Folkingham is a delightful village in a very accessible location within south west Lincolnshire. The village is well known for its historic Market place which includes many attractive Listed buildings. The Granary is situated on the edge of the village Conservation Area at the end of a short no through road and enjoys a good level of privacy. Amenities within the village include a well known local store, post office, public house, tea room and an artisan chocolate shop. The neighbouring village of Billingborough has an excellent primary school with an outstanding Ofsted rating and opportunities for secondary education include grammar schools at Sleaford, Bourne and Grantham. There is a preparatory school at Witham on the Hill and private schooling at Stamford. This quarter of Lincolnshire is very practical for the commuter with trains to London Kings Cross from both Peterborough and Grantham with journey times from 52 and 70 minutes. Grantham 13 miles, Stamford 19 miles, Sleaford 8 miles, Bourne 10 miles and Peterborough 25 miles. The accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance Hall, Shower Room, Utility Room, Pantry, Living Room, Kitchenette/Store, Sitting Room, Ground Floor Bedroom, En Suite Shower Room, Bedroom and Bath/WC, Two further Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. The Granary has been lovingly converted under the direction of the current owners to provide a discreet home of enviable charm and character with light and spacious living accommodation including many traditional features such as cats paw oak doors and oak framed Yorkshire sliding sash windows. A strong focus on energy efficiency saw the adoption of geothermal ground source heating and solar panels which combine to give very attractive running costs for a property of this size with surplus power fed back to the National Grid. These aspects were highlighted in an Eco Homes feature by The Daily Telegraph in 2008.The central feature of the property is a very impressive Living Room with Kitchen, Dining Area and Sitting Room in open plan beneath a high beamed ceiling leading to a full height green oak framed gable. A high capacity Clearview wood burning stove is set into a brick fireplace and surround. A separate Sitting Room is also worthy of particular note and has a charming minstrel gallery/library over. This wing of the barn has a ground floor bedroom and shower room together with a second bedroom and bath approached via a spiral staircase and could easily be utilised as self contained accommodation if required. Outside there is a large Studio giving many work from home possibilities, and a good sized Workshop. A further Barn has been partly converted with a view to providing secondary accommodation. The gardens enjoy a good level of privacy and include a "sun trap" terrace and Hornbeam trees planted it form an avenue. The paddock immediately adjoins the gardens to the west and will appeal to those looking to keep a pony or other livestock. In summary this is an outstanding country home combining tradition and style to produce considerable understated appeal.
