    About this property

    • The Old Station is so named because of the site's positioning on the former Ryhall and Belmesthorpe Railway Station, which served the Great Northern Railway network, accommodating both passenger and freight rolling stock. Currently, the edge of the platform and the crossing gate pillars is all that remains of it prior use. The site is nestled into the railway cutting creating views down the platform. The 4.8 acre site is surrounded by open fields and mature planting with river frontage onto the river Gwash to the south and only 2.8 miles from Stamford.

      Planning has been approved, with a large emphasis on environmental factors, for a three double bedroom property, with two en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom, a large open plan kitchen and living area, utility room and private reading and study spaces with views out onto the garden space surrounding.

      Ground source heating will efficiently heat the property and provide hot water. All thermal elements have been designed to surpass building regulations Model U-Values by an additional 15% to lower the running costs and carbon footprint of the house. A 'Mechanical Vent and Heat Recovery' would be utilized to maximize the efficiency of the heating and ventilation of the house.

      External materials for the house will come from local sources where possible; charred black timber cladding, larch cladding and aluminum curtain glazing are some of the exterior materials which have been approved.
