More about the property

Atherstone House is situated within the historic ‘Uphill’ area of Lincoln, a vibrant city with direct train access to London in 1h 55m on the new Azuma trains. The immediate area is rich in history and is combined with independent boutique shops, arts and plenty of places to eat and drink. The property’s enviable position on Eastgate boasts spectacular views of the world-renowned medieval Cathedral, built in the Early Gothic style and the centrepiece of the city. All of Lincoln’s major shopping and tourist attractions are within walking distance including Lincoln Castle, home of the famous Magna Carta. Lincoln’s railway station is within easy reach. Also found nearby is the Lincoln Minster School, an independent co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 4-18yrs.

Formally known as The Bishop’s House, it is a Grade I listed property of historic importance with parts dating back to the 13th Century. This really is a unique opportunity as it was previously used as a residence by bishops for over 50 years and this is a first in recent times of it coming to the open market. Atherstone House has undergone a huge project of restoration, and is now considered one of the finest properties in the area.

The current owners have created an impressive home, which uniquely emphasises the abundance of period features whilst complimenting them with large open plan rooms and a high specification throughout. Whilst the property has been fully modernised, there are many 18th / 19th century restored fireplaces, high ceilings with moulded cornice and wooden panelling.

The property sits behind a high stone and brick wall with remote iron entrance gates. On arrival, a driveway sweeps through the formal front and side gardens. On entering the house you will find a spectacular entrance hall with wooden panelled fireplace and ornate central staircase with moulded handrails; leading to a galleried landing.

A few steps lead you down into the impressive formal dining room offering ample space for entertaining, and French doors opening to the gardens on the east side of the property. Further doors at the far end open to the south side with pleasant views of the Cathedral. From here a few steps lead to the sitting room, also facing south, with views of the Cathedral and featuring a fireplace with wood burner.

The largest room in the house is the open plan kitchen, breakfast, and family room; with an abundance of natural light from the large windows at each end and featuring a wide range of fitted units, integral appliances, island, fireplace with wood burner, and tiled flooring throughout.

Across the entrance hall you will find a further spacious dual aspect drawing room, currently being used as an office. The ground floor offers an impressive number of versatile rooms including a utility room, cloakroom, boot room, a rear entrance lobby, and a range of storage rooms.

The first floor offers six spacious bedrooms, and five bathrooms. The first main bedroom has an adjoining dressing room & en-suite, the second and third bedrooms share an en suite and have built-in wardrobes. A door leads to three further bedrooms two with en-suites, and a seperate bathroom. A separate staircase leads to the second floor containing two more attic rooms, and a range of storage rooms.

Outside in the well-manicured gardens is an elevated sun terrace and a private rear courtyard and patio area: perfect for entertaining throughout the year. Lastly there are a range of refurbished outbuildings offering a multitude of options, currently being used as a garage, a gym and a workshop.

Sitting on a private walled plot of approximately 1.2 acres (sts), Atherstone House has internal accommodation and outbuildings in excess of 8,000 sqft. Sumptuously presented, deceptively spacious, with a fusion of modern and period features; it is a simply fantastic property, and a rare and unique opportunity to obtain one of Lincoln’s hidden gems.
