A Historic English Country House with Restored Interiors

Newton House is a Georgian manor located in a picturesque village in the English county of South Lincolnshire. The origins of this dower house date back to the 17th century, and this year, for the first time in its 400-year history, the house has been put up for sale.

In recent years, the house has undergone a careful restoration project, and the interiors are now a beautiful blend of historic architecture with contemporary additions like the new kitchen and bathroom.

The house’s main south-facing façade and secondary range were added in the 18th century, in this rooms you will find beautiful Georgian detailing. However, the core of the house is an earlier timber-framed house dating from the 17th century.

The manor house received its name from John Newton, who leased the house from the Irnham Estate in 1699. John Newton was a relative of Sir Isaac Newton, whose grandfather bought Woolsthorpe Manor from the Irnham Estate. Sir Isaac spent much of his childhood here, and the manor is now owned by the National Trust.
