A characterful Grade II-listed family home on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
This handsome, double-fronted property has a classically designed appearance with a pleasingly symmetrical double-fronted style and elevations of red brick. The property is Grade II listed and is believed to have been built in the late 18th century, with notable characteristics including large sash windows and a panelled front door with a glazing bar overlight. Internally there are wood floors, character light switches and exposed beams, with more modern additions such as a brick fireplace with wood-burning stove complementing the original charm of the building. Some of the rooms have been recently updated, including the ground floor utility room and cloakroom, the dining room, family bathroom and some of the bedrooms. While being a short distance from the centre of the village, the house and its gardens have a distinctly rural feel and a quiet, green outlook.
The accommodation extends to more than 1500 sq ft and is arranged over two floors, with the ground floor accessed via an inviting central hallway. From here, doors open on either side to a formal dining room and separate sitting room, with a spacious kitchen/breakfast room arranged galley-style to the rear. There is also an excellent utility room, ideal as a boot room and much desired by dog owners, and a ground floor shower room/cloakroom. Upstairs there are three good size bedrooms, including a main bedroom and a second generous double room which is currently arranged as a dressing room with fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom has an adjoining study, and would make an ideal children's room with an adjoining play room. There is also a family bath/shower room which features a freestanding bath and separate shower. There are also useful cellars on the lower ground floor.
A wide driveway leads between two parcels of lawn to a generous mixed hard standing and gravel parking area, where there is space for a number of cars in front of a detached garage which could possibly be used as a studio or office as it is fully insulated and finished to a high standard making it an ideal working space. There is also a useful shed. Most of the garden is arranged to the front of the house and is enclosed by mature trees and hedges. To the rear there is a good-size paved courtyard which is ideal for outdoor entertaining and is enclosed by a low picket fence. There is a high brick wall providing a high degree of privacy.

Hillcrest is a great property as it's a perfect mixture of feeling rural and quiet but also near to amenities. It also has a fantastic pub just around the cornerRoo Fisher
