Full description

Occupying an elevated position with stunning views across the confluence of the Rivers Humber, Trent and Ouse and towards the Vale of York, Fine and Country Northern Lincolnshire are delighted to offer to the market, Prospect House, an outstanding period family home offering well proportioned and flexible three bedroom accommodation.

Understood to originally date back to 1726 and extended in the 1830's it has been carefully restored over a number of years and maintains the honest elegance of its farmhouse tradition. The considered use of lime plaster, exposed area of feature stone and sash windows maintain lightness throughout. 
The home divides itself into distinct sections which offer the flexibility suited to modern living. The buff coloured brick of the “new” house reveals a central reception hall with return staircase and the west facing formal drawing room and dining room are superbly balanced with shuttered windows. An inner hallway leads past a walk in pantry and on to the large breakfast kitchen appointed with a range of duck egg blue units. There is a more intimate snug/lounge with cast iron stove together with a scullery/former groom’s room with copper lined wash tub. 

The first floor mirrors the ground floor. A formal landing leads to two large dual aspect bedrooms overlooking Alkborough Flats and an inner landing leads past a useful office/potential bedroom to the 16'1 period style bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower enclosure. There is an additional 18'8 landing/sitting area (with second staircase leading from the snug) which leads to the third bedroom and second bathroom. This rear section could easily become a self contained teenage annex or additional bedrooms if required. 

Prospect House has been resurrected from a derelict shell to become a distinctive home of well proportioned charm with some of the most striking views in Northern Lincolnshire. 

Prospect House – a gem uncovered.
