About this property

  • Orchard House is a wonderfully unique and characterful detached home, built in the 1950s and designed by the architects Davis, Caldwell and Albarn, with distinctively Cape Dutch-style gable ends, which are typical of a South African homestead. The house is a landmark feature on Nettleham Road, and its charm and idiosyncrasies continue inside, where there are vibrant walls, an original fireplace and tall leaded-style windows offering lots of light. The house has been subject to an extensive programme of renovations and is beautifully presented, with a new kitchen featuring premium NEFF appliances and new bathrooms updated in 2019.

    The light and cheery accommodation has great flow, with most of the ground floor open plan making it well suited to informal entertaining at home. An inviting entrance hall opens to an L-shaped sitting room and dining room, which is open to a the spacious galley-style kitchen and its adjoining utility room. Also on the ground floor are two good-size double bedrooms, which pose great scope to be used as additional reception rooms or a study, if needed, and there is a shower room and WC. The two remaining bedrooms are on the first floor: one is the principal bedroom, with an en suite shower room, there is a further large double room and a family bathroom. The accommodation is versatile and would suit families, downsizers or couples looking for a bit of extra space.

    The house is set back from the road within well maintained mature gardens, fronted by a large brick-paved driveway which offers ample private parking and access to a detached single garage. The gardens wrap around the entire property and features many well-established trees such as apple and holly which add to the feeling of privacy, and places to sit and enjoy the many flowerbeds, lawned areas and quiet nooks, such as a timber summerhouse, and a portico over the front door.

This is one of my favourite uphill Lincoln houses, it sits way back from the road with loads of parking, enjoys great entertaining space and all so close to all that the cathedral quarter has to offer.
