About this property

  • An attractive grade II listed house, of circa 1720, Spinney Farm House offers spacious accommodation over three floors, that retain the grace, proportions and features of the era.

    The main house is complimented by useful outbuildings, which currently incorporate an office suite and a two bedroom ancillary cottage. Accessed through double gates and with generous parking, the gardens are bounded by mature trees and incorporate extensive terraces and lawns, extending to about two thirds of an acre.

    This property offers symmetrical principal rooms with space and separation for families and for entertaining, with good connectivity to the gardens. The front doors enters a wide oak floor entrance hallway, traditionally flanked by the sitting and dining rooms and leads through the house to a spacious garden room with two sets of French doors to the garden. The impressive drawing room has a large inglenook fireplace, whilst the spacious kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive suite under granite work surfaces, with integrated appliance, four-oven Aga and separate hob and oven. It also has bi-folding doors to the garden. A boot room and utility, along with a secondary staircase wrap around the western elevation, linking to garden and drawing rooms.

    The five bedrooms and the full suite family bathroom, complete with roll-topped claw footed bath and separate shower, are accessed from the main first floor landing. The principal bedroom also has a fitted dressing room and en suite shower room. Bedroom two is also accessed from the secondary staircase, across the landing from which is bedroom three, with a second en suite shower room.

    Each staircase rises to a separate second floor level. From the main landing, the staircase rises to a landing area, with a stripped wooden floor double bedroom and vaulted second family shower room, whilst the secondary staircase rises to a huge attic bedroom, currently used as a children's games and TV room.

    Annex Cottage
    A charming two storey brick and pantile cottage lies across the garden's terrace to the east of the house and is ideal for relatives, guests or letting. With a ground floor kitchen and linked dining and sitting rooms, there are two interconnecting first floor bedrooms and bathroom.

    Office & outbuilding Range
    A versatile single storey brick outbuilding range forms the southern boundary of the property, which currently incorporates the vendor's large office suite, with adjoining garage and implement stores.

    Spinney Farmhouse is approached through electric wrought iron gates to an extensive gravelled turning sweep to the north of the house. This is a fabulous lifestyle property.

    Lawned gardens, with mature tree lined boundaries, extend principally to the north and the east of the house, with an extensive stone and paved flagged terrace between the house and cottage, offering sheltered alfresco outdoor dining and entertaining. The gardens extend to a around two thirds of an acre. They widen to the rear of the cottage, where there are extensive lawns and an outdoor swimming pool (the swimming pool area has a covenant on it - further information is available from the agents).

I think that this is a marvellous home and lifestyle property – I love the versatility of this house, with its ancillary cottage for guests, and mature gardens, all in an attractive rural setting convenient for the market town of Bourne and with mainline rail services at Grantham within 20 miles.
