Located in the heart of the popular Lincolnshire village of Keelby, this detached Grade II listed Georgian Manor house is an imposing residence reflective of a person of standing in the areas position in the community.
Approached from a horse shoe driveway with wrought iron gated entrances which lead onto a gravel laid drive bordered by superb landscaped gardens to the formal front entrance and to the side parking area. A centrally located entrance door opens into the reception hall with spindled staircase which curves around to the first-floor galleried landing. Two formal rooms flank the hallway the first in an elegant drawing room centred around a fantastic marble fire surround with dual aspect sash windows and polished wood floors. The second room is a comfortable sitting room with a light marble fire surround with sash windows to the front aspect. To the side of the property a brick built porchway gives access into an area of the property which has provided annex accommodation in the past and consists of a sitting room centred on a period style fire surround looking onto the front garden, utility room which could convert to a Kitchenette if required and a double bedroom and shower room. This area of the house is perfect for an elderly relative or to provide a younger member of the family an opportunity to gain a level of independent living. An entrance vestibule from the porchway leads to the kitchen and the second half of the centrally located hall where a second staircase leads to a separate section of the first-floor accommodation. The country style kitchen is fitted in a range of bespoke solid oak kitchen cabinets with granite work surfaces with terracotta tiled flooring and an oak surround to a recessed space houses an Aga stove. There is ample space for a family breakfast table and a cupboard opens up to reveal what was once the servants' staircase. The third formal reception room is a fantastic dining room with double doors opening out onto a paved patio, the room is finished in three quarter height panelling with concealed cupboard doors which also has a period wood fire surround integrated into the panelling. Two step ways one from the dining room and another from the hallway lead down to a cellar with a small wine store which has recently undergone a scheme of refurbishment to create a superb leisure room with light oak flooring power and light. There are also double doors to an external step way to the garden from the cellar this really would lend itself to a multitude of uses to include a gymnasium, cinema room or teenage retreat or perhaps an elaborate wine cellar which befits a property with such grand origins. Practicalities are served with the inclusion of a downstairs shower room with three-piece suite and an adjacent utility room. A storage space/boot room which has a doorway into the sitting room most likely for staff to be able to access the reception room discreetly. The first floor is divided into two separate areas with the master suite having access to both sections. The front formal side of the property has a superb return staircase with polished handrail and a curved wall which leads onto a galleried landing accessing two bedrooms both with period fire surrounds. The master suite consists of a double bedroom with a spacious dressing room which in turn opens to the modern wet room style en-suite. To the second landing there are two further bedrooms, both with period fire surrounds. The second bedrooms has a doorway to a small landing with storage cupboard and a latched door which opens into the historic servants quarters, evidence of which remains with a hatched access to the disused servants' staircase to the kitchen and a small period fire surround, the room is in need of refurbishment and currently used as a storage area. A doorway from this second landing also leads to an attic/store space and a doorway opens to step down into a family bathroom.
