Top Farm is a highly desirable detached edwardian farmhouse which also includes a brick built, detached large single garage (and extensive gravelled parking), a range of similarly built outbuildings and a former Coach House with planning permission for conversion to a holiday cottage. The paddock also enjoys the benefit of planning permission for the erection of a two stable block and currently includes the advantages of a water supply, modern, timber built field shelter and brick built hay store/pony stable.
The house successfully blends the character of a bygone age with the advantages of more modern amenity. High ceilings and picture rails in the majority of rooms and attractive fireplaces in two of the reception rooms sit alongside period style double glazed windows whilst the Breakfast Kitchen includes an extensive range of quality, ivory coloured units (with either granite or wooden work surfaces), with integrated appliances, all contrasted by beautiful slate tiling to the floor.
Further advantages include an oil fired central heating system and uPVC double glazing.
The Family Bathroom offers the benefit of a built in vanity unit with granite surface, panelled bath and separate shower cubicle with power shower, whilst the adjacent cloakroom has built in W.C. And wall mounted hand basin. The Master Bedroom features a range of built-in wardrobes, an en-suite Shower Room and small study area.
Most rooms are generous in proportion with accommodation briefly comprising Entrance Porch, Hall, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Drawing Room, Breakfast Kitchen, Utility Room, Rear Hall, Cloakroom (with wc), four double bedrooms (Master with en-suite Shower Room), Family Bathroom and Separate Washroom/wc.
The property straddles the southern end of Silver Street (a no through road), with the house and gardens on one side of the lane and the paddock on the other side.
The house faces south-westwards with principally lawned, exceptionally private gardens at the front bounded by a post and rail fence, shrubbery and hedgerow. The views are simply stunning.
The gardens on both sides are also laid mainly to lawn and the rear is predominantly gravelled to provide extensive parking facilities and access to the Detached Garage. A sheltered, walled courtyard sits between the rear of the house, garage and one end of the outbuildings which, in turn, provide excellent storage facilities..
The former Coach House with its own gardens and planning permission for conversion to a holiday cottage is located in the north-eastern corner of the plot. Some primary works have been completed to ensure the planning permission is available in perpetuity.
The paddock, measuring some 3.17 acres, is bounded by mature hedging and includes a water supply, brick built hay store/pony stable and a large, timber constructed, field shelter which was part of planning permission obtained to also build a block of two stables.
The location of Top Farm offers outstanding opportunities for outdoor pursuits (walking, cycling, riding) immediately from the door, in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
A choice of local market towns, Louth (some 10 miles), Horncastle (some 8.5 miles) and Market Rasen (some 9.8 miles), all offering great produce and excellent schools. Golf courses in Market Rasen, Louth and Woodhall Spa are all within easy reach and Market Rasen also has a highly regarded National Hunt racecourse. Slightly further afield lies the Cathedral City of Lincoln (some 18.7 miles to the Cathedral) to the west and to the east, the vast beaches and wild salt marshes of the coast (some 22.2 miles to Saltfleetby/Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve).
