Impressive stone grade-II listed 6/7-bed country home with mature gardens in sought after village.
Situated at the heart of the much sought-after village of Waddington just four miles south of Lincoln, this substantial Grade-II listed residence was originally constructed in 1650 and retains its period grandeur due to a wealth of original features, including exposed beams, sash windows, intricate coving and dado rails. The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout and offers a great deal of versatility with elegant high-ceilinged rooms and traditional décor that is sympathetic yet neutral, allowing for a new buyer to add their personal stamp while honouring the character of this unique home. The detached property sits in extensive and well-maintained grounds of about 0.69 of an acre including a large garage arranged across two floors which has great potential to be converted into ancillary accommodation, ideal for multi-generational living or as an income generator (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends to 4731 sq ft with a cellar for storage. Access is via a grand entrance hall leading through to a sitting room with log burning stove, formal dining room, study/library, private office and 32ft games room/gym. The open plan John Gresham kitchen/breakfast room is a sociable space complete with appealing bespoke units, Quooker instant hot water tap and a vast central island with built-in wine-fridge. From here is the wonderful adjoining orangery with underfloor heating and tall vaulted glass ceiling affording excellent natural light with French doors out to a private courtyard garden.
A galleried first floor landing leads to five bedrooms, one of which is currently being utilised as a dressing room and two separate family bathrooms. On the second floor are two further impressive bedrooms and an additional bathroom, making an ideal space for older children or visiting guests.
Waddington House is tucked away down a peaceful village road approached over a gated gravel courtyard providing ample parking for a number of vehicles with access to a double garage, separate garden store and electric vehicle charging point. The rear gardens are a particular feature and enjoy a favourable southerly aspect, set within extensive and private grounds with beautifully maintained lawned areas interspersed with a variety of herbaceous flowers, shrubs and mature trees, a summer house and greenhouse. A private courtyard seating area with a covered gazebo provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining.

This is a gorgeous stone house set on a generous south facing plot, I especially like the way the kitchen breakfast room flows into the beautiful orangeryRoo FisherProperty agent
