The Property
Idyllically situated in the heart of the beautiful South Lincolnshire rural hamlet of Hanby, yet only a modest drive to easily access Grantham's amenities & national transport links is this extended, detached Period cottage, purported to be the first property built in the village constructed from Ancaster white stone & clay pantile roof with a host of character features encompassing stripped pine woodwork, ledge & brace doors with either Norfolk or Suffolk latches & beamed ceilings throughout.

The first floor offers a galleried landing, two double & two single bedrooms with dressing area & shower room. There is central heating powered by the oil fired combination boiler & Georgian style glazed timber windows & doors, some with deep reveals owing to the thickness of the stone elevations. The delightfully landscaped plot extends to approximately 0.8 of an acre and incorporates front, side & rear gardens, timber cabin with hot tub (by separate negotiation), large stone built barn together with a separate two storey, one bedroom, annexe attached to two single garages & extensive gated driveway parking.
