Uphill Lincoln (LN1) continues to be one of the most desirable residential locations in the county. A landmark development, The Colosseum, will undoubtedly be among its most exclusive addresses.
Located on one of the historic city’s prime avenues, The Colosseum is very reminiscent of the classic Georgian architecture of the Royal Crescent in Bath. Newport leads directly into Lincoln’s Cathedral quarter and the development is shaped in an elegant oval.

Built by South Hykeham based Tennyson Homes, the fourteen, four storey properties offer between 2,600 sq ft and 5,200 sq ft of interior floor area accommodation, each available with purchaser bespoke interior features.

In the centre of The Colosseum is a landscaped, communal garden and driveway giving access to homes and car parking areas.

The site is the former parade ground of the Territorial Army barracks which lies on Lincolnshire limestone; perfect foundations for the basement level which each property enjoys. The below ground level rooms have plenty of natural light and access to both front and rear of the properties from sunken walkways. Each home has its own private rear garden.

Elegantly proportioned rooms with deep sash windows, high ceilings and open stairways add to the spaciousness and excellent light quality throughout the properties. Bespoke features include kitchens and elements of interior layout as well as bathrooms and en-suite fixtures, tiles and fitted wardrobe styles.

These distinctive homes blend classic Georgian period design in harmony with today’s modern luxury design style and living.

Tennyson Homes managing director Howard Roe founded his company in 1998 with the aim of constructing high quality individual homes with a craftsman’s eye and the use of today’s latest building materials and techniques.

“I believe The Colesseum is the most outstanding residential development in premier, uphill Lincoln for over a century,” said Mr Roe, “and it has been a privilege to have been able to plan and work on this site.”

The site is set back from Newport by a driveway and The Colosseum forms an exclusive and secure, private gated community of homes away from the view of passers-by but within easy reach of all the excellent amenities Lincoln has to offer. Each house has its own appropriate private security system.

Prices for the properties start from £450,000 for a four bedroom home, to £940,000 for a seven bedroom home. Two have already been sold subject to contract.

You can arrange for a private viewing through the selling agents Robert Bell and Company on 01522 538880 (www.robert-bell.org) or you can register for your personal invitation to view at a public open day on Easter Saturday, 4th April.
