A village house of immense charm and character dating from the 18th Century and Grade II Listed. The intriguing and fascinating accommodation with beamed ceiling, exposed timbers, winding staircases, nooks and crannies, is indeed quite unusual whilst the rooms are surprisingly spacious and adaptable for a modern lifestyle. The property provides a tarmacadam parking forecourt, a traditional barn providing garage facilities, a self-contained annex, archway and walled garden. Central heating is gas fired and the house is mostly double glazed with the exception of the Yorkshire slider windows. This location is most convenient for the excellent amenities provided in Collingham village.

The house was sympathetically restored around 1990 and at that time an extension was built in reclaimed brick. An outbuilding has since been restored and converted to provide self-contained annex accommodation. The accommodation provides on the ground floor a reception hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, lobby, bathroom and basement room. A winding staircase from the main hall leads to the first floor master bedroom and en-suite and the staircase continues to a second floor double sized bedroom. A second staircase from the dining room leads to a very large first floor teenager sized bedroom.

Outside a brick and pantile range of outbuildings comprises a wash house, barn with garage doors and the self-contained annex garden room with en-suite and oak step ladder to a first floor room with Velux roof lights. The walled garden has a sunny south and west aspect.

Collingham is situated within commuting distance of Newark, Lincoln and Nottingham. Fast trains are available from Newark Northgate station with a journey time to London King's Cross of approx 75 minutes. Village amenities include a Co-op store with cafe, a medical centre, a one-stop store, a primary school and pre-school, butchers, hairdressers, two pubs, fish and chip shop and two Chinese takeaways. Local secondary schooling can be found at Tuxford, Newark and Grammar schooling at Sleaford and Grantham.

The property is constructed with red brick and part coursed blue lias stone elevations under a steep pitched pantiled roof. The basement is constructed entirely in coursed blue lias stone, restored and previously used as an office. The property is attached to no.57 High Street, a smaller house currently being restored.
