Hope House is one of those rare finds: a family home that combines cottage-like charm with spacious rooms. Dating from about 1780, the house has a well-documented history from the late Georgian period (including time as a ‘Dame School’), and an extension that was added later in the nineteenth century. With plenty of rooms and flexible spaces, this is a unique property which has that immediate ‘warm welcome’ feel as soon as you enter.
Set just off the broad street of Horsemarket, the three-storey house is detached with the Victorian extension. The south-facing front and immaculate front garden face away from the street – the tone is set for an unusual house: a real country home with the benefits of town living.
Hope House and Horsemarket are close to the centre of Caistor, but far enough from the market square to maintain a genuine sense of calm. The town has good local amenities and easy access to larger supermarkets in Market Rasen, and Brigg, both about 10 Miles away and in Grimsby, 12 miles distant. At Brigg the A180 joins the M180 and the national motorway network. Humberside Airport is 8 miles away and Doncaster Airport 40 miles. There are railway stations at Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Lincoln; the mainline stations at Newark and Doncaster are about 40 miles away. The historic county town of Lincoln is 27 miles away, and the quiet east coast with its unspoilt beaches is half an hour’s drive.
The layout of Hope House is unconventional, with a Victorian extension added onto the long axis of the house, so the property has considerable length and a garden to match. In front of the Georgian house is a part-walled formal garden, with lawn and box hedging surrounded by shrubs and small trees. To the right, a gateway leads through to a paved courtyard which has its own additional paved pathway to the lane in front. Beyond the house lies the rest of the ‘secret’ garden, quietly hidden from view.
