Sibsey - Boston
A Wonderful Country House With Potential Annexe, Set In Parkland Gardens, Having An Indoor Swimming Pool & Equestrian Facilities
10.79 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a semi rural location on the outskirts of this popular village yet only 4.5 miles from the market town of Boston, this extremely well presented and extended property has it all, including an annexe, indoor swimming pool, two storey barn with potential, parkland gardens with fully stocked lake, paddocks, stables and a manege. This property is one of the area’s finest and just needs to be seen.
This substantial five bedroom property is approached off the private driveway into a conservatory family room which is open plan to the well appointed, fitted kitchen breakfast room having a multi-fuel burner. A door from here leads to the dining room, currently used as a sitting room and has an oil fired Rayburn stove which provides the heating and hot water. The lounge is to the front with views over the grounds to the lake and there is a fireplace with LPG fire. Across the hall which has a door to the gardens and stairs rising to the first floor is a large ground floor bedroom also having views over the grounds and door to a shower room, providing en-suite facilities and shared with the indoor swimming pool via a door. On the first floor are four double bedrooms with views over the grounds, feature multi fuel burner at the top of the stairs and there is a luxury family bathroom. A large 30’ x 15’ heated swimming pool with roman end, large windows and French doors overlooking the gardens. From here a door leads to the potential self-contained annexe, subject to obtaining any necessary consents, comprising a large family or games room in excess of 37’ with entrance door from the courtyard and fitted with units dividing an area which could be used as a bedroom. There is a shower room which also doubles as a changing room for the pool.
The property is set well back off the lane and is approached over a long gravelled driveway which leads to the main house and stable block, then branches left to a large parking and turning area for several vehicles including horseboxes. There is a block of timber stables and from this area there is access to the barn and further equestrian facilities. The mature gardens are simply wonderful and are laid mainly to lawns leading to the large lake, fully stocked with various fish including Carp, Bream and Tench. There is an area set aside for the keeping of chickens and there are areas around the house set with patios, shelters and an area currently having an above ground 15’ swimming pool.
Two Storey Barn
Detached and brick built circa 50’ x 20’. Currently the ground floor provides storage, an office and 3 or 4 stables plus a covered lean-to area providing parking. The first floor is one large room in the roof space with external staircase. A separate driveway from the lane leads to the barn and parking area. The barn has potential for conversion subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions.
Equestrian Facilities & Paddocks
There is a block of 2 brick built stables by the house (in need of repair), a further block of 2 timber stables with tack room and tractor store. The 65m x 25m manege has post and rail fencing around, a jump store and an ‘Equimulch’ shredded rubber surface over a ‘Trackright’ base. The main stable yard is located behind the manege in a ‘U’ shape comprising 7 stables and a tack room set around a concrete yard with a covered archway having a shower, also used for farrier and clipping area, leads to the 9 paddocks with central track providing access to all. A previous manaege now provides a sheltered winter turn out area having large field shelter in the middle. The paddock land is around 7.24 acres, subject to a measured survey.
Holly Farm is 1 hour away from both Arena UK and Hill House Equestrian Centre with Sheepgate Equestrian being only a 15 minute drive away from the property.
