Full description

Tenure: Freehold

With stunning views to the front and pasture to the rear, this home is begging for a family to breath new life into it for future generations. Opportunities like this don't arise often so if you're looking for the rural idyll, prepared for some work & want great transport links too - here it is!

This lovely 3 bedroom semi-detached home has been in the same family for many years. The current owner grew up here and leaves with a heavy heart. It now needs someone with vision to transform what is already an open plan configuration into something just a little more contemporary. Downstairs is a lovely long entrance hall with terracotta tiled flooring which spills over into an 'L shaped' living/dining/kitchen with chimneys at both ends, an open fire at one end and a multi fuel burner at the other. Into the 'L shape' we have a fitted kitchen. Step into the inner lobby which leads in turn to a second kitchen, a lengthy room which begs for some imagination and tlc to turn it into something special. Take the wooden staircase upwards to the first floor and encounter a modern bathroom with bath and shower over, and enjoy the original floorboards throughout, some of which are painted, and some which need a sand and varnish. Each bedroom has built in cupboards/wardrobes and offers staggering rural views. Watch out for those sunsets - they can be spectacular! The house is predominantly upvc double glazed and is offered for sale with no onward chain.

Bitchfield is a rural hamlet located just a few miles to the East of Grantham. It enjoys regular bus services to both Grantham and Stamford and is served by a local parish church. In the middle of gorgeous countryside, locals enjoy the extensive network of footpaths incorporating the Danelaw Way which leads in one direction to the popular Ingoldsby Wood. The footpath from Lower Bitchfield to Burton Coggles is particularly well worn at weekends leading as it does to the renowned Cholmeley Arms pub which offers celebrity chef cuisine and fare farmed from the local piggery

Full amenities are located in the nearby village of Corby Glen which offers shops, pubs, a doctors surgery, Primary and Secondary schools and other amenities. Grantham is only a 10 minute drive in the opposite direction and offers all the facilities you would expect from a market town including easy access to the A1 and the East Coast Main Line service to Kings Cross which gets you to the capital in 70 minutes.
