecting the upper and lower levels. A double-fronted log burner has been built into the dividing kitchen wall.

    Upstairs the accommodation is arranged around a generous galleried landing which overlooks the sitting room. The double aspect principal bedroom over looking the garden has a fabulous bathroom, dressing room, good storage and a private staircase leading up to the second-floor loft, perfect for storage. There are a further four double bedrooms, one with en suite facilities, and a family bathroom with both bath and shower facilities. A linen store with laundry chute completes the accommodation.

    The property is situated in a tucked-away setting on a private road, with tall stone walls concealing the house from the road. To the front there is a driveway accessed by a gated entrance, which provides off-street parking and use of a triple garage with a large storage shed to the rear. Over the garage there is a first-floor studio space which has been soundproofed, offering excellent potential as a recording studio, additional accommodation or yoga/Pilates facility. The house is well enveloped by a generous plot of about half an acre, with expansive gardens landscaped to provide a paved terrace sheltered by the cantilevered building, lawned areas, mature borders stocked with a variety of shrubs and a number of specimen trees adding to the feeling of privacy and seclusion.
