A superbly presented, improved and extended detached four-bedroomed family house with a contemporary spacious living/dining kitchen, two reception rooms, re-fitted bathroom, en suite shower room and cloaks/WC, together with a long driveway leading to a substantial detached double garage. A turn-key opportunity. Directions
From St. James' church in the centre of Louth proceed north along Bridge Street into Grimsby Road and continue up and over the hill. Hill Rise is then the first turning on the right and number three is positioned at the end of the road and set back on the right. The Property
Around 30 years old, the house is of handsome traditional design and was built by a local long-standing and reputable construction firm - Heywood and Bannister. The external walls are faced in hand-made Dutch bricks with rebated pointing and diagonally cut soldier arches over window/doors, together with part-rendered and timbered panels in Tudor style beneath pitched timber roof structures covered in concrete tiles. The complementary detached double garage is an impressive building in its own right with a high pitched and tiled roof constructed with a collar and purlin frame.
Both the house and garage have replacement mahogany-effect uPVC double-glazed windows and pedestrian doors with a square leaded effect to the external panes and the original fascias and soffits have been replaced in matching mahogany-effect, low maintenance uPVC. There is a security alarm system.
The house has been meticulously maintained and considerably improved by the present owners. An extension to the rear has been carefully designed and built in keeping with the original style and building materials and has created a superb contemporary living/dining kitchen with semi-vaulted ceiling and three Velux skylight windows, together with window and French doors onto the rear garden. There are two reception rooms and the house design includes a two-storey bay to the front elevation whereby both the lounge and master bedroom have feature walk-in bay windows.
The original bathroom, en suite shower room and cloakroom have all been re-fitted in recent times with white suites and central heating is by a condensing gas-fired boiler which was installed around two years ago. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms, one currently fitted with full-length wardrobes and used as a spacious dressing room.
The house stands well back from Hill Rise and is approached over a long, paved driveway which creates extensive parking space, before opening onto a paved forecourt with drainage, before the garage. The gardens are laid out for ease of maintenance with a lawned principal rear garden of good size, enclosed by screen hedges for privacy and there is a timber garden shed tucked away at the side.
