Placed in Skellingthorpe, just a stone’s throw away from Lincoln and four miles west of the historic Cathedral, this detached property has been altered and extended significantly.
Its owners initially came across the abode while in search of a project, after being based in the area for twelve years. They have now lived at the home for three years. “We saw the house and realised straight away how much we could do with it,” the owners said. “It was in desperate need of modernisation and has now been completely revamped. It’s undergone a dramatic change.”
If taking a tour of the home, one will begin by stepping into the main reception hall and will notice the solid oak staircase. To the left is a study/bedroom, while straight ahead is the lounge and an open plan kitchen/living/dining area. The spacious lounge, the owners’ favourite room in the house, hosts a feature fireplace with a Contura Wood Burner and large bi-folding doors, which are a delight to open up. “It’s just like being sat outside,” the owners noted.
Moving into the kitchen one will see a range of Schuller glass fronted kitchen units, a central island with large drawers and units below, quartz work surfaces, a NEFF induction hob and central extractor fan, integral NEFF ovens and steam ovens, an integral fridge and dishwasher, sink unit and drainer. While the kitchen portion of the open plan space utilises tiled floors, the living and dining area features American walnut wood flooring. The kitchen/living/dining room, off of which one will find a utility room and W/C, can also be introduced to the outside via bi-folding doors.
The first floor holds four bedrooms, two of which have an en-suite and dressing area, one of those being the master. The master bedroom presents a feature high vaulted ceiling, four velux windows, internal feature windows, a dressing area with fitted hanging rails and shelving, a mezzanine balcony area and an en-suite shower room, a key aspect of which is the walk-in shower area with a rainfall showerhead. A family bathroom can also be found upstairs.
Outside of the house there is a driveway for off-road parking, which gives access to an integral double garage with an electric up and over door. Meanwhile, in the rear garden one will see a large patio area, a lawned area, a variety of mature trees, a protected birch tree, shrubs, and a summer house.
While they love the home and its peaceful yet well connected location near to Lincoln City Centre, the owners are now selling. The modern property is now on the market with Mundys for £615,000.
