A fascinating individual character conversion offering a wealth of features as well as a sprawling level of accommodation, including up to 5 bedrooms, 4 to the first floor serviced by a modern bathroom and leading off a stunning galleried landing.
The fifth bedroom is situated on the ground floor and is a generous size, which could be utilised for a variety of purposes including a potential sixth reception room or possibly annexe-style facilities for families with dependent relatives.
Every room offers its own unique elements, the majority with exposed timbers and exposed brick elevations, the main sitting room having stunning vaulted ceiling with exposed king post and truss.
The gardens are a delightful feature of the property with enclosed lawned garden to the front with adjacent driveway providing ample parking and which continues through a pair of field gates at the side onto a further paved area.

Attached to the property is a brick and pantiled open fronted former stable which has retained much of its original character with pitched ceiling and exposed timbers, original hay rack and brick feeding trough. Currently providing useful workshop space but subject to necessary consents, could offer scope to expand the accommodation further.
Internally the accommodation comprises initial entrance hall with bespoke timber staircase rising to a galleried landing, sitting room, separate dining room, snug/family room, study, ground floor bedroom, farmhouse style dining kitchen, wet room and utility. To the first floor there are four bedrooms and bathroom.
The property has recently benefitted from an upgraded oil fired central heating system as well as relatively neutral decoration throughout.
Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate with unique well proportioned home, located within this pretty un-spoilt edge of Vale village.

The village is well placed for access to the A52 and A46, A1 and M1 and also convenient for the market town of Grantham from where there is a high speed train to King's Cross in just over an hour, as well as the Kings Grammar School and High School for Girls.
