General Description - The Manor House is a wonderful, detached, period country home which is believed to date back to 1846 and is situated on the very edge of the attractive and desirable Lincolnshire Wolds village of Salmonby. The property enjoys rural open views from an elevated position and is set within mature and thoughtfully designed grounds of 2½ acres that lead down to a free-flowing brook and water meadow. In recent years the property has been extensively remodelled and updated by the current owners to create a comfortable family home with accommodation that includes three reception rooms, four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The Kitchen and Dining Room are linked by a wide opening to provide an excellent all day living area complete with open fireplace. The main rooms, including the Master Bedroom are arranged to take in the southerly Wolds outlook through tall sash windows.

The property is hidden away from the village road and is approached through a five-bar gate and a sweeping driveway. There are a range of period brick outbuildings set away from the house including a triple garage, a games room/workshop, barn and former stables. Previously planning permission was granted in 2004 to convert the barns and stables to four holiday lets although this has now expired.
