    About this property

    • Situated in a popular position for Lincoln commuters is this detached home with extensive outbuildings and an attached one bedroom annexe, offering fantastic potential for further development, subject to necessary consents. The 2243 sq ft home was built in the 1930s and has been improved over the years, including an extended garage with new roller door, two new bathrooms, a Rayburn stove and new reproduction cast iron radiators. Externally there are a number of useful outbuildings, including a garage and a long block of storage rooms, office and workshops which presented great scope for conversion, subject to necessary consents. The house is situated on a generous plot with plenty of off-road parking and a generous garden to the rear. There are lovely views to the front over open countryside and to the rear over the lakes of Whisby Nature Reserve.

      The main house is very well presented with a high standard of décor, featuring a contemporary kitchen open plan to a sociable dining area, a lovely sitting room with wood-burning stove and a study, which could equally be used as a snug. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one of which is en suite, plus a fantastic principal suite upstairs with dressing room and bath/shower room with freestanding bath. The house has many sought after touches, including underfloor heating in the bathrooms, a utility room that's perfect for storing laundry machines or drying muddy dogs after walks, plus an array of character features such as Minton tiles, stained glass detailing and a mahogany newel post in the main entrance. To the rear of the house there is an attached annexe, well suited as a dependence for grandparents or older children.

      The property is set within a generous plot of about 0.49 of an acre, with a generously sized gravel driveway to the front providing space for several cars, as well as access to the garage at the rear. Behind the garage there is a recently reroofed stable block housing workshops, an office and storage, with a separate container shed ideal for green-fingered gardeners. The garden is mostly lawned and features an array of mature trees and shrubs, plus raised borders for growing vegetables and a large terrace for garden furniture.

    This is a very versatile property which benefits from the self-contained annexe which could suit a multi-generation family or just be incorporated in the main house. I especially like the large garden backs onto a picturesque nature reserve which is perfect for dog walking
