PARTICULARS Crown Hall Farm offers one of those rare opportunities to acquire an exceptional residential property set in magnificent grounds of some 4.7 acres (1.90 hectares), together with commercial opportunities which can be utilised for a variety of uses, either on a personal and private basis or for more extensive commercial activities, subject to any additional planning consents. Potential car/caravan storage facility.

It is located some 3 miles west of Spalding just off the A151 but also providing convenient access to Bourne (8 miles) and the neighbouring towns of Boston, Sleaford, Grantham and Stamford. The expansion City of Peterborough is some 20 miles to the south west and both Spalding and Peterborough offer rail connections to the main east coast line (Peterborough to Kings Cross only about 45 minutes). The A1 is easily accessed at Peterborough, Stamford, Colsterworth or Grantham.

The Vendors, Mr and Mrs Pat Thomas, have spent a considerable time sympathetically restoring and refurbishing Crown Hall Farm which now provides very well appointed 4 bedroom accommodation with 3 reception rooms and additional well appointed kitchen - all of the accommodation has been finished to a very high standard with natural materials used extensively so that it now provides a wonderful family home.

It is set in private award winning gardens which have been established over the last 15 years and now provide great interest with different compartments and themes, each of which tells its own story. Designed in conjunction/together with Adam Frost 7 times gold medal Chelsea winner.

The grounds of Crown Hall Farm have been magnificently landscaped and now provide an oasis of calm and seclusion in a rural location yet conveniently situated for the amenities of Spalding and nearby areas.

The additional features of extensive garaging, stores, workshop and premises offer the opportunity to combine the use of Crown Hall Farm not only as a private family home, but also with business opportunities or extensive storage and other facilities to pursue private interests.

Viewing of this very individual property is highly recommended to provide the opportunity of appreciating the standard of accommodation and its diverse interest possibilities.
