Known to have dated back to the 1700's, The Black Horse and The Cherry Tree is an outstanding residence situated on Church Street, in Market Deeping. Set in a desirable conservation area, this home forms part of the protected view on Church Street and was formerly The Black Horse Inn until 1909.



It has a stone frontage and Collyweston tiled roof that are typical of the area. Market Deeping is a historic market town with a fascinating history dating back to Roman times.

Offering approximately 3600 sq ft of internal living accommodation and set on an extensive plot of 0.51 acres, this home can be accessed from either Church Street or the driveway from The Woodlands, which sits to the rear of the gardens. At the front of the property, there is a reserved off road parking space.

With records dating back to the 1700's, this residence naturally retains traditional features, namely a large wooden beam which spans most of the length of the home and is reputed to have been recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

The home itself is extremely well proportioned throughout and is essentially formed in two parts. The front of the home offers an entrance porch which leads into an extensive entrance hall/lobby. There is a secondary kitchen/family room to the left which has access through to the walled courtyard garden and then a separate inner hallway leads off to the WC and upstairs to the second floor.

There are five bedrooms on this floor to the front of the house, of which four of these rooms are double rooms. Three of the rooms are front facing with views of Church Street and the two double rooms contain built in furniture for storage. The four double rooms all contain en-suites, which is perfect for larger families and guests who would like their own facilities. There is also an upstairs laundry room which has a lovely view over the rear garden.

Just off the entrance hall is the main kitchen/dining/family room, which is the centrepiece of this home. Extending to approximately 33 feet, with floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors set along the length of the room, it allows plenty of natural light to flood in. The courtyard garden is easily accessed via this room which has plenty of attractive flowers and shrubs. It's an ideal place for a seating area and entertaining during the summer months. The courtyard also has external lighting and power sockets.

The kitchen is traditional and in keeping with the style of this home, there are lower ceilings and the long, wooden beam is striking and spans the length of the room. It's a great place for entertaining or relaxing and leads off towards the study and conservatory. The fireplace in the dining area is fitted with an attractive and easy to maintain gas fuelled log fire.

At the end of the kitchen there is a further hallway leading to a study, utility room, and ground floor shower room. These offer versatility and the option to use this area as a separate guest or family space.

The sunny conservatory can be found to the rear of the property overlooking the main garden. It has a side door to a covered canopy which leads out to the store room and into the rear garden. The views from the patio here are both peaceful and private, making it an excellent place to relax or entertain.

Just off the family room is a second set of stairs which lead up to the sixth bedroom and a further reception room or leisure room. This bedroom is currently used as the principal bedroom and contains a dressing area and an en-suite. Historic records indicate that this upstairs area was previously used as a bar area and an assembly room in the 1800's, where public parties and games would have been held. In more recent times, it has retained its function for family leisure, with a full size snooker table and snug area. This part of the house has the potential for a considerable number of uses for leisure and working from home.

The interior configuration of this home undoubtedly comes with a multitude of possibilities, which will give its new owners plenty of options to use how they see fit. The current owner obtained planning permission in 1990 for change of use to use the back part of the house as a children's day nursery (The Cherry Tree Nursery), which was accessed via the park next door. Although the nursery was relocated, the current owner has confirmed via the local council that the property still has active permission to use part of the house as a nursery.

The rear garden is extensive and backs onto The Woodlands, where access is gained via secure gates. There is a large area laid with lawn and a separate allotment area. There is also a Summer house, car port, shed and greenhouse and there are plenty of mature trees, shrubbery and established plants which are dotted around the gardens. With the property dating back to at least the 1700's, the garden was previously a burgage plot with medieval origins. This would historically have been made available to a 'freeman' in return for services or rent who had the opportunity to use the land to make a living.

This property also has recent planning permission to replace the conservatory and outside canopy area with an extension incorporating the storeroom and creating a larger undercover space. The plans are available if required.

Viewings are available by request and this home will attract plenty of interest. If you would like further information, please contact the office.
