This imposing Victorian Rectory is a spectacular private residence set in a stunning secluded location with fabulous views over the Lincolnshire Wolds on the edge of the most highly sought-after village of Elsham.
A gated entrance leads onto a driveway which opens to a broad reception parking area which sweeps around two aspects of the property flanked by deep lawned gardens with mature trees and shrubbery providing a high level of seclusion.
Built in a traditional style using red brick which typifies the Victorian era, the grandeur of this property is immediately apparent from the external facade. The driveway firstly leads to the less formal side entrance of the house and around to the front formal arched entrance door.
To the main entrance an initial porchway opens via double doors into a further vestibule which has period tiling and looks onto the front lawned garden which steps up via a broad archway into a spacious main reception hall with a period fireplace and wood burning stove. A spectacular return staircase leads up to the galleried landing which looks over the formal reception area. The first formal reception room is an elegant relaxing drawing room set around a marble fire surround with open grate with period shuttered sash windows which look onto the lawned garden and stunning views beyond. The second reception room is a sophisticated dining room perfect for entertaining with a dual aspect and a period style fire surround with open grate. A comfortable sitting room is used on a daily basis as a relaxing family room with twin sash shuttered windows and a wooden fire surround with an electric stove.
Leading off the main reception hall is an archway to an inner lobby to the informal side entrance with a second staircase adjacent to the kitchen indicative of days gone by in order for staff to reach the working side of the house and have discreet access to the first floor aswell as to the cellar below. The spacious cellar has lighting and power there is a separate door to a wine store, this perfect storage space also has a window for ventilation.

The principal return staircase leads to an impressive galleried landing with ceiling window panel allowing for natural light to cascade throughout the whole reception and staircase area.
A chandelier light point suspends down into the main hallway, to the main landing there are two double bedrooms; the first being a master bedroom which has four panelled windows in a bay formation which provides the most stunning panoramic views to wake up to in a morning. This spacious master suite opens from the bedroom area via an archway into a dressing room which in turn gives access into the master en-suite which is centred around an oval shaped free-standing bath.
The second double bedroom is immediately adjacent to the master suite which has a dual aspect over the front and side lawns with fitted cupboards/wardrobes and a door into en-suite bathroom. To the main part of the landing there is a fitted laundry storage cupboard and a family shower room. A door from the main landing steps down into the area of the first floor which would have historically been the less formal side of the house, where the second staircase is and two double bedrooms, one with a Victorian fireplace. This staircase continues to the second floor.
