Directions From St James' Church travel south along Upgate and turn right immediately after the zebra crossing along Gospelgate. At the end of the road turn left and immediately right along Crowtree Lane. Continue for some distance passing Westgate Fields on the right and then take the small left turn into Little Crowtree Lane. The property is then just a short way along on the left side.

The Property This intriguing and thoughtfully designed, highly individual bungalow was constructed approximately 10 years ago and has brick faced exterior walls with flowing curves which are mirrored by a slender sloping roof structure with a Uginox roof covering. Heating is provided by a gas fired central heating system with a condensing combination boiler. Internal doors are 6-panelled and finished in oak, while the windows are double glazed and contemporary in style, some extending from floor level within the rooms. The external appearance belies the feeling of space within as the rooms have surprisingly high vaulted ceilings in contrast with the low, understated elevations when the property is viewed from Little Crowtree Lane. Designed for this plot, the shape and position of the bungalow create a sun trap courtyard at the side, enveloped by the living rooms and hallways with French doors from both reception rooms. There is a gravelled parking forecourt of very generous proportions and a lawned garden to the rear with a timber garden shed.

Situation The setting equals the property in terms of unique appeal. Positioned in a quiet, established and very sought-after residential area, Little Crowtree Lane is a small no-through lane close to the Louth Golf Club and just a few yards from the scenic parkland of Westgate Fields. Crowtree Lane itself culminates in a local landmark, a park known as Hubbards Hills with high grass banks, woodland and the River Lud winding through.

Accommodation (Approximate room dimensions are shown on the floor plans which are indicative of the room layout and not to specific scale). In general, the rooms have surprisingly high, sloping or part-sloping ceilings, shaped to the contours of the roof.

Main Entrance At the side of the property, where a part-glazed door with decorative patterned and beveled panes opens into the:

Entrance Hallway L-shaped overall with the facing wall curving round to a 1.45m wide, walk-through opening to the lounge creating a semi open plan feel to the reception area. Door chimes, digital central heating control, radiator and window from floor level facing the courtyard.

Lounge An attractive sitting area with a coal-effect electric fire set into a ceramic-tiled and painted, pillared surround. Two side windows, one from floor level and French doors on the facing wall onto the courtyard. Double radiator and 2m wide walk through opening, again creating an open-plan arrangement to the:

Dining Room Ceiling light point, two wall uplighters, two double radiators and a further pair of French doors onto the courtyard.

Kitchen Fitted units finished in cream with subtle coach-lines and oiled beech-block work surfaces with an inset white ceramic Belfast sink and tall mixer tap. There are base cupboards and drawers, wall units with pelmet lighting beneath which illuminate the work surfaces, a tall glazed dresser display unit with drawers, space with plumbing for dishwasher and space for an under-counter refrigerator. Blomberg gas cooker with four rings, oven and grill. Extractor fan, dual aspect windows facing the garden and part-glazed door with decorative shaped glazing complementing the main front door.

Bedroom 2 Presently set out as a double room with a large wardrobe which will be removed before completion. Two side windows with venetian blinds, radiator and four floating wall shelves.

Bathroom White suite comprising low-level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and bath with painted side panel and shower fittings to the mixer tap. Ceramic-tiled splash backs, illuminated circular wall mirror and mirror fronted wall cabinet. Side window, extractor fan and recessed ceiling spotlights.

Outside A gravelled forecourt across the full width of the plot allows easy access and ample space to park and turn more than one car without difficulty. From here a walled and block-paved pathway slopes gently down and leads around to the main entrance with curved walls. The delightful gardens are enclosed by fencing and comprise an attractive lawn to the rear with gravel borders for tubs and pots, a long courtyard finished in block paving and orientated for the sun with a brick-walled, raised flower bed adjacent and screen fencing on either side of the property with secure, high gates. The gardens enjoy the mature surroundings in this area of the town and in one corner, enclosed by trelliswork with climbing plants, there is a timber Garden Shed with water butt and storage space surrounding. Exterior wall lighting and outside water tap.
