5 bedroom house - detached
WITH ORIGINAL PARTS BELIEVED TO DATE FROM THE 1700s, THIS IS A TRULY DELIGHTFUL PERIOD FARMHOUSE PLEASANTLY SITUATED AT THE END OF A QUIET COUNTRY LANE ADJOINING OPEN FARMLAND.
The interior is heated by calor gas central heating and provides charming olde worlde accommodation including beamed ceilings and stripped timber floors. The charm of the interior is well matched by an equally attractive mature and mainly lawned garden which includes a variety of flowers, shrubs as well as climbing plants.
Dovecote Farmhouse will appeal not only to families seeking a pleasant away from it all country lifestyle but also young professionals looking for a country retreat and yet being within easy travelling distance Nottingham, Leicester and Newark as well as the M1 & A1. Grantham is only a short drive away and gives easy access (just over 1 hour) to London via the East Coast Train Line!
This prestigious property stands on a substantial plot that ensures everything you could wish for and, more importantly, a perfectly proportioned rear garden with plenty of privacy - perfect for the sun worshippers and those who enjoy al fresco dining during those balmy summer evenings or who enjoy lazy afternoons in the sunshine with a crossword in one hand and a cup of tea in the other (or a glass of Merlot!).
The floor plan clearly shows a larger than expected property from the initial photographs with numerous rooms which can be allocated for different uses.
This is one of those characterful sort of homes with all of the features often sought... with a feeling of space, space and more space and yet with the scope for further enhancement to one s own style and finish hence the price being set to allow for further upgrading!
Beyond the rear boundary is an area of land which the current owners have leased from The Crown Estate for a sum of £120.00 per annum.
