Full description

Offered for sale through Fine and Country Northern Lincolnshire, The Grove is an important Grade II Listed Georgian farmhouse which has been extended to provide substantial four/five bedroom accommodation offering the flexibility and versatility demanded by modern life. It is a home for family entertainment in a community minded historic village on the shores of the River Humber.

The balanced façade with its central hallway opening to the south facing sitting room and formal dining room hints at its former glories. An inner hallway with cloakroom converted from the former butler’s pantry leads to the principal lounge with bespoke handmade cupboards and polished timber fireplace. The 18’11 oak effect farmhouse kitchen is ideal for relaxed socialising and allows access to the large laundry room, walk in pantry and covered entrance with stores and boiler room. A practical area redolent of its history as a working farmhouse.

The first floor retains the traditional balance with a main landing serving two double bedrooms, one of which enjoys en-suite facilities. An inner landing with the original ladder to the loft leads to a further two double bedrooms and recently restyled family bathroom with both bath and separate shower. The remaining 20’11 bedroom – currently used as an office – links to the games room with bar. It is felt that this suite of rooms could easily become an annex for independent living if required. 

The Grove is fronted by formal lawned gardens with a par terre and a productive kitchen garden leads to a lawn formerly used as a tennis court. Beyond the extensive reception area with its four car garage and suite of offices over there is an outstanding walled entertainment area which includes a covered pool with changing room, decked viewing area and additional store rooms. 

Ideally suited to convivial entertaining and socialising, The Grove exemplifies a traditional Georgian Lincolnshire farmhouse.
