4 Bedroom Detached House Under Offer
A stunning masterpiece of architecture by the renowned William Burn, this beautiful former school house offers a rare opportunity to acquire a residence full of character with beautiful gardens and located within minutes of both the A1 and Grantham Station (London Kings Cross 1 hour).
A stunning Grade II listed country house, set in the heart of this highly sought-after, 'Chocolate-Box' village and offering a beautifully presented family home with an abundance of period features and character throughout. The property was designed by the renowned William Burn, the highly reputable architect known locally for undertaking some of the most prominent residences in the East Midlands including Harlaxton Manor, Revesby Abbey, Rauceby Hall and, of course, Stoke Rochford Hall. Accommodation briefly includes a grand dining hall, formal lounge, family room, kitchen and separate utility, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property also enjoys a detached home-office.
Stoke Rochford is an attractive small village six miles south of Grantham. It was traditionally the estate village to Rochford Hall, an ancestral home, and now best known for its conversion to a country house hotel and golf course.
Grantham is a traditional Lincolnshire market town with excellent travel connections, with London Kings Cross around 1hr journey by high speed train, and access to the A1 trunk road.
The town has its own multiplex cinema and benefits from an arts centre and theatre, along with an excellent leisure centre with facilities for swimming, fitness training and racquet sports. Nearby, the 17th Century Belton House offers beautiful grounds, as well as being home to the superb Belton Park Golf Club where visitors and members are offered 27 challenging holes. Residents will delight in the charming selection of tea rooms, cafés, restaurants and traditional inn-keeper style pubs, typical of a vibrant market town such as this one. The shopping centre provides an intriguing mix of independent stores and family-run boutiques, alongside several major high street names and a good range of supermarkets. A designer outlet is under construction and is due to open in 2023.
Grantham is well-regarded for the quality of its local schools, which regularly achieve some of the best academic results in the area. Both community and independent schools are available for children of all ages, and the town’s two grammar schools, Kesteven and Grantham Girls School and The King’s Grammar School, are in particularly high demand.
