This beautifully renovated old farmhouse is brimming with character and period features whilst benefitting from a modern garden room, a stunning wraparound plot and field views. With wooden farmhouse doors and antique fireplaces throughout, it is accessed via a traditional wooden door which takes you into the lounge. With plenty of room for sofas and accommodating furniture, whilst also benefiting from carpet underfoot, a stunning antique fireplace and a large classic sash window to the front aspect, this room sets the tone for what lies ahead in this superb character property. To the left as you enter is the formal dining room, which again, has a unique antique fireplace and can fit a table to sit eight. There are quirky alcoves either side of the chimney breast which are fabulous for dressing and with lighting controlled by a dimmer switch, you can easily create the perfect ambience to host a lovely dinner party in this space. From the lounge and dining area you step into the hallway which adjoins the staircase, office and kitchen diner. Featuring a quaint reading nook, this is the ideal space to perch yourself with a good book! Onto the office, which is modern and looks out over the driveway. Ideal as a home office or hobbies room and fitted with a robust CCTV system which can easily be added to, this room ticks all the boxes. A newer addition to the property, next is the garden room, which is built from brick and solid oak and has glass all around letting in lots of natural light. Fitted with the original kitchen tiles, it is modern in feel yet full of character and acts as a wonderful snug for the family to enjoy. The hub of the farmhouse, the kitchen come breakfast room, offers access to the side garden, utility room, orangery and the pantry. A real country kitchen, it boasts spotlights, ash worktops throughout and a stunning granite island in the centre of the room. With a six ring Rangemaster, butler style sink together with waste disposal and instant hot water tap, as well as space for a dishwasher neatly hidden from view, it boasts all the essentials together with high end finishes. The tiled flooring which flows throughout, is reminiscent of a character farmhouse, yet very practical for muddy paws and footprints and with space for a table to seat eight comfortably, it is the perfect place to enjoy your morning brew! On the wish list for so many, the pantry is a fantastic size and has plenty of space for multiple tall fridge freezers. It also benefits from worktop space and built in cupboards to store all those tins and spices we tend to accumulate! Onto the utility room, in which the tiles from the kitchen flow through. In here, there is space for two white goods, one of which can be hidden from view behind a cupboard front. There is also a butler style sink located underneath the window, which is an added bonus for keeping muddy boots out of the kitchen and a large built in storage cupboard for hiding away coats, bags and shoes, so they are easily accessible day to day but are out of sight. Last of the downstairs accommodation is the cloakroom and storage room ticking all the boxes. Handy for when guests visit, the cloakroom includes a wc and hand basin and the storage room is great for hiding away items such as the hoover and mop which you want out of sight!

Up the staircase which is fitted with a unique character handrail and leads to the gallery landing adjoining the upstairs rooms in a wonderful flow. With original wood flooring and a quirky reading nook, this area could almost be a room in itself! The family bathroom is painted in an eye catching turquoise blue and benefits from carpet underfoot which creates a cosy feel. What are you waiting for? Run a hot bubble bath and relax at the end of a long day! The master bedroom offers stunning views over the front garden and has plenty of room to fit a king size bed and accommodating furniture. There is the benefit of built in wardrobe space, which is a huge plus point and the original fireplace, together with carpet flowing through, help to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Adjoined to the master bedroom, the ensuite is striking in design. Immediately, you notice the black and white tile effect vinyl flooring and the free standing bath tub with shower over on a parquet wooden plinth, which makes for a wonderful feature piece. Bedroom two looks out to the front aspect and is a wonderful size with room for a king sized bed and other furniture. There is a quirky alcove fantastic for dressing and an original fireplace which is a focal point for the room. Originally larger in size, the current owners opted to change bedroom three into two, yet the space has not been compromised in any way as a king sized bed could easily fit in here. With views over the side garden and an original feature fireplace, this room also benefits from a large built in wardrobe which is very practical. The last of the bedrooms, bedroom four, is a lovely size and could fit a double bed comfortably. It has a window to the side aspect and carpet underfoot.

This garden is everything you could want and more! Starting with a superb brick lean-to over the patio, this is a great space to host family and friends for a barbecue over the summer months and there is the added benefit of a second patio area to one side, which would be a lovely space for sun loungers or additional garden furniture! The wonderful wraparound plot provides multiple lawn areas for all the family to enjoy both to the side and front. Beside the patio the brick wall creates a traditional walled garden feel separating the areas effectively whilst in-keeping with the property. Finally, there is the stunning feature hedge in the centre of the garden to the side of the home, which is a fabulous centre piece and the weeping willow which drapes overhead adds to the magic! The summer house is an exceptionally versatile space which is heated, lit and benefits from a tv point. Ideal as a guest room for visitors, home office or perhaps even a small gym, it is a great addition to this beautiful home.

Boasting gated access and with room to park 20 vehicles, the long gravel driveway with original brick wall running beside it, is ideal for a large family or when guests come to visit. To the rear of the driveway there is also a greenhouse, outdoor kennels and shed which could be very practical spaces for budding gardeners or the dog lovers amongst us. A real selling point and extremely large in size, this garage could park multiple vehicles and even has the potential to become a stables. In fact, you could convert this into a lovely stable for two horses whilst retaining enough space to still house four cars! Currently, it is accessed via sliding doors, is fully lit and benefits from a new roof. Finally, the icing on this very delicious cake, is the addition of 1.5 (sts) land to the rear of the property as pictured. The property can be sold without the land if that was your preference too.

With stunning field views just beyond the driveway this area is very desirable. Cowbit (pronounced 'Cu-bit' for those not local!) is a small village roughly 3 miles away from Spalding and 5 miles from Crowland, of which both offer all the amenities you could wish for ranging from great schools, supermarkets, doctors surgeries, shops, restaurants, bars and much more. However, on your doorstep you do have a local convenience store, a well renowned primary school and playing field too. Spalding Train Station has you to Peterborough in 20 minutes, of which trains to London are only a further 50 minutes away. Should you choose to drive to Peterborough, it is only 20 minutes away in the car. Cowbit is an all round popular place to live, with some fantastic tracks, river bank and miles of bridleways close by for keen walkers, horse riders or for those with dogs.
