Description

An outstanding stone featured detached barn conversion, of some considerable charm and character, standing in a delightful and very secluded country location, within wonderful grounds extending to in the region of 3 acres (sts), from which there are eye catching views out across the Witham Valley and beyond to the Lincolnshire Wolds on the eastern horizon.

The barn was converted in the 1990’s with the express intentions of providing substantially wonderful open plan living space with a mezzanine floor level above (GIFA 164 sq,m/1765 sq.ft), so as to maximise the architectural visual appeal of the main barns large open floor area, its rustic stone structural detailing and the substantial pitched ceiling level with exposed roof timbers. The first floor level of the barn could be significantly extended, subject to necessary consents, to provide a potential GIFA 2,300 ft2 / 213 m2 (sts) of family accommodation.

The property stands at the very point at which the Witham Valley fen meets the eastern slope of the north Lincoln cliff escarpment. The village of Metheringham is only a three-minute drive away., offering a surprisingly good range of local amenities including; a rail link to Lincoln, Primary school, Post Office, Co-op supermarket, pharmacy, pubs and more. The historic City of Lincoln lies approximately 9 miles away to the north and has an excellent range of shopping, social and educational facilities.

There are also good road connections in the area out to a number of region’s RAF bases, the A1, the market towns of Sleaford and Grantham, as well as Newark with its high-speed rail link to London Kings Cross. The new Lincoln Eastern Bypass has improved the accessibility to the lower escarpment villages to the south and east of the city, preventing the city centre congestion delay in order to access the A46 and A15 running north into the county.
