Willoughby Grange is a handsome and well presented individual period house constructed in 1844 of Ancaster stone beneath slate roofs and has been comprehensively refurbished during recent years to offer nicely proportioned accommodation of considerable character. There are three good reception rooms, a garden room, farmhouse style kitchen, cloakroom and cellar, whilst at first floor level are four good bedrooms, an en-suite shower room, family bathroom and a separate shower room. The majority of the sash windows have been replaced with matching double glazed units and character features include high coved ceilings and open fireplaces. Outside there are established private gardens with an existing garage and the potential to construct a new garage block, subject to obtaining any necessary consents.

West Willoughby is situated on the A153 approximately 6 miles north east of Grantham and 8 miles west of Sleaford. Lincoln and Nottingham are 22 and 30 miles by road and the nearby larger village of Ancaster contains a range of amenities including a nursery, primary school, doctors' surgery, Co-op, butchers and public houses. More comprehensive shops and other amenities are available in Sleaford and Grantham where there are also popular local grammar schools. There are trains to London Kings Cross from Grantham with a journey time of around 70 minutes and also a useful cross country service into Nottingham. The A1 runs just to the west of Grantham and provides excellent north south road communications.
