Skirbeck Hall enjoys a private, slightly elevated position within a small exclusive gated development on the outskirts of the historic market town of Boston. Dating back to 1847 with 20th Century alterations and extensions, this beautiful Grade 11 Listed family home enjoyed a rich history, initially the former rectory and later as a private girl's school before being totally renovated between 2000 and 2003.

Today, Skirbeck Hall is the most incredible family home and has been much loved by the current owners for almost 20 years. It has a fabulous approach around a private established green before driving through the brick pillars which lead to the property itself, and enjoys views over the St Nicholas' Church to the rear.

The property offers all who visit the most wonderfully warm and comfortable welcome from the minute you step through the doors. Decorated throughout in traditional heritage colours, Karndean flooring is both practical and hard wearing for modern life and yet perfectly compliments period features such as panelled doors, arches, intricate coved cornice and deep skirtings. There are shutters to the windows in all of the principal rooms and the property is absolutely filled with light from large sash windows.

As with all the best custodians of period homes, the owners have continued to sympathetically maintain and improve the property, with the most recent additions being a brand new bathroom off the master suite wonderful bespoke orangery off the kitchen, built less than a year ago and which the owners tell me has completely transformed how they live in the house. A superb property for entertaining family and friends, there are five beautifully appointed reception rooms to the ground floor and a fabulous baluster staircase with stone steps to the first floor, where four large double rooms each benefit from en-suite facilities. Former servant's quarters on the second floor offer the potential to convert into additional bedrooms subject naturally to the appropriate consents.

And so to the outdoors which is just as well considered and designed as the inside. What could be more perfect than a dreamy walled garden, sun-drenched and south-facing, comprising lawns with limestone patios and paths, that are lined with lavender and olive trees and a superb sunken kitchen garden with raised beds.
