Description

Welcome to The Heathers! An exceptionally large home sat approximately 8 miles to the west of Boston in East Heckington. Built in a traditional Chalet-Style, the configuration of the home is really versatile. Rooms currently used as bedrooms downstairs would function well as additional reception rooms, meaning that what is currently an extensive six bedroom house with snug, would quite easily be a five bedroom home with an office and children's playroom or hobby room.

The Heathers is spoilt with a vast plot, spreading its arms out to hold approximately over half an acre of land (STS), you get to enjoy an array of outdoor areas that have been well proportioned for a multitude of uses. Lets begin with the driveway to the foot of the home. Comfortably accommodating 4 or 5 vehicles with turning space, this gravelled area is flanked by a large lawn area, surrounded by trees to privatise the area. As you move to the rear of the home, look left and you'll be absorbing far reaching field views as far as the eye can see showcasing Lincolnshire's rich agricultural landscape. To the back of the home, a large patio area hugs the rear and side, opening up to an outside chill zone. Low lying wooden fencing and gates open up to the large secondary driveway which foots the extensive double garage. Enclosed with large sturdy and secure gates, this gravelled area is also more than capable of holding a further 4 to 6 vehicles, plus the parking space within the swinging doors of the garages. Behind the garages, a huge expanse of lawn goes on, and on, and when you think the fence puts an end to it, it goes even further! This is truly an outdoor lovers home, with such an amazing offering of land.

The Heathers finds its home alongside an excellent road which directly links the nearby towns and villages. A 10 to 20 minute drive gets you to the likes of Boston, Sleaford, Heckington and Swineshead, with a huge array of amenities to choose from. The well regarded South Kyme Golf Club is only around 4 miles away, and the Princess Royal Sports Arena a little further at still only 7 miles away. Travel a little further down the A17 and you'll be at in the City of Lincoln in just over half an hour, but going the other way at the Holdingham Roundabout would set you on course for the A1 at Newark; putting you on one of the main commuter arteries of the country.

As we draw our attention to the interior of the home now, we'll take you on a room by room journey of the circa 2,100 square foot of accommodation, to walk you through exactly why we feel The Heathers is really a truly special house. Let's go!

This home includes:
  • 01 - Porch

    Upon entering the home via the front door, a generous porch area has been divided to create a downstairs WC. An ideal place to hang your coats and store shoes, the tile effect vinyl flooring is tasteful and low maintenance to help keep this high traffic area clean and tidy.

  • 02 - WC

    This compact room has a privacy glass window to the front, with a handy and space saving toilet complete with over-cistern wash hand basin.

  • 03 - Kitchen Diner

    7.6m x 5.3m (40.2 sqm) - 24' 11" x 17' 4" (433 sqft)

    Measuring at over seven metres by five metres at its widest points, the L-Shaped Kitchen Diner is a vast open space which has recently been fitted with a fantastic brand new Kitchen. Designed with modern taste in mind, the high gloss work surface continues on to create a breakfast bar separate to the other two main cooking/working areas, finished with a dark grey tile effect laminate flooring. Featuring integrated appliances such as an Induction Hob, Microwave, Oven and Fridge-Freezer, you'll also find plumbing for a washing machine and ample storage within it's 23 cupboards and 6 drawers. Around the other side of the breakfast bar, the room opens out to an area perfect for your large dining table. A window overlooks the open field views to the rear of the home. A large archway leads into the lounge, with the other end of the room leading through to the inner hallway which continues on to a further two reception rooms and bedroom with en-suite.

  • 04 - Lounge

    7.2m x 3.8m (27.3 sqm) - 23' 7" x 12' 5" (294 sqft)

    This excellent room has enormous amounts of natural light cascading in through the three large sound-reducing windows that are at the front and side aspects of the home. Stepping down into this room from the dining area of the kitchen, a modern mid-grey laminate flooring sets the tone of continuity as this makes it's way through the majority of the downstairs. The room is finished with a feature fireplace, along with wall lights that match the beautiful pair of chandelier style ceiling lights.

  • 05 - Reception Room

    3.6m x 2.7m (9.7 sqm) - 11' 9" x 8' 10" (104 sqft)

    Currently used as a bedroom, this room would function well as either a comfortable sized office or snug. With a door either side, you have access to the lounge as well as the inner hallway. Equipped with sockets and a TV point to the wall, there is also a window to the side aspect of the home.

  • 06 - Reception Room

    3.7m x 3.1m (11.4 sqm) - 12' 1" x 10' 2" (123 sqft)

    Also used as a bedroom, this equally as spacious room could function as a great hobby room, childrens play room or study. As per the previous room, a window looks out to the same aspect.

  • 07 - Bedroom (Double) with Ensuite

    3.6m x 3.1m (11.1 sqm) - 11' 9" x 10' 2" (120 sqft)

    Tucked away at the rear of the home, with it's own large en-suite shower room, this bedroom could suit well as guest quarters or a more independent person looking for their own slice of peace and privacy.

  • 08 - Ensuite Shower Room

    2.4m x 2m (4.8 sqm) - 7' 10" x 6' 6" (51 sqft)

    A bright, modern and spacious shower room with a vanity unit with inset wash basin, WC, corner shower unit with rainfall shower, heated towel rail and quality tiled flooring. The walls are finished with a simple white emulsion, complete with modern grey tiles within the shower cubicle and behind the sink.

  • 09 - Covered Courtyard

    5.19m x 4.01m (20.8 sqm) - 17' x 13' 2" (224 sqft)

    The lean to offers an area that brings the indoors and outdoors as one. The light floods in from above as well as all sides, with double doors leading to the patio at the side of the home. Currently, the owners utilise this area for their chest freezer and dryer, and could be easily fashioned into a covered eating area during the warmer months, as well as a way of enjoying the views to the rear of the house in the colder and wet weather.

  • 10 - Landing

    As we bring our tour upstairs, the large landing area presents us with a small access hatch into the eaves/loft storage, as well as doors leading to four bedrooms and the family bathroom.

  • 11 - Bedroom (Double)

    3.7m x 3.4m (12.5 sqm) - 12' 1" x 11' 1" (135 sqft)

    Starting at what we'll call the far end, the first of the bedrooms upstairs has a window which overlooks the front of the property, with a great view of the large lawn beyond the driveway. A large area of built in cupboards line one of the walls, measuring approximately 2.5 metres across.

  • 12 - Bedroom (Double) with Ensuite

    4.4m x 3.6m (15.8 sqm) - 14' 5" x 11' 9" (170 sqft)

    The second bedroom we come across as we come back on ourselves has it's own en-suite within the room. Originally the main family bathroom , the current owners saw this unused space and created a fantastic double bedroom offering a WC and hand basin separated off with a partition wall, with a fabulous free standing roll top bath positioned in the corner of the room. Reaching into the eaves of the house, this room has sloped ceilings, which has been taken into consideration when measuring useable floorspace.

  • 13 - Bedroom (Double)

    3.8m x 2.5m (9.5 sqm) - 12' 5" x 8' 2" (102 sqft)

    Continuing the chalet theme - the next bedroom also features sloped ceilings which aren't imposing on space or headroom. Of an already comfortable double bed size, the floor space is accentuated by the addition of a bay window area bringing a good level of natural light into the room.

  • 14 - Bedroom

    3.1m x 2.2m (6.8 sqm) - 10' 2" x 7' 2" (73 sqft)

    This bedroom is a fantastic single bright bedroom with views to the rear garden. Again, the room has sloped ceilings which don't impact the usability of space.

  • 15 - Bathroom

    3.1m x 2m (6.2 sqm) - 10' 2" x 6' 6" (66 sqft)

    The family bathroom is a brand new addition! Which concludes our tour of the inside. This room is well proportioned with a modern bath with shower, WC and wash basin. Having only recently been separated off, this room also benefits from a brand new suite, with newly tiled walls and floor finished with a marble effect and contrasting grey. The ceiling is also sloped, with spotlights fitted providing a good balance of light in addition to the window which faces out to the side of the property.

  • 16 - Garden

    The garden is effectively sectioned off into five parts. Boasting such a large plot, each area provided offers a great amount of space. Moving from front to rear, the lay of the land starts with a lawn area. Separated off by a low level brick wall, the landscape rises slightly for the gravelled driveway at the front of the house. The rear of the property is accessible via a gate, and is predominantly laid with patio slabs keeping this area low maintenance and useable for outdoor entertainment space. This continues round to where the 'Man Cave' is currently sitting, with lots of space for several items of furniture, perfect for larger gatherings. A low level picket fence and gate separates you from the second driveway at the rear, which is enclosed with quality double gates which lead to the road. Also gravelled, this area offers ample parking with access to the large double garage. Further on from here, the final area of the plot lies before us. A huge lawn space which itself is split 80/20. Surrounded by fencing and hedgerow, opportunity to overlook the far reaching fields at the rear presents itself when you're in the final portion of the lawn. The hedges cease and you're treated to fantastic field views.

  • Please note, all dimensions are approximate / maximums and should not be relied upon for the purposes of floor coverings.

    The core of this property is the large kitchen diner, which flows seamlessly through a wide archway into a beautiful large living room.

  • A substantial property indeed! The Agent notes that with the correct planning submissions, the lawned area to the side of the property could potentially made available as a sizeable building plot. This could be for a self contained annexe within the existing grounds, or even a completely separate property with it's own generous garden and parking areas.
