WHEATEN HOUSE CAUNTON
A fine and substantial country house constructed to a remarkably high standard (late 2008) set in private grounds of 6.90 acres, having a virtually panoramic aspect across the surrounding countryside to Lincoln Cathedral - visible above the horizon on a clear day.
Wheaten House is set on high ground some six miles to the north of the Minster town of Southwell, a truly remarkable setting, offering privacy and seclusion with the advantage of relatively direct access into the surrounding regional centres of Nottingham, Derby, Sheffield and Lincoln, with a fast direct rail service from Newark Northgate station into London Kings Cross.
The architectural design and carefully conceived internal plan of the house have been combined to create a strikingly handsome country house creating a unique large family home in the country. The principal rooms have been planned to take advantage of far reaching views across unspoilt countryside as evidenced in the main reception room, with its full height glazed elevation with a mezzanine floor, the spacious open plan ‘living’ kitchen and to its full extent by the ‘Rotunda’ office/study and the stunning master bedroom.
A unique home extending to 7490 sq. feet (696 sq. metres) gross internal floor space constructed to a high standard with the benefit of proven ground source heating, complemented by a supplementary central heating system and a high standard of thermal insulation.
In summary, Wheaten House is a remarkable property which is difficult to describe adequately in an estate agents’ specification.
Quite simply, if you are looking for a truly remarkable large family house in the country, then look no further than Wheaten House.
