Full description

In the quiet little village of Sutton St. Edmund amidst the arable fenland of South Lincolnshire is a property, The Oaks, built in 1966. The house is filled with natural light with very well proportioned and spacious, comfortable rooms. The huge living room is almost twenty-foot square save a chunk out of the corner which houses an interesting fireplace in a retro design. The room is triple aspect with double patio doors leading outside at the back, and flows seamlessly into the dining area with its solid timber flooring, which also has double doors opening onto the same south and west facing patio area outside. The big kitchen features a four-oven bright red oil-fired Aga, and also gives a nod to the late sixties/early seventies with its fitted circular seating encompassing a round table bathed in natural light. From the entrance hall a timber staircase leads up to the first floor which accommodates five double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

To the side of the property is a separate double garage linked by the single-storey utility areas. The vast space above the garages is at present a playroom with natural light and power. It has the potential to be an excellent studio, office space, or for extra accommodation. To the back of the house is a hard tennis court.

The house is approached up a sweeping gravel carriage driveway with mature specimen trees, both deciduous and evergreen, gracing the beautiful, immaculately-kept extensive gardens.

The house stands on a plot of about an acre and benefits an acre paddock behind post and rail fencing (under separate negotiation).

The neighbouring villages of Sutton St. James and Gedney Hill have primary schools, village stores and a post office. Alternative schooling is at the sought after independent Wisbech Grammar School about ten miles to the east. The Oaks is in catchment for the excellent state secondary schools in Spalding, fifteen miles to the northwest. Spalding Grammar, for boys, and Spalding High, for girls, are both extremely good, desirable establishments with free bus transport on the doorstep. For professional purposes and shopping and leisure facilities you find the market towns of Long Sutton about eight miles to the northeast, Holbeach about ten miles to the north and Wisbech, the Capital of the Fens, about ten miles to the east. About six miles away is Tydd St. Giles Golf Club and Leisure Centre which not only has a pool and fitness classes but an excellent bar and restaurant.

Please note, a 50% uplift will be attributed to any development other than agricultural in respect to the paddock. Full terms and conditions available upon request.
