A building plot adjacent is for sale either separately or could be acquired in conjunction with the house. The grounds may well afford potential for further residential development subject to planning permission.

    Directions From St. James' church in the centre of Louth proceed north along Bridge Street and after crossing the River Lud take the first left turn along St. Mary's Lane. Continue almost to the end of the road and look for the small lane on the right-hand side giving access to a number of properties on the hillside. Turn along this lane and go up the hill until the lane veers sharp right and at this point there are driveways leading off the bend to left, centre and right. The right drive leads to number 52 and then gives access to another property beyond. (See full details on "Outside" regarding the access).

    The Property Believed to date back to 1929, the house has part-rendered and colour-washed, and part attractive brick-faced principal external walls beneath pitched and hipped timber roof structures covered in Rosemary style roof tiles. The windows are mahogany style, uPVC-framed, double-glazed units and heating is by a gas-fired central heating system with a pressurised hot water system.

    The original house has been significantly extended in recent years creating additional reception areas and an impressive master bedroom suite with Juliet Balcony. The detached garage has rendered walls beneath a pitched concrete tiled roof.

    The exceptionally spacious, mature grounds do afford potential for further residential development, subject to planning permission, and this property is being offered for sale with no overage clause or restrictive covenant imposed by the current owner in this regard. Applicants should note that outline planning permission was obtained on the far south-east corner of the grounds for a single dwelling and the plot is being marketed by this agent separately but could be acquired in conjunction with the main house (NB the plot is shown with blue outline on the aerial image).

    Outside The property stands in surprisingly large, mature grounds of more than 1 acre (STS). To the south-east a building plot with outline planning permission is for sale separately through our agency or could be acquired with the house if not sold independently. The grounds are considered to be large enough to accommodate at least one further good size building plot subject to planning permission.

    From the top of the small lane, the privately owned gravel driveway continues towards the house before branching right into a large parking forecourt. This also gives access to the detached double garage. NB the house to the north is accessed by a right of way across the driveway of 52 close to the western-most boundary.

    The delightful gardens are largely laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubbery beds creating a private and secluded outdoor space. The main lawn stands on the south side of the house with a patio, handrail and steps down. The greenery screens the house from the building plot which is felt to have little impact on the house or its grounds.

    On the north side there is a raised lawn with a timber Summer House and a chicken or duck shed by the garage. There is a large patio adjacent to the house with an ornamental pond and steps up through low fencing and a rustic arch to the lawn beyond.

    Detached Double Garage The garage is constructed in rendered blockwork with piers internally and has a pitched concrete tiled roof. There are two up and over doors, electric lighting and power points.

    Location Louth is positioned on the eastern fringes of the Lincolnshire Wolds with easy access by car or on foot across the rolling hills. There are popular, busy markets three times each week and many local seasonal and specialist events take place throughout the year. The town has a fine choice of cafes, restaurants, wine bars and pubs with a current trend towards a continental style, street café environment.

    There are highly regarded primary schools and academies including the King Edward VI Grammar The Meridian Sports and Swimming Complex has been built in recent years complementing the London Road Sports Grounds and Hall, a tennis academy, bowls, football club, golf club and the Kenwick Park Leisure Centre also with swimming pool, golf course and an equestrian centre.

    Louth has a thriving theatre, a cinema and attractive parks on the west side of town in Hubbard's Hills and Westgate Fields. The coast is about 10 miles away from Louth at its nearest point and the area around Louth has many fine country walks and bridleways.
