About this property

    A substantial Grade II listed 18th century country house, with four reception rooms and five bedrooms, additional attic rooms, and an adjoining two bedroom cottage. The property occupies an elevated position above the River Welland, which forms the southern garden boundary of its 2.6 acres (1.07 ha) of landscaped grounds.

    The Hall combines an elegant feel with scale and proportion. The principal reception rooms offer great symmetry and have high ceilings and ornate cornice work, together with working shutters, typical of the period. The bedrooms are all generous doubles and there is an obvious opportunity to expand further into the attic rooms.

    The gardens are a delight; landscaped, with sweeping lawns, fine views and sightlines, sloping down to the river, where there is a jetty together with about 125 metres of single bank fishing rights.

    It is a fabulously versatile property.

    The wide wooden floored stairwell reception hallway is flanked by the impressively proportioned east facing drawing and dining rooms, each having three full height shuttered sash windows, large fireplaces with period surrounds. There is a particularly beautiful decorative cornice in the drawing room. The dining room connects to the kitchen breakfast room, with its gas fired four oven Aga, fitted suite and island, granite worktops and integrated appliances. This leads to a conservatory entrance and the north driveway. Across the hall, the sitting room and study connect with double doors between. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and fitted glazed bookcase, with French doors to a south facing conservatory and the garden terrace. The study/play room has a large bay window with doors to the garden. A utility, with access to the oversized garage, and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom is east facing, with large sash windows, feature fireplace and a dressing room with fitted cupboards and a hidden entrance to the en suite bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms, one with balcony overlooking the river, served by a full-suite family bathroom and a separate shower room. There are five further second floor attic rooms and a large bathroom, incorporating a sauna.

    With separate access along a private driveway, the two bedroom cottage has been let on an Assured Shorthold basis. There is also opportunity of incorporation into the Hall, through a connecting door to the Hall.

    Wrought iron gates within the stone boundary wall, access the gravelled driveway, which splits to the east (front) of the house and to a turning circle on the north side of the house. The easterly lawns are bounded by mature trees to the north, but are open to the east providing a view towards the Conservation Village of Duddington. To the south of the lawns and house, the gardens bank down to the river, planted with shrubs and trees and a delightful Snowdrop path has been created.
