On approaching the property, I immediately noticed beautifully maintained gardens and instantly looked forward to seeing more. A firm believer in positive first impressions, I could already imagine that the property was special if the impeccable gardens and super neat hedging was anything to go by.
The Lodge enjoys an incredibly private and secluded plot which is not over-looked by any other property. The accommodation is very well presented and very light, with most rooms having dual aspect windows enjoying views over the fabulous garden from all angles. The main sitting room was filled with sunshine on my visit and is a beautiful room with French doors opening out onto a patio. The open-plan 'Living-Kitchen' has ample space for a dining table and a sofa, and is the room where the owner spends most of his time other than the garden. Upstairs, the fourth bedroom has been turned into a bathroom, the original bathroom now making a generous en-suite of the master bedroom with a spa bath and a shower. The most recent extension however, created the facility of a ground floor double bedroom and shower room, which would certainly be ideal for an older family member or when guests come to stay or for anyone working from home. There is however, a great detached studio / office which has a garden room attached complete with wood-burner, perfect for sunny days and chilly evenings.
The Lodge enjoys an attractive semi-rural position along a country road only a 20 minute walk from the well-served village of Swineshead and five minutes from the local farm shop. Approximately 15 minutes from the market town of Boston, the property would be ideal for anyone looking for a quiet country life, yet still requiring convenient access to major routes to Lincoln, Peterborough and Grantham. Indeed, the picturesque North Norfolk Coast can also be reached within the hour from this side of the town.
