This four-bed detached family home offers an idyllic lifestyle for a buyer suited to country living with equestrian facilities to include a triple stable block and a circa acre paddock.
Rarely available with the facilities on offer situated within twelve miles of the historic Cathedral city of Lincoln on the outskirts of the village of Faldingworth providing stunning panoramic views over open land.
Originally a pair of traditional farm cottages which have over time merged to evolve into the superb detached country home that High House Farm Cottage is today.
Approached from a gated entrance which leads to the front brick and timber canopied entrance porch of the house.
The front formal entrance to the property opens into a well-proportioned dining entrance hall, set around a pine period style fire surround with cast insert and grate, the room opens to a vestibule with staircase to the first floor.
A latched door from the dining room opens into the kitchen which extends across the rear aspect of the house fitted with a range of cream high gloss base units and has a storage cupboard housing the central heating boiler. The kitchen opens up to provide a breakfasting area with a window overlooking the garden and stables beyond, where the owner enjoys morning tea and the view. Completing this practical area of the house is a cloakroom and a rear entrance utility room with polycarbonate roof, currently used as a useful boot room, ideal when coming in from a day's riding.
When relaxing the welcoming traditional sitting room is set around a chimney breast with a wood burning stove stood on a flagged hearth. The spacious room is finished with oak flooring and is full of charm and character, two windows allowing for ample natural light. A fully glazed door opens into the conservatory, thoughtfully added to ensure that the stunning open views can be enjoyed throughout the changing seasons.
The first floor is accessed from a spindled staircase to a landing with polished floorboards. This leads to the master forward-facing bedroom with chimney breast retaining the cast iron grate, the room benefits from an en-suite shower room. Adjacent to the master bedroom is a room that is a single bedroom used as a dressing room by the current owner. A family bathroom with three-piece suite, to include shower over bath serves two further forward-facing double bedrooms.
Timber double gates open onto the parking space, flanked by lawned garden to the front of the house with a low hedge boundary; to the roadside there are views across open land beyond.
The lawned garden reaches around the side of the house, to flow around to meet the rear garden. To the rear is an outside sitting area, with outside tap overlooking a lawned garden with ornamental pond and a selection of small trees, to include a mature apple tree.
To the rear of the garden is a quality timber stable block that sits on a drained concrete pad. The stable block consists of three stables, two 12' x 12' and one 16' x 12' that is currently used as a tack room and feed store. There is mains electricity and water to the stable block.
To the rear of the stable block is a hard standing that has separate access from the road with an all-weather surface that is ideal for parking a motorhome, caravan or horsebox. To the very rear of the property is a fully enclosed drained paddock approaching an acre with a mixture of electric fencing, post and rail fencing and auto-fill water trough, accessed via a metal gate.
The front entrance provides parking and leads to a timber storage shed with both enclosed and open fronted storage spaces, with power and lighting in the enclosed section. Next to this storage area is the oil tank for the central heating.
