Originally having been built during the 1700s and having been restored and enlarged in 1853 by the renowned architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, this Grade II listed former rectory, stands in grounds and paddocks of just under 2.5 acres, opposite the Church just 20 minutes north of the Historic Cathedral City of Lincoln.
The property itself benefits from versatile living accommodation and grand rooms featuring many original stone windows, internal shutters on the ground floor windows and numerous open fireplaces, some of stone in traditional Victorian style as designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, similar to the ones he designed for the Houses of Parliament. A wonderful feature of this property is the gothic arched doors and hallways on both the ground and first floor.

Grounds & Gardens
The property itself is approached from the high street through wrought iron gates, leading onto a block paved driveway and hard standing for several vehicles, leading in turn to a detached quadruple garage. To the side of the garage there is a detached stable block providing stabling for four horses, a timber shed and a semi walled kitchen garden/ orchard. To the rear of the property, is a grass paddock, whilst to the front and far side of the property, there are wonderful formal gardens with shrub and tree borders and views over the Ha Ha onto open countryside. There is also a well maintained outdoor swimming pool with polytunnel. There are also several paved dining areas surrounding the property.
In our opinion this is a truly rare opportunity to reside in a wonderful former rectory originally dating back to the 18th century, with Victorian additions, that has been well maintained throughout the years to provide wonderful family accommodation throughout.
