    • Set in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB on the edge of this sought after village, Ashwood House is a substantial and extensive modern country home which is very well presented, built in a classic double-fronted style with attractive red brick elevations and a pretty arched porch. With pastoral views, this family home is beautifully appointed to a high standard, offering spacious rooms of commendable proportions with the charm of character of exposed stone, vaulted ceilings and oak beams that give a rustic feel. The accommodation is particularly well suited to entertaining at home, with three reception spaces opening off a wonderful entrance hall with a feature staircase leading to a galleried landing. Two further receptions rooms connect with the impressive kitchen/sitting room making it ideal for modern family life, while a study and snooker room are notable additions. Outside there are capacious grounds including a considerable lawned garden with an attractive brick built summer house adjoining neighbouring fields.

      The extensive living accommodation extends to over 4,700 sq ft, with generous proportions and a natural flow throughout. The entrance hall on the ground floor leads to a 28ft triple aspect sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and a family room with a log burner. Both have French doors to the gardens, while a dining room is versatile to your needs. Across a central hallway, a further dining room, garden room and kitchen/sitting room combine to create a magnificent open plan and light entertaining space with Velux roof windows, exposed oak beams and vaulted ceilings with an array of integrated kitchen appliances, a feature central breakfast island with granite work top and Rangemaster cooker. A stunning double height brick fireplace dominates the design with internal bi-fold and double doors. There is also a modern study and a useful utility room with a door to the outside. Upstairs, the wide galleried landing unfolds onto five double bedrooms. A principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom, whilst the others share a family bathroom. Accessed via a secondary staircase, there is a considerable double aspect snooker room.

      Ashwood House is set back from the road behind an attractive lawned front garden with sweeping gravel driveway which provides ample parking and in turn leads to an integral double garage with electronically operated sectional shutter door. The garaging benefits from a WC and opens into the adjoining boiler room. Encompassed by hedging and fencing, the gardens wrap-around the side of the house to the rear, where there is an expansive lawn and landscaped terracing ideal for al fresco dining. Backing on to open countryside, the lawn stretches down to a first class brick built summer house with its own patio. A storage shed sits discreetly behind hidden from view.
