Partney Hall is an elegant country house set in a much sought after village location.

Standing in private grounds of more than an acre, Partney Hall is a prominent Grade II listed country house situated on the south western edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds surrounded by many miles of beautiful open rolling countryside and scenic walks.

Dating back to the late 18th century, this magnificent home, which underwent alterations in the 19th and 20th centuries, also features later additions.

Originally built in an attractive red brick under grey slate roof, it retains a wealth of original character features adding to its unique appeal.

The vendor moved here with her husband in 2014 and says she remembers that while he “fell in love with the hall’s high ceilings, large light rooms and privacy, for me it was the grounds that were the main attraction with lots of old trees, nature and wildlife.”

This impressive seven bedroom family house also features three bathrooms, five formal reception rooms, conservatory, dining kitchen, laundry and boot rooms.

Downstairs, the graceful drawing room features a wood burning stove inset to stone firebox with polished stone ornate surround, with mythical figures to the over mantel, ornate decorative cornices and feature ceiling lights.

Next door, the music room leads through archways to the hall with beautiful paintings featuring the property.

There is also a spacious and elegant dining room with a semi-circular window seat, windows to both rear and side offering aspects of the grounds, with a door leading to the light and airy conservatory.

Entered from the rear of the property, the annexe features a spacious studio with wood flooring, oil fired Worcester Green Star boiler, telephone point, and cloakroom with loft access hatch.

“Our first impression of the property when we came to view was just ‘wow, we love it!’” says the vendor.

“The house is large and light with large windows and plenty of space, but also so cosy and welcoming.

“I think Partney Hall would suit a large active family, multi-generational, or somebody who loves to entertain. It is also perfect for someone who works from home as it has a separate annexe.”

Mature gardens
Partney Hall stands proud as an elegant country house in a beautiful village setting within 1.4 acres of grounds that reflect its appeal.

The spacious gardens include formal lawns with patio seating areas and balcony terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining or relaxing in the peaceful surroundings.

Approached via a tarmac driveway, there is plenty of parking space as well as a detached double garage.

The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with an attractive mix of mature trees and contained by post and rail fencing, with wood panel fence to one side and mature hedging to the front.

The brick edge south facing patio seating area sits alongside the conservatory, with established shrubs, trees and a radial rose garden making it an attractive setting throughout the seasons.

“The grounds are very beautiful with many old trees and a large variety of birds and wildlife which often come to visit,” says the vendor.

“This is what I think I will miss most about living here. I have been quite ill, and although I am recovering slowly, with a heavy heart I have decided that Partney Hall is getting too much for me to look after on my own.

“However, I’m not moving far away and have already bought a bungalow in Partney, as I am very happy living in this village.

“I hope whoever moves to Partney Hall will love living here as much as I have.”

Village history

The existence of a Saxon Monastic house has also been recorded and the village was the birthplace of Henry Stubbe, the noted 17th-century physician and scholar.
