A historic Lincolnshire home with links to Sir Isaac Newton is on the open market for the first time ever. Newton House is a Grade II Listed detached dower house with 17th century origins, located in the “picturesque” South Kesteven village of Irnham.
The property, which extends to almost 5,500 sq ft across six bedrooms, has recently undergone a programme of restoration works and is ready for move-in at an asking price of £2.8 million. Newton House received its name as it was leased from the Irnham Estate in 1699 by John Newton, a relative of Sir Isaac Newton’s, who was steward of the estate at the time.
Sir Isaac’s paternal grandfather went on to buy Woolsthorpe Manor from the Irnham Estate, where he spent much of his childhood and is now owned by the National Trust. Listed by Inigo, part of the property description reads: “From Corby Road, Newton House has an imposing and elegant presence, bound by a low, coped ashlar wall with original wrought iron spearhead railings, all under a separate Historic England listing.
“Low gates lie at either end, once entrances to what would have been a carriage driveway, though the main driveway to the house is now discretely set to the rear behind electric gates leading to a pea gravel driveway, the garage block and the main house’s service entrance and boot room.
“The house is constructed from squared and coursed limestone, with ashlar quoins and dressings. Three storeys high and five bays wide, it has a moulded, dentilated cornice and plain parapet with panels featuring carvings of flowers and fruit.”
The property has six bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as large verdant gardens set within a three-quarter acre plot. There is also a detached triple garage with ancillary accommodation above, in addition to a further separate en suite ground floor studio space.
