Full descriptionThe former Victorian Moortown for Caistor Station and Station Master's House offering 4/5 bedroom family accommodation with many original architectural and internal features offering a superb opportunity, in particular, for those interested in the railways, lying in a rural situation not far from the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
Location - Moortown lies along the B1434 road midway between the towns of Market Rasen and Brigg. The small market town of Caistor with its well respected Grammar School lies to the north east. Station House lies approximately three quarters of a mile from the centre of the village on the B1205 and opposite the Skipworth Arms public house. The village of Moortown is well placed for travelling around North Lincolnshire and is within easy reach of the M180 motorway link, the port of Grimsby, the Humber Bridge, Humberside International Airport and Scunthorpe.
Remarks - Built in red brick under a slate roof by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, this substanial property is typical of its age. Many fine architectural features such as tall chimneys, gable ends topped by stone finials and mullioned window sills remain. The current owner has lovingly restored all the original windows which are now new sealed unit wood with hardwood sills.
Alongside an operational track between Market Rasen and Barnetby, where the last train to stop at the platform was in 1964, Station House has been privately owned for approx. 25 years and includes an oil fired central heating system.
The property still retains great charm and character including such internal features as the former ticket office, windows and doors.
