Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

***PART EXCHANGED CONSIDERED***Holmfield is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture at it's best with a symmetrical double fronted red brick fascade, a canopied central entrance and a traditional slate roof. This fine residence stands proudly within established parkland gardens in the eternally popular village of North Thoresby and purchasers seeking a classic home which combines space and quality in equal measure are advised to visit at the earliest opportunity. A particularly notable feature of Holmfield is the fact that the original Coach House at the rear has now been transformed into a superb two bedroom annexe residence, perfect for two generations of the same family to live in close proximity but with independence. EPC Rating-F

During the period of occupation by the current owners Holmfield has been progressively updated and enhanced and is now a home to rank alongside the very best in the region. Principal features of the main house include the impressive Reception Hall from where the elegant staircase leads to the first floor, the spacious Sitting Room with its dual aspect windows and polished limestone fireplace and the linked Lounge and Family Room with both feature classic firesurrounds and plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining. There is a useful Office plus walk in stores and a Utility Room but pride of place amongst the ground floor accommodation must be afforded to the stunning Paul Deakin design Living Kitchen it its craftsman made cabinets, granite worksurfaces and electric AGA cooker. A high part vaulted ceiling makes a real design statement and two sets of French doors open to the gardens.

At first floor level (Accessed via a choice of two staircases!) there is a central Landing plus four double bedrooms with the two at the front of the house sharing a white suite and shower and a further staircase then leads up to the second floor Attic Room, perfect for storage or hobbies.

The converted Coach House with its clock tower is a wonderful 'extra' aspect of Holmfield. At ground floor level there is an Entrance Hall, a Cloakroom, a cosy Lounge and a very spacious Dining Kitchen whilst upstairs there are two excellent size double Bedrooms (both with built in furniture and one with a shower) and a Bathroom. The annexe has its own heating system and Council Tax assessment really has the feel of being a home in it's own right.

A undeniably huge Snooker/Leisure Room adjoins the Coach House accommodation and provides scope for a variety of uses and there is a Double Garage with an integral workshop. The wonderful grounds include sweeping lawns, established trees, greenhouses and vegetable gardens plus a superb outdoor dining Pavilion perfect for al-fresco entertaining. There is a hard tennis court (in need of a little attention) and a crescent shaped driveway almost encircles the main house allowing easy access and parking for any number of vehicles. A paddock at the rear extending to around 2.5 acres is included in the sale and will tempt those with equestrian interests.

The village of North Thoresby provides a range of local facilities including two popular Public Houses, a well stocked general store and a homeware shop. There is a primary school and the property falls within the catchment of King Edward VI grammar school in Louth.

All in all Holmfield is a high calibre residence combining the strengths of Victorian design with the must have features of a modern family home. The Coach House annexe adds a further dimension to its appeal making its availability a very special opportunity indeed. EPC RATING:- HOLMFIELD – F / ANNEXE - D
