A fine Grade II Listed 18th Century farmhouse of immense character and charm. Rooms have a south facing aspect with secluded gardens, an orchard, woodland area and two grass paddocks in all extending to 4.704 acres or thereabouts. The property stands with a walled frontage on a quiet country lane and no through road in this small Lincolnshire Nottinghamshire borders settlement. This idyllic situation surrounded by nature and wildlife is conveniently situated just over 6 miles east of Newark.

The rooms are spacious and with traditional tall window openings especially light and airy. The house is interesting and indeed quirky whilst retaining fine Georgian features including doors, cabinets, mouldings, box locks and many more. Certainly Apricot Hall is worthy of it's Grade II Listing which describes the property as mid 18th and early 19th Century.

The accommodation provides on the ground floor, reception hall, dining room, sitting room, family room, staircase, hall, breakfast room, kitchen and shower room. The interesting small winding staircase leads to first floor accommodation with 4 double sized bedrooms, corridors, box room, toilet, lobby and box room and the family bathroom.

The mature garden has a canopy of majestic trees. There is a small range of brick and pantile outbuildings requiring some repair. The orchard and spinney area are a wildlife haven. The paddocks with hedgerows are the ancient rig and furrow.

Sutton-cum-Beckingham is a small settlement situated on a country lane which is a no through road. The village of Beckingham and the A17 trunk road are just over 1 mile away. Lincolnshire primary school and secondary school education is available in the area. Commuting distances are approximately Newark 6 miles, Lincoln 20 miles, Grantham 12 miles and Nottingham 26 miles. There are mainline railway stations at Newark and Grantham with short, fast journey times to London King's Cross.
