Description

The Firs and The Firs Barn enjoy an enviable position in the historic village of Sibthorpe.

The properties which are available together or individually and comprise a substantial period farmhouse which has a glorious late Georgian/early Victorian addition together with a separate detached range of renovated extended and restored former agricultural buildings that creates the separate The Firs Barn property.

The properties sit in an overall site of some 1.54 acres or thereabouts and the plot is easily divided should the properties be sold individually. The main house, The Firs, would then sit in some 1.19 acres and The Firs Barn in approximately 0.35 acres.

Both properties enjoy 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.

The Firs has 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 Firs Barn sits to the side of the plot and is a skilfully renovated and carefully extended former range of agricultural buildings of stone and brick construction and again offering generous accommodation, with a large main galleried lounge with dining area and separate snug/day room together with a kitchen and utility on the ground floor.

To the first floor are three good bedrooms with three bath/shower rooms and extensive open carport and garaging with a large accessible boarded first floor area offering further potential.

Both properties can be bought individually or together as a package for those seeking extended family occupation or with potential for rental or holiday lets or a high end B&B opportunity.

Indeed the main house 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.

Accommodation
The Firs
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 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 Firs Barn
This comprises a separate detached dwelling carefully created from a range of period former agricultural buildings with a considered extension. It enjoys its own courtyard and garden area.

To the ground floor is a principal hall with primary staircase, leading through to a lovely large open plan lounge with separate dining area and corner fireplace with exposed brick and stone chimney with a wood burning stove. There are French doors to the garden and a semi galleried area over the double height room. There is a separate study off and a well fitted kitchen/dining room with exposed stone in part. Separate snug/T.V room and a rear hallway with exposed brickwork, cloaks and W.C and separate utility. There are three generous good bedrooms each
with en suite bath/shower rooms to the first floor.

The property has extensive storage and garaging with a good height open carport and attached triple garage, with internal staircase to a very large boarded loft space with great potential.

Outside
The whole site extends to some 1.54 acres or thereabouts.

If the properties were to be sold individually then The Firs would sit in approximately 1.19 of an acre and The Firs Barn in 0.35 of an acre. The Ordnance Survey sheet attached shows how the proposed site might be divided with the sweeping driveway leading round to the top of the site for The Firs with potential space for separate garaging to be created (subject to consent).

The gardens and setting of the properties are a particular feature with glorious open views across the mainly lawned gardens, which include an original ha-ha, to the open countryside beyond. There is an attractive medieval dovecote set adjacent to the historic church on the edge of the village.
