6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Heath Road, Scopwick, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN4

6 6 5
Unique Georgian country residence stylishly extended to create a truly stunning family home with excellent equestrian facilities and generously proportioned two-bedroom bungalow. Set in approximately 5 acres of well-drained Lincolnshire heathland, there are easily maintained mature gardens, permanent electric stud wire fenced paddocks, an international all-weather dressage arena, and Scotts of Thrapston American barn stables, as well as a huge driveway providing abundant parking. Grantham’s high-speed rail network to London Kings Cross (approximately 65 minutes) is within easy reach as are excellent and sought-after Grammar schools. Epc Rating - E

“For us, Mill House was a dream come true as it’s close to a number of excellent equestrian competition venues, it sits on well drained heathland, and as an added bonus, it’s an unlisted Georgian property, built in 1783, which has the fantastic symmetry and size of rooms typical of the period.”

“We’ve made a number of improvements during our time here including replacing the original stables with Scotts of Thrapston American barn stabling which we decorated to complement the garden, installing an international all-weather dressage arena, and adding permanent stud wire electric fences to the paddocks. In the house, we’ve reconfigured the bedrooms back to their original layout and extended the kitchen to create an enormous open plan family kitchen with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden.”

“In fact, the family kitchen is probably our favourite room where we can all enjoy spending time together. It’s cosy and welcoming thanks to the Aga and log burner, and there are fantastic views of the stables, paddocks, and surrounding countryside which allows us to keep a watchful eye on the horses from the comfort of the sofa! The principal en-suite bathroom also deserves a mention. It has a really luxurious feel thanks to mood lighting and the very large roll top bath where you can soak away the cares of the day whilst enjoying the wonderful countryside views.”

The large bungalow adjacent to Mill House has been a bonus for the current owners. “Mum loved living there. She had her independence but was still very much a part of the family, she had a guest bedroom and en-suite so friends could visit and was able to enjoy her pretty garden year-round from the comfort of the conservatory.”

“The main garden at Mill House faces south-east and is very private and easy to maintain with mature trees and shrubs giving year-round interest. It’s surrounded by fields and woodland, so we often see deer and pheasants, and it’s great to know that, as the land belongs to the Blankney Estates, it will never be built on.”

“Mill House has been a special home where the children have been able to grow up with the freedom to roam in complete safety and where we’ve enjoyed entertaining friends and family, even large gatherings of maybe fifty or sixty guests, thanks to its size, ground floor layout flowing out through the bi-fold doors onto the garden, two large terraces, and masses of parking thanks to the huge driveway. Perhaps the ‘icing on the cake’ is the fact that, now the A15 ring road is complete, our regular trips to Waitrose are a breeze!”

Scopwick is a peaceful Lincolnshire village with a small stream slowly meandering through its heart. The village boasts a village hall which hosts regular club activities and social events and there’s also a reputable pub/restaurant. The nearby village of Metheringham (2.5 miles) offers a range of facilities including several village stores and pubs/restaurants, a fish and chip shop, takeaway, children’s nursery, vets, and a doctors’ surgery. A more comprehensive range of shopping, dining, and cultural amenities can be found in the historic cathedral city of Lincoln (11 miles).

An excellent choice of primary, grammar, and independent schooling is available nearby including: Metheringham Primary School (OFSTED rated ‘good’); Carre’s Grammar School for boys and Kesteven and Sleaford High School for girls in Sleaford (9 miles); and independent schooling at St Hugh’s School (ages 2-13) in Woodhall Spa (10 miles), and at the Lincoln Minster School, a co-educational day and boarding school in Lincoln (transport is available from both schools to the village).

The village has easy access to both the A15 (4 miles) and A1 (20 miles) with the nearest mainline train service available from Metheringham to either Lincoln (15 minutes) or London King’s Cross (2 hours, 15 minutes). Alternatively, mainline services can also be accessed from nearby Grantham some twenty-two miles away (65 minutes).

There are excellent equestrian competition venues within easy reach including: Elms Farm at Caythorpe, Arena UK Grantham, and Sheepgate in Boston.
