Welcome to 5a Burgins Lane, a spacious four-bedroom, three-bathroom, detached family home nestled in the heart of Waltham on the Wolds. Lovingly refurbished to an extremely high standard throughout, the property offers light and bright living accommodation over two floors, in close proximity to the village's excellent amenities and stunning rural walks and adventures.

Built in 2009, the property enjoys traditional styling in a beautiful mix of Cotswold stone and red brick, whilst the interior offers the modern benefits of a contemporary build whilst providing an abundance of space, light and character in every gorgeous detail. To the exterior, the house is enclosed by a curved brick wall, with a flower bed next to the covered porch, expansive and neatly maintained block paved driveway for up to four cars, and garage to the side of the property. Two wooden gates either side of the house provide 360° access to the garden, whilst the right boundary is styled with decorative wooden trellis fencing and blooming hanging baskets.

To the Ground Floor

Entering the property from the covered porch and uPVC five-lever lock door, 5a Burgins Lane welcomes you with a spacious entrance hall guaranteed to provide a pleasant reception. The entrance hall provides access to the first floor with a stylish solid oak staircase featuring carpet and stair rods, whilst doors lead off to the downstairs cloakroom, living room, dining room and kitchen/diner.

From the entrance hall, the property has a downstairs cloakroom conveniently situated in the space below the landing, decorated in a simplistic nautical style with a toilet and vanity unit and washbasin with tiled splashback, perfect for guests to freshen up.

On the left as you enter from the hall, the separate formal dining room is a beautiful space for family meals and occasions. The room can comfortably accommodate up to eight people for a meal around a large dining table, and the owners regularly use the room for Sunday lunches, holidays and Christmas, enjoying the space it provides for socialising and enjoying delicious food together. The wooden-floored room is softly lit with a three-pronged chandelier and two wall lights, whilst it enjoys an abundance of natural light from its uPVC double-glazed bay window framed with contemporary curtains, pelmet and blinds for additional privacy.

Just before the stairs, the second door on the left leads you into a wonderful living room for you and your family to enjoy. This stylish, relaxing lounge is a warm and luxurious haven to relax in with your family after dealing with the stresses of the day, boasting a stunning open fireplace housing a recently installed multi-fuel log burner to provide the perfect space to curl up with your favourite book or a glass of wine next to its glowing ambience. With sizable proportions allowing you to house multiple sofas for ultimate comfort, the room is lit by a chandelier and two wall lights. UPVC double doors provide a beautiful transition from indoors to outdoors, leading onto a brand new patio with stylish raised beds, with a three-pane double-glazed uPVC window overlooking the side of the property beneath the garden's pergola.

Turning to the right from the hall, the spacious, light-filled kitchen/diner is truly the heart of the home. The kitchen comprises an extensive range of wall and base soft-close units for exceptional storage space with solid granite worktops and downlights, integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer and double oven, separate induction hob with extractor hood, pull-out larder, double sink with swan neck tap and double drainer, and 10 inset spotlights.

The kitchen/diner also showcases a sought-after breakfast bar with two stools, perfect for catching up with a loved one or enjoying a delicious cooked breakfast on a Sunday morning. The owners currently utilise the room's dining space as an additional living area with space for a sofa and storage unit, which could easily accommodate a large six-person dining table for informal gatherings and weekday family meals.

With one of the owners being a keen baker, it's no surprise that this incredible kitchen/diner is by far her favourite room - and it's not difficult to see why this is the case. With no shortage of storage space for baking ingredients and cookware, the expansive granite worktops are perfect for preparing breads, pastries and cakes, with the windows flung open on a sunny day for the sun's warmth and the gorgeous smells of honeysuckle and jasmine from the garden.

The room has a back door leading into the garden, with double-glazed uPVC frosted glass.

For your convenience, the property also has an oil and bin storage area to keep everything tucked away for maximum visual appearance.

What the Owners Say

"Having lived in this gorgeous home for 12 years since it was built in 2009, we are downsizing and therefore bringing this property to market. For us, Burgins Lane has provided the perfect space for us to spend time with our grandchildren, with its spacious rooms offering no shortage of beds and sleeping space and allowing regular visits. When we saw the house for the first time, Burgins Lane immediately made an impression with its abundance of space, significant kerb appeal and modern finishes throughout. The kitchen/diner also stood out as an unrivalled area for baking and cooking for our family and loved ones. We love to entertain, and having a home that could accommodate and reflect this within every room gave us that instant this-is-the-one feeling! Over the years, we have refurbished and further modernised the property, from the installation of our beloved log-burner three years ago, to wooden floors in the lounge and dining room, tiled floors in the kitchen and general redecorations throughout the entire ground floor.

We can honestly say that Burgins Lane is truly a house for all seasons. Lovely and cool in the summer, in the colder winter months it's cosy and snug with oil-fired heating and log burner. The lounge offers a wonderful space to entertain or cosy up on a chilly day or night, with a splendid fireplace that makes for a natural focus point. As we have grandchildren, Christmas is by far our favourite season at Burgins Lane, with so many happy memories made under a festooned real Christmas tree in the lounge. With the scrumptious scents of seasonal cooking and baking flowing through the house as we cook up a storm in our beloved kitchen/diner, the lounge is ideal for present opening and Christmas movies, whilst the dining room is simply perfect for enjoying a festive feast.

We are also keen walkers, and during lockdown managed to get out each day for two to three mile country strolls. The local area offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor adventures and pub circulars in the unspoilt countryside, with walking routes for all abilities and preferences throughout farmland and beautiful woods. From the comfort of your own home, you'll also enjoy the sounds of the country - from the clip clopping of horses trotting past the house to the gorgeous birdsong.

Waltham on the Wolds itself has been a joy to live in, from browsing in the local deli for culinary treats or enjoying a made-to-order, authentically wood-fired pizza from the local pizza van making its rounds. The village has excellent road links to the East Midlands - our son lived with us for six months and enjoyed an easy one-hour commute from Grantham to London. And if you're looking to integrate into the fantastic village life, you'll enjoy Waltham's fantastic amenities - from a post office, hairdressers, GP, pub and great primary school to local activities in the village hall and with the Women's Institute."
