Situated in the pretty hamlet of Walcot, Dovecote House is a delightful country farmhouse that in recent times has been sensitively restored and extended to provide the most delightful living space full of period charm and character.
Where possible, original features have been retained and all additions have been kept very much in character resulting in an elegant, comfortable living space.
The property has been carefully extended and now offers a vaulted dining room and a peaceful conservatory overlooking the rear garden and the open countryside beyond.
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 breakfast kitchen has an excellent range of hand finished cabinets and drawers and is open to a comfortable snug with its cosy wood burner.
A vaulted ceiling and large window flood natural light into the spacious dining room with delightful views over the rear garden and access to the architect designed conservatory offering the most peaceful space to sit and relax. In all, Dovecote House really does offer a haven of peace and tranquillity.
On the first floor the family bathroom can be found along with three good size bedrooms, the master having an en suite shower room. All the rooms are bright and offer a good sense of light and space.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
A large gravel driveway and a neat lawned area sit behind mature hedging providing a very attractive frontage and ample parking area. Pedestrian access to the side and rear of the property is via a wooden close board fence and gate with trellis work over. 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 dining 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 nursery 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.
