Property description

What do we love about Wheelwrights? Space, Views, Character and Efficiency - it's a potent combination. If you're looking for the wow factor, here it is. This imposing residence buried in stunning countryside is within easy reach of the Capital. Anyone for a slice of Lincolnshire Country Life?

This outstanding family home, fashioned in brick and stone over three floors is situated at the end of a quiet lane amidst stunning Vale of Belvoir countryside. Downstairs is an imposing reception hall with dual staircases which gives access to a stunning drawing room with vaulted ceiling, log burner and lovely rural views. A separate wing houses a kitchen/breakfast room with stone flooring, and breakfast island with granite worktop, plus integrated appliances. French windows in the dining room give further country views and a separate oak framed garden room with bi-fold doors enjoys the morning sun. Beyond the kitchen is a further reception currently used as a Family room. Across the hall is the fifth reception, perfect for use as a study or office, also with bi-fold doors which open onto the garden. There is also a utility room, walk in pantry and cloakroom. Upstairs over two floors are galleried landings and five double bedrooms, three of which enjoy separate en-suite shower or bathrooms, and there are four dressing rooms. The top two bedrooms share a Family Bathroom.

The house sits comfortably on its plot amid a number of carefully landscaped gardens, enabling enjoyment of the sun throughout the day. The views over open countryside are never ending. A gravelled driveway to the front offers parking for up to four vehicles and adjacent is a detached timber clad double garage. A low level stone wall divides the drive from the garden.

Built in 2012, Wheelwrights is characterised by vast living spaces, vaulted ceilings, oak beams, trusses and doors, floor to ceiling windows, and stunning views. It is double glazed throughout and enjoys oil fired central heating which is delivered underfloor downstairs and via radiators upstairs. There are thermostats in every room. This house also has access to high speed fibre broadband.

Branston is a hugely popular conservation village located within the picturesque Vale of Belvoir with its famous castle, pretty villages, canal side and country walks and lovely dining pubs. This makes it an ideal base for those who wish to enjoy a more rural lifestyle but who need to retain easy access to the East Coast Main line to London, the excellent local Grammar schools and the A1 trunk road. Nottingham, Newark, Stamford and Peterborough are all within easy reach, and its only 90 minutes to the East Coast for a day at the seaside
