Property Description

Key features


Full description

Stunning location, country cottage built circa 1800, set in one and a third acres (sts) of beautifully landscaped gardens with far reaching countryside views to the front and rear with very generous parking, potential and a refurbished brick outbuilding that may provide a granny annex subject to planning.

The gardens consist of extensive lawns, an old orchard, some mature trees, mixed hedgerow, mostly hawthorn with some privet, soft fruit area and vegetable garden. It has been managed as a low-chemical, wildlife- and bee-friendly garden for over 30 years and during that time extensive wildlife records have been collected. Wildflowers include snowdrops and ramsons (wild garlic) in the orchard, cowslips near the oak tree and yellow rattle in several areas. Flocks of fieldfares visit the orchard in winter to feed on the windfalls. There is also a small pond which has recently been cleaned out and is looking very promising, greenhouse and two sheds as well as brick outbuildings.

The brick outbuildings include a former wash house, former privy and a renovated substantial former joiner's workshop and wheelwright's with replacement roof and UPVC double glazing having the potential to be converted into a granny annex subject to planning.

The two and a half bedroom detached cottage consists of an entrance lobby, kitchen, sitting, dining and study rooms, bathroom with separate shower over the bath, generous master bedroom with dressing area and two built in double wardrobes, second double bedroom from which the third single bedroom with sloping ceiling is accessed. It also benefits from double glazing, central heating and a wonderful patio from which to enjoy the gardens.

Lastly there is an enormous amount of off road parking which can easily be extended past the five bar vehicular access gate into the gardens with more than enough room for a detached double garage if required, subject to planning.

New York is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England in the Lincolnshire Fens and the property is only about 3.5 miles from the village of Coningsby whose amenities include a primary school, supermarket, post office, butchers, hairdressers, electrical store, doctors, public house restaurants and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre. Coningsby is separated by the River Bain for fishing from historic Tattershall with its castle, schools, library, country park and water sports centre and is less than 8 miles from tree lined Woodhall Spa, home of the National Golf Course.
