Fine & Country Northern Lincolnshire present this traditional style Grade II Listed farmhouse which is thought to date back to the 1700's and retains many of the original outbuildings including a two-storey barn and a barn with a stable block.
Situated in the older part of this popular Lincolnshire Wold village and enjoying rear aspect open countryside views, the property is full of rustic charm and character with period features. A centrally located front door typifying Georgian styling opens into an entrance hall which is flanked by two adjacent reception rooms. The first is a traditional styled sitting room with Adam style fireplace with open grate and dual aspect Georgian style sash windows. The second reception room is ideally suited to provide a formal dining room. The entrance hall also gives access through a broad archway to an L-shaped hallway which is where the property has been extended historically. A latched door to a pantry with shelving leads through to the kitchen. The farmhouse style kitchen is fitted with a variety of wood cabinets, cooker, hob and dishwasher. Georgian style windows look out onto the rear garden and there is a further external door leading outside. A small utility area to the side of the kitchen retains the original scullery maids' steps to sleeping quarters above, quite a common arrangement in traditional farmhouses. From the kitchen a latched door opens into a cosy beamed second sitting room, which also works well as a breakfast room. This room also has twin Georgian style windows to the side aspect. Approached from the hallway is a storage room which was in days gone by the meat store/cold room, evidence of which is still visible with meat hooks suspended from the ceiling and now provides a useful store room. To complete the ground floor, a garden room overlooks the patio, which the vendor informs us in the past has been used as a children's play room and more recently as a craft room. The inner hallway ends with a downstairs cloakroom and toilet. Located from the ground floor entrance hall a staircase leads to the first-floor galleried landing with traditional balustrade. The landing accesses firstly two front facing bedrooms, one of which still retains a traditional cast fireplace with open grate and a fitted wardrobe. A broad archway from the landing opens to two further bedrooms which look out onto the side and rear aspect. One of these has a doorway opening into a deep storage space which originally provided access to the maids' staircase down to the kitchen (this is presently inaccessible). Arranged between these two rear bedrooms is a bathroom with a three-piece suite and shower.
