Tenure: Freehold

Osgodby Farm
Extending to about 34.04 acres in total, the farm is in a ringed fence and benefits from the land surrounding the house and buildings.

There is a range of traditional outbuildings with potential for conversion, subject to obtaining planning consent; and a number of more modern buildings which provide ample general purpose storage.

The Property is constructed of attractive stone under a pantile roof, with the accommodation being presented over three floors. The house is located in the centre of the property and benefits from two driveways with ample parking areas. On the ground floor the front door leads to the outer hall which retains many of its original stone features with a part timber floor part quarry tile floor which leads to the utility, cloakroom, study and kitchen/breakfast room. The family kitchen contains many original features and is fully fitted with Shaker style custom made units with Belfast sink, oil-fired Aga, integral hob, dishwasher and fridge.

A door leads to the inner hall which gives access to the stairs leading to the first floor and the principal reception rooms which comprise the south facing drawing room, which is of generous proportions with an inglenook fireplace and a door to the garden; and the dining room with a Victorian fireplace and marble surround with adjoining storage cupboards and shelving. To the side of the hallway is the pantry which contains a range of units, integral Bosch cooker and oven, and provides access to external stores. The stairs from the inner hall lead to a generously sized landing which serves the principal bedrooms. The master suite includes the principal bedroom, en suite shower room with shower, basin, WC, bidet and heated towel rail. To the rear of the house there is a double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and adjoining shower room. Accessed from the main landing is the family bathroom with roll top bath, WC, bidet and shower. The south east elevation has two further bedrooms, one being a generous double with built-in wardrobe with a further double bedroom with built-in wardrobe.

A staircase leads to the second floor which comprises two further double bedrooms with shuttered dormer windows.

The farmhouse sits in a small hamlet of Osgodby between the villages of Irnham and Ingoldsby in South Lincolnshire. The area has easy access to Grantham which offers a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and other amenities. Excellent schooling is available at Witham Hall Preparatory School, Stamford School, with Grammar schools at Bourne, Grantham and Sleaford being easily accessible. Communication links are excellent with trains to London Kings Cross from Grantham taking just over an hour and the A1 is 8 miles to the west.

The property sits in attractive mature gardens and grounds in the main surrounded by walling. To the rear is a timber framed double garage with pantiled roof in close proximity to the house.

Adjoining the house to the north is a range of brick and tiled stores and stables, a small garage and a small store of stone with a sheet roof. Part of the building has been used by the present owners as a kitchen showroom and provides suitable space for an office or other use.

The Land
The land comprises five blocks surrounding and giving protection to the farmhouse in terms of its amenity and views. About 17.14 acres is in arable production and about 14.08 in pasture. There is an airstrip in the north eastern field which is used by the vendor on an informal basis.

The two stone barns would seem to pre-date the 1880s, with the larger of the two being grade II listed. The current national and council planning policies, most particularly Policy SP1 of the South
Kesteven Core Strategy support the conversion of traditional rural buildings to residential use, subject to a number of criteria governing these conversions being met.

Planning advice has been obtained and this is available from the vendor's agents confirming the likelihood that planning permission would be forthcoming for the development of these buildings. Work is ongoing in taking forward an application.

Farm Buildings
To the north of the farmhouse is a range of agricultural buildings which are a mix of traditional stone barns and more modern portal frame buildings, surrounding a yard.
