Impressive Grade II listed five bedroom family house with magnificent tower set in over two acres of grounds.
Saltfleetby House is an impressive Grade II listed five bedroom family house which dates back to the early nineteenth century. The property sits in established gardens with a magnificent restored Grade II listed folly offering three hundred and sixty degree far-reaching views across open countryside.
In more detail, the accommodation comprises entrance hall with an attractive staircase mentioned in the Lincolnshire volume of Pevsner's Buildings of England. The double aspect reception room has an open fire and double doors leading on to the garden. The dining room also enjoys an open fire within a tiled Frosterley marble fireplace, original part panelled walls and stripped wooden floor. In the centre of the house is a double aspect family room complete with Charnwood log burner, double doors which open onto the garden, and access to the utility area and luxuriously appointed shower room. Also off the family room is a breakfast room and a double aspect music room. A door leads to the triple aspect kitchen/dining room, which has a good range of fitted wall and base units with oak block worktops and integral appliances, a breakfast bar, and double doors which open onto the garden via a covered veranda.
The first floor has two large west facing bedrooms and two double bedrooms in the middle of the house, one of which has a separate dressing room. There is a family bathroom and a large dual-aspect guest bedroom at the rear of the property.
Outside, the property has a Cotswold stone driveway with parking for a number of vehicles, and access to a single garage. The extensive gardens and grounds are mostly laid to lawn, with woodland and shrubbery, and protected on all sides by mature trees.
The unique folly, or prospect tower, mentioned by Pevsner, has been restored during the last two decades and has wooden staircases, separate floors and an octagonal fully-glazed viewing gallery. A modern detached building in the grounds with covered sun-deck is fully equipped with power, lighting and superfast fibre broadband. It is constructed to current building regulations and is at present a home office, but could be used for a variety of other purposes.

I especially like the tower which is a very unusual garden feature and offers unique views by day and night. The family room is also a bit special with its log burner and the way it sits in the middle of the house. My favourite bit has to be the log cabin which is tucked away in the garden and makes a brilliant office or potentially an annexe subject to the necessary consents.Roo Fisher
