About this property

  • Red Willows is a three/four bedroom detached bungalow, set in a good-size elevated plot, bordering open countryside. A rural location, situated on the edge of the popular village of Reepham, and yet only approximately four miles north east of the city of Lincoln.

    A gated entrance opens to a block-paved driveway which runs alongside the property to the attractive outbuilding at the rear, which is currently set up as stables and a garage but offers fantastic scope for conversion (subject to necessary consents).

    The garden wraps around the other three sides of the house and is laid to lawn, with a number of mature trees and a paved terrace.

    The house is attractively presented with modern elements incorporated into a traditional décor scheme, including a farmhouse-style kitchen with its range cooker and lots of storage, with space for a table for informal family meals. The reception rooms are numerous and provide excellent versatility, a sun room with glazing on two sides for enjoying views of the garden, a dining room, open plan to the barn room, with its cosy space for relaxing and a formal living room at the front of the house which could be used as an additional bedroom.

    The bedrooms are all a good size, with room for double beds. The principal bedroom has a wall of built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, while the other bedrooms share a family shower room. There's a utility room for laundry machines and a separate entrance for muddy dog walks which leads out to the garden.

    The property has been subject to a number of improvements over the years, including a new boiler and central heating, an extension with a new en suite bathroom, the addition of a utility room and new flooring and underfloor heating in the bathrooms and hall. Most notable is the stunning barn room, the perfect space for family gatherings which is warmed by underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove, and has vaulted ceiling with exposed timber trusses.

This charming bungalow ticks so many boxes and enjoys a lovely elevated position with views across fields towards the Wolds, I especially like the barn room with its exposed beams and the log burner
