Offering a wonderful opportunity to acquire an imposing Grade II Listed Georgian house in the heart of this popular Lincolnshire village, Curliss House is a fine stone property offering extensive accommodation arranged over three floors plus cellar. Much of the original detailing remains, however, the property could benefit from updating.
A wide entrance hall provides access to two formal reception rooms currently arranged as a sitting room and a dining room. Both rooms have sliding sash windows, open fireplaces and original plaster work.
The breakfast kitchen has a range of wall and floor standing
cabinets along with an oil fired two oven Aga, an eye level
electric double oven and a four ring hob with extractor over.
Directly off the kitchen is a butlers pantry with original
cupboards and flag stone floor and secondary staircase to the first floor. To the rear of the kitchen is a doorway leading to a family room with fitted floor to ceiling cupboards.
The study is accessed from here, together with a rear lobby
allowing access to a boiler room and ground floor cloakroom.
The main staircase rises to a split half landing. Two large
principle bedrooms are located to the front of the property,
one of which has an en suite bathroom.
To the rear is a further bedroom, a shower room, separate
bathroom and a first floor sitting room that was added to the property around thirty years ago. Off the sitting room is a balcony taking in the views over the rear garden.
On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, two of which are doubles with a third one being single.
Curliss House occupies a prominent position within the
heart of the well serviced village. The house sits behind a low stone retaining wall with original railings and gateway. A
driveway sits to the side of the property, providing ample
parking and leading to a stone barn with first floor Hayloft
over. To the rear is a very large garden, partially walled and mainly laid to lawn with rose borders and well established fruit trees.
Corby Glen is a well served village which benefits from both
a primary and secondary school, two village shops, two
public houses, two doctors surgeries with in-house pharmacies and a post office. Grantham is approximately ten miles to the North and has an excellent mainline rail link to London Kings Cross.
The surrounding area provides a wide range of leisure and
recreational opportunities. There are a choice of golf courses within a 15 mile radius, water sports at Rutland Water near Oakham, and leisure centres and other sporting clubs available in the surrounding market towns. Education is of a high quality with a choice of both public and private schools, including grammar schools for boys and girls in Grantham and Stamford.
Electric, water and mains drains are understood to be connected. The property has oil fired central heating. (None tested by the agent).
