An impressive and substantial semi-detached villa dating back to the early 1900's and located in a sought-after residential area on the west side of Louth with deep front and rear gardens and a detached double garage. 4 double bedrooms, bathroom, two shower rooms, 3 reception rooms, garden room, cloakroom/WC, spacious dining-kitchen, elegant hallway and gallery landing above. Directions
From St. James' Church in the centre of Louth proceed north along Bridge Street into Grimsby Road and after a very short distance bear left along St. Mary's Lane. Continue until number 34 is found on the right side standing well back from, and in a slightly elevated position above the road. The Property
Believed to have been constructed around 1913 and very much in the style of a typical Edwardian villa, this substantial semi-detached family house has rendered principal walls beneath pitched timber roof structures which are now covered in concrete tiles.
The property has a combination of single-glazed, double-glazed, and secondary glazing, the latter creating triple glazing in the case of some windows and the former retaining the original casements and scroll handles. Heating is by a modern gas central heating system with condensing boiler and the house has a security alarm system. The detached garage positioned at the rear has been constructed to complement the style of the house, with rendered brick walls beneath a high, pitched timber roof structure covered in clay pan tiles.
This property provides elegant and beautifully proportioned accommodation with a splendid entrance hall and gallery landing typical of the era and a versatile room layout. Until recently, the first floor included five bedrooms, but the present owner has tastefully converted the smallest fifth bedroom into a stylish, contemporary ensuite dressing room to the master bedroom in addition to the ensuite shower room. There is a first-floor family bathroom and a smaller separate shower room accessed from the rear landing. The two main reception rooms are positioned at the front of the house, each with feature bay window and there is a third, cosy reception room to the rear and a garden room, in addition to a spacious modern dining kitchen.
The property stands on a generous size plot with a driveway providing ample parking space to the front of the house before continuing past the side of the property to the garage which also has a parking forecourt. Viewing
