A Fine Grade 11* Manor House in a delightful village.

Folkingham Manor is an ?uncommonly fine Manor House? according to Pevsner's Buildings of England and sits in its own grounds of approaching an ACRE standing back from the historic market Place in the popular village of Folkingham. The house is of impressive appearance with warm Ancaster limestone walls beneath a hipped Collyweston stone slate roof and is a compact country house perfect for either family living or a readily accessible country retreat.
The property is easily commutable to London with East Coast trains from Grantham to Kings Cross taking from just 65 minutes or around 45 minutes from Peterborough.
The Manor stands behind a distinctive front wall with pillared gates and, returning to Pevsner, is of ?high quality and sophistication of detail?. It has been well maintained and the layout of the house is ideal for family occupation with four separate floors each making a distinctive contribution and providing ample space for relaxation, study, working from home or entertaining. Outside the generous private gardens and an all-weather tennis court combine to make The Manor very suitable for entertaining and the perfect place for either a party or relaxed country weekend.
The genteel Georgian village with its wide Market Place leading up to the Greyhound former coaching inn and fine St Andrew's Church lies in attractive rolling countryside, characteristic of south west Lincolnshire. Folkingham enjoys a strong sense of community and there is a late opening local store, Post Office, farm shop, Public House, and a well-used village hall. Excellent schooling is on hand with Witham Hall Preparatory School, Stamford School, Oakham and Oundle or the Grammar Schools of Bourne, Grantham and Sleaford.
