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 open-plan kitchen, dining, and sitting room are located in the oldest part of the house, as you can see in the exposed beams. The entire room has a flagstone floor with underfloor heating.
The large central island prep table is made from antique pine, and a black electric Aga stove is set in the tiled hearth.
The new kitchen has cabinets from Plain English in a muted gray shade that is paired with a Carrara marble worktop and brass handles.
The end of the room is transformed into a cozy seating area with the television hidden behind cupboards and two canted bay windows with seating.
Through the service corridor, you enter the pantry with Plain English cabinets and a terracotta floor.
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.
The formal living room in the Georgian part of the house is painted in a beautiful calm shade and features a wood burner and a strapwork plaster ceiling.
The dining room is fully paneled and has a door leading to the butler’s passage to the kitchen.
The bathroom has a black and white marble floor, a shower enclosure with marble tiles, and Fired Earth chrome plated brassware.
In total, there are eight bedrooms in the manor house.
One of the bathrooms is a beautiful space with a dark wooden floor, a clawfoot bath, and a window seat overlooking the gardens.
Many of the house’s original joinery has been preserved, including six-panel doors to all rooms and many shuttered windows. The brass ironmongery is all specially sourced antique designs, including beautiful rim locks, beehive handles, and decorative escutcheons.
The house is constructed from squared and coursed limestone, with ashlar quoins and dressings.
Wrapped around the entire house is a walled garden, mainly laid to lawn with lime trees and a beautiful mature cherry tree.
