Spacious equestrian home set in approximately 1.75 acres in the desirable village of Ingoldsby, which combines characterful charm with light and contemporary spacious family living. A gated driveway leads to the detached double garage with loft room and separate workshop, whilst to the rear, an extensive terrace overlooks delightful mature lawns, a stable block, barn/tack room, and paddock. There are excellent and sought-after grammar and independent schools within easy reach, whilst Grantham offers a high-speed rail network to London Kings Cross (approximately 65 minutes).When the current owners first viewed Green Gates, they realised it was just the project they had been looking for. “Although we could see the house required a lot of work to make it the home we had dreamed of, we could see its potential as it offered a huge amount of space in an idyllic rural setting where the children could run around and play safely.”“We’ve basically gutted the house including installing a new roof, wiring, plumbing, heating, floors, and underfloor heating to the main living room, master bedroom, bathroom, and shower room. The original part of the house dates back to the 1800s with three of four separate additions to the building since that time. In fact, we have the original property deeds and auction documents and we’ll be happy to pass them on to the purchasers as they’re a lovely record of Green Gates’ history.” “The house has great character with really deep walls and window sills in the oldest parts, and fantastic brick fireplaces in the snug and dining rooms. We tend to socialise with family and friends in the living room as it’s a lovely light and spacious room for everyone to congregate in, but on a cold winter’s night, there’s nowhere better to relax than in front of the log burner in the snug.”To the rear of the property, an expansive terrace overlooks the large mature south-facing garden. “It’s a great place to relax or entertain and was ideal when the children were growing up as there’s so much space to play. In fact, we’ve held numerous birthday party celebrations over the years, and the paddock has been great for quad bike racing and where the children all learned to drive. It’s also a real wildlife haven. We frequently spot deer, kites, buzzards, owls swooping down across the paddock, and a family of pheasants who seem to have adopted us!”“Ingoldsby has been a really lovely place to live. Everyone’s very friendly and there’s a great community hall and social club which is pivotal to village life hosting annual events such as the summer fetes, gymkhanas, and bonfire nights. So we’ll be very sad to leave this house as it’s been a really wonderful place to watch our children grow up but, as they’ve now left home and we no longer have any animals to look after, it feels like the right time to move on. Green Gates will be a wonderful home for a new family to grow up in and we wish them well.”Ingoldsby is a small village in an idyllic rural setting and a thriving village community hall. There are two nearby villages, Corby Glen (4 miles) and Folkingham (4 miles), which between them offer a Co-Op, post office, tea rooms, village store/delicatessen and chocolate factory. A more comprehensive range of shopping, eating, and cultural facilities is available in the market towns of Grantham (8.5 miles) and Bourne (11 miles), and in the historic Georgian conservation town of Stamford (22 miles).There are excellent rail links to London King’s Cross from Grantham (65 minutes), whilst the A1 (6 miles) and A15 (5 miles) are within easy reach.Primary education is available in the village at Ingoldsby Academy, grammar schools in Grantham, Sleaford and Bourne, and independent schooling in Bourne and Oakham (22 miles).NB We advise potential purchasers to verify the perimeter boundary with their solicitor prior to legal exchange of contracts. Approximate average mileage and journey times are quoted.Services:: Oil fired central heating, electric, private drainageLocal Authority: South Kesteven District CouncilCouncil Tax Band: CEpc Rating: E...Read full description
