Set over two thirds of an acre (subject to survey) and positioned directly opposite South Elkington's All Saints Church with south westerly parkland views across to the beautiful countryside beyond.

    Full planning has been granted for this architect designed individual and contemporary home providing versatile 6-bedroom accommodation which by design could easily be a 4-bed with 2-bed private annex extending to around 420 square metres. Externally a walled courtyard, driveway and garaging provide ample space for a large family with extensive owned amenity space extending to the rear as shown in the aerial imagery.

    Location The plot and proposed dwelling stands in a sought-after Wolds village surrounded by scenic countryside and a short walk from the village store, but only 2.5 miles from Louth market town. There are some lovely walks through the surrounding fields, hills and woodland which pass through the village and can be joined directly from the property.

    Louth has many individual shops, 3 markets each week, excellent schools including the King Edward VI grammar, sports facilities, cinema, theatre and the Kenwick Park Leisure and Equestrian Centre on the outskirts. Main regional business centre's are along the South Humber coast and in the City of Lincoln.

    Directions From Louth head towards Market Rasen along Westgate and follow the road to the bypass roundabout. Take the second exit along the A157 and after a short distance bear right at the fork along the A631, again towards Market Rasen. Follow the road over the hill and down through the wooded area to South Elkington village and turn left into Church Lane immediately before the village stores. Follow the lane and as you pass the Church on the left, the property is directly opposite on the right.

    The Proposed Dwelling and Plot The Plot enjoys a stunning position directly opposite All Saints Church with superb south westerly views across the surrounding Wolds countryside. In total the plot extends to around two thirds of an acre (subject to survey) extending to the north with open amenity space. The proposed dwelling is well positioned with the courtyard and windows facing the Southerly aspect and Church. An existing access off Church lane will be retained for the driveway access. An existing modern agricultural building on site measuring around 8.5 x 6.5 metres (90 x 70 Foot) will be demolished as part of the development. The dilapidated crew yard and eastern boundary wall will be reinstated and retained respectively which are listed through virtue of their relationship to the adjacent Grade 2 listed Church Farm.

    The proposed dwelling will be a mixture of 1 and 2 storey elements which has been designed specifically to respond to the constraints and character of the existing site. The ground floor level will be encased in a new boundary wall which will be formed from red brick laid in a garden wall bond. The new build 'L Shape' element will have a flat roof terrace so that it is disguised behind the boundary wall creating privacy for residents and minimising the impact on the church. The living spaces will have an overhanging roof to create solar shading.

    The reinstated crew yard element along the eastern boundary will be 1 storey in height with a central apex roof to mimic the structure which was once in situ.

    A linear 2 storey element will be created along the northern boundary and will allow views to the church from the significant views to the north and west to be vastly enhanced. It will have a central apex ridge with gable ends to reflect the character of the more modern agricultural buildings in the locality. Externally there are two areas of private garden space, one in the courtyard and another space by bedrooms 5&6 which will be enclosed within the boundary walls to create privacy and a sense of place.

    Accommodation The dwelling has been designed with contemporary and versatile living in mind covering around 420 square metres (4,500 sq Ft) and the layout can be viewed on the enclosed plans and comprises; connecting glazed hallway to the open plan living kitchen dining area and separate snug both with glazed doors to the courtyard. Continuing through is a pantry, utility, WC and office or home gym. A bedroom wing extending to the front houses two bedrooms both with ensuite facilities.

The landing leads to the master suite with dressing and ensuite facilities with a further ensuite bedroom.

A large walled courtyard provides a private space to relax with ample driveway parking with double or triple garage, store and boot room.
