About this property

  • Situated on the edge of Blankney village and surrounded by rolling countryside, this detached freehold property is thought to date to 1881 and retains its Victorian grandeur due to a wealth of original features, including mullion windows, ornate fireplaces, picture rails and wood flooring. The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout, with elegant high-ceilinged rooms and traditional décor that is sympathetic yet neutral, allowing for a new buyer to add their personal stamp while honouring the unique character of this period home. The property sits in extensive and well-maintained grounds.

    The accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends to about 6599 sq ft, with a cellar for storage. Access is via either a grand entrance hall featuring a log burning stove with original carved wood surround or a handy boot room adjacent to the kitchen. Three receptions include a cosy sitting room, and formal dining and drawing rooms, both with large bay windows. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room is a sociable space with patio doors for indoor/outdoor entertaining; it benefits from Shaker-style cabinetry, a central breakfast bar with sink and built-in wine fridge, an AGA range cooker and underfloor heating. A utility offers space for appliances, while a separate pantry, study and WC complete the ground floor

    A galleried first floor landing leads to seven bedrooms, one of which is currently utilised as a dressing room for the principal bedroom thanks to a connecting door and extensive fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom also boasts an original tiled fireplace and an en suite with freestanding bathtub, cubicle shower and twin basins. The remaining bedrooms share access to a family bathroom, shower room and separate WC.

    Accessed via a long gated gravel driveway offering ample private parking, The Old Rectory is an impressive double fronted Victorian house set in about 3.5acres of land that encompasses sweeping lawns, well-stocked flowerbeds and private woodland. The secluded gardens wrap around the house on all sides, with a south-facing lawn to the front, a paved patio to the rear and views of the neighbouring Blankney Golf Club through the established trees that mark the boundary. Garden and wood stores are convenient for storage.

Now this is a very special property, with the most amazing proportions on both floors and overlooking one of my favourite golf courses in Lincolnshire.
