    About this property

    • Vibrant, beautifully appointed and offering masses of character, this stunning double-fronted Victorian townhouse is a prime example of the very hard to come by homes that face directly onto the picturesque open green space of Lincoln Arboretum. The house couldn't be in a better position, on the corner looking directly at the greenery, with a view of the cathedral visible through the trees with All Saints Church to the east. The house is owned by an artist and as such the interiors have been sympathetically and attractively decorated, whilst keeping many of the original character details, such as fireplaces, wood floors and stained glass windows. Further highlights include a farmhouse-style kitchen with Rayburn range stove, contemporary bathrooms and high ceilings. Over the years the house has been subject to a variety of improvements, including sash window renovations, a new roof, bathrooms and reproduction cast iron radiators.

      This substantial home offers more than 3000 sq ft of space over three floors, and is configured in such a way that it offers huge potential for families, with great scope to add an annexe if desired (subject to the necessary consents). The ground floor space is wonderfully bright, airy and spacious, affording three vast reception rooms at the front which provide a wealth of space for big family gatherings. The two rooms at the front are perfect for hosting, there is also a cloakroom with WC. From the homely, farmhouse-style kitchen the accommodation is more informal, including a garden room opening to the outside space at the rear, a pantry, utility room and workshop. The first floor has been remodelled to facilitate an artist's studio, where two bedrooms have been knocked through to create a fantastic open plan space with views to the north and south. There are three bedrooms on the first floor plus a shower room, with the remaining two bedrooms (one en suite), an office and walk-in wardrobe on the second floor.

      The property benefits from the rare addition of a garage, situated to the rear and accessed from Eastbourne Street. The garage was extended and reroofed in 2023, with a new remotely-operated roller shutter door added. There is ample on-street parking available locally. To the rear of the house there is a low-maintenance south-facing town garden with raised flowerbeds and space to sit and enjoy the good weather days.

    This is a wonderful and spacious family house with fabulous views over the Arboretum, I especially like the first floor drawing room which is currently used as an artist studio with stripped wood floors and a bay window overlooking the park
