THE STORY

From their period home on Barrowby Road, the new owners of the three-storey property will be able to make the most of their superb location, according to the agent marketing the property. The five-bedroom house is ready to move into and offers good access to the town centre, train station, shops and schools. "The location is superb for travel as it enjoys proximity to fast roads, and is just half a mile from the railway station, with its fast trains into London Kings Cross, which take approximately an hour," he says. "It is set back and sits in an elevated position, and has good access to some beautiful parks and historic attractions."

PERIOD HOME

Dating back to late Victorian times, the substantial house is well laid out and offers good family accommodation. "It has been well maintained and retains some of its period features, such as fireplaces," he says. "To the front there is a large drawing room, which might possibly be used as more of a formal entertaining space. There is then a family room, a breakfast area and the kitchen and utility room." The kitchen is well fitted out and offers ample space for food storage and preparation. The ground floor accommodation at the house offers children and adults their own space - children could be watching television in one room while their parents are entertaining in another. "The arrangement of rooms is such that new owners could also furnish a space as a ground floor study or work area," he adds.

FLEXIBLE LIVING

Three bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found on the first floor. There is also an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom. "Two more bedrooms are up on the second floor - these could be ideal to give a teenager his or her own space or perhaps one room could become a study or hobby area. There is scope here for new owners to use the house in all sorts of different ways, depending on their requirements." The house, which has a garden to the rear, could also be ideal for someone seeking an investment property. "It could be a great family home or a possible rental property," he adds.

GOOD CONNECTIONS

Grantham is popular with families and commuters. Frequently described as the gateway to Lincolnshire, it enjoys good links to the A1, as well as a high-speed rail service to London, and is often named as one of the top commuter towns in the country. It has a developing town centre, with many colourful shops, indoor shopping centres and a bustling Saturday street market, as well as a fortnightly farmers' market. "There are lots of sports facilities in the area, including the De Vere Resort Golf Club," he observes. "Grantham is also known for its canal, along which you can actually walk all the way to Nottingham and spot a rich variety of wildlife."

PLACES TO VISIT

There are also beauty spots, such as Queen Elizabeth Park, to visit, he continues. "This has the River Witham running through it and offers also 10 hectares of semi-formal parkland, as well as conservation and picnic areas." Nearby Belton House is set in its own magnificent deer park and is a popular place for walking and cycling. Built in the late 17th century for Sir John Brownlow, its honey-coloured symmetry, opulent décor, fine furnishings, stunning silverware and gorgeous gardens provided the perfect setting for lavish hospitality and entertainment on a grand scale. Each subsequent generation left its mark, employing top designers, craftsmen and portrait painters.

TOWN AND COUNTRY

Grantham House is another a favourite place for locals to spend time. This National Trust building has architectural features from various eras and encompasses a walled, riverside garden. "One of the nice things about Grantham is that there is plenty to do," he says. "Those living here also often enjoy heading out into the countryside. The town itself is thriving and yet Nottingham, Leicester, Lincoln and Peterborough are all within reach too." He adds: "This house could be ideal for someone seeking to move to the town for the first time or for a family keen to move to a larger home. It offers generous space and is in a good location."

SETTING THE SCENE

To the front, the house on Barrowby Road is elevated, with a small front garden. To the rear, the kitchen opens on to a family garden.
