This beautiful late 17th century house is set over three floors and is an absolute gem, set in the market town of Brigg.
Throughout this grand home there is evidence of its great age yet its character perfectly compliments the 21st century elegance and comfort offered throughout.
The house would have been built for a man of substance, possibly a merchant, as trade and commerce expanded greatly during this time increasing England's wealth.
The house offers five sumptuous and elegant bedrooms with their own distinct style, three of which are en-suite and there is an indulgent and luxurious family bathroom and a ground floor cloakroom.
Each of the ground floor sitting rooms have the facility for a roaring fire, one of which is housed in an original range which would have been regularly black leaded in its day by the maid!
Nowadays the range provides a comfortable place to curl up in comfort with a good book.
The original windows provide ever changing framed pictures of the charming garden and the historic high street.
For languorous dinner parties the formal dining room opens up to the garden through French windows, just the ticket for after dinner drinks on the patio.
Brigg is a historic market town offering two markets; a farmers and a street market and provides a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding countryside.
The sandy beach at Cleethorpes and the beautiful city of Lincoln are both just over a 20 mile drive from the house.
The area is so accessible even for a day out to the Peak District.
The verdant and undulating Lincolnshire Wolds provide great opportunities for walking and cycling and the village of Barnetby is a mecca for train spotters.
This fantastic holiday home is ideal for break away at any time of year.
