    About this property

    • A handsome, detached family home in a generous plot with attractive, panoramic, rural views in the popular village of Thimbleby, located approximately one mile from Horncastle. The property was originally built in the 19th century and has been gradually expanded by subsequent owners to include two additional reception rooms, with deep bay windows, two additional bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. Internally the accommodation is presented in country style décor.

      The house is very spacious and extends to over 2220 sq ft with generous proportions throughout. The entrance hall on the ground floor leads to a well-appointed sitting room with a large bay window and wood burning stove within an attractive Adam fireplace. Double doors open from the sitting room to a formal dining room. Doors from the hall also lead to a second reception room with a deep bay window and attractive fireplace with stove, a family bathroom and a fully fitted contemporary kitchen with an Aga cooker and fitted dish washer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room housing the oil boiler and a back lobby leading to a boot room and the back door to the outside. Upstairs, the landing provides access to the principal bedroom, which benefits from an ensuite shower room and dressing room, a second double bedroom, a third triple bedroom and a further single bedroom or study. These have access from the landing to a family bathroom with a corner bath and separate shower cubicle.

      The property is situated on a pleasant village road fronted by an attractive lawned garden with a good sized gravel driveway to the side with access to a double car port and workshop. Could be suitable for additional accommodation (subject to any necessary consents). The rear is a beautifully designed, south facing, rear garden including a large lawn with well stocked flower beds, surrounded by mature trees and hedging with a paved patio area.
