delightful living space full of period charm and character.
Where possible, original features have been retained and

A bright and welcoming sitting room, benefiting from a large sliding sash window overlooks the front gardens. The original open fire place was constructed using the 'Long Brick' design after the brick tax was imposed in 1784.
The beautifully appointed kitchen has an excellent range of
hand finished cabinets and drawers and opens to the lovely
dining room/snug with its cosy wood burner.
A vaulted ceiling and large window flood natural light into
the Garden Room/Studio offering truly flexible space for a
multitude of uses. Coupled with the architect designed
conservatory offering the most beautiful views over the
garden, in all Dovecote House really does offer a haven of
peace and tranquility.
On the first floor the family bathroom can be found along
with three good size bedrooms, the master having an ensuite shower room. All the rooms are bright and offer a
good sense of light and space.
GARDEN & GROUNDS
A large gravel driveway and a neat lawned area sit behind
mature hedging providing a very attractive frontage and
pedestrian access to the side and rear of the property. The
rear garden is a plantsman's paradise with a variety of
traditional and some unusual cottage garden plants. Two
formal borders either side of the steps can be enjoyed from
both the garden room and the conservatory, or from the
gravelled sitting area below.
A further woodland border can be found under the
magnificent old Cherry tree at the foot of the garden.
There are two boarders around a small shed that are used
as a vegetable plot and nursey bed. There is a second larger shed with both power and light, suitable for workshop etc.
The well to the side of the garden has been fitted with a
pump that feeds the hose, so all water is natural and freely
available. As a result, the garden has a naturally operating
ecosystem and has not needed to be treated with any chemical sprays or insecticides.
Walcot is a pretty village located just 1 mile from Folkingham and approximately 8-10 miles from the market towns of Bourne, Grantham and Sleaford. There are a variety of local primary schools to choose from within a 4 mile radius with excellent secondary schools in both Bourne and Grantham. Amenities in these towns are many with Grantham being on the East Coast Main line offering a direct service to London King Cross in approximately 64 minutes.
