“When we first saw the building work taking place, we were intrigued to find out more as it’s a great location. It’s a circular building with unusual architecture and it certainly appealed to us. Tucked away in a gated community, we feel like we’re part of a little village in the big city of Lincoln,” say the current owners.
“We were able to choose the property that we wanted, and we opted for this one as we’re not overlooked and the garage at the back gives us additional parking space. We were able to make changes to the internal specifications as the property was being built and we opted for additional enhancements, including upgrading the wooding flooring and carpet which has worked very well for us.”
“We tend to spend most time in the kitchen and it was this room that really sold it to us. There’s a large island, dining table and log burner, so it really is an all-in-one room. We can cook and chat at the same time and it’s perfect for day to day family life. The living room is on the ground floor too and it’s a great space for entertaining. The lower ground floor is ideal for guests as they can enjoy their own space and head up to the kitchen to make a cup of tea whenever they like. We always celebrate Christmas here with our extended family as there are plenty of bedrooms to accommodate everybody and the 12ft Christmas tree looks amazing as it fills the space between the two floors.”
“The location is fabulous too. We’re close to The Bailgate which is the uphill section of Lincoln and we enjoy walking around the Castle gardens and Cathedral. There’s a great variety of independent shops, restaurants and pubs all within a 10-minute walk and we must mention The Lawn Cafe, as well as the annual Christmas Market which is always a fabulous event.”
“We spend a lot of time in our garden which is fully enclosed and not overlooked which makes it the perfect spot to relax in the sun or by the firepit with a glass of wine. The grassed area is great for our children and it’s very easy to maintain. We open the kitchen doors out to the patio, and everyone streams in and out as they wish,” conclude the current owners.
