Description

Heydour Priory is a stunning Grade II* listed five bedroom stone family house set in the most attractive gardens and grounds in this popular village just 7 miles from Grantham. Steeped in history this former Priory dates back to the 1500’s and enjoys thick stone walls, flagstone floors, exposed oak beams and stone mullioned windows. The property has been lovingly restored and improved and offers a superb country retreat with its amazing summer house and grounds and beautiful countryside walks leading right from its front door.
In more detail the accommodation comprises grand entrance hall with flagstone floor and exposed beams, WC, breakfast room with wood stripped floor and Aga, door through to kitchen with good range of fitted units, windows overlooking rear garden and access to back door. Above the breakfast room is a study/fifth bedroom with fitted cupboards and superb garden views. Double aspect dining room with exposed beams, flagstone floor and inglenook fireplace with log burner. Impressive triple aspect sitting room with garden views, stripped wooden floors, exposed beams and stone fireplace. The first floor is accessed via a stone spiral staircase, double aspect master bedroom with dressing room, guest bedroom with en suite bathroom and luxuriously appointed family bathroom. The top floor has two en suite attic bedrooms separated by a sitting room.
Outside the property is approached through electric gates onto a gravel driveway flanked by manicured lawns which lead to the house and the outbuildings with hard standing for several vehicles. The magnificent gardens and grounds extend to approx. 3.3 acres and include two ponds with mowed pathways dotted with wild flowers and established trees making it incredibly private.
The outbuildings include a stone and pantile barn currently set up as a gym, garage, wash house and wood store. Between the hard tennis court and one of the ponds is the most spectacular summer house/garden room complete with kitchen/bar and shower room. One end is set up as a games room with bi-fold doors facing the tennis court, the southern end enjoys a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and bi-fold doors opening onto a paved terrace overlooking the pond and the landscaped gardens beyond. This would make an ideal single storey annexe or even home office (subject to the necessary planning consents). This property and grounds really need to be seen to be fully appreciated.
