About this property

  • A detached south facing converted school, of 1897, Birch House offers well-appointed accommodation, which has a lovely flow and the versatility of an en suite annex, home office or children's games room above the detached double garage. Birch House occupies a discreet setting in the centre of a popular village, alongside the parish church and with views from the mature gardens over open countryside.

    The ground floor of the house is largely oak floored, whilst the house is double glazed throughout, with access, or views, from all the principal rooms to the garden and neighbouring countryside. The entrance porch and hallway access the three reception rooms: the dining room, study and elegant sitting room, as well as a cloaks/W.C. and kitchen.

    The sitting room is the full width of the house. It has French doors to the garden, a fireplace with wood burning stove, and offers access to a south facing conservatory/garden room. At the other end of the house, the kitchen/breakfast room is also full width, with French doors to the garden, as well as an adjoining utility/boot room. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke shaker suite, with integrated appliances, electric Rangemaster and granite and oak worktops.

    The walled gardens are a delight, laid out to the rear of the house and with views across an attractive valley to woodland. A wide stone flagged dining terrace runs the full length of the house, accessed from the conservatory, sitting room and kitchen, providing an ideal setting for al fresco eating and summer drinks. Steps descend from the terrace to the lawn, which is bordered by well stocked flowering and shrub borders.

This property is in a wonderful setting, with beautiful views across countryside. The separate accommodation above the garages is a great asset and all within easy reach of Bourne and Stamford.
