The Well House is located in the desirable uphill area of Lincoln with many amenities within walking distance.

This fascinating Grade II Listed stone house is believed to have been built in the early 18th century with 19th and 20th century alterations. The current owners have documentation, retrieved from the Lincolnshire archive, that the house was owned and occupied by Erasmus Darwin in 1758 and was in the hands of the Darwin family for 134 years. This charming home retains many points of interest including chamfered beams to the main rooms on each floor and in the cellar, sash windows and a late 18th century dogleg staircase. Outside is a reset medieval mass dial, possibly from the nearby demolished Church of St Leonard and in the garden a 12th century well with a round opening and dressed stone coping that is independently Grade II listed. The accommodation is on three floors and is deceptively spacious with generous sized rooms and a featured attractive walled garden.
