Out and about
The village of Scotter sits about half way between Scunthorpe and Gainsborough ( 7 ½ and 9 ½ miles away respectively) with easy access to motorway and railway networks; there are bus services running to Scunthorpe, Gainsborough and Lincoln and the village is well served by a variety of shops and services. There is a post office in the Co-op, an award winning butcher, hotel, pubs, restaurants, a chip shop, beautician, hairdressers and a barber’s shop, as well a doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy. There is a village hall, community centre, a volunteer-run library, and an active parish council. There are numerous active local sports clubs and societies.
There’s a primary school and the village is within catchment areas for both comprehensive and grammar schools. There is a Methodist Chapel, St Peter’s Church dates from the 11th century and the village has its own entry in the Doomsday Book. Slightly further afield is Scotton Common & Laughton Wood, which is popular with walkers. Nearby is Scotton Common Nature Reserve, an area of mixed heath and some wetland, with an important variety of flora, fauna and birdlife. The village is set in gently rolling countryside, within easy reach of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
Space and comfort, practicality and a sense of tradition
This beautiful home sits at the end of peaceful cul-de-sac in the village of Scotter. Built in 1995 by respected Lincolnshire builders Peter Sowerby Homes – specialists in using traditional materials – the house features extensive use of reclaimed bricks and timber, bringing a warm and timeless feel to a modern family home. Inside, there’s a genuine sense of a substantial, well-built and sympathetically arranged house; outside the reclaimed brick helps it blend naturally with its surroundings. The property has been thoughtfully arranged, making good use of grounds, aspect and natural light. The buyer of this beautiful home is not just buying an excellent property, but one built with exceptional attention to detail, even down to the things you can’t see.
Approaching the house from the drive, stop a moment. Take in the lawns and the generous proportions of the property with trees behind. To the right is the double garage with direct access to the back garden. Lawns surround the house on three sides. To your left, taking advantage of a south eastern aspect, is the veranda accessed from the sitting room. The house is substantially built, and with great care; details in the brickwork are a mark of the master builder to whom the project was contracted.
Once in the hall the layout is simple but well considered and welcoming. To your left is the sitting room, directly in the hall are the stairs, ahead is the dining room and to your right, the lounge, beyond which is the kitchen. Off the hall to the front is the snug cum tv room. Ceramic tiling from the hall continues into the cloakroom. Throughout the house there is selective use of exposed brickwork and solid timbers. Doors are solid wood, ledged and braced, cottage style.
Sitting Room – the luxury of space and light, and a veranda.
From the hallway, enter the sitting room which runs the full depth of the house, with windows on three sides. On the inner wall is an inglenook fireplace – with a gas coal effect fire – and, typical of the house, a careful balance of exposed brickwork, timber beams and papered walls. French windows lead to the veranda: a lovely space, ideal on a summer’s evening or on a warm but showery day.
Dining Room, Snug and Family Lounge
After the sitting room, three more rooms lead off the hall on the ground floor. In front of you as you enter the house is the dining room, overlooking the rear garden. Immediately to your right is the snug, overlooking the front of the house. Both these are good sized rooms, either of which could easily be used as a study. The next room is the lounge, which is larger than the previous two, with a window to the rear of the house and access to the kitchen.
