    About this property

    • This truly unique home is the ultimate space for entertaining and is a vision of glass and aluminium adjoining the neighbouring Grade II-listed West Hill House, now converted into individual townhouses and apartments. The elevated property has been designed in an ultra-modern style with glazing on three sides; this affords magnificent views over Uphill Lincoln and beyond from Motherby Hill, and further allows excellent natural light to radiate throughout the home. Arranged over three floors, the substantial accommodation has a versatile and imaginative layout that lends itself well to entertaining friends and family at home: the current owners have a cinema room with an adjoining space for a hot tub on the top floor, a number of reception rooms of generous proportions ideal for large gatherings and a collection of ‘snug' spaces which could be repurposed as individual bedrooms if required. Despite the expanse of glass, the house feels warm and cosy with wood burning stoves in many of the reception rooms. The interiors are appointed to a high standard feature a wealth of desirable modern conveniences including handmade kitchen units with granite work surfaces, bifold doors, air conditioning and underfloor heating. The property also benefits from use of the communal gardens and parking.

      The 3000 sq ft home is divided over three floors: on the ground floor, a reception room opens to two double bedrooms, both with en suite facilities and a snug/fourth bedroom which leads through to a useful utility room. On the first floor there are three expansive reception spaces (the garden room doubles as bedroom three) plus a kitchen, with an additional study, a further snug area and a cloakroom with WC. The second floor houses a cinema room and room with a hot tub.

      The property shares the same landscaped communal gardens as the adjoining Grade II-listed conversion, and further benefits from an undercroft car park and an integrated garage which is currently used as a gym with sauna. There is additional off-street parking on a gated gravel driveway.
