to evolve into the immaculately presented family home that it is today. Located on the fringe of the Lincolnshire Wolds in the picturesque village of Searby, within the catchment area for the highly sought after Caistor Grammar school.

OUTSIDE Discreetly positioned beyond a tall mixed hedge and accessed via a pair of broad electric timber gates. The curved block paved driveway which is shaded by two superb willow trees and bordered by lawned gardens to both sides, opens onto an additional tarmac turning and parking area that gives access to both the double electric garage and the stables/workshop building. Immediately to the front of the property are the picturesque formal gardens with deep filled edges and curved shaped lawned areas with seasonal floral beds. This more formal garden has lawned walkways that lead to the side gardens. To the rear/side of the property is an additional raised garden area with a stunning shrub bed that opens onto a further lawned area to the rear of the garage where there are two superb colourful spring blossom trees that create a covered walkway through to the stunning parkland style gardens that are a true credit with its tall beech hedge, gravelled walkways and three colourful small apple trees providing a feeling of tranquillity that many gardens struggle to offer and a stunning wooded area with a selection of smaller deciduous and evergreen trees, mixed with hollies and in the spring season an abundance of colourful bluebells. Two further areas, one of which is a beech hedge lined walkway with a selection of silver birch trees and to the final areas there is a small orchard with soft fruit beds, fruit trees, raised vegetable gardens and an aluminium greenhouse. This stunning garden offers so many varied areas creating what has to be described as one of the nicest private gardens in the area. The garage is a double brick-built garage with tiled roof, twin electrically operated up and over doors and windows to both sides. The stable/workshop area with clay pantiled roof, stable type door, double access door would lend itself perfectly for a home office, annex or guest accommodation, subject to local planning approval. To the side of the property and accessed externally is the gardens w.c, which also houses the gas central heating boiler.
