    About this property

    • The detached and unlisted house is set back within a landscaped garden of about 0.22 of an acre and has been comprehensively refurbished by the current owners, who have electrically rewired the house, installed new central heating and installed the double glazed windows, alongside the renewal of the kitchen, bath and shower rooms over the past sixteen years.

      The front door opens into a wide bamboo floored entrance stairwell hallway, which leads through to the kitchen at the rear of the house, past the sitting and dining rooms that line the frontage of the house.

      The sitting and dining rooms both benefit from high ceilings, elegantly proportioned and symmetrical, dual-aspect rooms, with tall windows affording attractive views of gardens. The sitting and dining rooms both have the same eco bamboo flooring as the hallway. The sitting room has an open fireplace and French doors that open to one of the garden's terraces.

      The kitchen is fitted with an extensive suite, with plenty of storage and preparation space, incorporating integrated larder fridge and dishwasher, as well as a Stoves range cooker. The kitchen has ample room for a table and has access to the garden's sunken rear south facing terrace, which is ideal for BBQs.

      Adjoining the kitchen, the snug has been an office and a playroom in the past and, with the cloakroom, could be a ground floor/occasional bedroom. A utility/boot room, also with garden access, completes the ground floor accommodation.

      At first floor, a wide and inviting landing, with a large window with views to rising farmland, this provides access to the three double bedrooms and the full-suite family bathroom. The principal bedroom is dual-aspect, bamboo floored, with a dressing area, with fitted wardrobes, and modern en suite shower room. Double bedroom two is also dual-aspect, this and bedroom three are served by the modern family bathroom, fitted with a three piece suite with shower over the bath.

      The house is approached by foot from the Colsterworth Road, whilst the property's gated private parking and garaging is accessed from Lord's Lane. The gardens are south-westerly orientated and rise gently to the parking. They are arranged with various lawns, interspersed by deep flowering and shrub borders, and have been designed to maximise the sense and feel of privacy, coupled with showcasing the views across the valley to the south east. The gardens are interspersed by stone, gravel and paved terraces, which are lovely spaces from which to entertain and track the sun and enjoy the ambience of the setting.

    I love the feel and practicality of this house. The south-west orientation of the house fits beautifully within the garden and plot, it leaves you wanting to stay a while.
