Understood to date back to the 16th Century, this outstanding Grade II Listed four bedroom detached farmhouse is a home of undoubted character and intimate charm integral to the history of the commuter village of Laceby. There are details aplenty to entrance and beguile the viewer: the blind fan light over the recessed arched entrance, shuttered sash windows, superb timber fire surrounds and unusual sliding vent to the utility door, however, College Farm is not a museum – it is a vibrant living home proud of its history.
The main reception hall defines the home with its flagged floor, distinctive open well staircase with bulb-on-vase baluster and panelled doors. The dual aspect drawing room with open fire and beam work is a stunning family room and the dining room with large cast iron stove is ideal for family celebrations and relaxed dinner parties. A side hallway leads past a study with garden views, a practical utility and on to the 16’3 beamed breakfast kitchen with both gas fired Rayburn and separate six burner range – the informal social heart of the home.
The two principal bedrooms – both with fireplaces mentioned on the listing – lie to the front of this stunning home and an inner hallway leading from bedroom two opens to a further two bedrooms together with a traditionally appointed family bathroom. The accommodation is completed by a further shower room and two large attics.
Occupying a prominent corner position, College Farm enjoys private lawned gardens to the side and rear which are best viewed from the Clematis covered deck adjacent to the raised brick store and double gates allow vehicle access from Cooper Lane.
College Farm is so much more than a collection of details: it is a unique family home which delights and surprises at every turn.
