7 Bedroom Detached House Under Offer
An absolutely stunning Grade II listed home with professionally landscaped gardens and a separate annexe, all set in the heart of this extremely popular Cliff Village.
An early eighteenth century country house, offered onto the market for the first time in over 100 years, having been within the custodianship of the same family since 1919. This stunning, south-facing property also benefits from a converted stable block to create a self-contained annexe (semi-detached). There is a plethora of outside space, with the front garden having been designed by the locally renowned garden designer Guy Petheram in 2007.
Accommodation briefly includes a drawing room with gold moire silk wall-paper, sitting room, dining room, kitchen with walk-in china pantry, six double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms. The annexe consists of a double bedroom with a bathroom, together with a sitting room and kitchen.
Welbourn is a small and well located Cliff Village, found between the Cathedral City of Lincoln approximately 12 miles to the north and Grantham, a popular market town equidistant to the south. Newark and Sleaford are also around 11 miles from the village respectively. The proximity of the A17, A15, A46 and A1 trunk road permit well-connected rural living; Newark and Grantham both offer high-speed rail connection to London Kings Cross (latter 60 mins approx).
The village is serviced by a village store and Post Office, public house and village hall, alongside playing fields and a tennis court. Welbourn has a Church of England Primary School and good secondary education is available at the Sir William Robertson Academy. Nearby Leadenham enjoys a popular farm shop, a mere 2 minute drive from Welbourn.
Navenby is located a short drive away (as well as being easily accessed by a regular bus) which benefits from a mix of traditional period properties, pubs, library, restaurants, GP, shops, primary school and a variety of other amenities including a popular butchers, florist, pet-shop and bakery.
The local area provides a wide range of excellent and highly regarded schools. These include Lincoln Minster, The Priory and Carre's Grammar in Sleaford as well as The Kings' School and Kesteven & Grantham Girls' School in near-by Grantham. Kesteven and Sleaford High is a selective academy for girls. Sir William Robertson Academy is within walking distance and located just outside the village. Local primary schools include Brant Broughton (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and Leadenham. Highfields, in nearby Newark, is also a well regarded independent school and day nursery.
Offering charming and refined gardens throughout, this beautiful home is equally impressive externally as it is internally. The property is approached through a gated pillar entrance into a large gravel driveway with parking for multiple vehicles. There are multiple garage blocks with electric doors as well as an impressive summerhouse with its own paved garden, a superb space for dining and entertaining. As well as the aforementioned front garden, there is a long and extensive side-lawn with vegetable garden, including a well-established asparagus bed.
