A spacious period family house of great charm and character set in approx. 1.2 acres located in the historic village of Sibthorpe enjoying glorious open countryside views.


Sibthorpe is extremely well situated some seven miles to the south west of Newark, with easy access to the newly dualled A46 providing good access to Nottingham and a wide range of regional centres.

Train times from Newark Northgate to London Kings Cross 90 minutes approximately.

The property enjoys a fine position within the village enjoying a glorious aspect to the open countryside beyond.


The Firs enjoys an enviable position in the historic village of Sibthorpe. The property is a substantial period farmhouse which has a glorious late Georgian/early Victorian addition set in some 1.19 acres enjoying commanding open views across the gardens to the open farmland and countryside beyond, and there is a historic medieval dovecote set in the land adjoining the nearby church.

There are fine principal reception rooms located within the main period house, with a well proportioned drawing room and dining room off a reception hall which links through to the earlier farmhouse, which has further reception rooms, a number with beamed ceilings, and there is a principal kitchen and also a secondary kitchen.

The Firs has extensive bedroom accommodation with both en suite and separate bath/shower rooms, together with the second floor set out as a small apartment but also providing additional bedroom accommodation if required. The main house has been well maintained and benefits from sealed unit double glazing and also has a lovely conservatory to the side overlooking the gardens and the open farmland beyond.

The property has been used for high quality B&B on a small scale and itself divides very easily into two separate living sections, benefiting from two good breakfast kitchens within the different areas of the house.

The principal period house offers a lovely well proportioned reception hall with a Minton tiled floor leading to the main drawing room, which is a glorious double aspect room with shuttered windows and a fine period chimney piece with an inset wood burning stove. The dining room is of similar proportion with a fine marble chimney piece, shuttered windows and glorious views. The inner hall leads to a cloaks with W.C and a well
fitted secondary dining kitchen with utility area off.

There is a further sitting room within the original farmhouse with a lovely beamed ceiling and slate fireplace with wood burning stove and period built-in cupboards. From the inner hallway, this leads through to a lovely family room/lounge with a high beamed ceiling and a wood burning stove with original servants room bells. This opens to the secondary staircase, a hall, and onto a large conservatory/garden room with two sets of French doors looking out onto and with access to the side terrace and gardens
and the open farmland beyond.

There is a principal dining kitchen with beamed ceiling and good range of fitted cupboards and built-in appliances. Laundry, boiler room and cloaks with W.C.

The principal dogleg staircase leads from the hallway and gives access to the master bedroom with a cleverly conceived en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms at this level and a separate recently refurbished shower room and W.C. An inner landing leads to three further bedrooms, one with a full en suite bathroom and a separate family bathroom with W.C. The secondary staircase leads down to the ground floor.

To the second floor is a separate apartment with kitchenette area, shower and W.C, comprising two rooms and can be used as either living or bedroom space.

The property sits in approx. 1.2 acres. The gardens and setting are a particular feature with glorious open views across the mainly lawned gardens, which include an original ha-ha, to the open countryside beyond.
