Located in the desirable Lincolnshire Low Wold conservation village of Saxby all Saints, this charming three bedroomed property offering potential for four is set in grounds of circa 1.4 acres, includes rarely available home equestrian facilities in a stunning location.
Retaining much of the original character from the late 18th century country cottage at its heart with two modern extensions to evolve into the spacious family country residence that it is today.
A half-glazed entrance door opens into a large orangery style entrance hall with limestone flooring.
Opposite the entrance are double doors which open into the original cottage. Firstly, a snug room (currently used as a home study), which is set around a superb period rose marble fireplace with open grate set on a flagged hearth and an exposed beamed ceiling. Then a door leads into the dining room with an abundance of period character and charm to include beamed ceiling, a chimney breast inset fire place with wood burning stove with beamed mantle over. The staircase to the first floor is also located in this room.
Each of the extensions then forms a wing to the original 18th century cottage.
The first wing has terracotta floor tiling with underfloor heating throughout. It begins with a lobby area. Adjoining this is a ground floor shower room with traditional suite. Next is the kitchen where the feeling of light and space is enhanced by a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and trusses. It is fitted with Smallbone solid wood cabinets in a mellow cream colour with slate work tops and a range of integrated appliances; very much in a country cottage styling, there is space for a breakfast table.
Then a door opens from the kitchen into the sitting room which is set around a feature stone fireplace with multi fuel burning stove. Again, the feeling of light and space in this well-proportioned room is enhanced by the vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and trusses. Double doors open into a large conservatory which is used as a summer dining/entertaining space by the current owner to take advantage of the fabulous views over the stunning garden, paddocks and open land beyond. Another set of double doors open out to give access to the rear patio which is perfect for pre-dinner drinks.
The other wing comprises, on the ground floor, a triple aspect ground floor bedroom with a period wooden fireplace and an open accessed en-suite shower room with traditional suite to include a high flush w.c. There is also a utility room with fitted units, space for white goods and a Belfast sink and central heating boiler.
On the first floor the landing leads to a bedroom with built in storage cupboard and a bathroom with a roll-top bath with marble surround and wood panelled side. A doorway from the landing space opens into a fantastic dual aspect dressing room with fitted wardrobes (which could be converted to a further bedroom) and is open plan into the spacious master bedroom, with another vaulted ceiling and a traditional vanity housed sink unit.
The façade of the property that faces the roadside is the first hint of this charm and character within. Access is through double timber electronically operated gates, or the matching pedestrian gate, both of which open onto a gravel laid parking area with shrub filled borders; where there is space for several vehicles (and horsebox). A flagged path leads to the formal entrance of the property, which faces away from the roadside, and continues around to the paved patio which looks over the garden. The stunning family garden has been carefully and thoughtfully designed. A low level box hedging parterre flows around the patio area, with established trees, rose bushes and other flowering plants within. Gravelled laid walkways through the parterre open out to the lawned garden with deep filled borders and seating areas, which include a large Amdega wooden gazebo with cedar tiled roof ? a relaxing spot for a good book looking out over the garden.
Trees provide discreet screening to equestrian facilities which include a substantial quality timber stable block on a concrete base. This 9-metre double stable, with twin gated access and rubber wall and floor matting, and a removable central partition, also benefits from having a sheltered frontal overhang and a concrete hardstanding immediately adjacent to the stables. Built into the stable block is a tack room/food store. The stables and tack room have power, light and running water. Immediately to the side of the stable block is a small open fronted barn ideal for hay storage. On the other side of the stable block are two, three-sided timber composters which are ideal for composting manure and vegetation.
Beyond the formal gardens is the paddock area which has been divided into three sections, creating a larger, a smaller and a round pen/lunging area. The paddocks are fully post and rail fenced, with gated access and both benefit from the addition of running water. The round pen, again is fully post and railed and has a wood chip and carpet fibre surface. The equestrian facilities can only be accessed via the driveway which offers additional security for both animals and equipment.
