A Queen Anne house of great distinction and character.

Lister Place comprising the house circa 1720, wrought iron gates and gatepiers are notably Grade II* Listed. The house stands in beautiful grounds with separated gardens and walled surrounds. There is a fine range of outbuildings including a coach house, stables, domestic outbuildings and apple store.

The principal accommodation comprises on the ground floor: a sitting room with fine mouldings; drawing room with alabaster fireplace and shuttered windows; inner hall; dining room with inglenook; kitchen with AGA cooking range and space for a large table; back kitchen; lobby with cloakroom; and side porch. There is a small basement with three cellar compartments. The first floor provides the principal bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room; a study on a mezzanine floor level, two spacious bedrooms in the front elevation of the property; back landing and bathroom. Winding stairs lead to second floor accommodation with four bedrooms; bathroom and attic room.

The village of Brant Broughton is situated eight miles east of Newark, close to the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire border. This pretty and genuinely unspoilt village has a variety of brick and stone built properties. The spire of the parish church, St Helen's is noted by Nikolaus Pevsner in his book The Buildings of England as one of the most elegant in Lincolnshire. Lister Place is situated quite close to the church and Church Walk is a quiet no through road. The village has a primary school and public house. Communications in the area are excellent with the A1 and A46 trunk roads crossing at Newark. Many commute from the village to Lincoln, Grantham, Nottingham and Newark. Fast trains from Grantham to London Kings Cross are capable of journey times of just over 65 minutes.

The house is constructed in brick with Ashlar dressings, a plain tiled roof with four gable stacks and stone coped gables with kneelers. The fine central doorway is approached by two semi circular steps and has a plain Ashlar surround and segmental pediment. In about 1919 a flat roof tower was built on the north side of the house with ancillary accommodation. In around 1972 when the present owners acquired the property, extensive alterations were carried out and then further alterations in the 1980's under the supervision of Francis Johnson, a well known architect specialising in the Georgian period. He is responsible for the porch, the sitting room alterations with fine mouldings and panels and the en suite bathroom. The quaint top floor fire escape was installed circa 1920 by Lady George Seymour and is just now a decorative feature.
