    About this property

    • The Old Manse is a most charming family home with a prime position in the heart of Alford, a community market town that sits at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Originally constructed in 1905, the house is built in a handsome and imposing style with elegant high-ceilinged rooms featuring many Edwardian architectural details such as decorative coving, original fireplaces, picture rails and intricate ceiling roses. The detached property has been thoughtfully renovated over the years with stylish kitchen, bath and shower rooms and a tasteful décor scheme that is sympathetic yet neutral, allowing for a new buyer to add their own personal stamp while honouring the character of the home.

      The accommodation is set across two floors and extends to more than 3000 sq ft, with generously proportioned living space and multiple reception rooms providing ample space for all the family. The ground floor is opened on to a grand and imposing entrance hall leading through to a well-sized family room, private study/office both with wood burning stoves and a double-aspect living room with large bay window and open fire. Off the hallway is the formal dining room and adjoining "Wren" kitchen complete with pantry, store room and adjacent utility room with access to the rear garden. Upstairs a spacious landing with storage provides access to the principal bedroom, four further doubles, one of which benefits from fitted wardrobes, a contemporary shower room and a newly decorated family bathroom with freestanding roll-top bathtub.

      The home is set back and well-screened from the road behind established trees with a sizeable access road to the side providing parking for a number of vehicles with access to an integral single garage and Tesla car charging point. There are lawned areas to the front and side flanked with a variety of established hedges whilst the majority of the space is situated to the rear, where there is a tranquil garden comprising a large lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and a ranging selection of plants including several apple and pear trees. The garden is extremely peaceful and private with no overlooking neighbours affording an excellent degree of seclusion.
