Sowerbys are delighted to offer a most handsome Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse and accompanying grounds of 4.65 acres (stms) to the market. The grounds include formal lawns, pond, swimming pool, coach house, barn, walled herb garden, orchard, woodland and paddocks.

The main house comprises the original 1802 farmhouse with period reception rooms plus a large extension to the rear. The property is extremely well arranged and comprises a reception hall with period staircase, drawing room, dining room, rear hall, refurbished kitchen open-plan to family sitting room with oak flooring, new bespoke conservatory, study, cloakroom and utility on the ground floor. On the first floor are five bedrooms and family bathroom, the master having a dressing area, en-suite bathroom and superb views over the grounds.

The extensive outbuildings are particularly noteworthy with a large barn giving a host of further potential if required. We can only suggest first hand viewing to gain a full appreciation of everything this outstanding property has to offer. 

NEWTON, WISBECH Wisbech is an attractive and historic market town commonly known as the Capital of the Fens. Near the bridge is a monument to Thomas Clarkson, an active opponent of the slave trade. Also of interest are the two market places and the parish church of St Peter and St Paul, which has a fine 16th century tower. The Norman Castle has long since disappeared, but there is a house built from its stone by Thomas Thurloe, Cromwell's Secretary of State. Adjoining it is a great museum, one of the oldest in the country, which counts among its treasures the original manuscript of 'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens. In the area there is very good walking and cycling, farm shops nearby, theatre - amateur and professional, a swimming pool, library, good schools- including the highly thought of Wisbech Grammar School, and a Salvation Army hall. The town is only 20 minutes from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Kings Cross via Cambridge approx 1 hour 40 minutes. Peterborough is 35 minutes away with its national rail links.

GARDENS The gardens that accompany Newton House are absolutely stunning and a superb feature of this beautiful period property. We understand the gardens extend to 4.65 acres (stms) in total and are broken down into various areas of garden, paddock and orchard. The main property has an original formal gate leading to the front, however the day-to-day entrance is via large wrought iron gates at the rear to a central courtyard area surrounded by outbuildings. This area gives access to the parking in the former coach house, barn and the rear of the main residence. Parking here for at least 6-8 vehicles+ and from here one can walk through an arch into the immediate rear lawn. This area is beautifully tended and enjoys a southerly aspect and can be accessed directly from the family room or conservatory where there is a patio area. From here there is access to the walled and hedged swimming pool with further access to the walled garden and the orchard and vegetable garden beyond. This area continues around to a large paddock with post and rail fencing where the current vendors keep the whole area beautifully maintained. Sweeping towards the front of the property is a former grass tennis court which is now an additional lawn area as well as a beautiful sunken garden with pond and views back towards the main house.

The walled garden is set out as geometrical beds bordered by gravel paths. The vegetable garden has well-established asparagus and raspberries, this area in turn leads to a fenced orchard with East Anglia traditional varieties of apple, pear and plum trees. The grounds themselves are dotted with stunning plant life including some mature trees such as a flowering cherry, lime and a beautiful copper beech. Near the pool house is a set of disused piggeries, currently used as garden storage and a chicken house. The before mentioned former tennis court is worth investigating should someone wish to reinstate either a grass or hard court as this area is perfectly sited for it. 

THE COACH HOUSE 29' 10" x 15' 5" (9.1m x 4.7m) An up and over door leads to the former coach house which is now the garage for the property. Concrete base and power and lighting with door to large cellar at rear, two fitted wood stores to side and door and staircase leading to a loft room over the coach house.  

LOFT ROOM 29' 10" x 15' 5" (9.1m x 4.7m) This area could provide further potential for use as an outside office with some further conversion (subject to necessary planning permissions and consents) should one require. Currently used as a project room. 

BARN 55' 1" x 18' 0" (16.8m x 5.5m) Electric roller door, water point, power and lighting, divided with workshop to one side. This large barn could have further potential for more additional accommodation should one wish (subject to necessary planning permissions and consents). 

SWIMMING POOL AREA Approximately 36' 1" x 16' 4" (11.0m x 5.0m) With an outdoor heated pool (heating provided by an air source heat pump), covered barbeque area and WC, shower and changing room.
