Property Summary***NO ONWARD CHAIN***
An extended home with large rear garden, detached single garage and a delightful kitchen with walk-in pantry, surrounded by open farmland but with a few miles of both Bourne and Spalding. With a selection of good schools close by, the property would be ideal for a growing family.
Overlooking the country lane through the linear hamlet of Tongue End and surrounded by open Lincolnshire farmland a short distance from the banks for the River Glen, this is a home ideal for those who like to be close to the countryside. However, the fast-expanding market town of Bourne is less than four miles away along the South Fen Road and home to a good selection of shops, banks, cafes, pubs, restaurants, fast-food outlets and takeaways as well as both a Tesco and a Sainsburys superstore, a medical centre, a post office and a leisure centre. A regular coach service from the town centre connects with London, the nearest train station is located just under seven miles away at Spalding, from where East Midlands Trains offer connections to Peterborough, Lincoln, Nottingham and Doncaster. Local secondary schools include Bourne Grammar assessed as outstanding by Ofsted back in 2008 but now an academy and the Bourne Academy itself, rated as a good school by Ofsted in February 2018. Primary school options include Bourne Abbey and Bourne Westfield, both judged to be outstanding schools at their last Ofsted inspections in 2010 and 2014 respectively.
Separated from the road by a gravel driveway, the cream-painted brick-built house is offered privacy by green borders on three sides to the front. The drive leads around the side of the flat-roofed extension to a detached single garage with blue-painted doors. To the rear of the garage is a second outbuilding that is currently used as a potting shed. The private garden includes raised vegetable beds amid a gravelled area with a flagstone patio, a shallow wildlife pond, a rockery planted with mature shrubs and trees with a flagged stepping-stone path leading to double doors opening onto the lounge. There are also a number of fruit trees in the garden, including cherry, cob nut and Mulberry trees as well as Elderflower bushes. A separate gravelled area divided from the patio by a head-high hedge can also be accessed via double doors for the kitchen - ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months. There is also another water feature just outside the kitchen's double doors. An outside tap and water butt have already been installed while the rear garden also includes an extensive lawn surrounded by mature trees, offering a peaceful and shady place to escape the hurly-burly of everyday life.
The front door opens on a reception hall fitted with a hard-wood floor, with carpeted stairs with open wood spindles and bannisters rising to the first floor to the left. A latched, solid wood door opens onto a small cloakroom while internal doors lead to the lounge and the kitchen.
Carpeted throughout, plenty of light floods the lounge via both the double doors to the garden and large double windows, while the room includes an authentic fireplace with Mexican tiles, Oak beam mantle and cast-iron basket, with additional warmth in winter provided by a wall-mounted radiator.
However the extended kitchen is perhaps one of the propertys most outstanding features, laid with stone tiles and with dark-painted coving giving the space a cottage ambiance, underlined by the ample wood-panelled cupboard, shelf and drawer units fitted above and below grey laminate worktops. Decorative splashback tiling has been fitted above all the cooking and preparation areas, including the double Aga-style range, with double oven and grill below an illuminated extractor above. There is space and plumbing for both a washer/drier, a dishwasher, and an upright fridge-freezer while the design incorporates a stainless steel sink with chrome mixer tap beneath the window overlooking the front garden. Internal doors from the kitchen also lead into a sizeable walk-in pantry as well as a downstairs WC large enough to accommodate storage space for outside coats and shoes.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto two double bedrooms and a single bedroom all carpeted and fitted with wall-mounted radiators. The partially-tiled house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes a wood floor, a white panel bath with chrome shower attachment, a pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps and a WC with dual flush.
