A handsome four-bedroom Victorian home in a prime Lincoln setting with a view of the cathedral.
Well-proportioned and full of character, this detached Victorian property has a spacious feel throughout, with high ceilings and large windows affording excellent natural light. In particular, the sitting room with its lofty vaulted space, is a fabulous room for entertaining and has exposed ceiling trusses and a brick fireplace. The house has been in the same ownership for the last 40 years and has been subject to a variety of improvements over the years and has fantastic potential for further enhancement and personalisation by the new owner.
The spacious accommodation extends to over 1900 sq ft over three floors, including a large cellar space on the basement level which is useful for storage. The ground floor accommodation is entered via an inviting entrance hall which leads to the two distinct areas of accommodation.
The living space, which features a formal dining room, well-appointed kitchen and a 28ft sitting room which leads out to an elevated timber balcony providing an additional dining space in the warmer months.
There are two good-size bedrooms on the ground floor, one with an en suite shower room, plus a cloakroom with WC. Upstairs on the first floor there are a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with both bath and shower.
The house sits side on to the road and is approached by a private gated driveway which has ample off-street parking for a number of vehicles, as well as access to the attached larger-than-average garage. The garden is situated to the rear and is an excellent size for the central location, with a well-defined boundary in a mix of wall, mature hedging and established trees. The lawn is a good size and is bordered by shrubs and flowerbeds, and there is an elevated timber balcony above a paved terrace and a greenhouse.

This is one of my favourite uphill Lincoln houses in such a good position to enjoy all that the Bailgate has to offer and the sitting room is a wonderful light and open spaceRoo FisherProperty agent
