Property description

Sometimes I get the opportunity to list a property that I have admired from the outside for many years. To then be invited to go inside and see one of these properties for myself can be pretty exciting. One of the owners of Palethorpe House had also admired this beautiful Grade 11 Listed house every time she dropped off her daughter at the High School along the road. When it came onto the market years later the couple bought it for themselves and have tastefully adapted it to suit their own lifestyle in the years since.

The property is conveniently located in a conservation area and is within walking distance of the historic market town of Boston and Pilgrim Hospital, as well as good local schools. Standing nicely back from the road beyond a generous pea gravel in and out driveway, it is clear that the property has the most fabulous kerb appeal. With the original house dating back to 1853, Palethorpe House has Victorian charm and character in abundance and yet has light, neutral décor and carpets throughout. With deep skirting and coved cornices, high ceilings and some lovely period fireplaces and door furniture, the house has all the features that you could hope for. It even has a cellar which now provides additional useful storage so essential in a family home.

One of the very best features of this lovely home however, is the beautiful 'living kitchen' which has been created by opening up two other reception rooms with the former kitchen now being used as a snug over-looking the garden. Designed and fitted by a local family firm, this high quality, fully fitted Oldrids kitchen really does compliment the property perfectly.

The hallway and the two front reception rooms were absolutely filled with sunshine when I visited - such a fantastic welcome, and yet as the sun moves around, the owners explained that their private and incredibly attractive Victorian walled garden also enjoys the sunshine right into the evening.

The house actually also has planning consent to operate as a bed and breakfast. A second, former servant staircase at the back of the house still remains and with some clever reconfiguration upstairs now provides en-suite facilities to three of the four double bedrooms.

Offered with no onward chain, the versatile layout of this lovely property, with an interesting history all of its own will undoubtedly attract many different types of buyer. Perhaps someone else who has passed it and admired it over the years ...
