Hunters Hill is a lovely welcoming home and it’s a fine example of a well-built property from the late 1960s. Shared spaces work well together, while individual rooms are well proportioned. The current owners have taken great care with the high quality of decoration, and fine materials are used throughout. The house is set back from the road behind a deep front garden and is on a slight rise; the large back garden faces south with views over open fields and towards distant woodland. Hunters Hill takes its name from the age-old meeting place of the nearby Brocklesby Hunt.
Kirmington itself is at the end of a gentle ridge of high land that extends north from the Wolds. There is a well known local church, a primary school (within the catchment area for nearby Caistor Grammar School) and a village pub. It’s a welcoming village with a stable population and something of a rural retreat. The area is popular with cyclists and walkers and there is a golf course at nearby Elsham. About 7 miles to the south, the historic town of Caistor is the gateway to the Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Kirmington is close to the village of Barnetby le Wold, where there’s a railway station, and the local market town is Brigg, also with a station, and which is about 7 miles away to the west – 10 to 12 minutes by car. Scunthorpe is 16 miles away and Lincoln, 34 miles, roughly to the south. There is easy access to main roads and just beyond Barnetby le Wold is Junction 5 of the M180 leading to the rest of the motorway system.
Approaching the house from East End stand and take in the gates and garden, a generous front lawn slopes gently up to the house and is bounded in the front by a low retaining wall. Follow the drive up the house: to your left is a wide-doored garage; to your right, two bay windows and between them the double front door under an arched porch.
Once inside, it’s clear that the hallway sits naturally in the centre of the house. And with the polished travertine floor and part panelled walls, the hallway sets the tone for the rest of the home – throughout, there is great attention to detail and careful choice of colours, fabrics and materials….
