Manor Farm, a fine Grade II Listed building stands in the tiny settlement of Eagle Hall in peaceful, rural surroundings. The accommodation provides rooms which reflect the character and dating of the house from medieval times, the 18th and 19th century and indeed a 20th century kitchen extension. Constructed with stonework, brick and render the house was substantially restored just over thirty years and now comes to the market for the first time following this lengthy period as a family home.

The rooms are warm and inviting. This is a large house but the accommodation flows throughout. The principal rooms have a south facing aspect of the walled and enclosed garden. There are views to the north and north east of the house over miles of unspoilt countryside. Eagle Hall is approached by comparatively quiet country lanes and this is a most tranquil and pleasant situation.

The ground floor provides a reception hall with the first staircase and a high ceiling. The morning room is a large dual aspect room and also leading through from the hall is the music room which features a finely carved fireplace and Oak beams. There is an inner hall with the second staircase, a wide and easy flight leading to first floor levels. The sitting room has a heavily beamed ceiling and deep window reveal within the stone elevations. The fine dining room has an 11' high heavily beamed ceiling and a wonderful inglenook fireplace. There are views towards Lincoln Cathedral from this room. The kitchen, a comparatively modern extension to the house, has space for a large dining table and there is a Stanley cooking range. Ancillary rooms include a rear porch, boiler room and downstairs separate WC. The staircase from the reception hall rises to a landing, master bedroom 1 with en suite and an ideal guest bedroom with connecting door to the main landing. Also on the first floor level is a further bedroom presently used as a study and the family bathroom. The staircase from the inner hall has rather splendid handrails and balustrades which leads to the games room with exposed Kingpost roof trusses and gable windows. A short flight of steps to the children's bedrooms Nos 3 and 4 with connecting doors. A flight of winding stairs from the reception hall landing continues to the second floor with attic rooms.

Outside there is an outhouse comprising potting shed, coal shed and store. The four bay former open cart shed provides excellent garaging. There is a walled garden, tarmacadam driveway, gravelled areas and walled frontage.

Eagle Hall is an area of historical significance. The Knights Templars and Knights Hospitallers are known to have been active in this area during the 12th and 13th century crusades to Jerusalem. Manor Farm now sits in this small settlement with Eagle Hall House, The Coach House and The Barn as neighbouring properties. The villages of Swinderby and Eagle, both with primary schools, are within two miles. Access points to the A46, also within a couple of miles, provide easy access to Lincoln and Newark. There is a nearby railway commuter service to Lincoln, Newark and Nottingham. Fast East Coast railway trains are capable of journey times between Newark Northgate and London Kings Cross in just over 75 minutes. Whilst within the rural and rolling countryside of the Lincolnshire borders, Eagle Hall is quite accessible to local centres and beyond.
